The Novation Launchkey is a range of 25, 49, and 61 note keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-color launch pads that trigger and stop clips, and launch scenes in Ableton Live. In addition to enabling control of your DAW's mixer, instruments and more, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument. Launchkey includes software for iPad, Mac and PC including a new Launchkey synth app, a Launchpad app for triggering and improvising with loops, and V-Station and Bass Station soft synths for Mac and PC, plus Ableton Live Lite and a Loopmasters sample pack. Launchkey is a controller for all major music software, giving you control of your mixer, transport and more in Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Logic and Cubase. With 9 faders, 9 buttons, 8 rotary knobs and transport controls, nothing comes close to Launchkey for controllability. 16 multi-color backlit velocity-sensitive launch pads can be used to play drums and trigger loops without being near a computer. The 16 launch pads are perfect for sketching out beats, playing in drum patterns, or triggering clips and scenes in Ableton Live. The velocity-sensitive synth-style keyboard mechanism is accompanied by pitch and mod wheels and octave, track up/down buttons. The Novation Launchpad is a music performance app for iPad that will have you making beats and triggering loops instantly. It's packed with loops and sounds that can be combined in the multi-color 8x6 Launchpad grid to make and remix music. The app follows key features from the Launchpad hardware without the complexity. 8 volume sliders allow quick volume changes and simple FX modes offer cool DJ effects. The Launchpad and Launchkey apps can transform your Launchkey hardware into a synth and loop triggering workstation for performing and producing music with your iPad. The launch pads on the hardware trigger loops in the app and you can get control of levels with Launchkey's physical faders.
Scarlett 2i2 :
At Focusrite, our motto is “Sound Is Everything”, and every Scarlett USB 2.0 audio interface exemplifies sound quality with top-quality precision digital conversion, and Focusrite’s legendary mic preamps – two of which are included in the Scarlett 2i2. Like all Scarlett interfaces, 2i2 is fully compatible with Macintosh® (including Yosemite®) and Windows® - and with the new included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins, it’s a perfect partner for Pro Tools®.
The 2-in, 2-out USB interface for musicians
The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2-in / 2-out USB recording interface featuring dual award-winning Focusrite preamps and precision digital conversion. Housed in a rugged anodised aluminium unibody chassis, the interface not only sounds fantastic but looks great too. What’s more, it’s solid enough to take on the road. And inside is 30 years of pro audio design expertise.
Plug straight in
Use the front panel high quality XLR/jack combination inputs to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones – perfect for recording a synth or stage piano, or at the flick of a switch, an electric or acoustic guitar.
Check your levels at a glance
Unique “halo” indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.
At the heart of Scarlett 2i2 is Focusrite’s precision digital conversion, ensuring you get the very best quality into and out of your computer. Focusrite has been building converters since the introduction of its mastering converter in 1993, and our careful choice of components and equally careful board design ensure that you get superior low noise and distortion performance.
Flexible monitoring options
A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for monitor speaker volume, while a high quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs, letting you monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.
Polish Your Mix
All Scarlett audio interfaces include Ableton Live Lite recording software, plus two powerful software plug-ins: Red Plug-in Suite and Scarlett Plug-in Suite.
Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-In Suite
The Red Plug-in Suite accurately models our classic Red 2 equaliser and Red 3 compressor, to bring the sound of the famous original hardware to your music software.
