Novation MK2 overview

  • 1Description

The Novation Launchkey MK2 49-Key Controller is a USB MIDI controller that features pre-mapped control for many popular DAWs. It also has 16 velocity-sensitive, RGB backlit trigger pads that can be used to launch loops, samples and more. The Launchkey is USB bus powered and is compatible with Macs, PCs, and iPads.

In addition to the RGB launch pads, it has eight knobs, a pitchwheel and modulation wheel, dedicated transport control, and nine sliders. It makes use of Novation's pre-mapped templates that allow for automatic control of popular DAWs such as Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Logic and others.

The package also includes a software suite that includes Ableton Live Lite, a 4GB Loopmasters sample library that includes royalty-free loops and one-shots, plus three fully multi-sampled Simpler-based instruments for Ableton Live 9 (Piano, Rhodes, Hammond Organ), as well as software versions of Novation's classic analog synths, the Bass Station and the V-Station.

You can also download the free Launchkey and Launchpad apps for producing and performing with the Launchkey in tandem with your iPad.

    Novation MK2 reviews

    Launchkey MK2 49-Key Controller is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality At An Affordable Price I bought this for my son who is getting into digital music. He has FL Studio and this is a perfect controller for it. Start up was a little bit shaky because of the lack of instructions, but thanks to one of his friends who makes some pretty cool dubstep he was able to set it up and get some great sounds. His friend is a little jealous too! The key action is smooth as well as the faders and knobs. The pads are small but give you plenty of options. I chose the Novation over the Samson Graphite 49 and think I made the right choice. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy for the price Love the keys and the handling is smooth. With seamless integration with Ableton live, I couldn't ask for a better midi controller than the Novation Launchkey MK2 49

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard for the money Easy to set up on my Mac. Well built. Has a nice heft to it. Buttons feel sturdy and we'll built.
