Novation decided to enhance the design of its Launchkey MIDI controller keyboards and pads as well as the Launchpad Mini.
You won’t find any new feature on these new mk2 versions of the Launchkey and Launchpad Mini, improvements only apply to the aesthetics and the built of the devices.
Indeed, the Launchkey 25 mk2, 69 mk2 and 61 mk2 now automatically connect to Ableton Live and most of the DAWs with InControl for instant control of the instruments, effects, mixer and session parameters.
Novation improved the dynamic pads, including the RGB feedback, with colors that now match the clips in Ableton Live.
The LaunchKey Mini mk2 now features a turquoise lower chassis to match the rest of the Launchkey controllers. Last, improvements brought to the LaunchPad Mini mk2 concern the construction quality of the pad controller.
Both new models will be available late-April with a unit street price of 109.90€.
