Whether you're a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to use your software straight out of the box. Use the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control your mixer - and much more. It comes with Ableton Live music software (Launchpad Edition), used by some of the world's top DJs and producers. Launchpad S also triggers loops and effects in the new Novation Launchpad app for iPad.
Launchpad S - the next generation of Launchpad
Launchpad is totally portable. Hooked up to your computer - or iPad - via USB, it's fully bus powered (no need for power sockets), and it's lightweight and easy to carry anywhere. Launchpad S is MIDI Class Compliant so it works with any MIDI software on your Mac or Windows PC and works on your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit (not included): Launchpad S converts your iPad into a grid-based music system - no additional power supply required, just plug in and play.
Novation Launchpad iPad® app
Novation has created a Launchpad app for iPad, which is a totally self-contained music making and performance experience. This is not a software control app, it hosts its own sounds and enables you to trigger loops with your Launchpad S hardware. There is also a whole range of effects that can be triggered using Launchpad's buttons, including filters, stutters and drum roll-styled effects. They can be triggered in combination to create some incredibly powerful performances.
Launchpad S and FL Studio
Launchpad S integrates with FL Studio's performance mode, so you can trigger clips and get hands-on control of FL Studio's powerful new performance zone features. Use the buttons to sketch out beats with drum racks, and assign them to additional functions. You can control almost any music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software - and Launchpad S is fully MIDI class-compliant so it'll drive any MIDI application.
As well as 'Ableton Live Launchpad Edition', Launchpad S comes with a software version of Novation's classic analogue mono-synth - the Bass Station. You can use this as a plug-in within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs. There is also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers - Loopmasters. Get started straight away with over one gigabyte of loops including drums, FX and artist content.
