The absolute best in the 100 bucks pricetag
suseJattack, 05.09.2020
This keyboard is, in my humble opinion, the best in its price range. I have tried the most famous ones like the Akai, some M-Audio ones and the Nektar Impact lineup, but this is by far the best.

The layout is absolutely gorgeous, which may not be needed to make music, but I personally think it is important that your gear is beautiful, and I find this keyboard quite aesthetically pleasing.

For Ableton users this is a no-brainer, since the amount of features you get to handle the software are absolutely insane. Despite that, Novation have taken other DAW users into consideration and brought up some nice features and add-ons for non Ableton users.

Technically speaking, I am no expert, but I find the keybed much more confortable to play than the other ones and the pots are nice. They wobble a bit but can't ask much.

I find the slider-type modulation and pitch wheels much more comfortable to use than the real thing. Also, they show no bump since they are flat with the surface, so I think it is a great design decision.

The pads are no special good in quality concerns (also not special bad, either, they work absolutely fine), but the device comes with a piece of sofware (Components) that lets you program every single pad and pot in every possible way, which I find absolutely amazing.

Speaking of software, at the beginning, they let you download everything that you get from the device from a nice landing page, so it is very easy to get everything set up.

All in all, I think you don't give up in anything with this device, while still keeping it cheap. Can't imagine how good their higher end devices may be.

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.

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.
