Item Description:
Take control of any music setup with Launchkey 37, Novation’s inspirational MIDI controller keyboard. Create and play with Ableton Live and connect external MIDI gear. Scale and Chord Modes expand your musical vocabulary, velocity-sensitive pads and keys.

Made to Create

Launchkey is our intuitive and fully integrated MIDI keyboard controller for making tracks in Ableton Live and with your external equipment. The Launchkey experience is designed for players of all types and abilities. With Launchkey, regardless of experience, you can create and play your music like never before. With its various musical creation features, all of which can be used standalone, Launchkey removes barriers to creativity, and expands the musical vocabulary of even the most talented keyboardists. 

Product Features:

Designed for Ableton Live
Immediate access to all the controls you need. 

Create and play with feeling
Velocity-sensitive keyboard and 16 velocity-sensitive pads enable expressive and dynamic performance. 

Get creative with chords
Three chord modes (fixed, scale and user) let you trigger chords with one finger. 

Never hit a wrong note
Scale modes transpose keys and pads to notes in the selected scale. 

Capture MIDI
One-touch access to Ableton Live's Capture MIDI feature means you'll never lose an idea.

Get melodies moving
Powerful arpeggiator takes you to new melodic, harmonic and rhythmic places. 

Control anything MIDI
Five-pin MIDI output works with any MIDI-compatible device. 

Easy-to-read screen
16x2 character screen lets you easily see the state of what you're controlling or selecting. 

Choose from four model sizes
25-, 37-, 49- and 61-key variants let you pick the perfect controller for your setup. 

Make music immediately
Free software, including Ableton Live 10 Lite, virtual instruments, plugins and sample packs let you start creating straight away. 

Shape your sound
Tweak instruments and effects to perfection using eight rotary encoders and (on 49- and 61-key models) nine 45mm faders. 

Make Launchkey your own
Four Custom Modes enable you to create unique control setups for any performance or studio rig, using Novation Components.

Eight Scale modes guide you into new musical territory, by transposing keys played to notes in the scale selected. Simply choose your root note and your preferred scale, then play. Three Chord modes transform the keys and pads into an interactive surface of musical exploration, where every note played is tonally and harmonically linked. The arpeggiator lets you explore new melodies and find ideas quickly, while the mutate function reconstructs your patterns into exciting new forms. 

Custom Modes simplify the relationship between controller and software, with more power than ever in your hands. Programmable using the Novation Components browser-based tool, Custom Modes let you design the behaviour of your Launchkey, with control over control assignments, MIDI routing, pad colour and much more. 

Launchkey 37 [MK3] is equipped with a full-size five-pin MIDI DIN output, enabling simple connection to the universe of MIDI devices — new and old. Coupled with its immense standalone potential, Launchkey is now the centrepiece to your live or studio rig — computer or not. 

The Launchkey platform has always been about flexibility, and the MK3 revision carries this mantra at its core. Larger, improved velocity-sensitive pads provide greater control over dynamics, and eight fixed rotary knobs bring your software to life at your fingertips. The integration with Ableton Live is truly seamless, with a dedicated button for activating the Capture MIDI function, plus track arm, quantise, click and loop controls, for flying around your Session faster than ever.  

Not an Ableton Live user? No problem, Launchkey also has full integration with Logic and Reason, plus out of the box functionality with other DAWs including Studio One, Cubase and Pro Tools, via HUI. 

Whether starting out or locked in a groove, Launchkey is the controller keyboard to take you further on your musical journey. With a collection of software instruments, including Ableton Live 10 Lite, Serato Sample LE, Spitfire Audio LABS Expressive Strings, XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette, AAS Session Bundle, a two-month Splice Sounds membership and the Novation Sound Collective, Launchkey 37 equips you with an amazing bundle of sounds.
