Unless you're in the market for a new midi controller you probably don't notice all the new releases. Unlike synths and drum machines, controllers are hard to get excited about, until the old one you uses starts crapping out. Well, if you're in the market for a new set of keys make sure to check out the new Novation Launchkey:
"Launchkey is a range of 25, 49 and 61 note keyboard controllers with up to 50 physical controls including 16 velocity-sensitive multi-colour trigger-pads that launch clips and scenes in Ableton Live. As well as enabling hands-on control of your DAW's mixer, instruments and more, Launchkey is an integrated software/hardware instrument. The control surface has been designed to work tightly alongside two intuitive apps for iPad: the Launckey app and the Launchpad app - plus the powerful V-Station & Bass Station synth plug-ins for Mac and Windows."
