USB Midi Controller Keyboard. Launchkey is a range of keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour launch pads that trigger clips and scenes in Ableton Live. As well as enabling hands-on control of your DAW’s mixer, transport 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.


Novation Launchkey (MK2) 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.

  • [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.

It has two filters, three oscillators, patch save and a fully analog effects section.
