Start creating immediately
The Launchpad X is designed to encourage your creativity, whether you’ve been producing for years or taking your first steps into music. An online Easy Start tool is provided from Novation, offering step by step guides to all aspects of the Launchpad X. These easy to follow instructions begin with setting up your controller with the included Ableton Live Lite. The guides continue through every aspect of the Launchpad X, ensuring you understand the controller's capabilities completely. By the time the Easy Start tool is finished, you will be ready to turn your ideas into musical masterpieces with the Launchpad X.
More hands-on than ever
Offering more tangible musical tools than ever, the Launchpad X allows you to spend more time working and performing than clicking around with your mouse - which as you know can get tedious. Launchpad X helps you put the fun back into music. The 64 RGB velocity and pressure-sensitive pads make for an extremely expressive grid, whilst drum and note modes help you switch between percussion and melodic instrumentation control. Simply and effortlessly. Meaning you can easily make music on the fly whilst still recording - helping get your ideas down into Ableton incredibly quickly.
Customise to suit your workflow
The Launchpad X helps you work the way you want. Novation components allows you to customise MIDI mapping. This allows you to assign almost anything to different components on the Launchpad X. Four custom modes allow you to setup multiple working configurations on the Launchpad X, easily accessible for quick mode switching.
Additional performance controls
The Launchpad X stands out from the crowd because of independent controls for key production functions. Stop, solo, mute, levels, pans and sends all have dedicated controls on the Launchpad X. This can vastly improve workflow by saving time scrolling through various menus.
Always in key
You will never hit a wrong note with the fantastic Scale Mode. New to the Launchpad series, the Scale Mode filters out all the erroneous notes that are not in the key you have selected. This means you can easily capture your music without fear of messing up. The Capture MIDI button records every note you pressed recently meaning you can make music without constantly staring at the screen.
