The Mini Keyboard for Ableton Live

Launchkey Mini is Novation's 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

Novation 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.

They 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 Novation 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.

Get Started Immediately

Launchkey Mini integrates immediately with Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase and Logic without any mapping whatsoever. It also comes with everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, and 1GB of samples from Loopmasters.

Take It Anywhere

Launchkey Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can use it anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class compliant and bus-powered via USB.
