Good product and solid value
BlipBlop, 19.12.2020
No slim, short, mini, 30% scaled down keys; you got 37 standard sized keys to shred and lay down chords with USB and MIDI OUT.

Good synth action and sensitivity, not too noisy, wheels with good grip and decently spaced rotary pots.

Pads are colorful but they aren't going to flash while you play, even when they are close to your computer monitor.

Arpeggiator, chords and scale mode are fun but I still have to dig them.

I needed lightweight a 3 octaves keyboard to hook to computer via USB and synth rack via MIDI when the 88 keys are not needed. So far I am really happy with the Novation Launchkey 37 MK3, great playability and no fluff.

It's class compliant so you don't need any software unless you want it deeply integrated with your DAW; arpeggiator, chords and scale work without any software.

Installing the free software for my DAW (Logic Pro X) transport buttons, track selections and pots are automagically working.

The bundled software is first class (Ableton, Softube, ...) if you need it.

If you need 37 standard sized keys with synth action, get this, you will get a number of extra features attached for more joy.

Thanks!

Great Live and Logic integration!
Arcadia, 10.08.2020
Was happy to see it works so well not only with Live, but also with Logic. Feels well made, though the keys were not as much to my liking as my previous Arturia KeyLab. The 37-note really is the perfect fit for a crowded desktop. Only thing that trips me up is the state of the pads (depending on color). Guess my muscle memory hasn't yet kicked in but I'm sure it will. Well done Novation!

Mein Preis Leistungs Sieger
Michaahab, 13.10.2020
Erster Eindruck:
Zunächst hat das Launchkey 37 MK3 die perfekte Größe. Die dritte Oktave extra im Vergleich zu 25 Tasten Keyboars ist ein echter Gewinn, trotzdem passt es super auf meinen leicht überladenen Schreibtisch. Es ist aus solidem Kuststoff und fühlt sich durchweg
hochwertig an. Die Integration in Ableton ging automatisch.
Die Mehrfarbigen Leuchtpads sehen nicht nur im Vegas Modus schick aus, sondern helfen dabei z.B. die Funktionen des Arpeggiators übersichtlich darzustellen.
Bedienung:
Die Bedienung ist auch ohne Handbuch gößtenteils selbsterklärend.
Der Apreggiator hat (nicht nur) die gängigen Funktionen (Up/Down etc.), die wahlweise über den Shift Button + gelabelter Taste oder über die Arp-Lock Funtion angewählt werden können . Bei letzterem können alle Funktionen über die Pads gesteuert werden, die sich dabei farblich dem jeweiligen Menü anpassen, sehr praktisch.
Besonders interessant ist der Deviate Mode, bei dem mittels Mutate Knob die Tonfolge des Arp?s und mittels Deviate der Abstand der Töne variieren lässt. Damit kann man sich inspirieren lassen oder sich einfach austoben. Der Scale Mode ist praktisch um automatisch im korrekten Key zu spielen.

Die gute Einbindung in Ableton ist wirklich super. Funktionen wie z.B. Plugin Parameter steuern zu können ist zwar schön, da die Parameter allerdings erst im Display angezeigt werden, wenn man einen Knopf dreht, muss man sich diese schon gut merken oder Zeit für Try and Error haben. Ich benutze dafür jedenfalls weiter die Maus.
Die Transportfunktionen, das Aktivieren oder Stoppen einer Aufnahme sowie das Solo oder Mute schalten über die Pads sind hilfreich.
Mein Fazit:
Wer ein Midi Controller Keyboard sucht ohne alle Oktaven gleichzeitig spielen zu können ist mit dem Launchkey mk3 sicher gut beraten, insbesondere zu Integration in Ableton. Meines Erachtens das beste Preis- Leistungs-Verhältnis für (Ableton) Midi Controller Keyboards.
