OVERVIEW

2nd generation of the popular Launchkey MIDI controller series.

Novation Launchkey 61 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.

Launchkey 61 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 61-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 61 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 61 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.

      Comments about Novation Launchkey 61 MIDI Controller:

      I bought the Launchkey Mk2 because I wanted a controller that would really elevate my workflow. InControl really does, as it gives me hands-on control without having to spend time mapping anything (which I'm usually too impatient to do anyways. Basically, it does what it's meant to do.

      However, a few reasons it's not a full five stars. The velocity on the keys is a little weak, but not overwhelmingly terrible. Seconds, the pads have a relatively slow retrigger time, in that if you're trying to finger drum a faster hihat pattern, you run the high possibility of skipping hits (besides that though, they're great, very sensitive and the LEDs are awesome).

        Comments about Novation Launchkey 61 MIDI Controller:

        Coming back to music after a 15 year layoff. Came with Ableton Live Lite which has been a bit of a challenge to learn but getting the hang of it. Will get the standard updated program in a month or two. Am happy with the purchase and the price is very good for what you get. I like it.
