If you like hands-on control of your software, you’ll definitely want to check out Novation‘s new Launchkey Series of USB keyboard controllers. They’re comprehensive controllers for any software platform, but the multicolor launchpads make the Launchkey Series especially appealing to Ableton Live users. Available in 25-, 49-, and 61-key versions, these controllers are designed to further close the gap between hardware instruments and software.
If you’re using Ableton Live, you can use the 16 multicolor launchpads to play drums, trigger loops, and launch clips – all without having to touch your mouse or look at your computer keyboard. But no matter what DAW you use, the Launchkey’s InControl technology will instantly map its faders, knobs, and transport controls to your software. And right out of the box, Launchkey controllers come with an entire software suite for instant music making.
On top of a great set of flexible control options, Launchkey controllers also feature great-feeling synth-action keyboards, with pitch and mod wheels plus octave up/down buttons. And if you’re performing live, Launchkey controllers are a great solution for putting a ton of software functions at your fingertips.
