Overview

Ultraportable controller keyboard.

Launchkey Mini is Novation's most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller. It has 25 miniature keys and fits into most any travel bag. It gives you everything you need to start creating in Ableton Live. Make tracks anywhere with Launchkey Mini’s deep, intuitive Ableton control, arpeggiator, fixed chord mode, MIDI out, and tons of sounds in the box.

Create new melodies, rhythms and sounds with Launchkey Mini’s easy yet powerful arpeggiator. Take ideas further with a customizable fixed chord shape that follows you up the keyboard in Fixed Chord mode. Add dynamic, expressive rhythms with 16 super-sensitive pads for drumming and clip launch. 

Transport, device and mixer controls mean fewer mouse clicks. Device macros and mixer controls mean more hands-on control of your music. Sounds, instruments and effects from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand mean you have everything you need to get started. Throw all this content into the included copy of Ableton Live Lite, or use Launchkey Mini’s integrations with Logic, Reason or any HUI compatible DAW.

Firmware v.1.1 Update
The firmware v1.1 update introduces the new Strum Mode feature to Launchkey Mini [MK3]
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 on the Launchkey Mini [MK3]. For total sonic variation, Strum Mode can also be used alongside other arpeggiator modes on Launchkey devices.

As well as the addition of Strum Mode, Launchkey Mini [MK3] will receive some extra updates with v1.1. These new updates incorporate some important and functional features that have been requested by the Novation community.

Adjustable pad brightness
Pad brightness can be adjusted for better visibility and comfortable ease of use in all light settings.

Toggle pad velocity
Pad velocity can now be switched on or off depending on user preference—especially helpful for finger drummers who prefer to have a fixed velocity.

Toggle MIDI clock output
Clock output from the MIDI port can now be toggled on or off. This increases flexibility for users when connecting Launchkey Mini to other MIDI devices.

Double-tap shift function for arp and fixed chord modes
A new double-tap shift function latches the shift button to enable one-handed control of shift-modified buttons—perfect for tweaking with one hand while playing with the other, or when simultaneously playing guitar or using a connected synth.

Powerful mini controller, bundled with software. Order soon.
