The streamlined piano range keyboard

Expand your musical horizons with a semi-weighted 88-note keyboard that removes barriers and makes your creative life easier. From studio to stage, DAW to MIDI hardware, KeyLab Essential 88 mk3 keeps things simple so you can focus on your music with full piano-range expressivity.

Your essential ingredients for creativity

KeyLab Essential provides an array of useful & intuitive controls that’ll get the job done. Enjoy a comfy keybed, tactile faders/encoders/pads, and thoughtful layout that’ll make sense for your setup. Enjoy a hands-on instrument experience balanced with software flexibility.

The best DAW integration

Get creative right out the box with KeyLab Essential’s custom DAW scripts, bringing pre-mapped controls into your workflow with any major DAW. Not only that, but the KeyLab Essential controls work seamlessly with Analog Lab V, the included sound anthology plugin - letting you freely explore thousands of sounds, old and new.

Your musical workhorse

For when you want to get experimental, find a new sound, or just need a bit of extra inspiration, KeyLab Essential has a few tricks up its sleeve. Create fun ever-changing melodies with the Arpeggiator, weave rich chord voicings with Chord play, and always stay in key thanks to Scale mode.
