Novation's Launch Series controllers continually deliver on the promise of offering sophisticated hands-on control across a delightfully intuitive playing surface. The new Launch Control XL combines the greatest features of previous devices into a single unit to create the ultimate mixer and device controller for Ableton Live.
At you fingertips are eight 60mm faders, 16 multi-colour performance buttons, and 24 fully customisable LED-enhanced knobs. The rugged faders offer high-precision control, which are MIDI re-mappable to envelopes, filters and/or anything you like. Each button allows muting, activation of effects and launching clips or scenes across highly responsive trigger surfaces. Each knob enables dynamic control of filters, levels and effects, offering a smooth rotation. Each one communicates directly with the music software for smooth, seamless control.
The Launch Control XL is an excellent piece of kit all by itself, but used in tandem with Launchpad S’s powerful 64-button grid, a universe of performance possibilities are unleashed. Whether you're triggering clips in the session view or playing drum racks with satisfying LED feedback; Launch Control XL aligns perfectly with Launchpad S's peerless 8x8 surface.
For those who prefer to put their own stamp on their equipment, the software edition with Launch Control XL allows you to modify and design your own templates. You can customise knobs with your own colours, whilst switching between your own mappings and Ableton's with the greatest of ease.
The Launch Control XL is plug and play compatible with a wide range of Mac and PC including: Cubase, FL Studio, Logic, Pro Tools and Reason. Ableton Live Lite and a 1GB Loopmasters’ sample library are 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.
As with all Novation products, the Launch Control XL is lightweight but built like a tank. The delicate dimensions means that it'll discreetly tuck away into you backpack, and as it's USB powered you can simply plug it into your computer and you're good to go.
Whether you're a bedroom enthusiast or a pro that takes to the stage on a regular basis, the Launch Control XL offers unparalleled control over your performance. The only thing that could possibly hold you back is your own imagination!
