The perfect controller for Live

Novation worked with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live music-making software. The five color LCD screens give you full parameter feedback, enabling you to see everything you are controlling.

Internal eight-track pattern-based sequencer

Real-time record or input notes per step. Play and edit your sequences directly from the keyboard. Record your movements as automation into the sequencer, bringing life to your production.

One routable clock for the whole system

Whether you're in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analog clock and transport controls keep everything running in time.


Choose an arp type, set a sync rate, tweak the length, and then use the pads to design your rhythms in real time.

Customizable templates

Highly customizable mappings for hardware and software easily control everything. Create your own templates in the software editor, and save them to the keyboard.

LED feedback

Work with scales and keys and set up multiple zones and layers on the keyboard. See everything instantly with vibrant on-key RGB LED feedback.
