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. Comes with 4GB of Loopmasters samples. Launchpad Pro also comes with a choice from 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST.

  • Integrates seamlessly and simplifies performing in Ableton Live
  • Simply plug in and starting playing your music
  • Control just about anything including MIDI enabled devices and more
  • Drum racks are automatically laid out and illuminated
  • Easy-to-play velocity and pressure-sensitive pads

  • Control any effect or instrument mid-performance to add expressive effects
  • Max for Live lets you use your Launchpad Pro however you like
  • Compact and light enough to throw in your bag
  • Tough enough to survive the roughest gigs
  • Comes with Ableton Live Lite music making software, 4GB of Loopmasters samples, and Bass Station and V Station plug-in synthesizers, and a choice from 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST: One full license per account gives you one Addictive Keys instrument. Pick from Modern Upright, Studio Grand, Electric Grand or Mark One.

Enhance your Ableton performance and production workflow.

    Great Midi 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.

        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.


        A few extra buttons go a long way!

          Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

          As a now-former Launchpad S user, I didn't think I needed the upgrade at first. After watching some videos and a friend's recommendation, however, I caved and bought the Launchpad Pro. A few of the highlights for me were the additional function buttons that allow a lot of Live functions that previously had to either be MIDI-mapped or controlled with a mouse and the built-in scales in Note Mode. I highly recommend that you download the free firmware update, which somewhat copies the scale mode from the Circuit, giving you two different scale modes to use for live MIDI input. I have previously had cable issues with my Launchpad Mini and Launchpad S where the cable would disconnect when I moved my Launchpad. Fortunately, I haven't seemed to experience this yet with my Launchpad Pro. If you have the money and are at least somewhat familiar with the older Launchpad models, this is certainly a good investment.
