For long-time Launchpad users, it's absolutely astonishing how Novation managed to pack so much into the pint-sized and portable Launchpad Mini mk3. This third-gen mini Novation Launchpad Mini doesn't just pack everything Music Experience electronic musicians love about the full-sized Launchpad into a smaller footprint, it added a ton of new features and functions previously exclusive to the top-of-the-line Launchpad Pro. From production to performance, the Novation Launchpad Mini mk3 is by far the most advanced compact Ableton Live controller out there.

    Take command of Ableton Live with the Novation Launchpad Mini mk3

    The Novation Launchpad Mini mk3 carries on Novation's tradition of creating compact controllers for Ableton Live in extraordinary fashion. Since the first mini version, this controller has brought all of the best qualities of the full-sized Launchpad to a more portable and affordable format. Before we get to the fancy bells and whistles, you have to appreciate the basic functionality of this controller. The Novation Launchpad Mini mk3's matrix of 64 RGB-backlit pads, the surface reflects Live's grid display wonderfully, laying your tracks, clips, and scenes at your fingertips. Other basic functions include using the columns as faders and additional controllers, giving you full command over Live's mixer. And the Novation Launchpad Mini mk3 introduces one additional great feature: a 4-way button that lets you assign the bottom row to Stop, Mute, or Solo control for each track.

    From control surface to MIDI controller

    As powerful as the Novation Launchpad Mini mk3 is as a control surface and performance tool, it's also an amazing instrument controller. That's because the Launchpad Mini mk3 borrows some of the most popular features from the flagship Launchpad Pro. At the top of the list there's Scale mode, with lets you use the full 64-pad matrix as a kind of keyboard, with various scales highlighted to make laying down melody lines almost effortless. You can even set up a completely custom MIDI mapping to accommodate your workflow, and the included configuration software make setup easy.

    Take your Launchpad beyond Live

    Use software other than Ableton Live? Don't worry, your Launchpad Mini mk3 will still come in handy.

Best of all, switching modes is super easy, so even if you're performing live, you can use your Novation Launchpad Mini mk3 to pull off all kinds of cross-platform tricks and never miss a beat.
