The 25-key Controller for Ableton

The Novation Launchkey 25 is your quick and easy solution for producing and performing electronic music using Ableton Live. But even if you use another DAW, you'll appreciate the Launchkey's ergonomic layout and just-right feel. Simply plug it into your computer's USB port and the keys, fader, knobs, and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you complete hands-on control of Ableton's session view, instruments, effects, and mixer. Launch your clips, control your effects, play beats, and more with the Launchkey's 16 pads. They're fitted with full-color RGB LEDs, so they'll precisely match the color of your clips, and their velocity sensitivity means you can pack your beats with expression. The Novation Launchkey 25. Don't launch your DAW without it.

  • Designed for Ableton, works with any DAW

Sculpt your sound to perfection

Novation's Launchkey 25 lets you sculpt your sound to perfection. Use the Launchkey's eight rock-solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and the dedicated fader for hands-on control over selectable mixer channels. You'll find the 25-note synth-weighted keybed delightful to play. Of course, it's velocity-sensitive so you can perform your parts expressively.

Designed for Ableton, works with any DAW

Many Sweetwater musicians use Abelton and love the streamlined workflow they get from Novation's Launchkey controllers. That's because Novation designed the Launchkey's controls to integrate immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live. All the controls are completely assignable, however. And if you do use another major DAW, the Launchkey 25 will instantly map to it via Novation's InControl protocol.

Your ideal gigging controller

The Launchkey 25 is roadworthy enough for you to use anywhere. It's ready-to-rock the second you plug it into your laptop. And you don't need drivers or power cables because it's USB bus-powered and class-compliant. Out of the box, Launchkey comes with everything you need make music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station, and a killer 4GB library of session-ready samples from Loopmasters.

Free XLN Addictive Keys instrument with registration!

Launchkey 25

Customer service was awesome! my Launchkey 25 is a beautiful piece and is working lovely,thank you Sweetwater! my only wish is that it had come with an higher grade of ableton, either way I'm pleased and plan to use Sweetwater in the future! Thanx!

Just the right size

Bought this little fella to work on projects when I was on the road or just fleshing out song ideas. Its ability to not only work with ableton, but to work with any software or midi set up is impressive. Lightweight, yet the synth action on the keys is surprisingly good (to me anyways). Very playable / expressive. In fact, I now use this instead of my old 49 key midi board as my second board in my setup at church. I trigger clips/scenes in ableton while controlling mainstage parameters with the knobs. You can split the "In Control" so the pads control ableton and the knobs control other software or vice verse. Very cool indeed. Well worth the modest investment. If you're looking for a secong midi controller, I would highly recommend you look at this as one of your options.
