Overview

Seamless integration with Ableton Live and other DAWs, for all players.

Launchkey is Novation's intuitive and fully integrated MIDI keyboard controller for making tracks in Ableton Live and with your external equipment. The Launchkey 25 MK3 experience is designed for players of all types and abilities. With Launchkey, regardless of experience, you can create and play your music like never before. With its various musical creation features, all of which can be used standalone, Launchkey removes barriers to creativity, and expands your musical vocabulary.

Eight Scale modes guide you into new musical territory, by transposing keys played to notes in the scale selected. Simply choose your root note and your preferred scale, then play. Three Chord modes transform the keys and pads into an interactive surface of musical exploration, where every note played is tonally and harmonically linked. The arpeggiator lets you explore new melodies and find ideas quickly, while the mutate function reconstructs your patterns into exciting new forms.

Custom Modes simplify the relationship between controller and software, with more power than ever in your hands. Programmable using the Novation Components browser-based tool, Custom Modes let you design the behavior of your Launchkey, with control over control assignments, MIDI routing, pad color and much more.

Launchkey 25 MK3 is equipped with a full-size five-pin MIDI DIN output, enabling simple connection to the universe of MIDI devices—new and old. Coupled with its immense standalone potential, Launchkey is now the centerpiece to your live or studio rig—computer or not.

The Launchkey platform has always been about flexibility, and the MK3 revision carries this mantra at its core. Larger, improved velocity-sensitive pads provide greater control over dynamics, and eight fixed rotary knobs bring your software to life at your fingertips. The integration with Ableton Live is truly seamless, with a dedicated button for activating the Capture MIDI function, plus track arm, quantize, click and loop controls, for flying around your Session faster than ever.

Not an Ableton Live user? No problem. Launchkey also has full integration with Logic and Reason, plus out-of-the-box functionality with other DAWs, including Studio One, Cubase and Pro Tools, via HUI.

Whether starting out or locked in a groove, Launchkey is the controller keyboard to take you further on your musical journey. With a collection of software instruments, including Ableton Live 10 Lite, Spitfire Audio LABS Expressive Strings, XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette, AAS Session Bundle, Launchkey 25 MK3 equips you with an amazing bundle of sounds.

Firmware v.1.1 Update
The firmware v1.1 update introduces the new Strum Mode feature, which was created as an inspirational new feature to help ignite that creative spark and add an extra dimension to melody making. Easy to use, users can hold down notes and trigger strum mode by using the mod strip by using the mod wheel on the Launchkey [MK3]. For total sonic variation, Strum Mode can also be used alongside other arpeggiator modes on Launchkey devices.

A hub of creativity at your fingertips. Order your Launchkey 25 MK3 keyboard controller today.
