Arturia's KeyLab MKII has been around in 49 and 61 key versions for almost exactly 12 months - we reviewed the KeyLab MKII 49 and were impressed with it. The DAW, Keylab and MIDI modes combined with the split and the CV outputs all add up to an extremely usable package. And let's not forget the AnalogLab software bundle that comes with over 6,000 sounds - lots to be getting on with. We we were also quite interested in the laptop mounting plate - not specifically mentioned as wo whether that comes with or is an optional accessory.
See our Review:
The new KeyLab MKII 88 is going to be shipping at the end of June and features the same controls, plus an 88 key Fatar TP/100LR piano weighted keybed with aftertouch.
