Plug straight into Live, get your ideas down & create – Launchkey Mini gets any track moving.

Launchkey Mini’s deep and intuitive integration with Live lets you move where the music takes you. Transport, device & mixer controls mean fewer mouse clicks. Device macros and mixer controls mean more hands-on control of your music. Launchkey Mini puts the sounds from your head into your hands.

It comes with everything you need to make tracks in the box, including sounds, instruments & effects from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio & Klevgrand – plus membership of Novation Sound Collective.
