USB Ableton Live Controller with 64 Pads

Overview

The Easiest Way to Take Full Control of Ableton.
Launchpad Pro is the simplest and best way to create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live, or any music software.

We've given our iconic Launchpad a total overhaul. Enhanced with RGB LED feedback, and velocity and pressure-sensitive pads, Launchpad Pro brings limitless expression and creativity to your music.

It's An Instrument - Play It!
Launchpad Pro is an instrument designed for live performance. The new RGB pads light up to match the colour of your clips in Ableton Live's session view, so you can see at a glance which clips are playing.

In Note Mode, it automatically switches the layout for drum or instrument devices:

Drums: all your sounds spread across the whole grid, on velocity and pressure-sensitive pads which let you create expressive beats.

Instruments: the grid illuminates as a chromatic keyboard, so you can easily play notes, melodies and chords.

Play Just About Anything
You can use the grid to play any of your music software and external hardware too - with Standalone Mode. It doesn't matter which software you are using: plug it straight into Logic Pro, for example, and play it like a keyboard; connect the MIDI ports to your Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid. The possibilities are endless.

Stay in Your Flow
Launchpad Pro is much more than an instrument: it also gives you slick, immediate access to all your mixer controls mid-performance, so you stay in your flow. There™s no need to enter a separate mixer mode; simply press and hold a mixer function button (like mute or volume), make a change, and then release the button to drop straight back into your performance.

Scale Mode
Press the Note and Shift buttons to switch Launchpad Pro to Scale Mode. The pads automatically assign themselves to the notes of one of 32 keys and modes, making it impossible to play out of key. Seven Overlap options enable the relative positioning of notes on each row to be offset, while Chromatic 4th Mode keeps the pads assigned to the chromatic series but highlights the notes of the selected scale or mode within it.

Stay in Control of Everything
Control your effects, instrument devices and plug-ins mid-performance to add engaging, expressive effects. For super smooth effect transitions, the button grid also turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders, with LED feedback - the harder you hit the pad, the faster the transition.

Plug In and Get Started
Launchpad Pro is just as sleek, lightweight and tough as the rest of our Launch range and can be chained to multiple other Launch products, or connected to the rest of your studio or live setup.

It comes with everything you need to get started, including cables and software, and can be bus-powered over USB. It™s also class compliant and doesn™t need any drivers; just install the software, plug in and start performing.

Loopmasters
Now expanded from 1GB to a whopping 4GB, the Loopmasters sample library included with every Novation Product is packed with professional quality, royalty-free loops and one-shots.

Encompassing all contemporary genres - from blues, funk and hip-hop to bass, techno and all flavours of house - and taking in a huge range of electronic and acoustic instrumentation, it's everything you need to start making music today!
