KeyLab 88: a professional-grade, 88-note MIDI controller keyboard
An extensive array of controls, a stylish yet amazingly lightweight design, and brilliant integration with laptops and tablets: KeyLab 88 is perfect for modern keyboard players, pianists, demanding stage performers, and professional producers who will not compromise on quality. KeyLab 88 sets a new standard in professional controller keyboards.
The Best Control Of Synthesis
As a professional hybrid synthesizer, KeyLab 88 offers the immediacy of a hardware synthesizer combined with the flexibility of a software-based solution.
The keyboard is entirely preassigned to work with the included Analog Lab software, giving you immediate and in-depth control over your sound. Change the filter cutoff, the resonance, adjust the 2 ADSR envelopes, and much more: as soon as the idea hits, it can happen.
But KeyLab 88 also acts as a Universal MIDI controller, compatible with any third-party software and hardware. MIDI Assignments can be customized for virtually any form of music technology using the LED screen or the included MIDI Control Center software.
A solution for the pianist of today
Thanks to the top quality, hammer-action Fatar keybed, the KeyLab 88 is the ideal companion for demanding performers.
Bundled with the Analog Lab software, KeyLab 88 offers an unparalleled, hands-on experience with the nearly 6000 TAE® synthesizer and electric piano sounds. Just fire up Analog Lab, connect the KeyLab 88, and you will be amazed at how well the experience matches the work-flow of a traditional hardware synthesizer. KeyLab 88 also comes with two virtual piano instruments.
KeyLab under the hood
The KeyLab 88 keyboard controller is made for performance and maximum expression. Designed with the modern musician in mind, the KeyLab 88 is the perfect companion for the professional musician who uses a laptop or an iPad®.
This premium controller features a hammer-action keybed from Fatar and is a perfect match for the included Analog Lab software. Pre-assigned controls make this the ideal solution for on-the-spot sound creation. Simply connect KeyLab 88 to Analog Lab and you can put your mouse away, enjoying the same workflow you would have with a traditional hardware synthesizer.
KeyLab 88 offers a new depth of control over your favorite synthesizers and software. Its Multi mode allows sounds to be split and layered, its many controls can be configured for practically any MIDI purpose, and its great-feeling pads are ready to launch clips, play chords, sweep a filter, or let you take an impromptu drum solo!
And since it is USB class-compliant, KeyLab 88 is compatible with any other music software you own.
More than just another keyboard
The foundation of the KeyLab 88 is its high-quality, hammer-action Fatar keybed, created to give you the response and feel of a fine acoustic piano. Then we added transport controls to work with your favorite DAW, along with plenty of assignable knobs, sliders, and buttons to give you hands-on control over all the most popular plug-ins and devices. To top it off we included 16 of the best velocity- and pressure-sensitive drum pads on the market.
We understand the needs keyboard players have, and with an 88-note keyboard in your workspace you still need to have access to the creative devices you use. So we expanded the real-world usability of the KeyLab 88 with some simple but exceptionally useful features.
First, we included a removable music stand that can not only hold your favorite fake book of 10,000 songs, but also double as an iPad stand. Whether you prefer landscape mode, as when using your favorite iOS synths and DAWs, or portrait mode for sheet music apps, the KeyLab 88 can accommodate your needs.
We also provide an extension shelf for the right rear section of the KeyLab 88, which creates a large work surface for placement of your laptop or a small synth (like a MicroBrute) right on top. This gives you unsurpassed access to the devices you need without resorting to other stands or awkward working solutions.
MIDI Control Center
Our MIDI Control Center software allows you to edit the parameters of each KeyLab preset quickly and easily. With an intuitive user interface and the Arturia hardware shown on the screen, you can tailor the controls of your KeyLab 88 to match the settings of your favorite plug-ins and DAWs.
