Novation Launches the Launchkey Mini MK3

Novation has launched the new Launchkey Mini. Now you can make tracks anywhere using Launchkey Mini’s new arpeggiator, Fixed Chord mode, Capture MIDI, 16 big RGB pads, transport controls and more.

Featuring a mini-key mech, all-new pitch and modulation touch strips, a sustain pedal input, and 16 newly RGB-backlit pads, you can use Launchkey Mini for color-matched clip launching. The new Fixed Chord mode and arpeggiator help you take your melodic and harmonic ideas in new directions, enabling chords to be triggered from single notes, and turning held chords into riffs, melodies and sequences on the fly; and thanks to the Capture MIDI button, you’ll never lose a note, even if you forget to hit record.

Launchkey Mini’s device control and integration with Live lets you step back from the screen. Start and stop playback and recording via the dedicated transport buttons, operate the mixer’s Mute, Solo, Volume, Pan and Send controls, and take instant control of Device Macros with eight rotary encoders.

Launchkey Mini includes sounds, virtual instruments and plug-in effects from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand, plus membership of Novation Sound Collective, bringing you new free content from their plug-in partners every couple of months. It also has a MIDI out port for connection to hardware synths and grooveboxes; and if Live isn’t your only production environment, mapping templates are included.

It’s available now through Novation stockists and direct from the Novation eStore* (*where applicable).
