Novation offers the Launchkey 49 MK3, one of the new intuitive and fully integrated MIDI keyboard controllers for making tracks in Ableton Live, designed to give you everything you need to create and play your music.

Made for creators of all abilities, Launchkey gives you inspirational tools to expand your musical vocabulary. Scale and Chord modes and a powerful arpeggiator push your musical creativity and help start new ideas. Custom Modes and a full-size MIDI output transform Launchkey into a powerful centerpiece of any music-making setup.

Firmware Update v1.1 is available as of 4-20-21 and it includes Strum Mode.

Strum Mode is a new feature in v1.1 that allows chords to be played as if a guitar were being strummed. It's easy to employ, simply hold down the notes of your chord and trigger strum via the mod strip on the Mini MK3 or the mod wheel on the Launchkey MK3. This innovative variation can also be used alongside other arpeggiator modes on Launchkey devices.
