If you want a simple way to create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live, check out the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller. Designed for live performance, the Launchpad Pro's velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads light up to match the color of your clips in Ableton Live's session view, making it easy to see which clips are playing in the midst of a performance. Drums spread across the whole grid, while instruments illuminate as a chromatic keyboard, making it ridiculously intuitive to create beats and play notes, melodies, and chords. The electronic musicians at Music Experience will tell you: the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller is primed to take your music to new heights of creative expression!
You'll love the phenomenal playability of the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller's Standalone Mode. Whether you're using music software or external hardware, the Launchpad Pro is as musically playable a keyboard. You can connect the Launchpad Pro to your DAW for an intuitively creative experience, or connect its MIDI ports to your Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid. The only limit is your imagination!
In addition to its remarkable playability, the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller also gives you quick, immediate access to all of your mixer controls. This lets you change settings in the midst of a performance without losing your flow. There's no separate mixer mode to hamper your creativity - simply press and hold a button, make a change, release the button, and drop straight back to your performance. It really is that easy!
The Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller gives you absolute control over your effects, instruments, and plug-ins, letting you add engaging, expressive effects mid-performance. It's child's play to create ultra-smooth transitions with the Launchpad Pro, as its button grid also turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders complete with LED feedback. The harder you hit the pad, the faster the transition! Plus, Scale Mode lets Live-based producers effortlessly play and record bass lines, melodies, chords, and leads, all perfectly in key.

Launchpad Pro is the simplest and best way to create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live, or any music software. We've given our iconic Launchpad a total overhaul. Enhanced with RGB LED feedback, and velocity and pressure-sensitive pads, Launchpad Pro brings limitless expression and creativity to your music.
You can use the grid to play any of your music software and external hardware too - with Standalone Mode. It doesn't matter which software you are using: plug it straight into Logic Pro, for example, and play it like a keyboard; connect the MIDI ports to your Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid. The possibilities are endless.
Launchpad Pro is much more than an instrument: it also gives you slick, immediate access to all your mixer controls mid-performance, so you stay in your flow. There?s no need to enter a separate mixer mode; simply press and hold a mixer function button (like mute or volume), make a change, and then release the button to drop straight back into your performance.
Press the Note and Shift buttons to switch Launchpad Pro to Scale Mode. The pads automatically assign themselves to the notes of one of 32 keys and modes, making it impossible to play out of key. Seven Overlap options enable the relative positioning of notes on each row to be offset, while Chromatic 4th Mode keeps the pads assigned to the chromatic series but highlights the notes of the selected scale or mode within it.
Control your effects, instrument devices and plug-ins mid-performance to add engaging, expressive effects. For super smooth effect transitions, the button grid also turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders, with LED feedback - the harder you hit the pad, the faster the transition.
Launchpad Pro is just as sleek, lightweight and tough as the rest of our Launch range and can be chained to multiple other Launch products, or connected to the rest of your studio or live setup. It comes with everything you need to get started, including cables and software, and can be bus-powered over USB. It?s also class compliant and doesn't need any drivers; just install the software, plug in and start performing.
The Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller will take your music to new heights of creative expression!
