Novation Launchkey 25 (MK2)

Novation's Launchkey 25 (MK2) Keyboard is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. Just plug in via USB and the keys, knobs, and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer.

Launch clips, control FX, play beats, and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full color RGB LEDs mean they'll match the color of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats.

Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like, using eight rock solid rotary knobs for tweaking your instruments and effects. If you need even more control of your mixer the Novation Launchkey 49 and 61 also include nine dedicated faders.

The 25-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances.

Key Features:

  • All controls work immediately and can be freely reassigned.
  • Full-color RGB pads match the color of your clips.
  • All 16 pads are velocity-sensitive for creating dynamic drum beats.
  • Tweak your instruments and effects using eight rock solid knobs.
  • The 25-note velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast, and very easy to play.
  • Compact and tough enough to throw in your bag.
  • Get automatic hands-on control of other DAWs using InControl.
  • Class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC, so it works without drivers or a power cable.
  • Includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and over 4GB of Loopmasters samples.
  • It also includes 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST, customers choice.

All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. Of course, if you do not use Ableton, it will map to other major music software using InControl.

Launchkey 25 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 won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class compliant and USB bus-powered on Mac or PC.  
Launchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 4GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters

  • [Discontinued] Novation Nocturn 25 Bag

    Novation's new laptop bags are designed to carry a whole lot more than just your laptop. 
    The bag will fit all Novation 25 key Synths or MIDI controllers, such as the X-Station 25 or ReMOTE 25SL. An additional divide can be used if you wish to split the compartment and house headphones, cables and other accessories. This space is also ideally sized to house either Focusrite's desktop Saffire solutions, a Novation nio 2|4 or the new Nocturn.
    The laptop space is large enough to house a 17" laptop (without using protective sleeve), complete with velcro straps to secure it. Additionally, a space for sheet music is provided on the rear and the bag features both a handle and shoulder strap.
    Finally, while limited stocks last, the Novation laptop bag ships with a free laptop protector, protecting your laptop from the rigors of the road.

    Bass Station II is an analog mono-synth based on the classic original Bass Station but re-worked for the 21st century. It has two filters, three oscillators, patch save and a fully analog effects section. Add a step sequencer, arpeggiator, full sized keys and a powerful modulation section and you have the makings of a synth that is built for bass, but capable of so much more.
