This latest generation of Launchkey is Novation's most focused MIDI keyboard controller for Ableton Live. It's the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music because it was designed specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately give you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer. Of course, if you don't use Ableton, it will map to other major music software too using InControl.

Features:

• 49-note USB keyboard controller for Ableton Live: all controls work immediately and can be freely reassigned
• 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads, 8 knobs, and 9 sliders
• See your session in full colour: RGB pads match the colour 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 to perfection using eight rock solid knobs
• Dedicated navigation and control buttons
• Software for Mac and PC
• Fully USB bus-powered and class compliant, so it works straight away without any drivers
• Practice rhythm: Use Melodics to improve your keyboard skills and hone your pad drumming skills for free.

Software Included
- Ableton Live Lite
- 4 GB of Loopmasters sounds and samples
- One of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments
- Novation Bass Station VST and AU plug-in synthesiser
