Launchkey 49 Mk2 USB Controller Keyboard description:

The Novation Launchkey 49 Mk2 USB Controller Keyboard is a powerful and versatile compact 49-key controller keyboard jam packed with features; ideal for both studio and live use. 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.

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.

The main features of the Novation Launchkey 49 Mk2 USB Controller Keyboard include:

  • 25, 49 or 61 note velocity sensitive synth style keyboard
  • 16 full-colour RGB backlit velocity sensitive drum pads
  • 8 knobs

A great MIDI controller for the money, especially if your main DAW is Ableton. But did take the time to follow the various simple setup videos to make sure you have all the functionality working and to use the InControl. Comes with Novation Bass-Station and V-Station which are both great and has the mapping layout for both.
