The Novation Launchkey Mini MK3 Keyboard Controller is an evolution of the ever-popular portable 25-mini-key format controller. Designed for use with Ableton Live it's now more versatile, adaptable and playable than ever, allowing you to make tracks wherever and whenever you are thanks to the new arpeggiator, Fixed Chord mode, Capture MIDI, RGB pads, transport controls and more.

Touch Control

Featuring Novation's best and most responsive mini-keymech to date, playing your parts is a joy with Launchkey Mini. The keys feel solid but fast and despite the tight packaging you still feel free to explore all your creative avenues with aplomb. Alongside the comfortable keys you also get 16 newly designed RGB backlit pads that can be used for drums, one-shots or even melodic part triggering providing palpable production for your concepts. Modulation and pitch touch strips let you add texture to your sounds and there's a sustain pedal input for further player augmentation.

Creative Expression

The new Fixed Chord mode and arpeggiator help you take your ideas to horizons new, letting you trigger chords from single notes or turn held chords into riffs, melodies and sequences on the fly. The Capture MIDI button ensures you never lose your notes, even if you haven't hit record yet. The deep integration with Ableton Live means you spend more time creating and less time clicking buttons thanks to the Dedicated transport buttons as well as the mixer's Mute, Solo, Volume, Pan and Send controls. You can take direct control of eight different parameters with the eight rotary encoders, allowing for tactile control over your mix.

Software Solutions

The Launchkey Mini gives you everything you need out of the box to get stuck into recording your latest opus thanks to a variety of sounds, virtual instruments and plug-ins. You get content from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand as well as ongoing membership of the Novation Sound Collective that gets you free content every few months. The MIDI out port gives you further options for sound sculpting, allowing you to connect hardware synths and grooveboxes and the Launchkey Mini is also perfectly at home in any other DAW environment with included mapping templates for Logix, Cubase, Reason or any other HUI-compatible DAW.

The Novation Launchkey Mini MK3 Keyboard Controller is everything you need to start creating music in Ableton Live in a portable package that will fit in your backpack. With plenty of tangible choices for sound calibration, it does so much more than just letting you get hands-on with your melody making, allowing you to control your session with the transport controls and modulate your music.
