Arturia announces Astrolab - Hybrid Stage Keyboard


Arturia has unveiled AstroLab, a new 61-key stage keyboard. AstroLab combines a diverse sound engine, hands-on performance controls, and a streamlined ecosystem designed to bridge the gap between stage and studio.

AstroLab offers access to a vast sound library with 34 iconic instruments from Arturia and over 1300 presets powered by 10 synthesis engines. Intuitive controls, performance-centric features, and a streamlined software ecosystem are intended to empower musicians to take their custom sounds and settings directly to the stage.

AstroLab's ecosystem extends to a mobile app and integration with Arturia's Analog Lab Pro. This offers flexible sound management, setlist creation, and the ability to expand the AstroLab's library through the Sound Store. Users can synchronize custom presets between the keyboard, app, and their preferred DAW.

The included sound library spans classic and modern territory. Highlights include the realistic hammer-action feel of Piano V, the warmth of Stage-73, and the expansive synthesis possibilities of Pigments – a collection previously unavailable in a dedicated stage keyboard.

Key Features:

  • 61-note semi-weighted keyboard with piano-size keys and aftertouch.
  • 10 sound engines (Virtual Analog, Samples, Wavetable, FM, Granular, Physical modelling, Vector Synthesis, Harmonic, Phase distortion, Vocoder).
  • Over 1300 in-built sounds and more than 10.000 sounds via Arturia software.
  • Navigation wheel & screen for easy browsing.
  • 10 Preset Buttons for quick sound access.
  • 4 macro controls for quick editing (Brightness, Timbre, Time, Movement).
  • 12 insert FX.
  • 4 dedicated knobs to control FX including dedicated Delay/Reverb.
  • Multis/Keyboard Split.
  • MIDI IN i/o, balanced stereo input, sustain, expression, aux 1 & 2 pedals.
  • USB-C connection and USB-A host.
  • Bluetooth audio input and WiFi for wireless control.
  • Arpeggiator, MIDI Looper, Chord & Scale modes.

Astrolab is available now for €1599 from Arturia and Thomann.
