Analog Experience THE LABORATORY 61 is now available      31/10/11

Arturia has announced the shipping of its fourth and most sophisticated keyboard in the Analog Experience series: Analog Experience THE LABORATORY 61 keys. Analog Experience THE LABORATORY 61 is a 61-note MIDI keyboard with velocity and aftertouch-sensitive keys that Arturia say is designed to easily integrate into any studio and stage environment. Packaged with the Analog Laboratory software, Arturia tell us that it also offers straightforward control over 3500 of the world's finest analog sounds, 330 drum loops and 200 scenes. They say that, 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 and that assignable pads, knobs and faders also make AE Laboratory 61 the ideal MIDI keyboard to control third party software or MIDI hardware devices.
