Novation Launchkey Mini Mk3 Product Description

Novation Launchkey Mini Mk3 is a compact and portable keyboard controller with trigger pads, rotary encoders and touch strips for pitch and modulation.

It features an on-board arpeggiator and many other controls to work seamlessly with Ableton Live and other major DAWS. 

Made to move. Launchkey Mini is Novation's most compact and portable 25-mini-key MIDI keyboard controller. It gives you everything you need to start creating in Ableton Live – and it’ll fit in your bag. Make tracks anywhere with Launchkey Mini’s deep, intuitive Ableton control, arpeggiator, fixed chord mode, MIDI out, and tons of sounds in the box.

Create new melodies, rhythms and sounds with Launchkey Mini’s easy yet powerful arpeggiator. Take ideas further with a customisable fixed chord shape that follows you up the keyboard in Fixed Chord mode. Add dynamic, expressive rhythms with 16 super-sensitive pads for drumming and clip launch. 

Transport, device and mixer controls mean fewer mouse clicks. Device macros and mixer controls mean more hands-on control of your music. Sounds, instruments and effects from AAS, Softube, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand mean you have everything you need to get started. Throw all this content into the included copy of Ableton Live Lite, or use Launchkey Mini’s integrations with Logic, Reason or any HUI compatible DAW.

You’ll also benefit from a two-year warranty, award-winning customer support and membership of their Sound Collective - offering new, free content every few months.


• Deep and intuitive Ableton Live control - including device macro control, track select, record, capture MIDI, clip and scene launch, stop/mute/solo, volume, pans and sends.

• 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. 

• MIDI Out – take Launchkey Mini anywhere, send arps and program changes to your hardware synths, or add keys to your groovebox directly over MIDI.

• Hardware - Novation's finest mini keymech to date, 16 velocity-sensitive RGB, eight rotary controls, pitch and mod touch strips, and sustain input.

Included software:

• Ableton Live Lite music making software

• AAS Session Bundle

• Softube Time and Tone Bundle

Audio Damage Dubstation 2


Novation gifts Sound Collective members Audio Damage Dubstation 2 bucket brigade delay plug-in


From October 8 to December 10 2020, members of Novation’s Sound Collective community can download Audio Damage’s hugely acclaimed Dubstation 2 delay plug-in (worth $49) for free, and get a 35% discount on any instrument or effect plug-in in the Audio Damage store.


Modelling a vintage bucket brigade delay unit, Dubstation 2 centres on two independent delay lines, each with its own time setting and an optional ping-pong mode for complex, cross-fed stereo echoes. An LFO modulates the delay time, extending the plug-in’s remit into chorusing and classic analogue-style pitch modulation, and Reverse and Loop functions let you flip and perpetually cycle the delay buffer, respectively. The characteristic warm distortion for which BBD devices are known and loved is brought to bear by the Input Drive and Saturation knobs; and high- and low-cut filters are also onboard for broad-strokes frequency-shaping and live manipulation of the feedback circuit.


A bona fide modern classic, Dubstation 2 is a powerhouse dual delay for production, sound design and live performance, with a rich, old-school sound and endless creative potential.


During the same period, Sound Collective members can also take advantage of a 35% discount on any plug-in instrument or effect in the Audio Damage store, including the Continua and Quanta synths, Enso looper, Discord 4 pitchshifter, QuatroMod modulation effect and many more.


Key Features


  • Accurate bucket brigade delay emulation
  • Single mono or independent dual stereo delay lines with feedback circuit
  • Up to 2000ms delay time, synced or unsynced
  • Ping-Pong mode for cross-feedback effects
  • LFO delay time modulation for chorus, pitching effects and more
  • Input Drive and Saturation controls for distortion
  • High Cut and Low Cut filters
  • Reverse and Loop functions
  • Stereo Width and dry/wet Mix controls


Sound Collective is a community hub that brings you, Novation and the most innovative software brands together. If you want to find great virtual instruments and effects, keeping up to date with the constant stream of new releases is essential, and Sound Collective makes it easy, with regular free software downloads and generous discounts on high-end plug-ins.

Novation mini mk3
Love this little beauty, small, compact but packs a punch. The ARP is outstanding especially the Mutate and Deviate function. Great control of Ableton too. Very easy to use. If you want to connect to a midi device you will need to purchase a midi trs cable as well. Great little space saving controller.
