The 61-key Controller for Ableton
The Novation Launchkey 61 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, faders, 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 61. Don't launch your DAW without it.
Sculpt your sound to perfection
Novation's Launchkey 61 lets you sculpt your sound to perfection. Use the Launchkey's eight rock-solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and the nine dedicated faders for hands-on control over your mixer. You'll find the 61-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 61 will instantly map to it via Novation's InControl protocol.
Your ideal gigging controller
The Launchkey 61 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.
