Novation Launchkey (MK2) is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects, and mixer. Launch clips, control FX, play beats, and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full color RGB LEDs mean they'll match the color of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats. Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. Use eight rock solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and nine dedicated faders for hands-on control of your mixer.

The 49-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances. All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. Of course, if you do not use Ableton, it will map to other major music software using InControl.

Launchkey 49 is tough enough to take and use anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC. Launchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, our Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 4GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.

Great Purchase For the Up-and-Coming Composer
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Solid buy, well crafted. Being the son of musicians, our 12-year-old son wanted to get into composing. His must-haves were pitch and modulation wheels. He grew up using them on Dad's M-Audio keyboard, and loves the sound effects he can create. Needless to say, this isn't the "average" toy for a kid. It's not really a toy at all, but a great beginning piece of gear to carry him many years. A bonus: the trackpads. He's just beginning to see all they can do. Ableton Live Lite was a great bonus, too. We're so impressed with this lil keyboard, we're going to upgrade to the full-size one for ourselves!
