WNAMM11: Welcome To The Laboratory

Arturia has announced the upcoming release of its third and most sophisticated keyboard in the Analog Experience Series: Analog Experience THE LABORATORY. Here's their press release with all the details...

Analog Experience THE LABORATORY is a professional-grade MIDI keyboard combined with the powerful Analog Laboratory software. The 49-key keyboard controller is made for performance and maximum expression, with velocity and aftertouch in addition to a set of knobs, faders and sensitive pads. Full connectivity on the back pannel includes breath-controller, MIDI IN and OUT as well as Pedal Expression, Sustain and Aux. This MIDI keyboard is a top-notch controller for any Hardware and Software and gives the fullest access to Analog Laboratory software. Its preassigned controls make it the perfect solution for plug and play sound creation.

The Laboratory software is Arturia's most advanced version in the Analog series. It offers a new depth of access to the synth patches and the possibility to customize the impressive library of internationally designed presets. A new scene mode allows several sounds to be played at the same time with the addition of arpeggiation melodies, drums and FX loops. When combined, the 49-key keyboard controller and the Analog Laboratory software offers a unique playing experience. As a matter of fact, the workflow is the same as on a traditional Hardware synthesizer, but at better value and with better integration in the studio environment.
