the hood, Analog Lab 2 has all the sound engines from our award-winning
V Collection of modeled instruments that reproduce the actual

The organic warmth of analog and electro-acoustic sounds is
extremely difficult to reproduce authentically with digital technology.
Samples only capture snapshots, and no amount of snapshots can possibly
convey all the nuances of playing the original instrument. Arturia’s
critically acclaimed TAE® technology and physical modelling technology
faithfully emulate the actual physics and circuitry of vintage
instruments—transistors, tubes, pickups, preamps, the works—to create
software instruments that are virtually indistinguishable from the
Give your music the sonic richness and organic texture of analog—with all the convenience of digital.

Combine your favorite sounds
Want to play a funky bass with your left hand and a customized twirly
Wurli with your right? How about bringing in a layer of strings in with
your expression pedal while playing that piano ballad? Stack your
favorite piano and strings? The Multi feature lets you simply drag and
drop to combine any two of your favorite presets into splits and layers,
complete with discrete options for key range, MIDI channels,
transposition and response to common MIDI CC messages from controllers
like touch, wheels and pedals. Then just save it as a preset for when
you need it again. We’re talking full creative expression and control.
All your favorite effects are right on board
Analog Lab 2 gives you a complete array of 13 classic effects that take
these already incredible sounds beyond the call of duty—everything from
standards like chorus, delay, reverb and overdrive to exotics like bit
crunching and vocal filters. You can even add different amounts of
discrete effects to the two instruments in your Multi patches to add a
whole new dimension to your sound. Of course, all your effects settings
are saved right with your patches for instant recall.
Sound browsing done right
Arturia spent a lot of time redesigning the user interface in Analog Lab 2 to
make it easier and faster than ever to get to just the right sounds.
Its streamlined UI lets you filter this vast library with combinations
of tags for Types, Banks, Characteristics and Instruments. Looking for
inspiration for a mellow synth melody? Just click tags like Soft, Lead
and, optionally, instruments like Mini and ARP 2600, and you’ll
instantly be auditioning just those candidates that match that
When you find sounds you like, mark them as a Favorite, and
then access them quicker in the preset browser. When it’s gig time,
simply put only the sounds you need into a Playlist and step through
them with a switch or pedal. You’ll never get lost trying to find the
right sound again—unless you want to.
Tweak and perform with the most important controls
With each preset, Analog Lab 2 surfaces the most common controls you
might want to get your hands on to tweak your sound or control live—like
the drawbars on a B-3 V or the filter controls of a Matrix-12 V.
They’re even mapped automatically to the most logical controls on
Arturia KeyLab and MiniLab keyboards, or NI controllers via NKS. With
Multi patches, you even get macro control so that a single controller
can affect parameters on two different patches at once. The MIDI Learn
feature makes it as simple as click-and-touch to assign any hardware
controller to any surfaced parameter in an Analog Lab 2 patch for total
The command center for all your V-series instruments
If you love getting your hands on all the controls, you probably already
have one or more full instruments in the V series—and Analog Lab 2 is
also included in the complete V Collection bundle. Analog Lab 2 makes
the perfect command center for your V Collection. For starters, it helps
you find sounds across your entire studio of vintage instruments. Then,
if you want to make mods beyond the most common controls we’ve
surfaced, with a click you can go directly into edit mode for the full
V-series instrument if you own a license for it.
Inspiring sounds for every type of music
No matter what kind of music you play, Analog Lab 2 has you covered.
Think about the mainstay keyboard instruments in any genre of
music that you write, play or produce—or ever want to—and you’ll find
