Essential keyboard controller with everything you need to make music, collaborate and jam in Ableton Live

Launchkey is our easy-to-use MIDI keyboard controller. It's pretty much the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music, especially in Ableton Live – because we designed it specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately spring into life, giving you hands-on control of your grid,instruments, effects and mixer.

 

Of course, if you don’t use Ableton, it’ll automatically map to other major music software too

 

Everything You Need

All Launchkey controllers come with Loopmasters sounds, BassStation and V-Station synths from Novation, and your choice of one of Addictive Keys’ pro-grade virtual keyboard instruments. Free lessons from Melodics help you hone your pad drumming and keyboard skills to make you a better player. In addition to Ableton Live Lite 9, this bundle of software gives you loads of inspiration for making new music and jamming out live with your gear.



Play with Feeling

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. You can choose between 25, 49 and 61-note versions, depending on whether you want portability or practicality.
