the all in one device
Braeder, 02.03.2020
I have been using the Arturia Keylab Essential 49 for a month and I'm really happy with it. The keyboard is very solid with very good materials.

The sound is really good, I have used it with Garageband and Ableton live.

The only drawback that I have detected is in Analog Lab. it's true that you have thousands of sounds and in theory, you are also able to modify the synth preset but you only have access to a specific subset of presets mapped into the nobs and sliders. If you want to map other presets or create more sounds with synthesizers you need a license of the specific synth (around 150$ per synth or 500$ for a synth collection)

A great entry keyboard
Oyzuu, 01.07.2020
I was looking for a small keyboard, ideally with knobs and up to 49 keys, and the essential 49 checked everything on my list and even more — faders !

The fact that Analog Lab and Ableton Lite were provided as well was probably the tipping point, it seemed the best "bang for buck" keyboard I could purchase.

If at some point I need another keyboard, I would probably upgrade for weighted keys and a slightly better build quality on knobs but, as a beginner, I'm more than happy with this one.

Overall this is a no brainer if you want knobs / faders, more than two octaves and a great synth library. Plus, the faux-wood finish on a white keyboard looks great — it screams Arturia when you look at it.

I bought it for beginner projects. I use it mostly at home and I can use it on tables or on my lap. The keys, buttons and levers have a great feeling and of very good quality.
It works great with Ableton Lite but I also use it with Melodics and I can use both Keyboard or pads option.
So far, very happy with this beauty.
