Seamless Integration with Ableton Live
LaunchKey Mini has been designed to make it easy and fun to produce electronic music. All the controls work as soon as you plug it in and are arranged to make the most sense in Ableton Live. 16 velocity-sensitive pads let you launch clips and play beats.
They light up to show you when clips are loaded, playing and recorded and are laid out to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them. The LaunchKey Mini MK2 is also fully compatible with other DAWs including automatic control for FL Studio.
Compact With Comprehensive Controls
The LaunchKey Mini MK2 features a 25-note velocity-sensitive keybed provide natural and fluid playability. The fast synth-style keys are ideal for creating melodies, creating percussive loops and everything in between.
You can tweak the sounds of yoru instruments and effect or freely reassign using eight high-quality knobs. The multi-coloured velocity-sensitive pads adds another way to interact with your sounds. They act such as drum machine pads that can be used to create drum loops, play melodies, trigger samples and more. This also makes the LaunchKey ideal for live performances as well as studio work.
