The Arturia Keylab 61 MKII is a premium-grade MIDI keyboard controller, finished in black. It builds on the success of the original Keylab and includes a range of high-end components.
The Keylab 61 MKII features a 61-note velocity-sensitive keybed with aftertouch, borrowed from Arturia’s flagship MatrixBrute synthesizer. The keybed provides maximum expression and fluid playability, accompanied by modulation and pitch bend wheels for added control.
Performance Pads, Encoders, and Rotary Controls
In addition to the premium-grade keybed, the Keylab MKII includes 16 RGB backlit performance pads ideal for finger drumming and triggering samples, as well as 9 large faders and 9 rotary knobs for controlling automation, volume, and other parameters. It also features magnetic overlays for annotating the 16 transport controls for maximum control within your DAW.
Seamless DAW Integration
The Keylab MKII integrates seamlessly with a wide range of DAWs including Ableton, Reason, FL Studio, and Logic, and includes quick access buttons for quickly loading and using patches. It comes complete with Ableton Live Lite, Piano V, and Analog Lab software.
Design and Connectivity
The Keylab MKII features a sleek aluminium chassis with real wood side panels and a built-in LED screen with navigation wheel for changing settings. The rear of the unit includes sustain and expression inputs, as well as 3 configurable AUX inputs for creative control in both studio and stage applications. It also boasts integrated modular connectivity, using CV pitch, gate, and 2 modulation controls for use with external synths and Eurorack modules.
