Creating music in the digital world is not always easy. Too many elements can easily distract us and it is necessary to learn a large number of functions. With this in mind: Keylab Essential goes to the basics and lets you focus on the most important. These new control keyboards display a production that breathes quality while offering a resolutely modern appearance. The maxim of Arturia: 1 button for 1 function is also present on these new keyboards which do not lack charm.
Minimal cable and space.
Even if it sounds incredible, the Keylab Essential is powered by USB, allowing it to control your music software with just one cable. In order to simplify its installation, it uses a compliant class driver (understand: already integrated into the system) in order to be recognized automatically. Let's stay in the unlikely world by noting that at this price, the Keylab Essential even offers a Midi socket to control your synthesizers or expanders.
Quality keyboard mechanics.
If the Keylab Essential gives a feeling of solidity, it is of course thanks to the rigidity of its shell but also by the quality of its keyboard. Put your fingers on this master keyboard and you will understand what quality mechanics is. The Keylab Essential offers a real pleasure to play.
A keyboard that tracks the progress of your software.
Most keyboards promise to manage your music software. Only, most often, it is only the current software version. It's a safe bet that the next updates will be problematic. To avoid this inconvenience, Arturia has opted for the integration of the HUI protocol integrated into all digital audio software (Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic, Digital Performer, Pro Tools, Studio One, Reaper, etc ...). This trick helps to ensure compatibility, regardless of the version of the software used. Class, right?
A plethora of software offerings.
More than 6000 sounds of legendary synthesizers are provided with the Analog Lab 3 software. These thousands of sounds come from the famous V-Collection 6. As if that were not enough, Arturia adds Ableton Live Lite, the digital audio software most used in the world and finally the Grand Piano D UVI which allows you to play a high-end sampled grand piano.
