the all in one device
Braeder 02.03.2020
I have been using the Arturia Keylab Essential 49 for a month and I'm really happy with it. The keyboard is very solid with very good materials.

The sound is really good, I have used it with Garageband and Ableton live.

The only drawback that I have detected is in Analog Lab. it's true that you have thousands of sounds and in theory, you are also able to modify the synth preset but you only have access to a specific subset of presets mapped into the nobs and sliders. If you want to map other presets or create more sounds with synthesizers you need a license of the specific synth (around 150$ per synth or 500$ for a synth collection)


Espectacular por su precio

Un producto espectacular para el valor que tiene. Si bien no soy un gran explorador del formato MIDI o de los teclados/synths, puedo afirmar que la calidad del producto es excelente y que sus funciones básicas y sensibilidad funcionan perfectamente.
Después de unos segundos sin actividad, comienza a hacer unas luces que decoran magistralmente tu home studio.


Super Midi Keyboard

Arturia nailed it with their KeyLab Essential 49, it's a well packed budget monster with 8 sensitive pads, 8 faders and endless rotary knobs which provide you ton of options to control your daw, automate parameters and evolve your midi sequences.

The center knob is a must for menu diving, searching parameters, preset scrolling through their Analog Lab which is included and the LCD screen makes the experience way more comfortable than the usual midi keyboards.

Pitch and Modulation wheels are sturdy and the transpose buttons are very responsive.

The key bed doesn't feel realistic but at this price it's a bargain.

I bought it for beginner projects. I use it mostly at home and I can use it on tables or on my lap. The keys, buttons and levers have a great feeling and of very good quality.
It works great with Ableton Lite but I also use it with Melodics and I can use both Keyboard or pads option.
So far, very happy with this beauty.
