Novation Launchkey Mini – No Longer Available

Produce and perform, at home or on stage
MFR# AMS-LAUNCHKEY-MINI-MK2

Product Description

The Novation Launchkey Mini is an exciting new compact mini-key instrument/controller featuring 16 velocity sensitive, three color illuminated launch pads - use them to launch loops, sounds, effects, transport controls, and more.

Launchkey Mini also features a 25-note keyboard, eight assignable rotary controls, seven function buttons, and a further two performance buttons. Compact and portable, Launchkey Mini is great for producing and performing at home or on stage.

Launchkey Mini works immediately with the new free-to-download Novation Launchpad and Launchkey iPad apps, and gives you hands-on control of major Mac and Windows based music software including Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Cubase, Reason, and Logic.

Keyboard and launchpad controller for iPad and computer

The latest in the growing family of Novation “Launch” products, Launchkey Mini is an instantly-accessible mini keyboard and launch pad controller for a wide range of software apps on iPad or computer. It’s a keyboard/DAW controller with 26 assignable controls, offering fuss-free hands-on control of major music software via Novation’s intuitive “InControl” technology. The 16 launch pads are velocity-sensitive – use them to play drum sounds and samples expressively, as well as launch clips and scenes in Ableton Live. Ableton Live Lite is included in the package, along with an extensive Loopmasters sample pack and other software packages.

Powerful iPad Apps - free

Launchkey Mini comes with a duo of powerful apps for iPad, which transform it into a true production and performance instrument. Use the Launchpad app with Launchkey Mini on your iPad to trigger the included professional sample library and control effects, letting you produce and perform music straight away. Load in new sound packs and import your own samples for an even more unique performance – then share your creation with a growing fan base. Launchkey Mini connects directly to your iPad with the Apple Camera Connection Kit (not included) and it’s powered by the iPad – so there's no need for batteries or an additional power supply.

The Launchkey app for iPad is a synth filled with Novation technology, allowing you to control notes with the Launchkey Mini's keyboard while warping the sound with the knobs or via intuitive multi touch control on the iPad's screen. The Launchkey and Launchpad apps sync together perfectly for simultaneous use – set an arpeggiator on the Launchkey app and switch to the Launchpad app to build the beats behind it, for example – and both apps are fully Audiobus compatible. Launchkey Mini also integrates with the included V-Station and Bass Station soft synths for Mac and Windows.

Synth plug-ins and loops

As well as the Launchkey and Launchpad iPad apps and Ableton Live Lite, Launchkey Mini comes with software versions of Novation’s classic analogue synths, the Bass Station and the V-Station. You can use these as plug-ins within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs. There's also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers – Loopmasters. Get started straight away with over one gigabyte of loops including drums, FX and artist content.

  • Ultra-portable 25 note Mini-keyboard controller
  • 16 three color, velocity sensitive launch pads for triggering loops and playing drums
  • Turn your iPad into a performance instrument

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
