                                  Great features and integration with Ableton Live but poorly built
                                  deepr, 10.07.2020
                                  PROS: the integration with Ableton Live is great! As far as I know, at this price range, that's the best you will find. Other features like the arpeggiator and chord memory are also very useful regardless of your DAW. The MIDI out is another plus.

                                  CONS: the build quality is awful, especially the keys. They have a terrible wobble to their sides, it feels like they will break at any moment, even though probably (hopefully???) they won't. The rotary knobs on top are just ok, a little wobble as well as you might expect from a cheap piece of gear, but nothing extreme. The major downside is that there is very little space between them. Regarding the pads, they do their job, even though they are quite small compared to other controllers.

                                  VERDICT: Previously I've owned a Minilab and an AKAI MPK mini and by far the Launchkey has the worse build quality. On the other hand, it has the best integration with Ableton and the best features overall. So I'd say if you're a musician looking for a keyboard to actually play stuff, buy something else. But if you're a producer/beatmaker on a budget, the Launchkey will do the job!

                                  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.

                                  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.

                                  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.

                                  Bang for the buck!
                                  knowsmth, 04.08.2020
                                  Really good minikeyboard compared to others around hundred bucks. Really durable. I've tested quite many different and lot of those went broken due to travelling. This has lot of knobs and pads for producing, but I really suggest this for secondary keyboard since it is always good to have one with minimum 49 keys. This would be good for newcoming producers!
