The iconic grid instrument for Ableton Live 

If you use Ableton Live, you need a Launchpad. Its 8 x 8 grid has become ubiquitous with the evolution of electronic music, letting you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer, all while creating impressive lightshows.

Get Creative 

Launchpad’s 64 pads integrate immediately with Ableton Live. They’re also lit by RGB LEDS, which match the color of your clips – so you can see at a glance what clips are loaded, playing or recording.

What is RGB? 

As well as using your pads to launch clips and create entire songs, you can also use them to control your mixer: start and stop loops, arm tracks and control volumes, pans and sends.

Control Your Music Software 

Launchpad integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup whatsoever. Just plug in and start making music.
