Made to perform

Launchpad X is Novation's essential 64-pad MIDI grid controller for Ableton Live. It gives you everything you need to make music. Launch, play and perform your sounds and build your tracks using the large, super-sensitive RGB pads, dynamic note and scale modes, and mixer controls.

FEATURES

  • 64 RGB Pads: Large RGB velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads give you a perfect reflection of your Ableton Live session, making it easier than ever to see your clips and play your instruments expressively.
  • Ableton Live Integration: Quickly launch clips and scenes, never lose ideas with Capture MIDI, and access performance controls like stop, solo, mute, record arm, volume, pan, and sends to dynamically control your music, no mouse needed.
  • Dynamic Note and Scale modes: Enable you to effortlessly play perfectly in-key basslines, melodies, chords and leads. Launchpad X even knows when you’re drumming and shows your drum rack on the grid.
  • Four Custom Modes: Use Novation Components to customise mappings and control anything MIDI easily from Launchpad X.
  • Get Started Easily: Use the online Easy Start tool to get all the software you want, and step-by-step video guides to get you set up with Live and making music in minutes.

The essential Live controller

Everything about making tracks in Ableton Live is made easier with Launchpad X’s quick, hands-on clip and scene launching and Novation's most playable grid to date. Play your instruments and devices expressively with the 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads, then never lose an idea with one-press Capture MIDI control. Launchpad X belongs on the desk of every Ableton Live music maker.

Express yourself

Launchpad X gives you everything you need right at your fingertips so you can spend less time clicking a mouse and more time making music. Never worry about being out of key – Dynamic Note and Scale modes let you easily play perfectly in-key basslines, melodies, chords and leads. Novation's most responsive velocity-sensitive pads with polyphonic aftertouch let you play your instruments dynamically and expressively. Step back from the screen, get hands-on and dive into your tracks.

Make it yours

Go deeper and get Launchpad X working the way you want. Use Novation Components to customise MIDI mappings, and control almost anything; four custom modes mean you can design how this essential grid controller works for you – you’re only limited by your imagination.

Take control of your performance

Essential performance controls are a single button-press away: stop, solo, mute, record arm and set your levels, pans and sends. Using Launchpad X is a simple as it gets, no drivers to install, just plug and perform. 

The Logical Choice

With Live Loops and any Launchpad, you can activate cells to experiment with arrangement ideas, and record your performances. Cells can contain one-shots, loops, MIDI patterns and automation data, and can be dragged-and-dropped or recorded live into Logic’s tracks area, to build song arrangements quickly.

Launchpad X goes even bigger with an additional four Custom Mode slots added in version 2.0. Now with a total of eight slots, you can take your music to new heights and experiment with the versatile new Custom Mode key stroke widget, without compromising on the space you have to create.
