For the ultimate in portable and compact production, the Novation LaunchKey Mini MK2 Keyboard Controller punches well above its weight. With velocity sensitive keys, masses of assignable controllers and the ability to work with PC, Mac and iOS6 (or greater) devices, the LaunchKey Mini MK2 delivers huge value for money.
At the heart of the LaunchKey Mini MK2, you will find 25 velocity sensitive mini keys, the bonus here is that other controllers that use mini-keys may be lacking in touch sensitivity, which will have a massive impact on your expression and creativity.
Whether you are using the LaunchKey Mini MK2 to play classical instrument parts, or to lay down dirty synth or basslines, every nuance of your playing style will be faithfully recreated.
The LaunchKey Mini MK2 was optimised to work seamlessly with Ableton Live, however thanks to the amount of assignable controllers, it's able to to control any DAW you wish including Reason, FL Studio, Pro-Tools, Cubase and more. 8 rotary encoders can be used to control filters, volumes, tempo and any other assignable functions.
Further to this, the LaunchKey Mini MK2 comes with track -/+ buttons to easily navigate through your song and octave shift buttons so that you easily have access to a full playing range that you would get with a larger keyboard.
One thing that will instantly catch your eye on the Launchkey Mini Mk 2 are the 16 RGB backlit velocity-sensitive pads. Use these to colour match to your clips for easy triggering of percussion sounds and scenes, ideal for clear direction in the studio, or for guidance when performing at darker venues.
