Overview

Novation Launchkey 49 is one of quickest and easiest ways 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-color RGB LEDs mean they'll match the color of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats. Includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and 4GB of Loopmasters samples along with one of four VSTs from XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys

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. Novation calls 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' class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC.

Launchkey 49 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.

      Comments about Novation Launchkey 49 MIDI Controller:

      The keys feels just right. The pads not much but still very functionals. No full integration with MainStage yet, works great with Live and Reason.

          i use this product with FL Studio and it seamlessly integrates with 2-click for any slider, knob, or pad.

          keys pads, knobs and sliders feel smooth, selected channel in FL gets midi input automatically.

          Great MIDI controller for the money

          Comments about Novation Launchkey 49 MIDI Controller:

          I liked this controller and its price was great but it did not have the led screen that the AKAI ADVANCE had so i paid over double the price to get that controller and i love it.... But all said the Launchkey will do everything that the Advance will do but you will need to look at your laptop vs the led screen on the controller itself.
