Novation Launchkey 49: Next generation instrument for computer and iPad

The Novation Launchkey is a range of 25, 49 and 61 note keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls – more than any other device in its class – including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour trigger-pads. As well as enabling hands-on controller of your DAW’s mixer, instruments and effects, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument. The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad: the Launckey app and the Launchpad app - plus the powerful V-Station synth plug-in for Mac and Windows.

CREATE - Not just a controller keyboard - fully integrated instrument for Mac, PC & iPad

Launchkey includes an entire suite of software for iPad, Mac and PC including a brand new stand-alone synth app, a Launchpad app for triggering and improvising with loops, and the powerful V-Station and Bass Station soft synths for Mac and PC - not to mention Ableton Live Lite and a huge Loopmasters sample pack.

CONTROL - 'InControl' technology instantly maps to all major DAWs and music software

Launchkey is a full-scale DAW controller for all major digital audio workstations, bringing mixer, transport and direct plug-in control to Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Logic, Cubase and more. With nine faders, up to nine buttons, eight rotary knobs and transport controls, nothing comes close to Launchkey for sheer controllability.

LAUNCH - 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour launch pads - trigger loops and play drums

16 dual-colour-backlit velocity-sensing Launchpad panels can be used to play drums, trigger clips and scenes without having to go near the computer. Whatever software you use, the 16 launch pads are perfect for sketching out beats or playing in drum lines. If you use grid-based software such as Ableton Live or FL Studio, the launch pads will put loop control right at your fingertips.

PLAY - Professional synth-styled keyboard (with over 50 hardware controls)

The velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard mechanism is accompanied by pitch and mod wheels and octave track up/down buttons. It recreates the feel of classic synth keyboards with precision, so playing styles can be reflected by the software as accurately as possible.

The Launchkey software

Launchkey comes with a suite of synth and Launchpad apps for iPad as well as the powerful Novation V-Station synth plug-in for Mac and PC – and more… 

iPad apps:

Launchkey app: Launchkey comes with a powerful and uniquely intuitive graphic sound synthesiser for iPad. Position and move sound-producing elements around the screen at the touch of a finger – location, proximity and characteristics change the sound in real time. The knobs and faders on the hardware can also be used to edit and tweak sounds within the app.

Launchpad app: Second is a Launchpad styled application providing drag-and-drop clip playback from the pads, plus realtime FX manipulation such as beat repeat and stutter. The Launchpad app turns your iPad and Launchkey into a unique hardware/software loopstation.

Mac and PC software:

Novation V-Station synth

V-Station is one of Novation’s powerful analogue-modelling synth engines in software form. V-Station is a plug-in (VST/AU/RTAS) so you can open it within your music software and get hands-on control with Launchkey hardware.

Novation Bass Station synth

The classic Bass Station analogue mono-synth first appeared in 1994 and has found its way onto countless records. Launchkey comes with a plug-in version of the synth which can be opened within your DAW and played / tweaked with the hardware controls.

Ableton Live Lite

Music production software used by countless top artists to produce and perform their music. Launchkey integrates with Ableton Live: as well as controlling mixer, transport and plug-in effects, the 16 launch pads work to trigger sounds using Ableton's unique "session view".
