Novation Launchpad range

The Launchpad and Launchpad Pro offer a host of possibilities for tactile control, so you can stay in the music-making flow without using your mouse.

Launchpad

The Launchpad offers an 8x8 grid of velocity-sensitive RGB pads that let you launch clips, play drum racks and create melodies.  As well as using your pads to jam in session view or create entire songs, you can also control your mixer: start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends.

Key features

Hands-on control

​Launch multiple clips at once, trigger scenes and navigate your Ableton Live session. Integrate immediately without any setup - just plug in via USB.

Focus on your music

All 64 RGB pads light up to match the color of your clips in Ableton Live and you can see at a glance what’s loaded, playing and recording.

Grid flexibility

Launchpad’s grid lets you play drums and samples with pads pre-mapped to Ableton Live's drum rack. You can start and stop loops and arm tracks without touching the mouse, plus the eight rows of pads also double up as stepped faders to control volumes, pans and sends.

Control Max for Live

Launchpad gives you hands-on control of Max for Live: turn it into a step sequencer, trigger videos from drum pads and much more.

Take it anywhere

Launchpad is tough, lightweight and USB powered. It’s also compact and fits easily into a backpack.

Launchpad Pro

The Launchpad Pro offers an even more dynamic and musical approach to controlling Live. New modes allow you to switch between triggering clips, controlling Live devices, and using the grid as drum pads or a chromatic keyboard. On top of this, the Launchpad Pro offers direct access to editing controls, dedicated mixer function buttons and new velocity-sensitive pads for more expressive beat making.
