More incredible software

KeyLab Essential comes with a veritable treasure trove of high quality music software.

Designed with you in mind

KeyLab Essential is forward-thinking, modern hardware with incredible flexibility. As a creator, focus on creating. Constraints? Compatibility? We already took care of this.

Blending power with simplicity, and functionality with connectivity, our designers have created a controller that can truly become the backbone of your studio. KeyLab Essential’s DAW Command Center uses both MCU and HUI protocols: two popular data languages that let hardware instruments and DAWs communicate with each other. This means that you’ll be able to go beyond the potential of standard MIDI and use its transport controls no matter what recording software you use.

Used alongside the Arturia MIDI Control Center, you are able to create your own unique MIDI mappings, and save up to 6 of them to KeyLab’s internal memory. Using this functionality is a great way of tailoring the controls to match the settings of your favorite plug-ins and the rest of your audio environment.

KeyLab Essential is a class-compliant MIDI controller, meaning you can control DAW apps and virtual instruments on your iPad by using a Lightning to USB “Camera Adapter”, and on your Android devices using USB.

“I can’t do that” isn’t a phrase KeyLab Essential understands. With this controller at your side, anything is possible.

Toughness you can rely on

Durable, yet stylish, KeyLab Essential is designed to withstand the demands of live performance while retaining Arturia’s iconic, ergonomic design.

We listened very carefully to our community of musicians, producers, and performers, and created a controller keyboard to suit each of their needs. Dynamic and sensitive enough to capture the nuance of every performance; tough enough to withstand life on tour; and with a streamlined, sleek format. KeyLab Essential delivers incredible functionality, but not at the cost you could expect for this level of quality.

KeyLab Essential will go the distance, ignite your creativity, and make the process of music-making easy and fun.
