Novation Introduces Lauchkey MK3 Range

Totally revamped keyboard controllers are 'Made To Create'

Novation’s Launchkey range of keyboard controllers has for many years been the best choice for music makers at all stages of the music-making journey. With the release of the Launchkey [MK3] range, Novation continues the Launchkey legacy with four feature-packed controllers that give music makers everything they need to make tracks in Ableton Live and with their hardware. Launchkey [MK3] controllers come in four model sizes, and pack in more inspirational music-making features, more expressive pads and keys, and deeper Ableton Live integration than ever before. The 37-key model is completely new to the Launchkey family, and stands alone as the most comprehensive controller of its size with full-size keys on the market.

With Launchkey, regardless of experience, users can create and play their music like never before. With Scale, Chord and Arpeggiator features,all of which can be used standalone,Launchkey removes barriers to creativity, and expands the musical vocabularyof even the most talented keyboardists.

Launchkey MK3 controllers are available in 25-, 37-, 49-and 61-key variants, making it easier than ever for creators to pick the size that suits. For the first time in the Launchkey range, there isa 37-key model, which answers the requests of music makers who want a compact controller large enough for two-handed keys work.
