Hands-On Review: The Novation Launchkey MK3

Novation has always been in the forefront of MIDI controller technology. The first version of the Remote SL promised a supreme command over your chosen DAW, complete with scribble scripts and a smart programming interface, which allowed you to control not only software, but hardware MIDI devices, as well. Novation has been pushing the boundaries of controller technology with its flagship SL MK3 MIDI controller, which adds a boatload of advanced features and functions, but with a premium price tag.

So, what’s a struggling musician supposed to do if they can’t afford the absolute very best? Do not fret, because Novation has always offered low-cost, budget-friendly controllers. In fact, its latest offering, the Launchkey MK3 series, offers a host of premium features, but at an affordable price. Packed with a ton of inspirational music-making features, more expressive pads and keys, and deeper Ableton Live integration than ever before, the Launchkey MK3 is offered in a variety of sizes, including 25, 37, 49, and 61 keys. For this hands-on review, I was sent the 49-key version.
