This latest generation of Launchkey is Novation's most focused MIDI keyboard controller for Ableton Live. It’s the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music because it was designed specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately give you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer. Of course, if you don’t use Ableton, it will map to other major music software too using InControl.
Designed for Ableton Live:
All controls work immediately and can be freely reassigned.
See your session in full color:
RGB pads match the color of your clips.
Create expressive beats:
All 16 pads are velocity-sensitive for creating dynamic drum beats.
Shape your sound:
Tweak your instruments and effects to perfection using eight rock solid knobs
Take it anywhere:
Compact and tough enough to chuck in your bag without needing a power cable
Control all major music software:
Get automatic hands-on control of other DAWs
Plug in and play:
USB bus-powered and totally class compliant, so it works straight away without any drivers
Make music immediately:
Includes Ableton Live Lite, one of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and over 4GB of Loopmasters samples.
Enjoy two years of warranty:
Rely on our two-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault
