Nice quality, non-motorised knobs pointless.
kerochan, 09.12.2020
This is just an update on the Launchkey 61 I have recently bought to use with Logic.

The keyboard looks and feels great, all works fine, the knobs and faders feel excellent.
However, I have reverted to only using the midi keyboard, not the knobs and faders.

These are mapped to Logics Pans and volumes, and work great BUT, if you open up say a recent project after working on another project, then you need to line up all the faders and knobs to match the on screen ones, as they are not motorised, a real hassle!
Also if you highlight say track 9 to work in, then that becomes the start of the new bank of 8 tracks for the faders, and you might wanna physically turn up track 2, but the fader will turn up track 10!
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!
Which makes it better to work with Pro Tools.

BUT at the end of the day, working with all the knobs and faders turned down/off on the Novation and using the Magic trackpad, is much easier!, the Novation keyboard is great through.
Theres a lot to be said for motorised faders! but even then I am sure I would just end up using the magic trackpad!,
of course you can use the play, record mute/solo buttons on the Novation, but even then using the trackpad and computer keyboard is easier, and I don't wanna start forgetting computer keyboard shortcuts.

But if anyone is thinking of getting the Launchkey, its very nice!

Novation Launchkey 61 MK3
Arthur F., 10.12.2020
Das Produkt ist sehr einfach zu bedienen und alles läuft auf Anhieb.
Auch toll sind die zusätzlichen Plugins oder auch Programme die im Paket enthalten sind.

Reinstecken und loslegen. Das Menü im Keyboard selbst hat man nach 5 Minuten verstanden.

Nette Features: Eigene Akkorde speichern und spielen. Und auch ein Filter damit man immer im richtigen Akkord bleibt.

Der Appregator ist auch nett.

Die Fader und Drehregeler sind richtig gut verarbeitet.
Pitchwheel und Modulation Wheeel sind auch gut.
Die DrumPads sind sehr angenehm weich und reagieren auf mittelharte bis harte stöße. Auf ganz leichte und schwache anschläge reagiert es nur schwer. Gemeint ist die Midi Velocity: etwa ab 40 gehts los.

Kleines Manko: die Tastatur ist halt typisches normales Keyboard. Also hohle Plastik tasten die aber sich dennoch gut anfühlen. Sind auch Anschlagdynamisch.

Für Synthesizer ist es gut. Also für Studio zwecke gut geeignet.

Wer eher Klavier Plugins oder sowas spielen will sollte was anderes suchen.

Kurz gesagt: Ich empfehle es sehr wenn man nicht mehr Geld ausgeben will. Besser geht immer ist klar. Aber hier passt es.

Je cherchais un clavier maître relativement complet
Pour le prix le toucher est un très bon toucher type synthé , j'ai retrouvé de bonnes sensations sur des banques sons d'orchestres sur Kontakt
le clavier est un régal avec la V collection par exemple , l'arpegiateur est un vrai plus , le mode scale aussi , l'ensemble est très facilement paramétrable , le design est top un des meilleurs dans cette gamme de prix
