Take it from Music Experience, the Novation Launchkey Mini packs more functionality into less real estate than just about any other keyboard you can get your hands on. A set of 25 synth-action mini keys gives you two octaves to play with at a time, and you can use the 16 tri-color pads to trigger loops, launch samples, tap out drums, or even play instruments. The Launchkey Mini's controls integrate immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live. Use another major DAW? The Mini will instantly map to it via Novation's InControl protocol. And it works with Novation's iPad apps, too! Any way you use it, you've got a winner with the Novation Launchkey Mini.
Many Music Experience musicians use Abelton and love the streamlined workflow they get from Novation's Launchkey controllers. That's because Novation designed the Launchkey's controls to integrate immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live. All the controls are completely assignable, however. And if you do use another major DAW, the Launchkey Mini will instantly map to it via Novation's InControl protocol.

Launchkey Mini is our most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller. It may be small, but it gives you everything you need to create new tunes in Ableton Live without cluttering up your desk. Launchkey Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can use it anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class compliant and bus-powered via USB.
We designed Launchkey Mini to make it easy and fun to produce music in Ableton Live. All the controls work as soon as you plug it in, and they're arranged in the layout we think works best. We put 16 pads along the top, which you can use to launch clips and play beats. They light up to show you when clips are loaded, playing and recording and we laid them out to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. You can also easily tweak your instruments using eight high-quality knobs, and sketch out ideas on a 25-note mini keyboard with a fast synth-style action that makes it really nice to play.
Launchkey Mini integrates immediately with Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase and Logic without any mapping whatsoever. It also comes with everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 4GB of samples from Loopmasters.
Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. Although we designed Launchkey for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs take control of all other major music software too using InControl.
