OVERVIEW

Professional control for Ableton Live.

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 your 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

The whole instrument is designed to keep you focused on your performance. It lets you easily and immediately apply effects (Device Mode), while dipping in and out of specific mixer controls at the touch of a button. Of course, if you want to get really creative, download a growing library of Max for Live devices, and control them using your Launchpad Pro.It's sleek, lightweight and tough enough that you can throw it in your bag and know it will survive even the roughest gigs. It also comes with everything you need to get started (cables and software): just plug it in and start making music.

Never hit a wrong note again! With the Scale function, simply press Launchpad Pro’s Shift and Note buttons, then choose from a roster of 32 keys and modes, from major and minor, through phrygian, whole tone and more. Once selected, Launchpad Pro’s 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads will assign themselves contiguously to only the notes of the selected scale, removing all the rest. Launchpad Pro is turned into a deeply expressive instrument that lets you focus on the music, rather than precise finger positions.

Scale mode isn’t just for Ableton Live – you can use it to play virtual instruments in any other DAW, as well as your hardware synths. Launchpad Pro does not require connection to a computer; it can send MIDI via its 1/8th-inch output (and an included 5-pin Din adapter), so you can play external synths without a keyboard controller.

      Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

      First off, I don't use Ableton Live, so if you're getting it as an Ableton controller, I can't tell you much. I can tell you that this is a GREAT midi controller. Recently when recording I've been using my old MPC2500 as a midi controller (in conjunction with Battery 4) and got this as a replacement, so I use this almost exclusively in drum mode. I'll do cons first then pros.

      CONS (all minor to me)
      1. Pad midi notes are set and cannot be changed.
      2. Note mode is useless. I couldn't even figure out how the notes were organized.
      3. Thing is HELLA bright in drum mode and cannot be adjusted far as I can tell.

      PROS
      1. Velocity sensitive pads feel great. Adjustable velocity curves.
      2. Pad layout in drum mode is perfect, so no adjustments needed really.
      3. Excellent build.

      4. Final pro is a big one: open source firmware means all the cons could be fixed by future updates from either Novation OR the Launchpad use community.

      If you need pads, this is it.
