This product is really simple to use. Although you may want to have a little bit of knowledge for using Ableton beforehand, you can easily learn how to use it. I recommend this product for beginners as it's basic, and serves your purpose to a certain extent. I can vouch for this, as I am a beginner myself. Also if you are worried about delivery time and are in a hurry, have no fear. Mine arrived within two days and in great condition. No damage or missing parts. If you are skeptical about its portability, don't. It's really portable. I bring mine everywhere. No messy cables, no need to recharge it or anything, so that if you are in a hurry, you can immediately pack it up.

It is the perfect keyboard to travel with and can be linked to an ipad with a little help from the tech. dept.

The best thing I can say about the mini is originally I bought it for when I am travelling or not in my studio and it is now my studio keyboard...I sold my big midi keyboard as this just fits the bill. Great key feel simple yet usable and compliments my launchpad so well. Love it!
Eric
For Ableton Live in particular my original model Launchkey Mini gets as much daily use as my QWERTY keyboard. Straightforward modes make it simple to operate by not overloading it with features that would require a display in order to see current states. Features lacking such as pitchbend & modwheel, aftetouch, master channel fader, and arpggiator, tend to be missing from most of the competing products from Akai, M-Audio and others - and where they do have some of those features, lack the tight integration with Ableton Live that all Novation controllers appear to have by default.

A brilliant adequate midi controller for any beginner of learning to play play Piano or learning EDM sample looping or patterns. A good price also.
Paul
Is a very nice compact piece of production, very intuitive and fully workable with ableton! I Love it!
Adrian
As a relative newbie to computer produced music and midi controllers, I wanted something not too complicated or expensive to control Ableton, and give me a keyboard as well, so I went for the Launchkey Mini, and it does the job just fine. Ableton recognised it from the start, and it's very easy to use. Does what it says on the tin! I'll be upgrading to a Launchkey 49 or 61 soon with any luck, they're that good! Recommended.
Justin
Does exactly what i need it to do. Compact and extremely functional. Accurate responsiveness and super easy to configure with Reason.
Dan
A truly fantastic, robust and beautiful product. For the price, you can't go far wrong. I use this a a MIDI controller to control Traktor effects and It's just perfect.
Erich
Love it for FL studio, quick simple and a cheap option. 5 stars!
Denis
Don't let the size full you; this is a piece of technology that's highly customizable for various sessions... Thanks Novation --
Kevin
I've been using my Launchkey Mini coupled with FL Studio HD on my iPad. It does everything I need it to do. I especially like the velocity sensitive keys. I am also a big fan of how portable it is.
Joseph
great price, awesome function, but horrible hardware design. The USB to mini usb connection is a joke. you will lose control and power w/in a month. too bad, i loved the keyboard. The mini hook up on the keyboard will quickly break. No power, no control... just dead
Dariel
Awesome. Great keyboard to start your producer career
Nicholas
Nice midi controller. Keys are a great size to swiftly move around and the drum pads have a nice feel to them. Great build quality just wish there was more support for more platforms!
Alejandro
Very portable and great for on the road work. I just love how the keyboard feels overall with the ability to assign sounds to each pad or with the knobs control some of the effects. If anybody is looking for a great portable keyboard, the Novation Launchkey Mini is one i'd recommend for both amateurs and professionals.
Chuck
Great portability and function for Live. Keys feel fine for mini keys, but don't expect a semi-weighted key feel. Any type of pitch bend & mod wheel inclusion would have made it 5 stars. A little combo bend wheel would be great.
Bhup
Ideal for ipad and young kids
Joshua
Love being able to carry this around in my bag at college so that when a melody pops in my head, I can get it in Ableton immediately
Andrew
Novation's Launchkey Mini has all of the quality and features I need to be creative in my music as well as being portable so I can produce on the go.

Launchkey Mini has been designed to make it easy and fun to produce electronic music. All the controls work as soon as you plug it in and are arranged to make the most sense in Ableton Live. 16 velocity-sensitive pads let you launch clips and play beats. They light up to show you when clips are loaded, playing and recorded and are laid out to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. You can also easily tweak your instruments using eight high-quality knobs, and sketch out ideas on a 25-note mini keyboard with a fast synth-style action that makes it really nice to play.

Launchkey Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can take it 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 bus-powered via USB. You can also connect it to your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit to control all sorts of iOS music apps, like Novation's free Launchkey App.

Launchkey Mini also integrates immediately with FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase and Logic without any mapping whatsoever. It comes with everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 1GB of samples from Loopmasters.
