This controller builds on the successful design of the Launchpad a compact control surface that's designed to give you ultimate control over Ableton's software and bring the Live experience to your fingertips. Whether you are a studio producer, Live DJ, or Live Musician, the Launchpad gives you a musical, intuitive means of controlling almost anything in the Ableton software without going near your keyboard or mouse. As you'd expect from Novation, the Launchpad MK2 looks great, and can be operated effortlessly so it's an awesome tool for live shows!
One of the most noticeable upgrades from the Previous model, Launchpad S, is the addition of full RGB colour pads, that not only look amazing but can indicate a wide variety of parameters. This Colourful 8X8 grid lets you launch clips, play drum racks and control your whole mix, whilst creating impressive visuals which enable you to work without needing to look at your laptop.
Here's what Novation Say about the Launchpad MK2:
This is the iconic Novation Launchpad: the favourite grid controller for Ableton Live performers, now with RGB LEDs. Mirror the Live Session View clips, arranged and colour matched across the 64 button grid.
Control Ableton Live:
Integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup whatsoever. Just plug in and start making music.
Focus on your music:
All 64 RGB pads light up to match the colour of your clips in Live and you can see at a glance what’s loaded, playing and recording.
Create eye-catching performances:
Bright, colourful pads make the unit stand out just from USB power; on stage or when creating exciting Launchpad lightshow videos that are all over YouTube.
Play drum racks:
Use the grid to play drums and samples with pads pre-mapped to Ableton Live's drum rack
Mix from your grid:
Start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends – all from your grid. Stay in constant control
Control FL Studio:
Use your grid to control FL Studio’s Performance Mode. Create beats on drum racks, launch clips and build songs, or assign your pads to any other function
Build your own creations:
Max for Live lets you use your Launchpad however you like – turn it into a step sequencer, trigger videos from drum pads or use it to create just about anything you can imagine. Alternatively, engage with the whole community of Max for Live creators to find limitless inspiration and downloads.
Throw it in your bag:
Sleek, tough and lightweight, Launchpad is fully USB bus powered so you’ll never need to carry a power supply.
