Novation Launchkey v1.1 Released – Also Announced Launchpad App & Launchkey Hardware Keyboards
Novation have released version 1.1 of Launchkey – their powerful and unique analogue modelling synthesiser for the iPad. The update allows fully integrated control with the new Novation Launchkey hardware keyboards. They have also added a Virtual MIDI port for better integration with other music apps, updated the graphics, and fixed the “Aperture” patch to remove the resonance noise. MIDI Channel 10 has also been removed from the MIDI input channels (it is now reserved for control).
As well as the new Launchkey range of hardware keyboards, they have also announced the new Launchpad app for iPad!
“Launchpad a music performance app for iPad that will have you making beats and triggering loops instantly. It’s packed full of high quality loops and sounds that can be combined in the multi-colour 8×6 Launchpad grid to make and remix music. The built-in time stretching always keeps you locked in to the beat, so your loops don’t go out of time.”
“Launchkey is a range of 25, 49 and 61 note keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour launch pads that trigger and stop clips – and launch scenes – in Ableton Live. As well as enabling hands-on control of your DAWâ€™s mixer, instruments and more, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument. The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad: the Launchkey app and the Launchpad app – plus the powerful V-Station & Bass Station synth plug-ins for Mac and Windows.”
