Novation LaunchKey Synth

Just FYI, the LaunchKey Synth is available right now, for free, from the app market on iTunes. It’s certainly neat and for free, you should definitely give it a try and it doesn’t require the controller to work.

One thing I’m curious about though is this bit of copy for the LaunchKey controller: “an integrated software/hardware instrument”. There is also the companion Launchpad app and the iPad is able to power the controller, so I’m curious if it will be a stand alone app or work as a remote for Ableton Live; or perhaps even both.

The advert does say that the controller ships with both apps and content from LoopMasters and the Launchpad app is shown with the controller, not a laptop. So it could be quite possible at NAAM that the Launchpad app with be introduced as being a mini version of Ableton Live with the ability to load loops into the pads.

This could prove to be very interesting….
