The MIDI standard has been around for a solid three decades, and it's been getting better and better ever since it was first introduced. When you think about that, it only makes sense to look for MIDI controllers that have been along for the entire ride, improving right along with it. Novation MIDI keyboard controllers certainly fit the bill: they've been there since the beginning, and they're definitely here to stay. If you're interested in getting the power and versatility that can only come from years of development keeping pace with MIDI itself, Novation delivers.
Keyboard controllers are the undisputed kings of the MIDI lineup. They're the centerpiece of any MIDI-based production studio or stage setup, and they come in enough different varieties that it's easy to find one no matter your needs. For instance, are you looking for something small enough to slip into a backpack and take with you on the road? If so, check out the Novation Launchkey Mini. On the other hand, when you want to gear up a professional studio setting with a wide-range controller, an option like the Novation 61 SL MkII Keyboard Controller will have you covered.
Sometimes, your performing or composition work may call for even more capability than the keyboard alone. For those situations, Novation has the combo models and kits that you need. The Launchkey 61 Keyboard Controller, for example, has a built-in pad to expand its cuing potential. Better yet, it's even available in a package with a full-sized pad controller, desk, sustain pedal and even an Intro edition copy of Ableton Live 9, allowing you to easily start a studio from scratch.
Whether you go for a straightforward option or choose one with all the bells and whistles, you can trust Novation MIDI keyboard controllers to live up to the reputation they've built over the years. With a history that goes back as far as MIDI itself, they've been designed and re-designed painstakingly to meet the needs of MIDI-using professionals from all walks of life.
