Novation Launchpad Ableton Live Controller
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 light shows with it's RGB light pads.
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?
RGB technology allows you to light LED’s in almost any color you can imagine. What this means is that your Novation RGB device will light up to match the color of your clips in Ableton Live. Now you can see at a glance which clips are loaded, playing and recording. The other advantage of RGB pads is that you can design, create and play colorful interactive light shows to enhance your performance.
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.
Throw It in Your Bag
Launchpad is totally portable: lightweight, easy to pack and carry around, and fully USB bus powered - so there's no need for power sockets. You can also combine it with more Launchpads or other Launch products to build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio. Just add Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey.
