  3. Clock output from the MIDI port can now be toggled on or off. This increases flexibility for users when connecting Launchkey Mini MK3 to other MIDI devices.
  4. Lastly, the shift, arp and fixed chord buttons can now be latched with double-tap. This enables handed control of shift-modified buttons — perfect for tweaking with one hand while playing with the other, or when simultaneously playing guitar or using a connected synth.
