Novation's Launchkey Mini [MK3] is a feature-packed 25-key MIDI keyboard controller that provides musicians and producers with hands-on control of their DAW and virtual instruments. The Launchkey Mini [MK3] seamlessly integrates with popular DAWs like Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro and GarageBand using Novation's Launchkey Mini [MK3] app. Weighing under two pounds, this portable keyboard controller is ideal for creating and performing music on the go.

16 Velocity-Sensitive Pads for Triggering Loops and Samples

The Launchkey Mini [MK3] features 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads that can be used to launch clips, trigger drum sounds or play melodic samples. Each pad illuminates to provide visual feedback and the brightness changes based on the velocity of your playing.

Eight Knobs for Tweaking Synth and Effect Parameters

Eight assignable knobs give you hands-on control of virtual instrument and effect parameters. Map the knobs to filter cutoff, envelope attack, reverb depth and more. The knobs send MIDI CC data so they can control anything that responds to MIDI continuous controller messages.
