The system is designed to provide 1:1 control of the included Analog Lab software, Ableton Live Lite, and V-Piano virtual instrument software, as well as any MIDI controllable plug-in or DAW. It can be customized to other software using the downloadable MIDI Control Center software. What's more, the KeyLab MKII offers seamless control well beyond standard MIDI, allowing you to control your DAW software on any platform and includes 10 overlays to help you quickly change between applications. The controller is a Class-Compliant USB device that works straight out of the box with Mac and Windows.
The controller includes three buttons for switching modes, allowing you to quickly change between Analog Lab mode, DAW mode, and a User mode for creating custom maps to control MIDI hardware or software instruments and plug-ins. The Analog Lab mode allows you to control all the elements of Analog Lab without having to reach for your mouse. The software includes over 6500 TAE-powered preset sounds from Arturia's award winning V-Collection. With the KeyLab 49 MKII, you can navigate through presets as well as create and save your own. The keyboard can be split or layered to help create new sounds. All the included software is compatible with all major DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, FL Studio, Bitwig, Cubase, Ableton Live, Digital Performer, Studio One, and more.
