Logic 10.6 compatibility
The latest Logic Pro Update (10.6) guarantees full compatibility between the MK3 and Live Loops. This means you'll be able to use the controller to trigger sounds, navigate your way through complex sessions and have a greater "hands-on" approach when producing and performing. The all-new custom mode allows you to map the grid to suit your every want and need, you can even create your own unique performance set-ups. These can be configured using Novation Components which can be accessed via Google Chrome or through the standalone app.
Built for Ableton Live
The ultimate production tool. The Launchpad Pro is Novation’s most powerful grid controller to date and offers seamless integration with Ableton Live and other audio hardware. Providing a platform to make music, your creative process will never be the same again. The Launchpad Pro has been optimised for working within Ableton Live. Use the controller to launch clips and scenes, access mixer, device and transport controls and quantise. Duplicate and double without having to touch your mouse. One-click access to Ableton’s Capture MIDI function ensures you can record your ideas as soon as you create them.
Take your tracks to new heights with the four-track, eight-note polyphonic, 32-step standalone sequencer. The Launchpad Pro helps take your eyes away from the screen by allowing you to sequence virtual instruments and instantly print these to Clips in Ableton Live. Your favourite hardware can be easily connected to play MIDI patterns. Micro Steps take grooves off-grid. Probability, Mutate, Sync Rate and Play Order let you transform your patterns on the fly. Patterns can be chained, edited and assigned to build complete songs.
Enhance your playing
The Launchpad Pro offers the best functionality and playability of Novation controllers to date. The velocity and pressure-sensitive pads are bigger and more responsive than ever. This creates a perfect platform for playing grooves and launching clips. Scale mode locks pads to a musical key so every note is a perfect fit for your song. Chord mode is a great tool for building harmonies.
Customise the Launchpad Pro
Custom modes transform the Launchpad Pro into a hands-on control surface for any MIDI-compatible software or hardware. This allows you to create a controller that fits your production and performance style. This is done within Novation Components, the configuration software that allows you to drop widgets into place and save settings as one of eight custom modes. These can then be used even when disconnected from the computer.

Whether you’re working with a computer or standalone, the Launchpad Pro provides the tools to create music. Connect to a full hardware rig using MIDI In, Out and Out 2/Thru ports on 3.5mm connectors. To ensure you get the best from your Launchpad Pro, the Easy Start Tool tailors the configuration process to your setup so you can start making music as quick as possible.
