The Launchpad X will revolutionise your electronic music live performances. It is the ideal 64-pad MIDI grid controller – letting you build, launch, play and then perform your tracks all in one easy-to-use piece of gear.
Ableton Live Integration
This bit of kit is built to work in harmony with Ableton Live. You’ll be able to launch scenes and clips fast and save ideas on the fly using the innovative Capture MIDI mode. Having to use a mouse is now a thing of the past too. Operate versatile performance controls, including pan, mute and solo to control and tweak your music as you play. The 64 RGB pads provide you with a view of what’s going on in your Ableton session at any one point (matching your clips and scenes). This makes viewing your clips the easiest it’s ever been.
Enhanced Control & Creative Options
You will have access to improved control in almost every department. Each pad is both pressure and velocity sensitive, allowing you to play with a tonne of expression during your performances. You won’t have to worry about being out of tune either. Play everything from leads and chords, to melodies and basslines – all in-key, with minimal effort required!
Bundled together with the Launchpad X is a whole host of wide-ranging software and plug-ins. Pioneering companies such as Softube, Klevgrand and many more have provided you with a selection of their products – granting you the tools needed to increase the variety and quality of your sounds.
Logic Pro X 10.5 Live Loops
This new update lets you trigger cells within Logic's workflow. These cells can contain either loops, one-shots, MIDI patterns, automation data etc. Each can be freely moved around or recorded live via Logic's tracks function. When used with your Launchpad fully integrated, your production experience within Logic becomes far more hands-on.
Here's What Novation say About the Launchpad & Logic Pro 10.6 Update:
In Logic Pro 10.6, Launchpad X and Launchpad Mini [MK3] devices no longer need to be rotated to properly display the Live Loops grid, as was required in v10.5. However, there are orientation options in Logic’s settings that allow you to choose vertical or rotated arrangement, to suit your preference. This flexibility provides a much more cohesive experience, allowing you to seamlessly jump between different modes.
