Made to Create

Launchkey is our intuitive and fully integrated MIDI keyboard controller for making tracks in Ableton Live, designed to give you everything you need to create and play your music. Made for creators of all abilities, Launchkey gives you inspirational tools to expand your musical vocabulary. Velocity-sensitive keyboard and 16 velocity-sensitive pads enable expressive and dynamic performances so that you can create and play with feeling. Scale and Chord modes and a powerful arpeggiator push your musical creativity and help start new ideas. Custom Modes and a full-size MIDI output transform Launchkey into a powerful centrepiece of any music-making setup.

Ableton Live Integration

Launchkey gives you unrivalled access to Ableton Live's functions, including Capture MIDI, track arm, click, and loop controls. Not using Ableton Live? No problem, 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.

Expand Your Musical Vocabulary

Inspirational features include Scale Mode, Chord Modes, and a powerful arpeggiator, which together extend your musical capabilities and let you create new ways. Scale Mode transposes keys and pads played to notes in the scale selected; three chord modes (fixed, scale, and user) let you trigger complex chords with one finger, while the powerful arpeggiator gets melodies moving, fast.

Custom Modes: Control Anything

The full-size five-pin MIDI output works with any MIDI-compatible device. Use Novation Components to configure four Custom Modes, which map Launchkey's knobs, faders, and pads to software and hardware features. This enables you to create unique control setups for any performance or studio rig. 

Standalone Operation

Launchkey works standalone, so it's the perfect controller for any music-making setup, with or without a computer. The Scale and Chord Modes, arpeggiator, and Custom Modes can all be used to control an all-hardware studio or live rig.
