Launchkey controlling other hardware

Standalone operation

Launchkey works standalone, so it’s the perfect controller for any music-making setup, with or without a computer. The Scale and Chord Modes, arpeggiator and Custom Modes can all be used to control an all-hardware studio or live rig.

Three Chord Modes* (Fixed, Scale and User) let you trigger chords with one finger.

Make Launchkey your own
Four Custom Modes enable you to create unique control setups for any performance or studio rig.
