Make the Most Out of Your Studio
When you’re getting creative, you don’t want technology interfering with your flow. Almost everyone starts off by using the computer keyboard and mouse to change settings and edit sounds, but now you’re ready to take the next step. Once you discover how quick and intuitive Black KeyLab Essential 49 makes controlling your sound and recording process, you’ll wonder how you ever worked without it. The powerful map settings effectively make this eight controllers in one, so whatever collection of rack synths, virtual instruments, sound modules or recording software you’ve decked your studio out in, Black KeyLab Essential 49 will make you the master of it all. You’ll be totally blown away by how much is possible when this affordable controller is teamed up with the Arturia MIDI Control Center.
The Perfect Controller for any Musician
Whether you’re a Mac pro, a Windows expert or need to stay in control on the move with your phone or tablet, Black KeyLab Essential 49 is your perfect partner in crime. Using just one USB socket to transmit MIDI and receive power, you won’t be swamped with wires, and Black KeyLab Essential 49 is also class compliant, meaning that—put simply—it just works. There’s even a MIDI Out port to connect it directly to external hardware or modules. Black KeyLab Essential 49 also lets you get hands-on with your DAW. Featuring a dedicated DAW Command Center, all of the most frequently used functions and transport control features are laid out before you. You can use the rotaries and faders to adjust levels and mix your track in your DAW, or tweak the parameters of a virtual instrument. The possibilities are almost endless.
Incredible Software Included
Inside the box, you’ll also find a downloadable copy of Arturia’s award-winning Analog Lab 3, a collection of over 6,500 incredible presets from the award-winning V Collection software package.
