Novation Launchkey MK3 25-Key USB MIDI Ableton Keyboard Controller

Novation Launchkey MK3 25 is an intuitive and fully integrated MIDI keyboard controller for making tracks in Ableton Live and with your external equipment. The Launchkey experience is designed for players of all types and abilities. With this controller, regardless of experience, you can create and play your music like never before. With its various musical creation features, all of which can be used standalone, Launchkey removes barriers to creativity and expands the musical vocabulary of even the most talented keyboardists.

Various Modes

Eight Scale modes guide you into new musical territory, by transposing keys played to notes in the scale selected. Simply choose your root note and your preferred scale, then play. Three Chord modes transform the keys and pads into an interactive surface of musical exploration, where every note played is tonally and harmonically linked. The arpeggiator lets you explore new melodies and find ideas quickly, while the mutate function reconstructs your patterns into exciting new forms.

Customizable for Convenience

Custom Modes simplify the relationship between controller and software, with more power than ever in your hands. Programmable using the Novation Components browser-based tool, Custom Modes lets you design the behavior of your Launchkey, with control over control assignments, MIDI routing, pad color, and much more.

5-Pin MIDI DIN Output

Launchkey MK3 25 is equipped with a full-size 5-pin MIDI DIN output, enabling a simple connection to the universe of MIDI devices — new and old. Coupled with its immense standalone potential, Launchkey is now the centerpiece to your live or studio system — computer or not.

Integration with Ableton Live

The Launchkey platform has always been about flexibility, and the MK3 revision carries this mantra at its core. Larger, improved velocity-sensitive pads provide greater control over dynamics, and eight fixed rotary knobs bring your software to life at your fingertips. The integration with Ableton Live is truly seamless, with a dedicated button for activating the Capture MIDI function, plus track arm, quantize, click and loop controls, for flying around your Session faster than ever. Not an Ableton Live user? No problem, Launchkey also has full integration with Logic and Reason, plus out-of-the-box functionality with other DAWs including Studio One, Cubase, and Pro Tools, via HUI.

Included Collection of Software

Whether starting out or locked in a groove, Launchkey is the controller keyboard to take you further on your musical journey. With a collection of software instruments, including Ableton Live Lite, Spitfire Audio LABS Expressive Strings, XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette, and AAS Session Bundle, Launchkey 25 equips you with an amazing bundle of sounds.

Cubase 12 Integration with Update

Launchkey now has deeper integration with Cubase 12 in the latest update from Steinberg. This update sees a significant improvement upon the previous HUI script, giving Launchkey seamless integration with Cubase. Get closer to your music with quick access to essential Cubase DAW controls, automatic setup, and deeper mixer control. Get the perfect mix and tweak on-screen parameters straight from the hardware.

v1.1 Firmware Update

The firmware v1.1 update introduces the new Strum Mode feature. Users can hold down notes and trigger Strum Mode by using the mod wheel on the Launchkey [MK3]. Strum Mode can also be used alongside other arpeggiator modes to really ramp up your musical imagination.
