Novation Launchkey 61 MK2 MIDI Keyboard

The MK2 version of Novation's essential 61-note USB keyboard controller for Ableton Live, with 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads, 8 knobs, dedicated navigation and control buttons, and software for Mac and PC, including Ableton Live Lite.

Watch artist Alex Maxwell perform on a Novation Launchkey controller in this video:


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 61-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 61 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, our Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 4GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.

Features:

- Designed for Ableton Live: All controls work immediately and can be freely reassigned.
- See Your Session: Full color RGB pads match the color of your clips.
- Create Expressive Beats: All 16 pads are velocity-sensitive for creating dynamic drum beats.
- Shape Your Sound: Tweak your instruments and effects using eight rock solid knobs.
- Create Expressive Performances: The 61-note velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play.
- Perfect Your Mix: Get hands-on control of your mixer using nine full-sized faders.
- Take It Anywhere: Compact and tough enough to throw in your bag without needing a power cable.
- Control All Major Music Software: Get automatic hands-on control of other DAWs using InControl.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great controller with great functions."
Overall: This is my first MIDI controller. I'm new to home recording, and DAWS, and all stuff like that so please excuse my lingo if it's not correct. I did ALOT of research before deciding to go with MK2. I love the seamless integration with Ableton. The slider/faders are pre assigned to the track volume. The buttons below them activate and deactivate the tracks. The eight knobs are pre-assigned on virtual instrument, plugins, effects, etc. The 16 trigger pads feel great and the lighting is super freaking cool. The keys feel like butter. Like damn you should see me play them...they make me sound like I can play with ANY band in SWFL. Anyways...this controller does everything that it says it does, nothing more, nothing less. For the price you can't go wrong. I'm extremely happy with my decision. Hope this review provides some insight to y'all that are looking for a MIDI controller that won't break the bank.
Style of Music: Jazz, blues, rock, country, pop, alternative, electronic, dude I don't limit myself to genres...music that doesn't suck how abou

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
