Excellent keyboard and great value
Ricardo Fragoso Vergara
muy buen producto a muy buen precio
Stefan Paradies
Like expected!
Arturo De la Cruz
This is my first midi keyboard and it's amazing for the price. It has enough knobs, sliders and buttons that you can control almost all of Ableton with it, greatly improving workflow. The keys themselves are good, they don't feel amazing but they don't feel cheap either. Great for the price. Only thing I don't like about the product is the velocity sensitivity, you can change it but I had to press them super hard to get a decent volume, so I just turned it off. Would recommend to anyone on a budget or as a first keyboard.

i'm really satisfied with this midi controller!
love my new keyboard. I haven't learned all of the features yet but am looking forward to having and using this for a long time.

Great MIDI controller
Melānija Grunte
Perfect product. Only thing I could complain about is how much pressure one has to use to play the drumpads (but its alright). Also the volume of the drumpads seems a little bit random, its not too easy to control it with pressure and get the desired volume.
Good value for the Price
Rodrigo Bermudez
I still didn't try the product because I had problems with the purchase
Very great!
Brandon Morrissey
Solid piece of gear, very satisfied with the purchase.
Hamza Yoshioka
the keyboard felt good, the knobs and the pitch bend and mod wheel feels good too. The velocity could have been better but after making few tweaks it was good.
Doc Bizzle
I love how versatile the Launchkey is for the money. It allows me to have a mixer for Ableton tracks, keyboard control, and is easy to transpose and switch midi channels. I love this keyboard. It's the second one I've purchased.
Daniel Buenconcejo
Its a totally cool item to use. I will enjoy my keyboard learning for sure
Pedro Pertierra
Easy setup, great software bundle and very nice feel over all. The best 61 key controller in its range!

Novation is all you can trust on the road. It’s a workhorse that keeps working.
Novation where good in the manufacturing class and also output of the product are too good.when comes dynamics it kick out best it can within given space of its work class
This is a great controller and works well with Ableton. This was a refurbished product but it looks just like a new. No cosmetic wear just like new. This is the latest release and also includes the software which you normally don't get with a second hand controller. Great price, great feature. I love it.
Patrick Bickerton
Works straight out the box and makes using Ableton even more enjoyable - it's very impressive and intuitively laid out. Lovely feel too.
Mr William Lebeuf

This 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

Make music immediately:
Includes Ableton Live Lite, one of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments and over 4GB of Loopmasters samples.

Enjoy two years of warranty:
Rely on our two-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault
