Novation Launchkey Mk II
Novation has announced an update to its popular Launchkey series of keyboard Midi controllers.

Novation has just announced a refresh of its Launchkey series of Midi keyboard controllers here at Musikmesse 2015. The new Novation Launchkey builds on the success of the original Launchkey, this time with velocity-sensitive, 16 colour RGB pads onboard. You get transport buttons and up to nine faders (the 25-key version only has one) and eight knobs for tweaking your mix within your DAW.

Available in 25, 49, and 61-key configurations, the updated Launchkey series is an excellent controller for budget-minded folk wanting to get into music production, as well as seasoned producers who want a keyboard and grid pad combo to take control of Ableton Live in the studio and onstage.
