Arturia has announced the upcoming release of its third and most sophisticated keyboard in the Analog Experience Series: Analog Experience The Laboratory.
The 49-key keyboard controller is made for performance and maximum expression, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to a set of knobs, faders and sensitive pads. Full connectivity on the back panel includes breath-controller, MIDI IN and OUT as well as Pedal Expression, Sustain and Aux. This MIDI keyboard is a controller for any Hardware and Software and gives the fullest access to Analog Laboratory software. Its pre-assigned controls make it the perfect solution for plug and play sound creation.
The Laboratory software is Arturia's most advanced version in the Analog series. It offers a new depth of access to the synth patches and the possibility to customize the library of internationally designed presets. A new scene mode allows several sounds to be played at the same time with the addition of arpeggiation melodies, drums and FX loops.
When combined, the 49-key keyboard controller and the Analog Laboratory software offers a unique playing experience. The workflow is the same as on a traditional Hardware synthesizer, but at better value and with better integration in the studio environment.
