With a multi-colour 64-button grid and dedicated scene launch buttons, the Launchpad Controller is purpose built for triggering and manipulating clips in Live, it also offers a totally new way of controlling Ableton Live’s mixer. Launchpad's buttons can be used to sketch out beats with drum racks, and they can be assigned to other functions in Live using Ableton's 'Learn' mode.
Novation Launchpad ships with a dedicated ‘Launchpad edition’ of Ableton Live 8, but can control almost any other music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software.

AWESOME LIVE/PRODUCTION TOOL

If you have Live, then there's always the intention of using sample pads and making full use of the grid view.
And with this controller/drum pad/midi input/cc input/crazy freaking, lightshow box that links seamlessly through Novation’s ridiculously handy auto-map software creating endless possibilities if you put the time into it, it’s all there.
If I told you my 5-year old niece has an amazing time playing with this thing, would u believe it was easy to figure out?
If only I had another one...
P.S. Anyone remember lights out?
Perfect for samples in a live set!

I've used these whilst DJing live to trigger samples into a set, probably one of the most fluid pieces of gear and works so seamlessly and effortlessly with Ableton. Easy for beginners to use, and master! Madeon uses one of these within his live setup! If it's good enough for the pro's then why not you! Best investment you can make, if you're a producer who gigs.

This is one of the best controllers going. It’s so easy to use once you’re used to it and it’s great for coming up with some brilliant beats on, etc.
Sturdy, portable but quite complicated!

Very good, seems quite complicated however! I'd suggest only to buy if you have previous experience of using Live or have the time and patience to get to grips with it, however apart from that a very portable, compact piece of equipment.

King of mash-ups and remixes

The launchpad is a brilliantly designed piece of kit made to work seamlessly with Ableton Live. The LED grid allows for triggering of single samples of entire rows/columns. With the right mind, some samples and a bit of time the Launchpad is perfect for making mash-ups and remixes of songs, as can be seen on the internet.
Easy and intuitive to use as well, even the most basic of beginners will find it fun to play with and be making tracks in no time.
