Launchpad Pro is the professional grid performance instrument. Create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live or any other music software. Use the enhanced 8x8 grid of RGB velocity and pressure-sensitive pads to trigger and combine clips, play dynamic beats and melodies, and even control external MIDI hardware. Novation understand the pressures of performing live. That’s why they have made it as easy as possible to control Ableton Live, by building four simple modes into Launchpad Pro, which streamline everything for you:
- Session Mode: immediately trigger and combine you clips.
- Note Mode: create dynamic beats and play the grid just like an instrument.
- Device Mode: easily apply effects to your performance.
- User Mode: create unique custom performances and layouts
Enhance your Live performance:
Launchpad Pro integrates seamlessly and simplifies the challenge of performing in Ableton Live, by giving you hands-on control of your clips and tracks with four simple modes: Session, Note, Device, and User. Ableton Live Lite is included and you don’t need to set anything up. Simply plug in and starting playing your music – everything just works.
Control just about anything:
Whichever software or MIDI hardware you make music with, Launchpad Pro lets you control it. Plug it straight into Logic Pro and play it like a keyboard, or connect the MIDI ports to Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid.
Immediately play your clips:
The 8x8 grid of RGB pads light up to match the color of your clips in Ableton, so you can concentrate on triggering and combining your loops and ideas.
Make dynamic beats:
Drum racks are automatically laid out and illuminated, which makes it as easy as possible to create expressive beats and drum performances us ing the velocity and pressure- sensitive pads.
Play it like an instrument:
You can easily play notes, melodies, and chords on the grid, because Launchpad Pro illuminates its pads in a melodic layout. You’ll get LED feedback every time you press a pad and, if you’re in Standalone Mode, you can use the grid to play any of your software and external hardware, too.
Mix without losing focus:
Get 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. Press and hold a mixer function button (like mute or volume), make a change, and then simply release the button to drop straight back into your performance.
Easily control your effects:
Control any effect or instrument mid-performance to add expressive effects like reverb or filters. The button grid turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders, with LED feedback for super smooth effect transitions.
