KeyLab under the hood
Our 61-key keyboard controller is made for maximum expression and performance, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to high-quality knobs, faders, assignable switches and 16 of the best-feeling pads around.
This premium controller is a perfect match for the included Analog Lab software; the preassigned controls make an ideal hybrid solution for plug-and-play sound creation. Simply connect KeyLab 61 to Analog Lab and you can put your mouse away, enjoying the same workflow as with a traditional hardware synthesizer.
With KeyLab 61 you have unparalleled access to 5000 sounds modeled after the most classic synthesizers and keyboards of all time. The innovative Multi mode provides layer/split functions, so you can layer these sounds and play them at the same time while adding professional-grade effects.
And as with the entire KeyLab series, the keyboard and controls can be easily used with any other music software.
