Novation's Launchkey is a 25-note keyboard controller with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour launch pads that trigger and stop clips - and launch scenes - in Ableton Live.  As well as enabling hands-on control of your DAW's mixer, instruments and more, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument.  The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad: the Launchkey app and the Launchpad app* - plus the powerful V-Station & Bass Station synth plug-ins for Mac and Windows.
*Requires the standard Apple Camera Connection kit (not included)

"InControl" technology instantly maps to all major DAWs and music software

Launchkey 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.

16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour launch pads - trigger loops and play drums

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.

Professional synth-styled keyboard (with over 50 hardware controls)

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.

Novation Launchpad for iPad

The Novation Launchpad is a music performance app for iPad that will have you making beats and triggering loops instantly.  It's packed full of high quality loops and sounds that can be combined in the multi-colour 8x6 Launchpad grid to make and remix music.  The built-in time stretching always keeps you locked in to the beat, so your loops don't go out of time.

Eight volume sliders allow quick volume changes and FX modes offer DJ effects such as beat-repeaters and synced filter effects, creating interesting ways to remix your music and make your performance unique. The app follows some of the key features from the amazing 'Launchpad' hardware, now used by many of the worlds famous DJs and performers.

High on power – low on complexity

The app follows some of the key features from the 'Launchpad' hardware, now used by many of the worlds famous DJs and performers, but strips out much of the complexity.  Eight volume sliders allow quick volume changes and simple FX modes offer cool DJ effects such as stutter FX and synced filter FX, adding fun ways to remix your music and make your performance unique.

How does it work with my Launchkey hardware?

The Launchpad app, along with the Launchkey app can transform your Launchkey hardware into a synth and loop triggering workstation for performing and producing music with your iPad.  The launch pads on the hardware trigger loops in the app and you can get hands-on control of levels with Launchkey’s physical faders.
