Arturia Minilab - 25 mini key controller keyboard


Made for the musician on the go or the performer with limited space, MiniLab offers a comprehensive set of features in a portable package that‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs sturdy and looks great.

When combined with the included Analog Lab software, MiniLab becomes a real hybrid synthesizer with 5000 sounds from all Arturia software titles.

MiniLab under the hood

MiniLab is a full-featured MIDI controller designed to work with any music software or DAW you own.

MiniLab goes a step beyond other mini-key controllers, though. It‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs a great MIDI controller and it also includes our Analog Lab software, which provides a dream studio of classic keyboards. The combination of MiniLab and Analog Lab creates an amazing hybrid synthesizer with excellent functionality and great sound.

Thanks for the memories!

Having direct access to 8 user presets further expands your control options. MiniLab includes our free MIDI Control Center software that lets you map parameters in a simple and easy way directly from your computer. Those presets are then stored in the MiniLab for instant recall.

Take it on the run

The MiniLab keyboard is designed for maximum portability, flexibility and performance. It‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs small enough to fit in a laptop bag, but big on features. The ergonomic spacing of the 16 encoders and 8 pads keeps this small controller from feeling cramped. The touch strip controls for Pitch bend and Modulation offer low profile controllers with ‰ۡóÁÌÎ?ÌÎÌÁlast position hold‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈ or ‰ۡóÁÌÎ?ÌÎÌÁreturn to zero‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈ modes of operation.

Control Freak

MiniLab offers you more control options than any other compact USB/MIDI controller on the market. It features 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keys alongside our brand new pitch and modulation touch strip controls, giving you maximum expression and playability in a highly portable package. We included 16 assignable encoders so you‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈll have everything you need to program and perform wherever you may be. Two banks of 8 backlit performance pads, for 16 total, can be easily assigned as drum pads, MIDI CC buttons or Program change switches. The recessed, full-sized USB jack and assignable footswitch input will keep your connections safe and out of the way. It all adds up: MiniLab is the premier mobile keyboard solution.
