Novation Launchpad S USB MIDI Controller for Ableton Live
Novation's Launchpad S controller for Ableton sports brighter, faster buttons. But the big news is that it's Core MIDI compliant and can be powered by your iPad, letting you take advantage of current and future iOS-compatible music-making apps. You still get 72 trigger buttons, making the Launchpad an amazing companion to Live's Session View. You also get dedicated buttons for launching scenes. If you don't use Live, go ahead and use Launchpad S to map out the controls however you want; it includes Novation's renowned Automap software. Feeling trigger-happy? Novation's Launchpad S is just what you need.
Control Session View or Feng Shui your mix
While the Novation Launchpad S is a majorly cool tool for using Live's Session View, thanks to its massive clip-triggering section, you can also use it to control your mix. Take innovative control over your volume, pans, sends, record arming, soloing, and mutin. Use Launchpad S's buttons to instantly jump to different levels across eight channels at once.
Automap software takes the headache out of mapping
Another big Novation Launchpad S bonus is that it's enabled to work with Novation's Automap software, so you can take instant, intelligent control over VST, AU, RTAS, and TDM plug-ins, as well as an increasing number of standalone samplers and step-sequencers. Automap provides a heads-up transparent display across your computer screen, so you've got at-a-glance recognition of what you're controlling. And you can assign and re-assign parameters with just a quick click and a tap.
An amazing value, for all it does
Offering up major Ableton Live control over clips, scenes, and iOS apps, too - not to mention all-around MIDI-mappable mayhem - the Launchpad S is a huge value at this low price. Thanks, Novation!
