Seamless Integration with Ableton Live

Novation LaunchKey 25 MK2 is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. You just plug in via USB and the keys, knobs and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer. Launch clips, control FX, play beats and much more using 16 pads laid out in two rows of eight, to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. Full colour RGB LEDs mean they'll match the colour of your clips too, while velocity-sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats.

Versatile and Intuitive Layout

LaunchKey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like, using eight rock solid rotary knobs to tweak your instruments and effects. The 25-note synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances. All the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. Of course, if you do not use Ableton, it will map to other major music software using InControl.

Rugged and Durable Construction

LaunchKey 25 is tough enough to take and use anywhere. Fully class compliant and bus-powered via USB, LaunchKey is ready to use the moment you plug it into your laptop, with no need for any drivers or power cables.

Make Music Immediately

The controller comes with Ableton Live Lite music making software, 4GB of Loopmasters samples, and Bass Station and V Station plug-in synthesisers. It's class compliant and doesn't need any drivers: you just install the software, plug it in and start performing. Also included is your choice of one of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments. This gives you the choice of Modern Upright, Studio Grand, Electric Grand and Mark One piano VSTs.

Free Melodics Lessons

The Novation LaunchKey 25 MK2 comes complete with 60 free Melodics lessons. Melodics is a desktop app designed to teach you how play MIDI keyboards, pad controllers and drums. Each lesson in Melodics is broken down into simple steps, adding another layer and working your way up to complete a full track.

The lessons span different genres from classical and new jack swing to grime and dancehall. Melodics is perfect for building your skill set using the LaunchKey 25 MK2.
