Your mini production keyboard for Ableton Live
Launchkey Mini is our most compact and portable MIDI keyboard. It’s perfect for sketching out ideas in Ableton Live or any other major music software, using its mini keyboard, velocity-sensitive pads and high-quality knobs. All its controls integrate immediately and can be freely reassigned to anything you like, so you can produce music however you want and wherever you want!
Easily Capture Your Ideas
It’s small, but Launchkey Mini has everything you need to create new tunes. Its 25-note mini keyboard has a fast synth-style action that makes it really easy to play. It's also velocity-sensitive, so you can make your performances as expressive as you like, while you bash out rhythms, loops and beats on the multicoloured pads. Eight knobs mean you can also tweak your sound to perfection as you go.
Get Started Immediately
As soon as you plug in, you’ll get immediate hands-on control of Ableton, FL Studio, Pro Tools™, Reason, Cubase and Logic without any mapping whatsoever. You’ll also get everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 1GB of samples from Loopmasters.
Take It Anywhere
Compact and tough enough to chuck in your bag, you can use Launchkey Mini anywhere. You won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class-compliant and bus-powered via USB. In fact, you won’t even need your laptop: if you prefer to produce with your iPad®, just grab a Camera Connection Kit to start controlling your Novation Launchkey and Launchpad Apps too.
