June 18th, 2020 - Novation’s Launchkey range of keyboard controllers has for many years been the best choice for music makers at all stages of the music-making journey. With the release of the Launchkey [MK3] range, Novation continues the Launchkey legacy with four feature-packed controllers that give music makers everything they need to make tracks in Ableton Live and with their hardware. Launchkey [MK3] controllers come in four model sizes, and pack in more inspirational music-making features, more expressive pads and keys, and deeper Ableton Live integration than ever before. The 37-key model is completely new to the Launchkey family, and stands alone as the most comprehensive controller of its size with full-size keys on the market.
Launchkey [MK3] controllers are available in 25-, 37-, 49- and 61-key variants, making it easier than ever for creators to pick the size that suits. For the first time in the Launchkey range, there’s a 37-key model, which answers the requests of music makers who want a compact controller large enough for two-handed keys work. Its pitch and mod wheels are relocated to the top panel so the three-octave keyboard can fit into a small form factor, so it’s ideal for users with space limitations. The 25-key model is perfect for mobile producers and performers, and for those in tighter setups. 49- and 61-key versions are well suited for larger systems, and for those who want more keys and greater hands-on control with faders and fader buttons.
All Launchkey [MK3] controllers feature a full-size five-pin MIDI output, which works with any MIDI-compatible device. Novation Components can be used to configure MIDI parameter assignments of Launchkey’s knobs, faders and pads, to take control of anything MIDI. Launchkey [MK3] works standalone, so it’s the perfect controller for any music-making scenario, with or without a computer. The Scale and Chord Modes, arpeggiator, and Custom Modes — set up in Novation Components and stored on Launchkey — can all be used to control a whole studio or live rig.
Launchkey also has full integration with Logic and Reason, plus out of the box functionality with other DAWs including Studio One, Cubase and Pro Tools, via HUI.
