Review:

Novation Launchkey is a hands on synthesizer with 70 preset sounds that can be controlled in real time. Control Amp and Modulation envelopes from the 8 hardware faders and start, stop and latch controls for the arpeggiator. Change the sound easily with the interactive display. CoreMIDI Network is supported. On the whole the sounds are great though the graphical interface isn’t as great as it could be. Groups of assigned parameters could be made easier to manipulate and the ability to create user groups or delete groups. Nice start to a potential great app. Get it free from the itunes store. Not compatible with iPhone or iPod Touch.
