Amazing midi keyboard that gives you a lot of possibilities. From creative ways to play arp, use chords to play and scale all your notes. Ultimately it is the twin brother of Ableton Live. So usefull!

It's a beautiful piece of equipment, but trying to figure out how to use it from the manual, which you have to get online, is not working. I follow directions, but they don't seem correct.
Gunnar Aas
Very good !

I find the Launchkey product extremely versatile and capable. I was aware of Midi controllers and their advantages, and the Launchkey is above and beyond my expectations. I wouldn't be without it now and have purchased further Novation products as a testament to my faith in the brand. Add to this excellent service the fastest, most patient technical aftersales support. What's not to like? Awesome company.
Marco Gallo
Great product, works fine even on Presonus Studio One 5. Followed the video instructions that popped up as soon as I inserted the usb cable. Fantastic tutorial and very easy installation
Isaac Powell
I have found this product to be more than worth the money that I have spent on it. This is the first keyboard that I have explored in terms of advanced functionality, and it does not disappoint.
Keynan Bailey
I bought a refurbished unit but after my experience with it in the first week it's worth normal price for sure. It feels great and the range on a 61 key is refreshing after feeling stuck on 32. My only complaint is that a three and half foot keyboard came with a 3 foot USB cable. Seems a little silly. Great unit and I am happy every time I turn the corner and see it.
David House
Amazing. Even with little to no experience I am able to create with ease.
James Pittman
I don't know yet. It came with zero instructions on the different modes. I can't figure out how to switch my launchkey 67 mk3 over to DAW mode. The programmers manual makes no sense to me. I really need help.
Luis Perez
Love this piano!!!
David Martinez

Launchkey is our intuitive and fully MIDI keyboard controller for making tracks in Ableton Live and with your external equipment. The Launchkey experience is designed for players of all types and abilities. With Launchkey, regardless of experience, you can create and play your music like never before. With its various musical creation features, all of which can be used standalone, Launchkey removes barriers to creativity, and expands the musical vocabulary of even the most talented keyboardists.

Eight Scale modes guide you into new musical territory, by transposing keys played to notes in the scale selected. Simply choose your root note and your preferred scale, then play. Three Chord modes transform the keys and pads into an interactive surface of musical exploration, where every note played is tonally and harmonically linked. The arpeggiator lets you explore new melodies and find ideas quickly, while the mutate function reconstructs your patterns into exciting new forms.

Custom Modes simplify the relationship between controller and software, with more power than ever in your hands. Programmable using the Novation Components browser-based tool, Custom Modes let you design the behaviour of your Launchkey, with control over control assignments, MIDI routing, pad colour and much more.

Launchkey 61 [MK3] is equipped with a full-size five-pin MIDI DIN output, enabling simple connection to the universe of MIDI devices — new and old. Coupled with its immense standalone potential, Launchkey is now the centrepiece to your live or studio rig — computer or not.

The Launchkey platform has always been about flexibility, and the MK3 revision carries this mantra at its core. Larger, improved velocity-sensitive pads provide greater control over dynamics, and eight fixed rotary knobs bring your software to life at your fingertips. The integration with Ableton Live is truly seamless, with a dedicated button for activating the Capture MIDI function, plus track arm, quantise, click and loop controls, for flying around your Session faster than ever.

Not an Ableton Live user? No problem, Launchkey also has full integration with Logic and Reason, plus out of the box functionality with other DAWs including Studio One, Cubase and Pro Tool , via HUI.

Whether starting out or locked in a groove, Launchkey is the controller keyboard to take you further on your musical journey. With a collection of software instruments, including Ableton Live 10 Lite, Spitfire Audio LABS Expressive Strings, XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette, AAS Session Bundle and the Novation Sound Collective, Launchkey 61 equips you with an amazing bundle of sounds.

Firmware Update v1.1
The firmware v1.1 update introduces the Strum Mode feature. Users can hold down notes and trigger Strum Mode by using the mod wheel on the Launchkey [MK3]. Strum Mode can also be used alongside other arpeggiator modes to really ramp up your musical imagination.
