Novation Launchkey 61 includes 61 smooth, synth-weighted keys, nine faders and buttons, eight encoders, and dedicated transport controls. Its 16 velocity-sensitive three-colour launch pads that both trigger and stop clips and scenes in Ableton Live and allow expressive playing in the drum rack. Launchkey includes Ableton Live Lite 9 to allow you to make music immediately, as well as Novation Bass Station and V-Station synth plugins for even more creative possibilities. For even more value for those that need it, connect Launchkey to your iPad (Camera Connection Kit required) and enjoy deep integration with the free Launchkey and Launchpad apps.
16 multi-colour backlit velocity-sensitive launch pads can be used to play drums and trigger loops without having to go near the computer. Whatever software you use, the 16 launch pads are perfect for sketching out beats or playing in drum patterns, or triggering clips and scenes in Ableton Live. The top row of eight pads will launch clips and the bottom row will stop clips.
Novation Launchkey 61 comes with Ableton Live Lite 9, Novation Bass Station and V-Station synth plugins, and an extensive Loopmasters sample pack. Launch loops and samples with the velocity sensitive Launch pads and control Ableton Live and the included synths with Launchkey’s knobs and sliders.
Launchkey 61 is a controller for all major music software, giving you hands-on control of your mixer, transport and more in Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Logic and Cubase. With nine faders, nine buttons, eight rotary knobs and transport controls, nothing comes close to Launchkey for sheer controllability.
The velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard mechanism is accompanied by pitch and mod wheels and octave, track up/down buttons. It recreates the feel of classic synth keyboards with precision, so playing styles can be reflected by the software as accurately as possible.
