The Novation Launchkey 49 (MK2) is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music using Ableton Live. Just plug the Launchkey in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and velocity-sensitive RGB pads give you immediate hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer.
