Small but perfectly formed, the LAUNCHKEY MINI was designed with portability, ease of use and fun in mind. And it shows. The makers, NOVATION, have drawn on over 20 years of quality sound heritage to make the MK2 one of the very best mobile instruments on the market. If you're looking for a smart, affordable MIDI keyboard controller to use both in the studio and during live performances - and you're constantly on the move - the LAUNCHKEY MINI MK2 from Digital DJ Music is most definitely for you.
This 25-note, bus-powered mini USB keyboard controller is designed for Ableton Live software, and features 16 velocity-sensitive multi-coloured pads, 8 knobs, dedicated navigation and control buttons, and software for Mac and PC, including Ableton Live Lite.
Don't be deceived by its compact size, the LAUNCHKEY MINI MK2 is packed to the rafters with outstanding, intuitive features. Drivers and power cables will be a thing of the past as all the controls spring into action the moment you plug it in. The velocity-sensitive multi-coloured pads allow you to launch clips and play beats and illuminate to indicate that clips are either loaded, playing or recorded. The intuitive layout matches your Ableton Live session view for added ease of use. Meanwhile, instruments can be tweaked using a series of 8 top-grade knobs, and ideas can be sketched out on the 25-key mini-keyboard, which features a fast synth-style action that makes playing a real pleasure.
The LAUNCHKEY MINI MK2 is compact and robust enough to stand up to being thrown in a bag and transported around. It can also be used to control a whole host of iOS music apps - just connect it to your iPad via the Camera Connection Kit.
Everything you need to start making music is taken care of as the LAUNCHKEY MINI MK2 comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, as well as 1GB of samples from Loopmasters.
