    Creating music in the digital world can be difficult. So many options, so many new things to learn. KeyLab Essential lets you focus on what’s important.

    8 pads, 9 rotaries, 9 faders, and an expressive keyboard, but so, so much more. Music is at the heart of this controller. Every aspect of KeyLab Essential has been carefully chosen to give you the best possible experience when creating and performing. KeyLab Essential makes navigating inside your recording software a breeze thanks to the dedicated DAW Command Center, and makes browsing your presets an exciting and inspiring experience.

    Spend less time with a keyboard and mouse, and more time creating, performing, and playing.
