New: Arturia Keylab MK2 MIDI keyboards
News might seem confusing at first, because Arturia updated their Keylab series not that long time ago. Well, the ones they updated are known as Keylab Essential series – basic MIDI keyboards that come with an impressive collection of software, ideal for those who are looking for their first MIDI keyboard option. New Keylab MK2 series are a few steps higher and oriented to studio professionals, stage performers and people who wish to control analog gear – there are no more keyboards in the market which boast six CV/Gate connections. Keylab MK2 also feature aftertouch, nine faders, 16 super sensitive RGB pads and five pedal inputs. Integration with other DAWs has been refined to perfection: with each keyboard you receive magnetic overlays, dedicated to 10 most popular DAWS, and there are explanations on them about how to use transport controls, so controlling software is easier. By the way, bodies of keyboards are made out of aluminum with real wooden sides – this looks and feels really nice. We are not going to emphasize the fact about the best included software you receive with Keylab MKII – one part of the software, Analog Lab 3, has more than 6500 sounds. Looks like this is a solid purchase for life!
