Novation recently announced the new Launchkey MK3 series! With so many great keyboard options these days, fans of Novation have been patiently awaiting an update on the famous Launchkey Series. In this article, we'll highlight some of our favorite updates to the lineup.
The Launchkey MK3 comes in the standard 25, 49 and 61. Novation also decided to add a 37-key as well. This is a really attractive option for people who need more than 25 keys, but don't have enough room for 49.
The new keyboards also come equipped with a 2x16 char screen that displays the function of the encoders and faders that you are currently using.
There is a new arpeggiator mode that has 7 playback types including chord and generative mutate. Mutate is a function that changes the notes in the chord and makes melodies on it's own! The Arp Mode also has different rhythmic control options to add some differentiation and spice things up for performances.
The new Launchkey MK3 has a fully customizable MIDI map using Novation Components. Many users will also be very happy to know that the new keyboards also have a full size MIDI port, making it easy to control hardware synth.
Novation has always had a great software offering. Somehow, they were able to even improve that. These new Launchkeys not only have the tightest integration with Ableton Live of any other controller, but they also include the following software:
Ableton Live Lite
Serato Sample LE
Splice Sounds (2 month membership)
Spitfire Audio LABS - Expressive Strings
XLN Audio Addictive Keys
Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette
