Launchkey, the fully-featured DAW control surface has over 50 hardware controls, with the 16 dual-colour, backlit Launch Pads able to be used to play drums and trigger loops.

Novation's powerful integrated instrument gives you more hands-on control than any other device in its class. The ideal partner for DAW, standard MIDI control gives you instant control of track volumes, panning, sends and more with the InControl software integration system.

The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad. Included with Launchkey comes the Launchkey performance synth app and Launchpad app, also available seperately from the app store. The Launchpad app provides drag-and-drop loop playback from the pads and real-time effects.

Launchkey also includes a suite of software for both Mac and PC users including Novation's V-Station and Bass Station soft-synth plugins and Ableton Live Lite. Launch clips and scenes in Ableton Live with the velocity-sensitive launch pads.

Novation will be showing their next generation keyboard controllers at The NAMM Show.
