With the new Launchkey Mini, Novation have made their hugely popular 25-mini-key portable MIDI keyboard controller for Ableton Live more versatile, adaptable and playable than ever. Now you can make tracks anywhere using Launchkey Mini's new arpeggiator, Fixed Chord mode, Capture MIDI, 16 big RGB pads, transport controls and more.
Featuring their best, most responsive mini-keymech to date, all-new pitch and modulation touchstrips, a sustain pedal input, and 16 newly RGB-backlit pads, Launchkey Mini is the perfect platform for expressive performance and colour-matched clip launching. The new Fixed Chord mode and arpeggiator help you take your melodic and harmonic ideas in new creative directions, enabling chords to be triggered from single notes, and turning held chords into riffs, melodies and sequences on the fly; and thanks to the Capture MIDI button, you'll never lose a note, even if you forget to hit record.
Spend less time clicking mouse buttons and more time making music, as Launchkey Mini's device control and deep, intuitive integration with Live lets you step back from the screen and feel the beats. Start and stop playback and recording via the dedicated transport buttons, operate the mixer's Mute, Solo, Volume, Pan and Send controls, and take instant control of Device Macros with eight rotary encoders - connect more deeply with your music, navigating and mixing your projects in a more tactile way than the mouse and keyboard can hope to match.
Launchkey Mini comes with everything you need to make complete tracks in the box, including sounds, virtual instruments and plug-in effects from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand, plus membership of Novation Sound Collective, bringing you new free content from our plug-in partners every couple of months. It also has a MIDI out port for connection to hardware synths and grooveboxes; and if Live isn't your only production environment, included mapping templates make Launchkey Mini the ideal solution for on-the-go control of Logic, Cubase, Reason or any other HUI-compatible DAW, too.
Novation's most compact and portable MIDI keyboard controller, Launchkey Mini gives you everything you need to start creating in Ableton Live - and it'll fit in your bag. It's available now through Novation stockists and direct from the Novation eStore* (*where applicable).

• Creative arpeggiator – easy to use but deeply controllable: change rhythm, beat, pattern, octave, gate and more.
• Fixed chord mode – play a chord with one finger - assign a fixed chord shape to the keys and it’ll transpose as you move up and down the keyboard.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
