KeyLab 49 combines a professional-grade MIDI keyboard with our powerful Analog Lab software environment. With 49 keys, 2 banks of 10 encoders, 2 banks of 9 faders, 10 assignable switches and 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, KeyLab 49 is perfect for studio and live use. Perfectly matched to the included Analog Lab software, with an integrated user interface and 6000 sounds from our V Collection line of products, KeyLab 49 is more than a controller: it is an instrument unto itself.

This 49-key controller keyboard was designed for maximum performance and expression, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to a bevy of knobs, faders and highly responsive pads. The back panel connections include breath controller, MIDI in/out, expression and sustain pedals and an aux pedal input. This is a top-notch controller for any hardware or software, but its comprehensive control of our Analog Lab software is the pièce de résistance: its preassigned controls make this combination the perfect hybrid solution for plug-and-play sound creation.

Arturia Keylab 61 MKII

I think Arturia makes really nice controller keyboards and based on my experience with the Keylab 49 MK II I would say they feel solid. Knobs are easy to dial, but they don't feel cheap, it's not like they start to move when you barely touch them (I hate that). The keys have a...
