Novation Launchkey 49 MK2 USB MIDI Controller w/ Launch Pads 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
colour RGB LEDs mean they'll match the colour 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. It also integrates with FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Studio One and Logic. We
call this InControl technology, because it puts you in control immediately without any manual
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 bus-
powered via USB.
Launchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton
Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 1GB
collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.
