The Novation Launch Control is a powerful yet delightfully compact software controller, that features easily adjustable controls for quick sound manipulation on the go. It can be used independently or as the perfect partner to Novation's hugely successful Launchpad, the Launch Control furthers the sound control capabilities that can be explored through both of these innovative products.
The Launch Control utilises 16 assignable knobs, eight tri-colour launch pads and four function keys. Each knob enables dynamic control of filters, levels and effects, offering a smooth 300 degree rotation. Each pad allows muting, activation of effects and launching clips or scenes across highly responsive trigger surfaces. Each one communicates directly with the music software for smooth, seamless control.
The beauty of the Launch Control lies within its ability to implement eight factory and eight user templates, enabling the speedy control a wide range of music software on both Mac and PC including: Cubase, FL Studio, Logic, Pro Tools and Reason. Ableton Live Lite, the V-Station polyphonic soft-synth an extensive Loopmasters sample library and Bass Station soft synth are all included, giving a huge selection of voices and sound programming options within the touch or turn of a pad or button. Thankfully, you don't even need to download any drivers.
