Launchkey Mini

Launchkey Mini is our most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller. It may be small, but it gives you everything you need to create new tunes in Ableton Live without cluttering up your desk.


Easily Make Music

We designed Launchkey Mini to make it easy and fun to produce music in Ableton Live. All the controls work as soon as you plug it in, and they're arranged in the layout we think works best.
We put 16 pads along the top, which you can use to launch clips and play beats.

They light up to show you when clips are loaded, playing and recording and we laid them out to match your Ableton Live session view; one row to launch clips, and one row to stop them.

You can also easily tweak your instruments using eight high-quality knobs, and sketch out ideas on a 25-note mini keyboard with a fast synth-style action that makes it really nice to play

Novation's Launchkey Mini packs quite a punch and is clearly designed with the modern, trendy and constantly moving composer in mind.” // “ of the finest mobile instruments money can buy.”
