Description

Laboratory61

The Laboratory is the Analog Experience taken to a whole new level. Tweak any of the thousands presets directly in the Analog Laboratory software. Or you can open the preset with the Analog Classic synthesizers that you own, for full editing capability.

Create splits and layers in The Laboratory for live performance, and trigger any of the included loops from the touch pads for one-of-a-kind live performance.

With a feature-rich 61-key MIDI keyboard controller the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Press Clipping

"Hybrid solutions of Arturia’s twin product lines makes perfect sense. As you’d expect with Arturia’s pedigree, the sounds are wonderful. The keyboard is a worthwhile addition with greatly extended control for both Laboratory and full-plugs too. Without question, this is the most must-have Analog Experience to date."
