Its aftertouch-enabled keybed will delight synth players; the faders can control the virtual drawbars of an organ, and at the flick of a switch, control the levels in your DAW; custom chords can be stored within the performance pads for intuitive live triggering. Every user will find their own unique way of making KeyLab 88 MkII their perfect, professional controller.
In addition to the full-sized MIDI in and out connectors, we have spiced the KeyLab 88 MkII with 4 CV outputs and a CV input. Leading the way in modular control, users can send pitch, gate, and 2 modulation sources to analog gear. This full-featured controller also boasts 5 expression pedal inputs to satisfy even the most advanced performance setups.
Smart Software Integration
Even as a standalone premium controller, KeyLab 88 MkII is great value for money, but it has even more to offer. KeyLab 88 MkII comes complete with Arturia’s new award-winning Analog Lab 4, giving users access to thousands of synth and keyboard sounds and a new dedicated stage/performance mode. Piano V, a masterful collection of physically modeled pianos - the perfect pairing with KeyLab 88 MkII’s incredible expressive keyboard. Our acclaimed Vox Continental V instrument is also included, letting users relish in the amazing classic 60s organ tone. The package also includes Wurli V - Arturia’s amazingly accurate physical model of the famous Wurlitzer 200A electric piano. KeyLab 88 MkII features dedicated, intelligently mapped controls for all Arturia instruments, and includes Ableton Live Lite, so musicians can start recording and producing their ideas straight out of the box.
