Novation LaunchKey MINI MK2 25-note mini-keyboard controller is Novation's most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller. It may
be small, but it gives you everything you need to create new tunes in Ableton Live without
cluttering up your desk.
Launchkey Mini has been designed to make it easy and fun to produce electronic music. All the
controls work as soon as you plug it in and are arranged to make the most sense in Ableton Live.
16 velocity-sensitive pads let you launch clips and play beats. They light up to show you when
clips are loaded, playing and recorded and are laid out to match your Ableton Live session view;
one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. You can also easily tweak your instruments
using eight high-quality knobs, and sketch out ideas on a 25-note mini keyboard with a fast synth-
style action that makes it really nice to play.
Launchkey Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can take it 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. You can also connect it to your iPad
via a Camera Connection Kit to control all sorts of iOS music apps, like Novation's free Launchkey
Launchkey Mini also integrates immediately with FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase and Logic
without any mapping whatsoever. It comes with everything you need to start making music,
including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 1GB of samples from Loopmasters.
