Launchkey is Novation’s easy-to-use MIDI keyboard controller. It’s pretty much the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music, especially in Ableton Live – because we designed it specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately spring into life, giving you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer.
Of course, if you don’t use Ableton, it’ll automatically map to other major music software too.
The Launchkey 49 mk2 is a great compact music production controller designed to make music creation a breeze, no matter what genre… The keyboard features 49 full sized and velocity sensitive keys, 16 backlit RGB trigger pads, 8 assignable rotary knobs, 8 faders, mod & pitch wheels, and more. The Launchkey 49 is also supplied with Ableton Live lite 9 and a comprehensive software and instrument bundle to get you creating music straight from the box.
