The original LaunchKey MIDI controllers from Novation, were perhaps the best value for money when shopping for a versatile controller keyboard. The mk2, sees Novation re-launch their product line with better quality components, even deeper integration with Ableton Live and the all new RGB LED display. Must have for software based musicians.

Novation LaunchKey 49 mk2 FEATURES:

    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. You can choose between 25, 49 and 61-note versions, depending on whether you want portability or practicality.

    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 we designed Launchkey for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs take control of all other major music software too using InControl.

    Start Immediately

    Launchkey is fully USB bus-powered and class compliant, so it works straight away without power supplies or drivers on Mac or PC.
