Novation Launchkey 61 MK2 USB MIDI Controller w/ Launch Pads

LAUNCHKEY 61 MK2 is the easy-to-use MIDI keyboard controller. It's pretty much the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music, especially in Ableton Live - because it's been designed specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately spring into life, giving you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer.

Of course, if you don't use Ableton, it'll automatically map to other major music software too. You can even connect it to your iPad with a Camera Connect Kit and use it with your Novation Apps.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. Although Launchkey was designed for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs control of all other major music software too using InControl.

Launchkey is fully USB bus-powered and class compliant, so it works straight away without power supplies or drivers. You can also connect it to your iPad via Camera Connection Kit and it'll work automatically with your Novation Launchkey and Launchpad Apps.
