Where the
story starts

  • JANUARY 2002

    Storm, precursor to Lab series

    Before the Lab series, before the Brutes, before everything - there was Storm. An end-to-end music production suite for your personal computer, Storm was the solution for aspiring producers and musicians who needed to realise their ideas at home. It paved the way for creative virtual instruments - the foundation of the Lab range.

  • MARCH 2010

    V Collection

    For the first time, our groundbreaking selection of virtual instrument emulations became available in a single inspiring package that continues to evolve to this day. These coveted instruments, from the Mini V to the Prophet V, united under the V Collection banner, gave musicians and producers unprecedented access to timeless sound, setting the standard for iconic instrument software recreations.

  • NOVEMBER 2010

    Analog Laboratory

    An all-in-one softsynth solution, Analog Laboratory was built to cater to the needs of the modern producer - the need for instant access to classic sounds. With 3500 iconic synthesizer sounds built-in, and the ability to accurately adjust parameters, it became a go-to softsynth toolkit, eventually evolving into 2016’s Analog Lab

  • JANUARY 2013


    In 2013, MiniLab answered the call for a tactile, hands-on way of controlling our synth emulations, as well as DAW projects. With enough knobs, pads, and keys for any session or performance, and a slim, portable form-factor, MiniLab was an instant hit. It’s acclaimed successor, MiniLab MkII, was released in 2016. Plug-and-play integration, along with included software like Analog Lab Lite, made it an industry favorite.

  • MAY 2016

    Analog Lab

    An evolution of its Laboratory predecessor, Analog Lab introduced thousands of new presets from V Collection’s expanded collection of legendary synth emulations. With simple controls, seamless Lab hardware integration, and an instant-access library, Analog Lab raised the bar for softsynth workflow, constantly evolving with more sounds and features to meet modern producers’ needs.

  • APRIL 2017

    KeyLab Essential series

    The KeyLab Essentials expanded the well-established KeyLab line-up, originally unveiled in 2013. With 49, 61 and 88-key versions, they offered a streamlined music-making experience that went far beyond a simple MIDI keyboard - but with an affordable price tag. An array of useful controls, along with seamless Analog Lab and DAW compatibility, made professional recording and performance more accessible than ever before.

Anatomy of the Lab

The technology that sets the Lab range apart, setting the standard for musical hardware and software.

  • TAE® : True Analog Emulation allows our software instruments to reproduce classic instrument sounds with unparalleled accuracy, from the raw power of analog oscillators to the detailed soft-clipping behavior of classic circuitry.

  • Phi® : We calculated and engineered the vibrations and harmonic detail of physical resonance, from piano strings to acoustic ambience, for expressive and accurate software instruments without a single sample.

  • DAW integration : The Lab controllers feature multiple usage modes, engineered in detail to fit right into your creative flow. This lets you control software instruments, DAW projects, or perform freely - it\'s like having multiple controllers in one.
