Overview

Launchkey Mini MKII is Novation's most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller. It may be small, but it gives you everything you need to create new tunes in Ableton Live without cluttering up your desk. Includes 4GB of Loopmasters Samples, and one of four VSTs from XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys.

Launchkey Mini MKII 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 enjoyable to play.

Launchkey Mini MKII 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 wont need any drivers or power cables, because its 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 MKII 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 XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 4GB of samples from Loopmasters.

    Comments about Novation Launchkey Mini MKII:

    this is the best compact midi controller i have ever used. the pads are amazingly tactile and work great as both clip and sound triggers. the setup of the scene launch is great too. one-button switch from ableton live "in control" mode to user mode is key as well.

    i have no complaints. 4 rows of pads would be awesome, but then it wouldn't be as compact. integration with ableton live is seamless and awesome.

      Comments about Novation Launchkey Mini MKII:

      I've had it for a month now. When I first got it I was a little skeptical because of how overwhelming Ableton seemed at first. Didn't think this little thing would do much as far as controls were concerned. I was very wrong. After a month of practice and alot of YouTube videos I'm currently producing my first song (Dubstep)

          Comments about Novation Launchkey Mini MKII:

          I bought this in store and it was a model that wasn't on display. I have purchased Novation products before and even tested out some of this model's bigger brothers. I wish I tested this model directly because the quality of the key pad is downright horrible, even for a mini. The rest of the build quality is just OK at best.

          Comments about Novation Launchkey Mini MKII:

          This product is great the launch (if you will) youre music production career. That is the reason why I bought one. It comes with Ableton Lite and works very well with the program. I've still got quite a bit to learn but the device itself seems great. The keys and drumpads are velocity sensitive. Only problem with that is the keys have a hard time registering velocity, so most of the time you have to put a fixed velocity function (in my experience so far). But I highly recommend this product if you are just starting out or want to dink around and check out if music production is what you want to do.

          The Launchkey Mini is very portable, and is functional. But the keys and pads feel flimsy compared to other controllers.

          Comments about Novation Launchkey Mini MKII:

          Almost everything on the launchkey was fun to use. The largest downside was the keyboard. The sides of the keyboards scratched together, it felt very bad on my fingers. I would have tried to get another one, but guitar center only had 1 in stock at my store.
