A compact, 25-note mini USB/MIDI keyboard bundled with award-winning software featuring 5000 classic synth sounds.

Arturia's MiniLab USB Controller was designed to marry the style you love with the hands-on control and portability you need to take your studio wherever you are inspired. Made for the on-the-go musician or the performer with a limited working space, the MiniLab gives you a great depth of features in a package that is portable, stylish, and sturdy.

Control Freak
MiniLab features 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keys alongside Aruturia's special pitch and modulation touch controls, giving you maximum expression and playability in a highly portable package. 16 encoders makes sure you have everything you need to program or perform wherever life takes you. Two banks of 8 backlit performance pads, for 16 total, can easily be assigned as pads, MIDI CC buttons or Program change switches. The recessed full-sized MIDI jack will keep your connection safe and out of the way. Add to all this, a sustain pedal input jack and you have the premiere mobile keyboard solution.

Thanks for the memories
All of this control is further expanded by having direct access to 8 user presets. MiniLab offers Arturia's free MIDI Control Center software which lets you map parameters in a simple and easy way directly from your computer. Those presets are then stored in the hardware for instant recall.

Power, Style and Sound
The power of the features and visual styling are obvious, but Arturia gave the MiniLab their award-winning Analog Laboratory 2.0 software so that it sounds good too. This extremely powerful software synthesizer solution with over 5000 classic synthesizer sounds from Arturia's premier vintage analog recreations at your fingertips. All presets in Analog Lab 2.0 have been carefully selected from the Arturia Classic Synths: Mini V, Modular V, CS-80 V, ARP2600 V, Jupiter-8V, Prophet 5, Prophet VS, Oberheim SEM V and Wurlitzer V. These TAE powered sounds offer unparalleled audio quality. Analog Lab will take your sound and workflow to a new level. And it adapts to your MiniLab interface, providing you with an easy 1:1 user experience.

More than just a sound library
Analog Lab offers the ability to do fast and simple editing and customizing of your presets but it doesn't stop there; owners of the original individual synthesizer software products or the V Collection can open an Analog Lab sound and edit it in the original software, save it and then add it to their library. Arturia's new Multi mode allows you to create amazing layers and splits as well as warping and twisting your sounds with 15 high-quality effects.
