PINNACLE IN EXPRESSIVITY – The KeyLab mkII keyboards are more than MIDI controllers; they are
instruments crafted with the performing musician in mind. The aftertouch will delight synthesizer
players, the nine faders allows for necessary drawbar control. Perform without limits thanks to the
five pedal inputs and even further performance features with the 16 highly sensitive RGB pads.
