About this deal
Launchkey 61 also comes with a host of creative features that help take your ideas to the next level: Stay in key with Scale and Chord modes or find new melodic ideas with the arpeggiator and mutate your ideas into new forms.
Scale and Chord Modes: Boasting three chord modes, fixed, scale, and user, creatives can now trigger chords during recordings with one finger. Wherever you happen to be in the world, you can rely on a three-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault. Coupled with its immense standalone potential, Launchkey is now the centrepiece to your live or studio rig — computer or not. It's used for composing, producing, and performing music, offering versatility and expression in electronic music creation.Keep creativity going with one-touch access to Capture MIDI functionality in Ableton, Capture Recording functionality in Logic, and Retrospective MIDI Record functionality in Cubase. They include semi-weighted keyboards, MIDI ports and more traditional controller features (and complexity) such as keyboard splits and assignability but have only eight old-style drum pads. Create and play with feeling – Velocity-sensitive keyboard and 16 velocity-sensitive pads enable expressive and dynamic performance.
By following the simple instructions I was able to avoid the dreaded "attached accessory uses too much power” system message and although the iPad battery doesn't last quite as long as usual, it wasn't prohibitively draining. In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. No matter your genre or level of experience, Launchkey 61 gives you everything you need to create intuitively and expressively with Ableton Live. A powerful arpeggiator takes you to new melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic places, and Strum mode lets you hold down notes and strum chords to unlock more creative ideas. This doesn't happen in Pro Tools, you need to press shift and bank on the Novation, so even if you have highlighted track 9, the if you move track 2 fader, that will only move track 2, not 10!Scale, Chord and Arpeggiator features are all on board can be used standalone making it easy to perform the music you want to perform.
