Arturia has debuted the progression of their micro keyboard controller, the MiniLab mkII. The MiniLab mkII combines an expressive two-octave keyboard, RGB backlit performance pads, 16 rotary knobs, and a suite of included software in a bus-powered, go-anywhere package.
MiniLab mkII Features:
» MiniLab MkII sets new standards in the small controller market, combining unparalleled control in a durable, space-saving format.
» MiniLab MkII features a 25-note slim-keys, velocity-sensitive keyboard.
» Performance pads: record a drum pattern, launch clips, cycle through presets; MiniLab MkII’s eight multi-purpose pads are ultra-responsive and RGB backlit, helping you easily identify the sound or function they are controlling.
» 16 rotary encoders give you full access to all of the important parameters of your favorite effects, synths, and DAW functions; two of the knobs are also clickable, allowing even deeper control of your music-making.
» Expressive performance controls: MiniLab MkII features responsive touchstrip controls for pitch bend and modulation, sustain pedal input to capture that authentic keyboard performance, and dedicated octave up & down buttons for full creative access.
» Record your songs: Ableton Live Lite is now included with MiniLab MkII, meaning you can record and produce your songs straight out of the box; thanks to dedicated pre-mapping within Ableton Live.
» Included Sounds: the included Analog Lab Lite software gives you access to hundreds of preset keyboard sounds taken from Arturia’s V Collection 5 — from electric pianos to analog monosynths, string machines to modular monsters, and everything in between.
» A quality piano at your fingertips: a realistic piano sound is always useful, and that’s exactly what you get with the included UVI Steinway Grand Piano Model D software.
Fun to use, easy to master, and superbly affordable, MiniLab MkII sets a new standard for small-for- mat controller keyboards. Musicians old and new will be inspired by the hundreds of classic keyboard presets in Analog Lab Lite and love recording their own songs using Ableton Live Lite. MiniLab MkII brings unmatched control to the project studio and provides performers with bus-powered, go-any- where versatility.
Arturia’s MiniLab MkII is priced at $119 / €99.
