Love it, worth the price
Reiwaa, 27.04.2020
I bought the launchkey in December as I entered my first steps in music production. A lot of friends advised me not to buy it, but I was so in love with it that I had to give it a try.

DAW COMPATIBILITY:
Ableton is the mother of the Launchkey. Their connection is perfectly matched and allows to easily create beats, both live or recording.

Logic has a specific hardware to download and it works fine. A bit confusing, but still remains a good controller to use while mixing and recording.

Material and Handling:
It is definitely PLASTIC. A well made one, but plastic. You only notice when you play chords. The keys is very tight and short and it is okay to produce some basic line but if you need a piano arrangement, even an easy one, it it impossible to play. That's why I will buy a bigger midi keyboard.

FEATURES:
Built-in features are amazing. Pitch, Modulation, transpose, arpeggiator and so on. Have a look online to know more. They perfectly work apart from the modulation pad which not always recognize the finger sliding on the pad.

BUNDLE:
Novation offered me a splice subscription for 2 months, several sound packages (native instruments and so on) and Ableton live lite (maximum of 8 tracks)/

To Buy or not to buy?
Well, if you are starting producing or have always dreamt of electronic live performance but got confused by launchpad, BUY IT.

It is so cheap with so many features.

Then you can upgrade, but this is the perfect start.

Super Midi controller
Paaf, 26.06.2020
This is the first midi controller I have ever bought. I hesitate it a lot with the Akai or the Novation Launchkey Mini Mk3 and all I can say is that I am super happy with it.
The arpeggiator is great, it is light and compact so you can take it anywhere. I wish there was a way to create a custom pattern for the arpeggiator but this can always be done in your DAW.
The pads are very nice and I like the fact that tey are velocity sensitive.
It eases the workflow on Ableton. I never used it in live mode but I'm sure it is very good.
The ability to customize the pads and the knobs is also great.
I like the touch bars on the side for the pitch and modulation which are great.

The chord functionality is also great. I wish there was a way to play chords in scale instead of having them only in major or minor.

I can only recommend it, after using it, I would say that it looks like one of the best on the market. It is a safe purchase.

Damian.S, 28.04.2020
utility: music production
It's my first midi and i'm proud of the choice. Very easy to use, the velocity is very responsive and same thing the pads - really unexpectedly responsive. The keyboard comes with an arpegiator and fixed chords very useful (I tested in more programs and it works), but it makes the best job on ableton live, which comes in "pack" with keyboard and more plugins.
I'm very satisfied of this aquisition!

My new best friend
sudoma, 26.01.2020
I've started to use this keyboard to create demo projects and working outside my home studio instead of my NLM MK2.

Pros:
It's prety solid made piece of gear have a lot of controls features, coming with the rich software bundle and easily fit in my backpack. Built in arpeggiator is the total fun:)
Pads are sensitive and wery responsive.
Modulation and pitch shift slides is a good addition, compare to the previous model.
Sustain pedal input. I prefer to use my pedal as a stop/start recording button. Very useful.
MIDI TRS. Didn't tried this before, but it's great addition for small controller like this.

Cons:
The keyboard itself is not very comfortable to play. The keys are hard to push.
Knobs are too small and sometimes they are backlashing.

Overall, its great controller for this price. Light, usefull, a lot of fun.
