Excelente producto, estoy empezando a Producir música y este teclado tiene todo lo que necesito, lo recomiendo.
Alejandro Dobrovolsky
Excelent product. I had problems with the INCONTROL buttons in Ableton Live, but I solved the issue upgrading the firmware to the latest version.The keys are lighter than I expected, which makes me think in how hard I should press the keys everytime I play, compared to another Keyboard I have. But I hope this is not something bad.
Amazing product at a great price! Highly recommended!
The Novation Launchkey 49 is alright for its price. The pads are a bit shaggy and needs a bit of practice before one can use them properly..
Very well designed, could be more compatible with other softwares.
I had problems installing ProTools on my Windows 10. Now I successfully use Ableton together with Launchkey 49 and Scarlett solo. I would strongly recommend Novation and Focusrite to any modern musician.
An excellent tool for production beginners!
Mr Dimitrios Komvos
Exactly what I needed for my music production. As far as I've seen, this is the best controller for the price.
Mr Nitzan Bueno
Keys are of excellent quality, and to my pleasant surprise I learned that the Launchkey can also work with FL studio. It looks very good, fits on my desk and is a charm to play.
Mr Vineet Kumar

Novation Launchkey (MK2) is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer.

Launch clips, control FX, play beats and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full colour RGB LEDs mean they'll match the colour of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats.

Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. Use eight rock solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects, and nine dedicated faders for hands-on control of your mixer. The 49-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances.

All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. It also integrates with FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Studio One and Logic. We call this InControl technology, because it puts you in control immediately without any manual mapping.

Launchkey 49 is tough enough to take and use anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won't need any drivers or power cables, because it's class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC.

Launchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 1GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters.
