LAUNCHKEY LIGHTS UP
April 22, 2015
Introducing the new and improved Launchkey MIDI controllers from Novation. Coming in 25-, 49- and 61-note sizes, the updated line now has RGB velocity-sensitive pads that match users’ clip colours for more intuitive workflow. The Launchkey automatically integrates with Ableton Live to give instant hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer. All three models have pitch and modulation wheels, buttons for transport control and eight rotary knobs above the pads. The 49- and 61-note versions include nine faders for more comprehensive session integration. The units are USB bus-powered, saving you the hassle of lugging around a power supply. Launchkey comes bundled with Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and a 1GB collection of samples from Loopmasters.
