Novation Launchpad is a 64-button 'music controller' that enables you to make music or mix tracks by other artists. You don't need advanced musical knowledge, just your own creativity….

It comes with 'Ableton' music-making software which is used by some of the world's top DJs and producers. You can use the buttons to trigger sounds and loops, change the volume of each sound, and add effects to them.

Jointly designed by Ableton and Novation, Launchpad places Ableton Live at your fingertips. Whether you're a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to truly 'play' Live.

Launchpad is ultra-portable. It is USB bus powered (no need for power sockets), and weighs in at just 717gms (one third the weight of a Macbook).

With a multi-colour 64-button grid and dedicated scene launch buttons, Launchpad is purpose built for triggering and manipulating clips in Live, it also offers a totally new way of controlling Ableton Live's mixer. Launchpad's buttons can be used to sketch out beats with drum racks, and they can be assigned to other functions in Live using Ableton's 'Learn' mode.

Launchpad ships with a dedicated 'Launchpad edition' of Ableton Live 8, but can control almost any other music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software.

Physical controls and Indicators:

  • 64 (8x8 grid) square multi-colour back-lit buttons.
  • 8 round multi-colour back-lit system buttons (assignable).
  • 8 round multi-colour back-lit function buttons (not assignable).

Connectivity:

  • L-shaped USB 1.1 connector.
