Workflow That Works
When you’re in a creative space, you need music tools that inspire you. Every element of KeyLab MkII has been carefully designed to reduce any distractions, and provide time-saving shortcuts that will keep your head in the zone. KeyLab MkII features three distinct modes that you can instantly switch between for insanely efficient workflow.
Analog Lab ModeThe Analog Lab mode gives you ultimate control over this powerful included software, automatically mapping KeyLab MkII’s controls to specific functions and parameters within Analog Lab. The Category buttons let you instantly alter your search for the right sound, while the jog wheel gives you precise control over preset browsing and selection. The Live button can be used to activate Split mode and set the split point.
DAW ModeThe DAW mode quickly switches control to elements within your recording software. In this mode, the central jog wheel lets you move the playback cursor; the Next and Prev buttons let you shift focus on tracks by 1 or 8 channels at a time; the faders and knobs control the track levels and pan; and the Track Select buttons let you focus on particular tracks, letting you use the extensive DAW Commands on specific tracks.
User ModeThe User mode lets you control how KeyLab MkII works. Quickly choose one of the 10 User maps using the jog wheel, and practically every button, knob, fader, and pad on KeyLab MkII will react exactly as you choose. Using the full-featured Arturia MIDI Control Center, you’ll be able to assign any MIDI CC function you desire to any control you like, as well as set the minimum and maximum values to make sure you’re always hitting the sweet spot. If you use Massive, Serum, or Omnisphere you can create a map specifically for them.
DAW CommandsThe KeyLab MkII doesnt just offer thorough DAW control using the industry standard Mackie HUI data language, it also has 10 presets for some of the most popular recording software titles out there. To keep your session free of guessing, KeyLab MkII also provides you with 6 magnetic DAW overlays, so you’ll know exactly what every button does in your recording environment. This controller includes overlays for Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, Cubase, Studio One, Reaper, as well as standard Mackie and HUI setups.
Analog Lab Included
Unleashed Sonic PowerAnalog synthesizers. Digital synthesizers. Acoustic pianos. Electric pianos. Organs. Strings machines. With the best of 21 vintage instrument reproductions on available, Analog Lab lets you transcend time and style by arming you with everything from the most iconic sounds of the past to modern and cutting edge sound designs. If you’re composing, recording or performing, over 6500 sounds cover every song, genre, mood and ambience you can think of, without any programming required. Use it standalone or with a DAW of your choice.
More Incredible Software
Ableton Live LiteAn introduction to the world of Ableton Live, a high-powered software suite used by top producers, DJs, performers, and remixers. Track your ideas, layer your sounds, apply effects, warp your audio, and take complete control of its in-built drum machines and software effects to create full, complete tracks.
Live Lite is also fully compatible with KeyLab MkII, with every knob, fader, and pad automatically assigned to the most important features. Use the DAW Command Center to intuitively control playback without using your mouse of keyboard, letting you stay focused on the task at hand.
Piano VLetting you make full use of KeyLab MkII’s expressive keybed, Piano V is a comprehensive piano software suite that uses the power of Arturia’s Phi physical modelling to recreate iconic acoustic pianos. Put the sound of a legendary German concert grand in your tracks, or use a contemporary Japanese model to add some bite.
There’s even more esoteric instruments made possible through the magic of physical modelling like glass and metal, and every instrument features full control of multiple parameters to hone the sound of your ideal instrument.
More Possibilities Than EverKeyLab MkII’s modular options let you combine the worlds of MIDI and CV / gate like no other controller out there, and give you huge options for integrating your modular gear with your DAW. The rear panel includes five control voltage connections: Pitch Out, Gate Out, 2 Mod Outs and CV In. The CV outputs can be used to send control voltages and triggers to a modular synthesis system, while the input can be used to receive incoming control voltages and turn them into MIDI data that in your DAW. The voltage range can quickly be defined using the quick access “User Edit” mode, or through the free, dedicated hardware hub Arturia MCC.
As a result of this connectivity, KeyLab MkII can interface with practically any kind of music-making technology, letting you use external modulation sources for plug-in instruments in your DAW, like Analog Lab. You can also start to integrate your modular setup into your software projects by sending perfect, automated data to your modular gear. This level of control is what KeyLab MkII is all about.
KeyLab MkII isn’t just an incredible addition for your studio, it’s been built to withstand the rigors of live performance and last you a lifetime. Encased in a rugged aluminium chassis, and heald together with robust fixtures, KeyLab MkII is ready to perform consistently, show after show, with the reliability you need to be confident in your performance. KeyLab MkII’s RGB-backlit, touch and pressure-sensitive pads are not only tideal for finger drumming or triggering samples, they also open up exciting new ways of performing with chords and can be used in 3 different modes.
Pad ModeThe Pad mode is used to send MIDI notes or CC data, depending on how you’ve assigned it in the MCC. These dynamic, high-quality pads are great fun to perform and record percussion, and the colours can be assigned to specific pads to make it clear what type of sound, sample, or loop you’re triggering.
Chord MemoryKeyLab MkII’s Chord Memory mode lets you store up to 16 unique chords, each containing up to 6 notes. This can be set easily using the controller itself, or the Arturia MCC. Using this mode, you’ll be able to trigger chords with your left hand and play a melody on the keyboard with your right hand. You’ll be able to enjoy some factory preset chords straight away, too!
Chord TransposeThe Chord Transpose mode is slightly more advanced, letting you trigger chord shapes selected by the pads when playing notes on the keyboard. The note selected is played as the route note, and the pad you choose builds the chord around it. The this gives you huge creative potential , allowing you to experiment with harmonic overtones in your polyphonic lead sounds, create evolving, drifting pads, and much more.
Dedicated ControlsThe incredible Arturia Pro-Feel keybed has a stunning semi-weighted action that’s fast With enough for synth lead solos and organ sweeps, but tactile and responsive enough for traditional piano players to appreciate the quality. With the same keys as Arturia’s flagship hardware synthesizers MatrixBrute and MiniBrute 2, you’ll love playing on arguably the most impressive synth-action controllers available.
KeyLab MkII’s back panel features a range of pedal inputs too, and can be geared up to offer unbeatable control in the studio and on stage. Along with the usual sustain and expression pedal inputs, you’ll also find three auxiliary pedal inputs that can be assigned in the Arturia MCC. If you’d like to control amp gain, tremolo speed, and keyboard balance when you’re using an organ VST instrument like you’ll be able to find in Analog Lab 3, you can. If you’re a guitarist who uses amp simulation on stage, having dedicated pedals for your wah, volume, and reverb levels is incredible. Whatever custom creative setup you can imagine, KeyLab MkII can make it ha reality.
