KeyLab MK II 49 or 61?
Kmkn 12.03.2020
I'm using this MIDI keyboard mainly controlling hardware synthesisers and drum machines. Key touch is quite soft but still good feeling and built quality is also good. Only thing is would be good if the rotary encoders had a bit more turn resistance but this is also not a big matter and I assume it wouldn't bother most of users.
Software side is simply great and you can find plenty of reviews on this, so please refer those resources.
Although, before purchasing the item, it was quite hard to choose either 49 or 61 keys version for me. There's not much reviews on this product specifically about this matter. Of course, it depend on your needs but if you think 61keys takes too much space, there's only 8,2cm width difference between 49 and 61key versions, so in fact you get 1 octave more in almost same size keyboard if you pay about 100 EUR extra.
For that reason, pitch bend and mod. wheel are placed on different places on each models but probably it wouldn't really affect your work flaw or playing performance.
Probably this fact would help people who can't choose between the 2 models. If you find paying 100 EUR more for 1octave is too much then go for 49keys. I personally decided to get a 61keys version, because I would prefer to have more keys in limited space.


Fantastic Midi Controller

I use the Arturia Keylab MKII 61 for deep house productions. I waited from march will july 2020 for this bad boy to be back in stock and it was worth the wait.

In deciding between the Native Ins komplete control I went for the Arturia purely as it was more synth based and more control with faders and nobs. The analogue Lab VST that comes with it is amazing with over 6500 presets. It Can be a bit daunting due to the volume of sounds at first. It does NOT come with a power cord but runs direct through USB. Build quality is amazing and you will be surprised how heavy the unit is.

From a guy that has bought Roland and Korg workstations and synths all my life I don't think I'll ever go back now. You have everything and more under unit.

Pro's :
Analogue Lab VTS.

Lost of Control with Knobs & Faders

Quality Keyboard, Limited Features for the range
sbusso 21.11.2019
Between this keyboard and the NI competitor I chose this one for the subjective better quality and thinking I would use it as a versatile midi controller. It is solid, nicely done and overall good feeling. The software part is amazing and worth itself the purchase, but I sold it few month later to get the competitor as the midi controller is not so great and offer much less than the NI, and if I had to buy again an Arturia keyboard I would certainly buy the cheaper version just for the software.


Fantastic piece of kit!
