Great software - OK hardware
madebyDBM, 12.09.2020
At least one of the four stars I've given for the Arturia KeyLab MKII 49 is for the excellent Analog Lab software bundled with it. Thousands of superb sounds with plenty of customisation from the KeyLab's knobs and sliders. From grand pianos to Fairlight samples, Prophets to ARPs - it's an incredible range. A huge amount of work must have gone into putting Analog Lab together and it's really been worth it.

To the not so good... The Arturia looks way better than it feels. The keyboard is at best OK - the buttons feel very cheap and click loudly on every press. The magnetic panel you attach depending on the DAW you're using is in no way suited to something claiming to be a premium product. By far the biggest problems are the controller knobs. They jump all over the place - impossible to use them to do even the most simple task like smoothly panning a track from left to right. Arturia desperately needs to address this in a firmware fix because I've been close to sending mine back. In the end, I just needed a keyboard to work on Reaper with and it's absolutely fine for that. But despite how great it looks in photos, I couldn't help feeling a bit underwhelmed when I started using it.

Hight quality USB midi keyboard.
verSion , 03.10.2019
Looked long and hard for a mid-range USB keyboard and so glad i chose the Arturia. It comes bundled with Analog Lab which is a great piece of software and makes this even better value.
The DAW integration with Ableton is amazing and the weighting and quality of the keys are spot on. Overall construction, metal top panel wood inserts on the sides, also makes it feel like a peremium product.
Highly recommended

Super Midi-Keyboard
Sunnyboy2104, 12.03.2020
Ich nutze das Arturia KeyLab MkII als Midi-Keyboard in meinem kleinen Homestudio.

Die Optik ist der absolute Hammer, es sieht wirklich extrem schick aus. Auch die Verarbeitung ist sehr solide. Einzig das Handling mit den Pads finde ich persönlich etwas "gewöhnungsbedürftig" weil man schon sehr fest draufdrücken muss um die Sounds zu spielen.

Alles in allem aber ein richtig tolles Midi-Keyboard - für meine Bedürfnisse mehr als ausreichend. Die auf Grund einer Aktion mitgelieferte V-Collection lässt auch fast keine Wünsche offen und hat auch jede Menge Sounds an Bord. Auch die Installation ist dank Arturia kein Problem und man wird super durch die ganzen Punkte geleitet (auch wenn man einiges laden u. installieren muss)

Zum Schluss komme ich allerdings zum größten Manko. Ich kann absolut nicht verstehen, dass man mehrere DAWs (in meinen Fall Cubase) auswählen kann, diese dann aber mit dieser Einstellung nicht wirklich funktionieren. Ich kann jetzt nur vom Cubase Modus reden, der absolut nicht tauglich ist. Auch über die Arturia Seite gibt es die Anleitung um mit dem Midi-Keyboard im Cubase Modus zu steuern - es funktioniert nur leider nicht richtig. Man muss im Internet recherchieren und rausfinden, das man bei Cubase auch im Mackie Hui Modus fahren sollte um einigermaßen problemlos damit arbeiten zu können! Das sollte - nein muss - Arturia schnellstmöglich noch ändern. Denn ohne dieses Manko hätte ich in der Bedienung auch 5 Sterne vergeben!

Un peu cher pour ce que c'est
dissofiddle, 01.02.2021
Sur le papier, le keylab est très attirant :
- il est beau, lourd et solide
- s'intégre comme maschine à une solution logicielle
- s'intégre bien comme surface de contrôle
- s'adapte à tout setup par sa configuration midi personnalisable.

Mais ça n'est que ... partiellement vrai.

Tout d'abord, en terme de qualité de fabrication, c'est bien, mais il ne faut pas s'attendre à une qualité incroyable : les pads sont moins bons que sur une maschine mikro, les touches de claviers sont celles d'un bon synthé, mais rien de fou. Pour moitié prix, on trouve une qualité similaire chez des concurrents.

Quand à analog lab, il s'intégre effectivement bien, et notamment en ce qui concerne les presets. En revanche, il n'est pas exempt de bugs. Dans reaper, il m'arrive que les presets du keylab changent sans raison apparente... après un redémarrage, ça marche bien à nouveau, sans savoir pourquoi. D'autre part, si le contrôleur possède des pads, les rares banques de percussions du analog lab ne sont bizarrement pas configurée pour répondre correctements à ceux-ci (il faut changer les notes midis affecté aux pads)... très bizarre.

Ensuite, en ce qui concerne l'intégration à votre DAW, c'est vraiment pas incroyable non plus : avec ableton, ça fonctionne bien, c'est très réactif, mais pour reaper ou un autre daw, il n'y presque aucune différence entre le mode dédié et le mode MCU standard du keylab. Du coup, la publicité faite sur les différents daw que le keylab prend en charge est un attrape nigaud, voire une arnaque. N'importe quel clavier midi prenant en charge le MCU fera aussi bien.

Pour finir, le mode personnalisable depuis le keylab (et ce sans utilisation du logiciel d'édition) permettant de configurer votre clavier pour envoyer n'importe quel message midi est en vérité assez pénible à utiliser. Alors bien sûr, pour quelqu'un qui fait de la scène et a besoin d'une telle fonctionnalité, c'est sûrement pratique, mais pour quelqu'un qui possède un ordinateur... c'est vraiment inutile et plus fatiguant à utiliser qu'autre chose. En plus, pour utiliser la sortie midi, il faut une alimentation qui ... n'est pas fournie !

Le bilan, C'est que vous ne devriez acheter ce clavier que si vous êtes intéressé par faire de la scène et/ou du modulaire et que vous êtes intéressé par l'analog lab. Sinon, vous allez payer cher un clavier que vous n'allez pas trouver incroyable. A refaire, j'achèterais plutôt un nektar, un akai 249 ou même un m-audio.
