    Launchkey Mini gives you seamless hands-on control of Ableton Live, helping you turn the music in your head into sonic reality. 16 RGB pads match the colours of clips in Live’s Session View, making clip and scene selection and launching totally intuitive, while eight rotary encoders put Live’s Device Macro controls right at your fingertips. And with mapping templates included for Logic Pro and Reason, not to mention full HUI support for Pro Tools and other DAWs, Launchkey Mini is geared up for all the other major DAWs, too.

    Get creative
    Step away from the computer and power up your creativity using the new Launchkey Mini’s fully featured Arpeggiator with Advanced MIDI Control. Perform and record beats and percussion lines with the big RGB pads, and trigger chords from single keys with Fixed Chord Mode. And thanks to Live’s Capture MIDI function, accessible direct from Launchkey Mini, everything you play is recorded in the background at all times, ensuring you’ll never lose a single note, even when you forget to hit record.

    Take control immediately
    With the addition of transport, Mute and Solo buttons, and Volume, Pan and Send controls, the new Launchkey Mini feels more like a physical extension of Live than ever. Now you can connect more deeply with your music, navigating and mixing your projects in a more tactile way than the mouse and keyboard can hope to match.

    So much power in such a small package. With its tiny footprint and slim profile, the USB bus-powered Launchkey Mini is made to move – just sling it in your bag and make music wherever life and inspiration take you.
