Great software - OK hardware
madebyDBM, 12.09.2020
At least one of the four stars I've given for the Arturia KeyLab MKII 49 is for the excellent Analog Lab software bundled with it. Thousands of superb sounds with plenty of customisation from the KeyLab's knobs and sliders. From grand pianos to Fairlight samples, Prophets to ARPs - it's an incredible range. A huge amount of work must have gone into putting Analog Lab together and it's really been worth it.

To the not so good... The Arturia looks way better than it feels. The keyboard is at best OK - the buttons feel very cheap and click loudly on every press. The magnetic panel you attach depending on the DAW you're using is in no way suited to something claiming to be a premium product. By far the biggest problems are the controller knobs. They jump all over the place - impossible to use them to do even the most simple task like smoothly panning a track from left to right. Arturia desperately needs to address this in a firmware fix because I've been close to sending mine back. In the end, I just needed a keyboard to work on Reaper with and it's absolutely fine for that. But despite how great it looks in photos, I couldn't help feeling a bit underwhelmed when I started using it.

Hight quality USB midi keyboard.
verSion , 03.10.2019
Looked long and hard for a mid-range USB keyboard and so glad i chose the Arturia. It comes bundled with Analog Lab which is a great piece of software and makes this even better value.
The DAW integration with Ableton is amazing and the weighting and quality of the keys are spot on. Overall construction, metal top panel wood inserts on the sides, also makes it feel like a peremium product.
Highly recommended

Super Midi-Keyboard
Sunnyboy2104, 12.03.2020
Ich nutze das Arturia KeyLab MkII als Midi-Keyboard in meinem kleinen Homestudio.

Die Optik ist der absolute Hammer, es sieht wirklich extrem schick aus. Auch die Verarbeitung ist sehr solide. Einzig das Handling mit den Pads finde ich persönlich etwas "gewöhnungsbedürftig" weil man schon sehr fest draufdrücken muss um die Sounds zu spielen.

Alles in allem aber ein richtig tolles Midi-Keyboard - für meine Bedürfnisse mehr als ausreichend. Die auf Grund einer Aktion mitgelieferte V-Collection lässt auch fast keine Wünsche offen und hat auch jede Menge Sounds an Bord. Auch die Installation ist dank Arturia kein Problem und man wird super durch die ganzen Punkte geleitet (auch wenn man einiges laden u. installieren muss)

Zum Schluss komme ich allerdings zum größten Manko. Ich kann absolut nicht verstehen, dass man mehrere DAWs (in meinen Fall Cubase) auswählen kann, diese dann aber mit dieser Einstellung nicht wirklich funktionieren. Ich kann jetzt nur vom Cubase Modus reden, der absolut nicht tauglich ist. Auch über die Arturia Seite gibt es die Anleitung um mit dem Midi-Keyboard im Cubase Modus zu steuern - es funktioniert nur leider nicht richtig. Man muss im Internet recherchieren und rausfinden, das man bei Cubase auch im Mackie Hui Modus fahren sollte um einigermaßen problemlos damit arbeiten zu können! Das sollte - nein muss - Arturia schnellstmöglich noch ändern. Denn ohne dieses Manko hätte ich in der Bedienung auch 5 Sterne vergeben!

dissofiddle, 01.02.2021
Après avoir laché maschine, dont le workflow pourtant génial m'a finalement frustré et
trop éloigné de la précision redoutable de mon adoré reaper,
j'ai décidé de revenir (à nouveau) à une configuration plus classique, impliquant tout de même des synthés/grooveboxes externes.
Je cherchais alors un clavier midi répondant à ces critères :
- Un contrôle correct de reaper (étant passé par maschine...)
- Un contrôle de matériels externes qui peut fonctionner sans pc
- Si possibles des "perform effects" (gammes intelligentes, modes accord, note repeat, arpégiateur).

J'ai hésité entre plusieurs modèles :
m-audio oxygen pro (peur du manque de support, de la qualité, des mise-à-jours), akai MPK 249 (trop de programmation pour contrôler reaper, un peu vieux), nektar panorma T4 (retours très mitigé sur nektarine, peur d'être frustré par ce soft), novation launchkey (peur de l'intégration, des features inutiles dans reaper) ... Pas facile de trouver le clavier parfait (il n'y en juste pas).


J'ai finalement opté pour le Keylab, et je pense que j'ai bien fait !
Il a la majorité de ce que je recherchais, et surtout il le fait bien :
- la qualité de fabrication est top (malgré des avis mitigés dans les commentaires), avec aftertourch, de bons pads. le feeling est plus celui d'un excellent synthé que d'un piano (ce qui est logique pour ce produit je trouve)
- Simple et élégante, l'intégration à reaper (ou autre DAW) est presque plug and play via MCU. En une pression, le keylab contrôle désormais votre daw. Le potard central pour déplacer le curseur temporel est génial.
- Une pression de touche et hop ! on quitte le mode daw pour accéder à un un des 10 presets USER; complètement paramétrables (et ceci même depuis le contrôleur), permettant un intégration poussée avec un appareil externe ou un vst tiers (voire de se reprogrammer un mode DAW avec reaper ;-) ).
Par exemple, pour mon digitakt, je contrôle à la fois le volume des pistes, des effects sends, des paramètres du delay/reverb, les mutes et autre paramètres d'effet.
- Une pression d'une autre touche et hop ! on contrôle l'analog lab. Son intégration est à la fois tellement simple et poussée, vous donnant la sensation d'avoir affaire ici à un vrai synthétiseur. C'est génial quand vous avez une groove box à utiliser en parallèle.
- Cerise sur le gateau : le mode chord. Génial pour créer des arrangements.

Côté défauts :
-Il manque cruellement d'un arpégiateur/note repeat intégré (un retrokit rk002/votre arpégiateur logiciel fait cependant l'affaire pour ça).
- la sélection des pistes en mode DAW, pourrait être plus pratique, dans reaper en tous cas (un peu galère pour de gros projets)

Je referai cependant l'achat de ce produit bien construit qui est vraiment une solution à la fois simple et élégante et très configurable qui permet beaucoup et simplement. Un must
