Novation’s Launchkey range adds 88-key Edition


Novation thinks big and launches its first ever 88-note MIDI controller keyboard


Launchkey 88 lands with the company’s best-feeling key mechanism to date.


The new Launchkey 88 is the first piano-sized controller that Novation has ever launched. The entire Launchkey range has deep integration with Ableton and this new model takes the best features of the smaller Launchkeys (Mini, 25, 37, 49 and 61) and marries them to a “premium” semi-weighted keyboard that sets it apart from the rest of the range. In fact, Launchkey 88 promises Novation’s best-feeling key mechanism to date, which is said to be the result of meticulous refinement and testing.


Launchkey 88’s connectivity makes for dynamic live performances when controlling external synths and hardware.



Other features include 16 velocity-sensitive pads, an arpeggiator, a Scale mode (to keep your playing in key) and three Chord modes that enable you to trigger complex chords with a single finger.


In addition, Launchkey 88 promises deep integration with Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Cubase and more allows creators to work uninterrupted, and essential mixer, transport and navigation controls aid in easy music making for all other major DAWs, including Studio One, Pro Tools and Reaper, via the HUI protocol.




The included software bundle comprises Ableton Live Lite 11, virtual instruments, plugins and sample packs – musicians can start creating immediately.




Novation Launchkey 88 is available now and is priced at £379.99 (Inc. VAT) / €369.74 (Ex. VAT) / $399.99.
