Novation FLkey 49 49-Key MIDI Controller Keyboard, FL Studio DAW Integration


Manufacturer's Description

Make more of your music.

FLkey 49 is the ultimate full-size MIDI keyboard controller for complete hands-on music production in FL Studio. With controls for FL Studio’s Sequencer, Channel Rack and Mixer, and creative Scale and Chord modes, FLkey 49 lets you play freely so you can make more of your music.

Stay in the groove.

Sequencer Mode maps FLkey 49’s pads to FL Studio’s step sequencer for programming beats fast. Use the pads to change or create new patterns without switching back to your computer. Give your rhythms real human feel and get off the grid: play straight into the Channel Rack or FPC, and trigger slices in SliceX. Need some crisp hi-hat rolls? Note Repeat makes it easy every single time.

Mix, create and automate.

Bring FL Studio’s Mixer and Channel Rack controls off the screen, into your hands – use the eight pots and nine faders to tweak your volumes or pans and record automation on the fly. Essential transport buttons give you access to your score log, and you can undo, redo, quantize and trigger metronome in an instant. Browse presets in your Image Line plug-ins to change up instruments and sounds fast, with no mouse needed. 

Connect with your music.

In Scale mode you always hit the right note, keeping the music flowing. Three Chord modes let you play a range of chords with one finger, unlocking big harmonies and new sounds instantly. Combine FLkey 49’s musical tools to unlock new creative boundaries and find ideas you never knew you had.

However you want, wherever you want.

FLkey 49 comes with a bundle of instruments and effects from our friends at AAS, Spitfire Audio, XLN Audio and Klevgrand. Throw all this content into your existing FL Studio projects or have a go with an included 6-month free trial of FL Studio Producer Edition.
