Designed for Ableton Live, but powerful enough for virtually any electronic music software, the Novation Launch Control XL puts eight channels of hands-on control at your fingertips. Three banks of knobs offer instant access to sends, panning, and more, whereas eight 60mm faders let you smoothly tweak track volume or other continuous parameters. The Launch Control XL also gives you 16 multicolor buttons for functions such as mute, solo, record arm, or even clip launching, and when you combine your Launch Control XL with a Launchpad, you get a totally immersive Ableton Live experience like nothing else.
From the first day the original Launchpad hit the market, those of us here at Music Experience who love Ableton Live gained a newfound respect for Novation. While the Launch Control XL is a more function-centric design than the Launchpad, it carries over the same genius and functional ease. In fact, if you're using the factory template, you'll probably never have to crack a manual to put the Launch Control XL to work for you, so you can spend less time reading and more time creating music.
What if you aren't using Ableton Live? No problem! Novation designed the Launch Control XL with the wide world of music-production platforms in mind. In addition to its templates, which provide a ton of functionality right out of the box, the Launch Control XL offers fully class-compliant MIDI, allowing you to instantly pair it with virtually any music software or any app on your Mac, PC, or iOS device. And with built-in support for Mackie's HUI protocol, Launch Control XL also works with Cubase, Logic Pro, DP, and Pro Tools, mapping its sliders, knobs, and buttons to their mixers' volume faders, pan pots, mute and solo buttons, and more.
