Ableton Live Integration

Scale Mode, Chord Modes, and Powerful Arpeggiator
Launchkey 37 MK3 features a number of inspirational features including Scale Mode, Chord Modes, and a powerful Arpeggiator. Scale Mode transposes keys and pads played to notes in the scale selected; chord mode lets you trigger complex chords with a single finger; while the powerful arpeggiator lets you explore new melodies quicker than ever. There’s also a mutate function that reconstructs your patterns into exciting new sounds.
Another great addition to the Launchkey 37 MK3 is the ability to program custom modes. Using the Novation Components browser-based tool, you can really customize the behaviour of your Launchkey. Giving you complete control over assigning your knobs, MIDI routing, pad colours, and so much more.
On top of that, the Launchkey 37 MK3 has a full-size five-pin MIDI DIN output. Giving you the ability to easily connect to your realm of MIDI devices. Now not only does the Launchkey 37 MK3 have standalone potential, but you can also use it as the centrepiece to your live or studio setup.
The Launchkey 37 has always been a flexible controller, but Novation has taken the MK3 to the next level. Boasting large and improved velocity-sensitive pads, you’ll have even greater control over your dynamics. While eight fixed rotary knobs let you take complete control over your sound. You can’t go past the seamless integration with Ableton Live either. With a dedicated button for activating Capture MIDI, plus track arm, quantise, click, and loop controls.
