Great entry-level MIDI workstation for production with Ableton! Thought about getting the mini and happy with the 49 keys one because it still fits on my desk. Purchased directly from the Novation website on Cyber Monday and received it in 2 days. 🙌
Elliot Hems-Mann
An awesome midi controller that works plug and play with DAW. I use Logic Pro X and makes writing music so much easier, I hardly ever have to touch the MacBook Keyboard anymore!!
Braden Blakley
Love this little keyboard. Exactly what I was looking for - simple, but robust features for songwriting and synthesizing.
My first MIDI but sticking with it for a reason! Takes a bit of time to figure out how to get most out of it but would highly recommend.
Lorena Campos

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
Awesome product for beginner at a much affrodable price.
Excelente producto, es más de lo que esperaba. Estoy muy feliz.

This latest generation of Launchkey is our most focused MIDI keyboard controller for Ableton Live. It's the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music – because we designed it specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately give you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer. Of course, if you don't use Ableton, it will map to other major music software too using InControl.

Designed for Ableton Live:
All controls work immediately and can be freely reassigned.

See your session in full colour:
RGB pads match the colour of your clips.

Create expressive beats:
All 16 pads are velocity-sensitive for creating dynamic drum beats.

Shape your sound:
Tweak your instruments and effects to perfection using eight rock solid knobs

Take it anywhere:
Compact and tough enough to chuck in your bag without needing a power cable

Control all major music software:
Get automatic hands-on control of other DAWs

Plug in and play:
USB bus-powered and totally class compliant, so it works straight away without any drivers

Includes Ableton Live Lite, one of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and over 4GB of Loopmasters samples.
