The perfect partner for Novation's Launchpad controller.

Launch Control XL is the ultimate mixer and device controller for Ableton Live. Immerse yourself in your music using eight 60mm faders and tweak your effects, devices, and plug-ins with 24 LED-enhanced knobs and 16 multi-color performance buttons.

Used in tandem with Launchpad's powerful 64-button grid, Launch Control XL offers an unprecedented Live control experience. Whether you're triggering clips in the session view or playing drum racks with satisfying LED feedback, Launch Control XL aligns perfectly with Launchpad's intuitive 8x8 surface. You can even combine multiple units for some serious music making mayhem!

Complete with Ableton Live Lite, 1GB of world class Loopmasters sample content, and rock-solid mixer integration straight out of the box, Launch Control XL will propel your Ableton Live experience to the next level.

Novation Control for Ableton Live
Launch Control XL integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, providing immediate hands-on control of your mixer, effects, and instruments.

24 High-Quality Knobs with Customizable Multi-Color LEDs
Launch Control XL's impressive array of rotary controls illuminate to distinguish between sends, EQs, or any other device. Solid, reliable, and precise, each pot has a subtle center notch for powerful EQ-style control.

The Ultimate Performance Combination
Take your music to the next level. Launch Control XL aligns perfectly with Launchpad and Launchpad S to deliver the ultimate Ableton Live control experience.

Focus on the Music, Not on the Screen
With 16 additional high-performance multi-color buttons, Launch Control XL delivers instant control over all of Live's mixer and device parameters right out of the box. All controls are also freely re-assignable to any parameter you like.

Big Faders, Compact Size
Ableton users want faders they can trust. Launch Control XL incorporates eight rugged 60mm faders for high-precision level control, all of which are MIDI re-mappable to envelopes, filters, or anything else.

Personalize Your Own Control Layouts
Crafting the perfect mix has never been easier. The software editor included with Launch Control XL allows you to design your own templates, placing the power of Ableton at your fingertips. You can even customize knobs with your own colors and effortlessly switch between your own mappings and Live's built-in functionality.

Tough, Slim, and Totally Gig-able
Launch Control XL is road-ready to its core. Its nutted-down pots and super rugged build quality makes it tough enough to handle the most demanding live situation. It's also fully USB bus-powered, so you don't even need a power supply.

Connects to Almost Anything
No set-up required: simply plug in and play on Mac, Windows, and iOS. Launch Control XL is also class-compliant, so you can easily connect your iPad for immediate control of all MIDI-compatible iOS music software (Camera Connection Kit required).

Launch Control XL comes with Ableton Live Lite, the music production software favored by countless leading artists, as well as an impressive collection of production-ready samples from the highly-esteemed Loopmasters.

    Comments about Novation Launch Control XL:

    I've been using Ableton Live for nearly five years now, and for the last four of that I've been using an AKAI APC20 to control it. That unit worked fine (still does, but it's been decommissioned), but was designed more for the performance end of Live's capabilities. I use Live for tracking/mixing/mastering my band's recordings, not for DJ-ing, EDM, or any other kind of clip-launch-song-based use for which the APC20 would be better suited.

    The main selling points of the Launch Control XL for me would be:
    a) faders AND knobs
    b) control of Live devices and 3rd party VST plugins
    c) it's fully user-programmable to set up your own mapping
    d) price (I'll admit I am a bit of a cheapskate)

    I only have a couple complaints, one of which is that there is no native transport control. This is easily remedied by programming a user setting mapping transport. Again, very easy fix. The other complaint is that while programming your own settings, I could change the colors of the LEDs for each knob, but the buttons below the faders are all dark in user mode. Maybe I'll get that figured out soon enough.

    I've used it for a week now, and I already have MUCH more control over the mixing/mastering process.

    Note: while you can create custom mappings for the unit and these changes can be saved, these changes are only for the Live Set in use at the time. You must create these custom mappings for each Live Set individually. So maybe that's a third complaint. But given the price, features and added control for how I use it (compared to the functions of the APC20 and how I used them), I STILL give this five stars.

    Comments about Novation Launch Control XL:

    This is a very well constructed product. The knobs and faders are going to take quite a while before they wear out. I think even using one of them for constant synth filter knob tweaking will take a couple years before it wears out. So far, i've just been using this with my iPad to make it feel like it's more of a hands on instrument, without having to touch the iPad. You have 24 potentiometers and 8 faders times 8 user configurable banks. That's a lot of control, and they all feel good to move back and forth.
    The one drawback is that it is USB only, both power and data transmission. With both iPhone and iPad this causes some conflict because of the power. It works fine with the Apple USB to lightning adapter if it's the only thing connected. However, even when set to low power mode, it is not usable with a USB hub unless it is powered. This is only a slight inconvenience for me because usually when i'm on 100% battery power i'm not trying to get complete control over all my parameters. In a laptop\desktop use, this product can be powered and transmit data just fine.

    Comments about Novation Launch Control XL:

    When using it with windows 10 shut all midi programs when you are using the editor and they need to update the editor to make it more clean running with windows 10.
    I had to spend many hours with support to finally get it to work due to the editor software issue.
