The Novation Launchkey Mini MK2 is our most compact and
portable MIDI keyboard controller. It may be small, but it gives
you everything you need to create new tunes in Ableton Live without

music in Ableton Live. All the controls work as soon as you plug it
in, and they're arranged in the layout we think works best.

Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase and Logic without any mapping
whatsoever. It also comes with everything you need to start making
music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and
V-Station virtual instruments, and 1GB of samples from
