Arturia’s KeyLab Essential mk3 is built with seamless workflow & sustainability in mind

Arturia once again presents a new experience in the world of music creation with its KeyLab Essential mk3.

The 49 and 61-note velocity-sensitive keyboard controller is a redesign that allows for easier playback, recording and composition.

Following the footsteps of MiniLab3 (the first-ever eco-designed MIDI), KeyLab Essential mk3 is made from 40% recycled plastic and comes in 100% recyclable packaging, highlighting Arturia’s commitment towards creating a more sustainable creative future.

Boasting a larger 2.5” LCD display that provides real-time feedback of any adjustments in full colour, it also comes packed with an expanded software bundle of Analog Lab V, Native Instruments’ The Gentleman, a 2-month Loopcloud subscription and more, meaning access to a plethora of fresh sounds and millions of samples.

KeyLab Essential mk3 takes DAW integration to another level with its custom scripts for major DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio, Cubase and Bitwig Studio, complete with customisable software connectivity for your preferred workflow.

The hardware features are just as impressive, such as a durable hybrid synth-feel keybed that’s smooth and responsive plus RGB color-coded velocity and pressure-sensitive pads that make creating music all the more enjoyable and effortless.

Adding onto the already-stellar attributes are the instrument’s new performance and creative tools such as a multi-mode arpeggiator plus chord and scale modes.

All the above is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Arturia’s KeyLab Essential mk3; for more info on its features and specifications, head here.
