Works beautifully with your DAW
Designed to be used with your laptop. The LaunchKey Mini integrates perfectly with your DAW. Allowing you to control multiple aspects of your project with a twist of a dial or the slide of a fader. Focused on Ableton Live, the 16 pads match the colours of clips in Live’s session view making it easier than ever to select scenes. Controlling device macros is incredibly easy with the LaunchKey too, allowing intuitive control over your digital musical space. Whilst the focus is placed on Ableton users, mapping templates have been included for Logic Pro and Reason, as well as HUI support for Pro Tools and most other DAWs.
Helping you spend less time clicking with your mouse and more time getting down to business. The LaunchKey allows you to power up your creativity. The full arpeggiator with advanced MIDI control gives you new angles to make music. You can perform and record beats and percussion lines with chunky RBG pads and trigger chords from single keys with fixed chord mode.
There are, of course, a range of transport controls. With mute, solo, volume, pan and send controls. Meaning you have full control over your parameters. The LaunchKey feels just like a physical extension of Live more than ever. Helping you reconnect with your music-making.
