KeyLab under the hood


The 49-key keyboard controller is made for performance and maximum expression, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to high quality knobs, faders, assignable switches and 16 of the best feeling pads around.

This premium controller gives you full access to our Analog Lab software; its pre-assigned controls make it the perfect solution for plug and play sound creation. Once the software is connected to the keyboard, you can put your mouse away and experience a workflow that is like using a traditional hardware synthesizer.
With Keylab 49, you get unparalleled access to over 5000 sounds that come from the most classic synthesizers and keyboards of all time. A new Multi mode allows you to layer these sounds to be played at the same time with the addition of effects, layer/split functions and a Chord mode.

In addition, the keyboard and controls (like all of the Keylab series) can be easily used with any other music software you want.

Software integration

Analog Lab is a virtual instrument, which means that sounds are processed within the computer.
It can be used as a stand-alone application or as a plug-in within your main sequencing or recording programs such as: Steinberg Cubase, Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Apple Logic Audio, MOTU Digital Performer, Cakewalk Sonar…

Hardware integration

Analog Lab supports customizable MIDI mapping allowing you to control the parameters you want to control with your favorite keyboard. Better than that, use an Arturia Keyboard controller and the interface will automatically change to show the knob and slider layouts so that you get a slick 1:1 user interface.
