Launchkey 25 MK2: Possibly the best controller keyboard in its price bracket” // “a solid and dependable 25-note controller keyboard”

Ableton Live Expert
Launch Pad Pro: “it just gets down to business, and especially for live performance, that is a good thing”

Pro Tools Expert
“If you are looking for a new MIDI controller and want a lot of bang for your buck then check out the Novation Launchkey 25, 49, or 61 they represent outstanding value for money.”

Wire Realm
“...the Novation Launchkey 49 is our pick for best 49 key MIDI keyboard controller.”

“It's important to point out that although the XL can be mapped to any DAW and even connects to you iPad, it really shines when it is being used to control Live with its sibling, the Launchpad beside it.”

Future Music
“For Ableton users, it addresses the lack of a serious Arrangement View mixer in Live's interface. Used with the Launchpad, the XL is a total no-brainer.”
