Take command of your music with Novation's Launch Control. This compact software controller lets you take command of your virtual instruments, plug-in effects, and DAW mixer functions with effortless efficiency. Eight touch-sensitive pads let you trigger loops and play samples comfortably. At the same time, the Launch Control sports 16 knobs that put a ton of parameter control at your fingertips. Whether you use it on its own or together with other Novation controllers, the Launch Control will add a ton of functionality to your rig.
Launch Control makes creating electronic music way more fun. Its chunky knobs and multicoloured pads let you play your software like an instrument, by giving you hands-on control over any aspect of your sound that you like. It may be half the size of its big brother, Launch Control XL, but its 16 banks give you more than enough controls to get as creative as you like with your sound.
Peering at a screen doesn’t make a good performance. It’s also bad for your eyes. We designed Launch Control to make you way more creative, by putting your controls directly into your hands. We spent a long time designing these knobs: they're sturdy and full-sized, they feel great to hold and turn and they're all surrounded by multicoloured LED indicators. The pads are great, too: they're large and rubbery, and they give bright multicoloured LED feedback, which makes them perfect for triggering clips, playing notes and tweaking key mixer controls.
There are 16 knobs and 8 buttons on a Launch Control. If that's not enough for you, you can bank up to 16 times - essentially giving you 256 knobs and 128 buttons. That's 448 controls! You can assign these controls to whatever you like in Ableton Live, or any other major music software. You can also easily switch between your own mappings and the factory templates.
Combine with Launchpad for total freedom when playing using Ableton Live. Trigger clips, play drum racks, and control your mixer, effects and instruments, all at the same time!
Chuck it in your bag and put it through the most demanding live gigs: it’s designed for it. It’s tough, compact and fully USB bus powered, so you can plug in and play without a power supply.
Launch Control works on any modern Mac, PC or iOS device, and integrates immediately with Ableton Live and Fruity Loops. It's also simple to set up in any other MIDI-compatible software, even on iOS if you have a Camera Connection Kit (not included).
