Epic Hands-on Control for Live and More!If you've always wanted to be able to reach out and touch your Ableton Live sets or grab hold of FL Studio's performance grid, then Novation's Launchpad performance controller is your ticket to breaking down the barrier between your creativity and your DAW. It's loaded with a matrix of 64 backlit pads, each of which sorts its own RGB LED so it can match the color of your clips or tracks. These pads are perfect for launching clips and triggering samples, but you can also use them to adjust levels, pans, sends, and other mixer controls.
Want to take your Launchpad on the road? No problem! For starters, it weighs next to nothing, and although the pads are large enough to be comfortable to play with, the entire controller won't hog too much room in your laptop bag. And you don't even need a laptop, if you prefer to make tunes on your iPad instead. Cooler still, the Launchpad is totally bus powered, but you wouldn't think it, considering how bright those LEDs are. On top of that, if you want to build on to your rig, all you need are more Launchpads or other Launch series controllers, and you can lay out all of the hands-on control you need. Round out the package with a copy of Ableton Live Lite and other goodies, and you just can't beat the value and convenience the Novation Launchpad offers.
