The industry standard controller keyboard just got even better.

Redefining what a controller is capable of, KeyLab 88 MkII takes all of the things that professional users loved about Arturia's premier piano-feel controller and infuses the powerful, contemporary “MkII” feature set. Now you can play any instrument, control any synth, perform with any modular rig, all with the timeless feeling of a piano at your fingertips. The most expressive controller ever made, it also features multiple, assignable expression pedal inputs so you can have total control of your sound.

Looks that kill

A full size controller keyboard is a big piece of kit, and if it’s going to be the centerpiece of your setup, it should look the part. KeyLab 88 MkII is not only packed full of awesome features, it looks like a timeless, well designed piece of studio gear that’s designed to be used day in, day out, and inspire you.

Amazing software bundle

Whether you’re an experienced veteran of the industry, or just starting out as a music producer, you’ll love the awesome instruments that come with KeyLab MkII 88.

  • Analog Lab: Your one-stop instrument for synth inspiration. Analog Lab gives you instant access to over 7,000 world-class keyboard, synth, piano, and organ sounds. Easily browse by style and characteristics, create powerful combo sounds, and enjoy smart-mapping that exactly matches the controls of your KeyLab.
  • Ableton Live Lite: An introduction to one of the most popular recording and performing platforms in the world, Ableton Live Lite lets you record, effect, mix, and export your tracks, so you can start making music straight out of the box, even if you don’t already own a DAW. Live Lite can also help you hit the stage with performance controls!
  • Piano V: The be-all and end-all of piano software instruments. Piano V is like having a customizable studio full of classic upright, concert grand, and esoteric pianos. Each one tuned to perfection, ready for you to explore. Recreated through physical modeling, you can change the tonality and response in any way you like.
  • Wurli V; “You’re My Best Friend”, “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”, “, “Get Back”, all these classic tracks used the famous Wurlitzer to pulse away with that vibrant, organic tone. Now you can use this classic instrument, reborn in software, and become inspired by the same sound that captivated Queen, Marvin Gaye, and The Beatles.
  • Vox Continental V: Need that burning organ tone that was loved by everyone from The Doors to The Stranglers? The transistor circuitry and drawbars behind this classic organ have been perfectly recreated in software, letting you play the sound of some of the greatest hits of the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and beyond. Light your fire!

Awesome integration

With smart-mapping controls, clear labels, and even unique magnetic strips for each DAW, KeyLab 88 MkII takes the guesswork out of playing, recording, and mixing.

The rotary knobs, faders, and buttons are all automatically assigned to the most appropriate parameters in any Arturia software instrument, but it doesn’t stop there!

It can even draw all its power via the same USB connection!

Tour ready

Beautiful, but ergonomic. Stylish, but understandable. Robust, but elegant. KeyLab MkII 88 has been specially designed with touring professionals in mind. Its aluminum and wood chassis don’t bend or flex as you play, its build quality is unmatched. Not a wobbly knob in sight!
