Are there any news regarding KeyLab88? simply changing the extension from .keylab4961 to .keylab88 doesnt work. Isnt the bigger keyboard the only difference between the units?

Thanks for help!

Good question.  I am supposed to receive a Keylab 88 tomorrow and would like to know the answer to this.  It is not critical, but it would be nice to know.

Could somebody tell me where to find this mythical Keylab xx-Live.keylabxx file? Trying to map my keylab 49 to Ableton 9.6 but, besides blue hand, it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks so much Claudio!
You're a Keylab 88 genious :)

This is really helpful! I've messaged Ben who works for Arturia, to ask if he'd post them on the official website (with your permission) to make it easier for other customers to find your post!

Hopefully Arturia will make configuration templates for Logic Pro X/ Mainstage 3 / Studio One 3 too, as well as other DAW's eventually! :)

Only got my Keylab 88 yesterday - but am really impressed with the keybed -
Out of interest, do you use yours live for gigging, Or is Ableton live just the DAW you use for anything Keylab 88 ? Would be interested to hear about your setup, when you get a chance :)


any estimate of when a script for the Keylab88 will be available?
I'm reverse engineering the keylab61 patch and the corresponding ableton script to make it work with my 88 but it's time consuming...

=== UPDATE (2015/01/19):
I've been fighting my lazyness this weekend and created a configuration/template for the Keylab88 based on the official resources provided for the Keylab61.
Attached to this post is an archive containing two things:
- "AbletonLiveTemplate.keylab88" is the MIDI configuration to be loaded in one available memory slot on the Keylab88 using the MIDIControlCenter
- the "Arturia Keylab 88" folder must be copied to Live's User Remote Scripts folder and contains the mappings between midi CC messages and Ableton Live controls.
Please follow the instructions provided by Arturia for the Keylab61's template (downloadable here: http://www.arturia.com/keylab61/resources) and you should be good.

The mapping is the same as the official one provided for the Keylab61 (see first post in this thread).

Hope it's going to be useful to other users!
