The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, June 3, 2022 – At Novation (booth 201A), we are constantly striving for innovation in music technology, developing hardware that removes the barriers to creativity for the artists and creators within our community. Now, Novation is proud to introduce our newest range of MIDI keyboard controllers.
FLkey Mini and FLkey 37
First, say hello to FLkey Mini and FLkey 37 – the first MIDI keyboard controllers fully integrated with FL Studio. The FLkey range comes as a first for Novation. Fully integrated with FL Studio for seamless music production and an intuitive workflow, the FLkey Mini and FLkey 37 MIDI controllers are primed with everything the passionate music producer needs to create music with ease in their favourite DAW.
FLkey brings FL Studio’s mixer off screen and puts music production right into the producer’s hands. Suitable for any level of FL Studio user, essential controls are right at their fingertips with powerful musical features to keep creativity and inspiration flowing.
Take control of FL Studio’s Step Sequencer straight from the keyboard – no mouse needed. Producers can program beats and make high quality tracks with ease thanks to FLkey’s Channel rack playability straight from the pads. With Mixer controls directly on the hardware, mixes can be tweaked to perfection immediately. Creators can stay inspired during studio sessions with Scale and Fixed Chord modes, so they’ll always hit the right note and craft perfect melodies. With FLkey, you can control instruments and automation, browse presets from Image Line plug-ins, and assign custom controls with Custom Modes for the ultimate tailored workflow in FL Studio.
FLkey Mini is the perfect companion for the FL Studio user on the move. The compact 25-mini-key MIDI keyboard combines hands-on control of the most important FL Studio features with our best mini keys to date. Producers can stay focused on honing their sound and get closer to their productions with less time spent working on a computer screen.
Novation’s FLkey is the ideal keyboard and MIDI controller for high quality music production in FL Studio. FLkey’s intuitive features help producers to amplify their creativity, finish tracks fast, and keep on creating. The perfect tool to help aspiring producers develop skills and learn while they create, FLkey brings artists closer to their music and lets them create with no limits.
Novation also introduces Launchkey 88, its first 88-key MIDI keyboard controller. Designed for the player, Launchkey 88 elevates musical performance and song writing with unique inspirational features, 16 velocity-sensitive pads and an 88-key semi-weighted keybed designed to capture every detail of the player’s expression.
The highly successful Launchkey range has garnered a dedicated community of creators of all abilities thanks to its unmatched deep integration with Ableton and sizes including the portable Launchkey Mini, 25-, 37-, 49- and 61-key models. As an 88-key MIDI keyboard has often been requested by the Novation community, Launchkey 88 fulfils this need and brings a premium 88-key keybed created with Novation’s 30-year history of innovative MIDI keyboard design.
Launchkey 88’s premium semi-weighted keybed sets it apart from the rest of the Launchkey range. Launchkey 88 features Novation’s best feeling keymech to date, the result of meticulous refinement and testing.

Inspirational features unlock new melodic potential. Bring out unexpected melodies with the powerful Arpeggiator, always stay in key with Scale mode, and three Chord modes make it easy to trigger complex chords with a single finger.
