If you use Ableton Live or any other major DAW for that matter, you need a Launchpad. Its 8 x 8 grid has become ubiquitous with the evolution of electronic music, letting you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer, all while creating impressive lightshows.
Launchpad’s 64 pads integrate immediately with Ableton Live. They’re also lit by RGB LEDS, which match the colour of your clips – so you can see at a glance what clips are loaded, playing or recording.
Throw It in Your Bag
Launchpad is totally portable: lightweight, easy to pack and carry around, and fully USB bus powered – so there’s no need for power sockets. You can also combine it with more Launchpads or other Launch products to build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio. Just add Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey.
