Powerful iPad Apps - free
Novation Launchkey Mini comes with a duo of powerful apps for iPad, which transform it into a true production and performance instrument. Use the Launchpad app with Launchkey Mini on your iPad to trigger the included professional sample library and control effects, letting you produce and perform music straight away.
Load in new sound packs and import your own samples for an even more unique performance – then share your creation with a growing fan base. Launchkey Mini connects directly to your iPad with the Apple Camera Connection Kit (not included) and it’s powered by the iPad – so there's no need for batteries or an additional power supply.
The Launchkey app for iPad is a synth filled with Novation technology, allowing you to control notes with the Launchkey Mini's keyboard while warping the sound with the knobs or via intuitive multi touch control on the iPad's screen. The Launchkey and Launchpad apps sync together perfectly for simultaneous use – set an arpeggiator on the Launchkey app and switch to the Launchpad app to build the beats behind it, for example – and both apps are fully Audiobus compatible.
Synth plugins and loops
As well as the Launchkey and Launchpad iPad apps and Ableton Live Lite, the Novation Launchkey Mini comes with software versions of Novation’s classic analogue synths, the Bass Station and the V-Station. You can use these as plug-ins within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs. There's also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers – Loopmasters. Get started straight away with over one gigabyte of loops including drums, FX and artist content.
