Toughness you can rely on

Durable, yet stylish, KeyLab Essential is designed to withstand the demands of live performance while retaining Arturia’s iconic, ergonomic design.

We listened very carefully to our community of musicians, producers, and performers, and created a controller keyboard to suit each of their needs. Dynamic and sensitive enough to capture the nuance of every performance; tough enough to withstand life on tour; and with a streamlined, sleek format.

KeyLab Essential delivers incredible functionality, but not at the cost you could expect for this level of quality.

KeyLab Essential will go the distance, ignite your creativity, and make the process of music-making easy and fun.
