Sculpt your sound to perfection

You’ll find the 25-note synth-action keybed delightful to play. Of course, it’s velocity-sensitive so you can perform your parts expressively.
Designed for Ableton, works with any DAW
Many musicians use Abelton and love the streamlined workflow they get from Novation’s Launchkey controllers. That’s because Novation designed the Launchkey’s controls to integrate immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live. All the controls are completely assignable, however. And if you do use another major DAW, the Launchkey 25 will instantly map to it via Novation’s InControl protocol.
