Description

Novation Launchkey 61 Mk2 USB Keyboard Controller

Launchkey is their 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 they 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.

Play with Feeling

The heart of any MIDI keyboard controller is the keyboard itself. The Launchkey synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances.

Take Control of Ableton Live

The less time you spend messing with your mouse, the more time you have for making music. If you want immediate hands-on control of your session grid, instruments and effects, you should use a MIDI keyboard controller that integrates immediately and automatically with Ableton Live. Like this one! That's what it's designed for.

Easily Make Beats and Trigger Loops

Sixteen RGB pads provide clip colour-matched feedback to enhance your workflow, letting you create and launch clips, trigger samples, control FX and loads more; all whilst playing your keys. They're also velocity-sensitive, so you can really put some feeling into your beats.

Tweak and Mix Your Tracks

Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. The eight rotary knobs are rock solid, designed to give you confidence when tweaking your instruments and effects. The 49 and 61-note versions give you hands-on control of your mixer too, with nine dedicated faders. However many controls you opt for, they will all integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything.

Control All Major Music Software

Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. Although they designed Launchkey for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs control of all other major music software too using InControl.
