Novation today announced their new LaunchKey keyboard controller. It comes in 25, 49 or 61 note versions with up to 50 physical controls that include the characteristic 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colored trigger pads that can launch clips and scenes in Ableton Live.
Intriguing is the interactive way the controllers can work with two new included iPad apps called LaunchKey App and LaunchPad App that include synth sounds and high quality loops to start creating music instantly. Also included are the Novation V-Station and Bass Station Mac and PC plugins to fulfil all your sound tweaking desires. The In-Control technology allows you to quickly connect the hardware to all major DAWs like Pro Tools, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Cubase and Logic.
