The MiniLab is full-featured MIDI Controller designed to work with any software or DAW software you own.
In addition to Analog Lab and its 6000 keyboards sounds, MiniLab Black Edition is bundled with one of Arturia's most praised virtual synthesizers, the Oberheim SEM V, a faithful reproduction of the original Oberheim SEM from 1974. The second part of this bundle, the exceptional UVI Grand Piano Model D, offers you the sound of a brilliantly-sampled Steinway. Last but not least, Ableton Live Lite allows you to be immediately operational.
The MiniLab offers you more control options than any other compact USB/MIDI controller on the market.
Minilab features 25 velocity sensitive mini-keys alongside brand new pitch and modulation touch controls, giving you maximum expression and playability in a highly portable package. 16 encoders make 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, an assignable pedal input jack and you have the premiere mobile keyboard solution.
Thanks For The Memories
Having direct access to 8 user presets further expands all of this control. MiniLab offers 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 hardware for instant recall.
Take It On The Run
The MiniLab keyboard is designed for maximum portability, flexibility and performance. It is small enough to fit in a laptop bag but big on features. The 16 encoders and the ergonomic spacing of the knobs keep this small controller from feeling cramped. The touch sensitive faders for Pitchbend and Modulation offer low profile controllers with 'last position hold' or 'return to zero' modes of operation.
The major bonus of the MiniLab is the fact it comes with a great software bundle comprising Arturia's Analog Lab, Oberheim SEM V, UVI Grand Piano Model D and ABleton Live Lite.
The front panel controls will automatically map to the most used parameters of each sound in Analog Lab. Functions like Cutoff, Resonance, Envelope controls, LFO rates, etc. all are mapped automatically to the knobs on the front panel.
You can browse and load your sounds from the hardware that gives you a true hardware synth feel.
The pads on the MiniLab give you two different performance features.
Pads 1-8 allow you to set up chords that you can recall. This is perfect for triggering arpeggiated sounds that you want have play a specific set of notes or set the pad to Toggle mode and allows you to hold ambient drones. Pads 9-16 allow you access to snapshots. Snapshots are a way to choose a collection of your favourite SOUNDS or MULTIS for instant recall.
Analog Lab Software
Analog Lab is an extremely powerful software synthesizer solution with over 5000 classic synthesizer sounds from Arturia's premier vintage analogue 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.
More Than Just A Sound Library
Analog Lab offers the ability to do fast and simple editing and customising 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. Multi mode allows you to create amazing layers and splits as well as warping and twisting your sounds with 15 high quality effects.
Oberheim SEM V
Oberheim SEM V is a stunningly accurate virtual synthesizer that delivers the sound of the legendary Oberheim SEM from 1974. SEM V reproduces the unique SEM architecture with its oscillator sync, characteristic filter shape and specific envelope response. But it goes further than just sounding great thanks to the added polyphony and multitimbral capability, the exclusive 8-Voice Programmer module and the modulation Matrix.
Ableton Live 9 Lite
Ableton Live 9 Lite is a starter version of one of the most popular digital audio workstation ever made. Discover the DAW in which thousands of song are composed and recorded each day. Live 9 Lite offers an intuitive, convenient and deep working environment to quickly turn your ideas into rich tracks. It also comes with a large selection of audio and midi effects plus many drum resources and perfectly matches with the MiniLab workflow.
UVI Grand Piano Model D
The Grand Piano Model D from UVI is a sample-based instrument that delivers the sound of the Steinway Model D Concert Grand, considered by many to be the finest embodiment of the king of all keyboard instruments. This unmistakable sound is the legacy of more than 150 years of history, captured with the best recording equipment in the best conditions. The UVI Acoustic Grand Piano integrates perfectly with the sounds of Analog Lab, Prophet-V and Solina V, adding that acoustic flavour to your vast electronic sound collection.

The actual keyboard and pitch/mod/octave/pads work fine, just the rotary controls won't talk to Logic X. Still trying to get it going but Arturia support isn't brilliant, as this seems a very common problem if you go on the net. And it crashes Logic regularly too when you change patches. But worth the money for Analog Lab which is sensational--every old analogue keyboard sound you'll ever need including Wurlitzer and Vox organ, all fantastic and endless presets. The sampled piano is superb too but is a nightmare to install as it's not made by Arturia and you have to use the dreaded iLok software. The standalone Oberheim is brilliant too so you get £200 worth of software plus a mini keyboard for £80.|
