Novation announces Launchkey, a new line of keyboard controllers for use with both PC and iPad music applications.
Launchkey is a range of 25, 49 and 61 note keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-color trigger-pads that launch clips and scenes in Ableton Live. As well as enabling hands-on control of your DAW’s mixer, instruments and more, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument. The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad: the Launchkey app and the Launchpad app – plus the powerful V-Station & Bass Station synth plug-ins for Mac and Windows.
