Launchpad MINI MK3

The new Novation Launchpad Mini Mk3 is here. This incredible controller provides you with everything you need to create beats, lay down melodies, and play chords – all from a compact unit that’ll slot right into your setup. The Launchpad MINI MK3 improves on its predecessor in a multitude of ways - but keeps the essence of Launchpad at its core.

The 16 function buttons have been labelled to show you more clearly what they do. The Launchpad MINI is designed to work seamlessly with Ableton Live. And the new labels mean you can work quicker inside Ableton. Compared to the Mini MK2, the Mini MK3 has been designed with a tighter grid. Meaning the overall size of the unit is smaller - this helps its portability and takes up less space on your desk.

Is it time to upgrade your Launchpad MINI?

The Launchpad MINI is a more streamlined version of the Novation Launchpad. It's all here; the responsive and colourful pads, the incredible controls, and the fully customizable control mapping. And now with USB type C connectivity - you've never been so close to the mix.

Introducing the Launchpad X

With a selection of new features, the Novation Launchpad X is the ideal controller for bedroom producers. Streamlined hardware, an easy-to-use interface, Scale and Note modes, and even pressure-sensitive buttons.

This controller is built for performance. Nice chunky buttons provide you with a nice tactile response when making beats in the studio or on stage. It offers more tactile tools than ever - the Launchpad X allows you to spend your time working and performing, rather than clicking around with your mouse. So free yourself from the shackles of the keyboard and mouse and embrace the intuitive music-making of the Launchpad X. 

Round off your Novation set up with the amazing Launchkey

It gives you more control than ever. The superb touch strips mean you pitch bend and modulate your sound – giving you the expressive playability you'd expect from Novation.
