Novation Launchkey 25 (MK2) Description
Novation Launchkey (MK2) is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. Just plug in via USB and the keys, 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, using eight rock solid rotary knobs for tweaking your instruments and effects. If you need even more control of your mixer the Novation Launchkey 49 and 61 also include nine dedicated faders.
The 25-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 mapping.
Launchkey 25 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.
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.
