Novation announced the Launchkey Mini on Tuesday, a MIDI controller for iPad, Mac, and PC. This keyboard controller is small, but it's feature-packed with a 25-note mini-keyboard, 26 assignable controls, 16 velocity sensitive launch pads in three colors, eight knobs, seven function buttons, and two performance buttons. That's a lot of stuff. There's a companion player app for iPad on the App Store called Novation Launchkey, and it comes with lite versions of Mac and PC software, along with some loops. It connects to your iPad through Apple's Camera Connection Kit, and it's powered by your iPad (no batteries or power chords). Cool, eh? It's priced at US$99 at dealers.
