Raising the bar for keyboard control
The KeyLab 88 MkII delivers everything that made the first KeyLab 88 a success; and now with the second generation, Arturia has upped the ante with major refinements to control, workflow, ergonomics, and quality. With its premium hammer-action Fatar keybed and smart DAW Command Center, KeyLab 88 MkII makes a perfect controller for gigging keyboardists. With instant access to multiple customizable user maps, you can configure its rotary knobs, faders, and pads to suit your workflow. What's more, you get an outstanding included software bundle that integrates seamlessly with the instrument.
Premium Fatar hammer-action keybed
Featuring a premium-quality, fully weighted 88-note Fatar hammer-action keybed that will delight the most serious pianists, KeyLab 88 MkII is perfect for the modern professional keyboard player, pianist, and producer who refuse to compromise on quality. Weighing in at just 32 pounds, KeyLab 88 MkII is an ideal stage and studio performance solution that sets a new standard for portable professional keyboard controllers.
Inspiring and expressive
No mere MIDI controller, KeyLab 88 MkII is a finely crafted instrument and an inspiring music creation tool that brings out the best of your creativity. While its authentic hammer action will satisfy the most demanding pianists, its aftertouch-enabled keybed is perfect for playing expressive synth parts. Playing an organ part? In addition to controlling the levels in your DAW, the nine faders are your drawbars. You can even store custom chords in the performance pads for intuitive, lighting-quick live triggering.
Connectivity à go-go
If you're into modular synthesis, you're going to love KeyLab 88 MkII. In addition to the traditional MIDI 5-pin DIN in and out connectors, Arturia souped up KeyLab 88 MkII with four CV outputs plus a CV input, so you can send pitch, gate, and two modulation sources to your analog gear. And to satisfy the most advanced performance setups, this full-featured controller is equipped with sustain, expression, and 3 assignable auxiliary pedal jacks.
A value-packed instrument with smart software integration
The Arturia KeyLab 88 MkII is an incredible value. It's a premium state-of-the-art controller, no doubt; but with the included Analog Lab software, it becomes a masterful self-contained instrument that gives you instant access to more than 6,500 synth and keyboard sounds and a new dedicated stage/performance mode that makes patch selection effortless. Piano V is a superb collection of physically modeled pianos — a perfect pairing with KeyLab 88 MkII’s incredibly expressive keyboard. For classic '60s organ tone, Arturia's acclaimed Vox Continental V virtual instrument is also included. You also get Wurli V, Arturia’s stunningly accurate physical model of the legendary Wurlitzer 200A electric piano. To control every aspect of these amazing sounds, KeyLab 88 MkII features dedicated, intelligently mapped controls for every instrument. And it even comes with Ableton Live Lite, so you can start recording right out of the box!
