Launchkey is a controller for all major music software, giving you hands-on control of your mixer, transport and more in Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Logic and Cubase. With 9 faders, 9 buttons, 8 rotary knobs and transport controls, nothing comes close to Launchkey for sheer controllability. 16 multi-color backlit velocity-sensitive launch pads can be used to play drums and trigger loops without being near a computer, perfect for sketching out beats or playing in drum patterns, or triggering clips and scenes in Ableton Live. The velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard mechanism is accompanied by pitch and mod wheels and octave, track up/down buttons. It recreates the feel of classic synth keyboards with precision, so playing styles can be reflected by the software as accurately as possible.

The Novation Launchpad is a music performance app for iPad that will have you making beats and triggering loops instantly. It's packed full of high quality loops and sounds that can be combined in the multi-color 8x6 Launchpad grid to make and remix music. The built-in time stretching always keeps you locked in to the beat, so your loops don't go out of time. 8 volume sliders allow quick volume changes and FX modes offer DJ effects such as beat-repeaters and synced filter effects, creating interesting ways to remix your music and make your performance unique. The app follows some of the key features from the amazing 'Launchpad' hardware, now used by many of the worlds famous DJs and performers, but strips out much of the complexity.
The Launchpad app, along with the Launchkey app can transform your Launchkey hardware into a synth and loop triggering workstation for performing and producing music with your iPad. The launch pads on the hardware trigger loops in the app and you can get hands-on control of levels with Launchkey's physical faders.
