Store up to 10 User maps to perfectly suit your setup, from controlling multiple effects and VSTs at once, to giving you full and total control of every parameter of a virtual instrument.

Amazing software

Every KeyLab MkII comes complete with an exciting collection of software titles that let you start performing and recording straight out of the box. Two full Arturia titles are included - Analog Lab 3 and Piano V 2, letting you not only enjoy over 6,000 incredible vintage synth and keyboard sounds from Arturia’s award-winning V Collection, but also a comprehensive physically modelled piano suite. If you are new to the world of recording, or simply want to try out a different DAW, KeyLab MkII also includes Ableton Live Lite, an introduction to one of the most popular recording and performance platforms in the world. Record, create, mix, edit, effect, and release, all from the comfort of one free software package.

Modular compatibility

KeyLab MkII’s control voltage connectivity lets you open up to the world of vintage synthesizers and Eurorack modular. Featuring 4 CV outputs to control pitch, gate, and 2 modulation sources, you can send live performance or DAW-controlled automation to your modular gear. It also sports a CV input, which translates incoming signals from modules to MIDI/USB data, ready for your DAW.
