OVERVIEW

2nd generation of the popular Launchkey MIDI controller series.

Novation Launchkey 49 is one of quickest and easiest ways to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs, and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer. Launch clips, control FX, play beats and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full-color RGB LEDs mean they'll match the color of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats. Includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and 4GB of Loopmasters samples along with one of four VSTs from XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys

Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. Use eight rock solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and nine dedicated faders for hands-on control of your mixer. The 49-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances. All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. It also integrates with FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Studio One, and Logic. Novation calls this InControl technology, because it puts you in control immediately without any manual mapping.

Launchkey 49 is tough enough to take and use anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won™t need any drivers or power cables, because it' class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC.

Launchkey 49 comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 4GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.

The perfect entry to mid level production controller!

Comments about Novation Launchkey 49 MIDI Controller:

Great little MIDI workstation for production within Ableton. Not a single function on the workstation remains unused throughout a session. Well thought out and extremely helpful. No issues with integration, drivers or connectivity. Plug and play settings are perfect. The best entry level to moderate level controller out there!

Comments about Novation Launchkey 49 MIDI Controller:

This fits perfectly with my keyboard rig. It is small enough, yet full featured. I run either my ipad with three Hammond programs or the launchpad. VERY NICE!!

      Comments about Novation Launchkey 49 MIDI Controller:

      I am not a musician. I got this for my son and I to have fun making some music. It is a fun toy for us, but it seems to work well as a musical instrument for those who actually know what they are doing.

      Bought this for my son who is just getting into music. He was able to get it connected and going without much assistance. Has a decent feel to the keys.
