Launchpad Pro is the simplest and best way to create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live, or any music software.
Novation has given its 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 color 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.
