The KeyLab series by Arturia combines the pro build quality of a classic synthesizer with the vast amount of control needed in today’s digital environment. KeyLab 61 is perfectly suited for the center of any studio, from project to professional.
KeyLab 61 combines a professional-grade MIDI keyboard with our powerful Analog Lab software environment. With 61 keys, 2 banks of 10 encoders, 2 banks of 9 faders, 10 assignable switches and 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, KeyLab 61 is perfect for studio and live use. Perfectly matched to the included Analog Lab software, with an integrated user interface and 6000 sounds from our V-Collection line of products, KeyLab 61 is more than a controller: it is an instrument unto itself.
As a professional hybrid synthesizer, KeyLab 61 offers the immediacy of a hardware synthesizer combined with the flexibility of a software-based solution. The keyboard is entirely preassigned to work with the included Analog Lab software, giving you immediate and in-depth control over your sound. Change the filter cutoff, the resonance, adjust the 2 ADSR envelopes, and much more. But the KeyLab 61 also acts as a Universal MIDI controller, compatible with any third-party software and hardware. MIDI Assignments can be customized for virtually any form of MIDI technology using the LED screen or the included MIDI Control Center software.
The included Analog Lab software offers 6000 legendary synthesizer sounds from Arturia’s vintage keyboard recreations: Mini V, Prophet V, CS-80 V, Jupiter-8 V, ARP 2600 V, Prophet VS, Modular V, Oberheim SEM V, Vox Continental V, Matrix-12, Solina V and Wurlitzer V. But Analog Lab goes further by integrating perfectly with KeyLab 61, resulting in an ergonomic interface for tweaking the presets. Owners of the full versions of the software instruments can edit the sounds in depth by accessing the entire synthesizer’s interface from within Analog Lab. Finally, Analog Lab also includes 200 Multi patches, organized by musical genres. These allow you to play 2 synth sounds simultaneously, play chords, apply effects... Everything needed for inspiration and creativity is right there.
Our 61-key keyboard controller is made for maximum expression and performance, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to high-quality knobs, faders, assignable switches and 16 of the best-feeling pads around.
This premium controller is a perfect match for the included Analog Lab software; the preassigned controls make an ideal hybrid solution for plug-and-play sound creation. Simply connect KeyLab 61 to Analog Lab and you can put your mouse away, enjoying the same workflow as with a traditional hardware synthesizer.
With KeyLab 61 you have unparalleled access to 6000 sounds modeled after the most classic synthesizers and keyboards of all time. The innovative Multi mode provides layer/split functions and a Chord mode, so you can layer these sounds and play them at the same time while adding professional-grade effects.
And as with the entire KeyLab series, the keyboard and controls can be easily used with any other music software.
KeyLab 61 is our new professional-grade 61-key USB MIDI Controller. It’s entirely preassigned to work with the Analog Lab software, so it’s ready out of the box to give you immediate and in-depth control over your sound. But KeyLab 61 is also a Universal MIDI controller, so it’s compatible with any third party-software and hardware. Remapping the controls is simple with the included MIDI Control Center software.

Analog Lab is an extremely powerful software synthesizer solution that puts 6000 classic synthesizer sounds from Arturia’s premier vintage analog recreations at your fingertips.
Analog Lab offers the ability to do fast and simple editing and customizing of your presets, but it doesn’t stop there. Owners of the original individual synthesizer software products or V Collection can open one of those sounds in Analog Lab and edit it in the original software, and then add it to their library.
Our new Multi mode allows you to create amazing layers and splits and then shape, warp and twist them with 17 high-quality effects. Analog Lab will take your sound and workflow to a new level.
Analog Lab is a virtual instrument, which means that its sounds are generated within the computer. It can be used as a stand-alone application or as a plug-in within Digital Audio Workstations such as Steinberg Cubase, Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro X, MOTU Digital Performer, and Cakewalk Sonar, to name a few.
The user-customizable MIDI mapping allows you to control the parameters you want to control with your favorite keyboard. But this is even better: use an Arturia keyboard controller and the interface will automatically change to show its knob and slider layouts, resulting in a slick 1:1 user interface.
