Product description

style:Launchpad Pro

Novation's Launchpad Pro is the professional grid performance instrument. Create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live or any other music software. Use the enhanced 8x8 grid of RGB velocity and pressure-sensitive pads to trigger and combine clips, play dynamic beats and melodies, and even control external MIDI hardware. Novation understands the pressures of performing live. That's why they have made it as easy as possible to control Ableton Live, by building five simple modes into Launchpad Pro, which streamline everything for you. Never hit a wrong note again! With the Scale function, simply press Launchpad Pro’s Shift and Note buttons, then choose from a roster of 32 keys and modes, from major and minor, through phrygian, whole tone, bebop minor, iwato, etc. Once selected, Launchpad Pro’s 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads will assign themselves contiguously to only the notes of the selected scale, removing all the rest. Launchpad Pro is turned into a deeply expressive instrument that lets you focus on the music, rather than precise finger positions. Scale mode isn’t just for Ableton Live – you can use it to play virtual instruments in any other DAW, as well as your hardware synths. Launchpad Pro does not require connection to a computer; it can send MIDI via its 1/8th-inch output (and an included 5-pin Din adapter), so you can play external synths without a keyboard controller. Immediately trigger and combine your clips with Session Mode. Create dynamic beats and play the grid just like an instrument with Note Mode. In Dance Mode, easily apply effects to your performance, and in User Mode, create unique custom performances and layouts. The whole instrument is designed to keep you focused on your performance. It lets you easily and immediately apply effects (Device Mode), while dipping in and out of specific mixer controls at the touch of a button. Of course, if you want to get really creative, download a growing library of Max for Live devices, and control them using your Launchpad Pro. It's sleek, lightweight and tough enough that you can throw it in your bag and know it will survive even the roughest gigs. It also comes with everything you need to get started (cables and software): just plug it in and start making music. Never hit a wrong note again! With the Scale function, simply press Launchpad Pro’s Shift and Note buttons, then choose from a roster of 32 keys and modes, from major and minor, through phrygian, whole tone, bebop minor, iwato, etc. Once selected, Launchpad Pro’s 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads will assign themselves contiguously to only the notes of the selected scale, removing all the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing I've ever bought on amazon ...
By Lisa Sisino on May 6, 2017
Really great came in at least one week and I got it up and running playing beats the third day I had it . I'm 11 and really like it and it is widely recommended . Only buy it if u have a good ear for music. The software is tricky and sometimes frustrating but in the end it's a great thing and I'd highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars So Awesome I bought Two!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 7, 2018
This exceeded my expectations. I Almost didn't buy this because of the few bad reviews. So I scrutinised those reviews and noticed they had one thing in common. The people writing them had no idea what they were purchasing. Some even thought this was a toy! Ignore them. I think they thought they could plug it in and it would magically play music. lol
This is an amazing controller. It's so good I bought two - one to control and one as a visual metronome. It is so easy to set up - from Ableton live just plug it in and it's ready to go. The latest Ableton will do the rest automatically. You can either map buttons or use the default session mode to control Ableton in session view. It makes it clear what buttons are in use and what mode they are in. You can even send midi to it and use it as a visual metronome, negating the need to look at a computer screen during live performance.
For those that say it's hard to set up or too complicated...They can't have any idea how to use a DAW as this is the easiest controller to use I've come across. Especially in Ableton.
