Do you love the power and versatility of FL Studio but prefer a more hands-on approach? The Novation FLkey controller boasts seamless hardware integration with FL Studio’s powerful DAW architecture, yielding the best of both worlds. Each of the controller’s keys and 16 RGB-backlit pads boast velocity sensitivity to capture every nuance of your playing, while the eight assignable knobs and nine customizable faders allow for intuitive editing capabilities. Scale Mode and Chord Mode simplify rapid-fire chord/scale playing on one key — a feature that FL Studio fanatics at Music Experience find is incredibly powerful as performance and songwriting tools. Plus, direct access to your presets on the FLkey controller reduces your screen diving even further, offering quick switching of your different tones to inject some flair into your playing!

      Streamline your creative process

      Every facet of Novation’s FLkey controller is purpose-built to streamline your creative process in FL Studio, from the velocity-sensitive keys to the built-in plug-in browsing directly from your keyboard. As much as we love the immense power of modern software’s music-making tools at Music Experience, it’s hard to match the sheer versatility and immediacy of a physical keyboard, pads, faders, and knobs — the FLkey’s seamless integration into FL Studio’s architecture is sure to unlock your creative potential!

      Scale Mode for creative freedom

      One of the controller’s most exciting features is its onboard Scale Modes. We all use modes, whether we realize it or not. With the FLkey at your service, you can lay down a smokin’ Mixolydian bass line or rock out a sweet Dorian mode solo without getting bogged down in music theory. (Of course, knowing a little theory never hurt any musician!) Scale Modes transpose the keys you play into notes of the scale you’ve chosen. Just select your root note and the scale you want, and then play. No matter how accomplished a keyboardist you are, the FLkey will expand your musical vocabulary.

      Connect your external gear

      While the FLkey might be designed for use with FL Studio, it also offers a versatile control service for your external gear with a 5-pin MIDI DIN connection. Hardware synths and other devices are a perfect fit for the FLkey’s smooth key action and assignable controls, allowing you to facilitate everything from either your computer or a standalone setup.

With 61 semi-weighted keys, 16 velocity-sensitive pads, nine 45mm faders, eight customisable pots, and essential transport controls, FLkey 61 puts everything you need right where you need it – so you can stay in the groove.

        Stay in the groove

        Sequencer Mode maps FLkey 61’s pads to FL Studio’s step sequencer for programming beats fast. Use the pads to create or change new patterns directly from the pads on FLkey 61. Give your rhythms a real human feel and get off the grid with Two Pad mode: play straight into the Channel Rack or FPC, and trigger slices in SliceX. Need some crisp hi-hat rolls? Note Repeat makes it easy every single time.

        Mix, create and automate 

        Bring FL Studio’s volume and pan controls off the screen and into your hands – use the eight pots to tweak your mix and record automation on the fly. Essential transport buttons give you access to DAW functions in an instant. Browse presets in your Image-Line plugins to change up instruments and sounds fast, with no mouse needed.
