KeyLab MK II 49 or 61?
Kmkn 12.03.2020
I'm using this MIDI keyboard mainly controlling hardware synthesisers and drum machines. Key touch is quite soft but still good feeling and built quality is also good. Only thing is would be good if the rotary encoders had a bit more turn resistance but this is also not a big matter and I assume it wouldn't bother most of users.
Software side is simply great and you can find plenty of reviews on this, so please refer those resources.
Although, before purchasing the item, it was quite hard to choose either 49 or 61 keys version for me. There's not much reviews on this product specifically about this matter. Of course, it depend on your needs but if you think 61keys takes too much space, there's only 8,2cm width difference between 49 and 61key versions, so in fact you get 1 octave more in almost same size keyboard if you pay about 100 EUR extra.
For that reason, pitch bend and mod. wheel are placed on different places on each models but probably it wouldn't really affect your work flaw or playing performance.
Probably this fact would help people who can't choose between the 2 models. If you find paying 100 EUR more for 1octave is too much then go for 49keys. I personally decided to get a 61keys version, because I would prefer to have more keys in limited space.

Fantastic Midi Controller
deep future 09.09.2020
I use the Arturia Keylab MKII 61 for deep house productions. I waited from march will july 2020 for this bad boy to be back in stock and it was worth the wait.

In deciding between the Native Ins komplete control I went for the Arturia purely as it was more synth based and more control with faders and nobs. The analogue Lab VST that comes with it is amazing with over 6500 presets. It Can be a bit daunting due to the volume of sounds at first. It does NOT come with a power cord but runs direct through USB. Build quality is amazing and you will be surprised how heavy the unit is.

From a guy that has bought Roland and Korg workstations and synths all my life I don't think I'll ever go back now. You have everything and more under unit.

Pro's :
Analogue Lab VTS.
Build Quality
Lost of Control with Knobs & Faders

Cons
Difficult to find the right sound scrolling.
CPU heavy

Great product, bit tricky to install
madscs 23.03.2022
Loving this keyboard and all of its great features. Build quality is awesome and it looks beautiful.

However it did prove a bit awkward to install and get it to work with my DAW (Logic Pro). A more detailed installation description could be helpful.
There's still a couple of buttons that don't seem to be setup perfectly but I just have to tinker a bit more with it to make it work.

Arturia Keylab MkII 61
acerimmer 19.03.2022
This wasn't my first controller keyboard but as my old Edirol PCR aged and having lack of support I did some research and at the time, this looked like a great controller.
The build quality is very nice and so far have had no issues with it although there have been a few firmware upgrades since I purchased it.
All controls are smooth and function as they are supposed to.
The Keylab also comes with magnetic templates for most major DAWS...I use Reaper so that was a nice add on.
It also comes with software synths such as Analog Lab etc (which were all free at the time I purchased this).
The Keylab was an easy integration into my studio with no problems connecting with the USB to the computer. It works seamlessly with my DAW.
All in all, an excellent product although there are a lot more controllers out there at a cheaper price.
I would definitely buy again if I had to.
