Keep reading to see why these controllers belong in the studio of every Ableton Live producer and music maker.
Based on the original Launchpad released 10 years ago, the Launchpad X is the latest full-size 64-pad MIDI grid controller that lets Ableton Live producers play and perform sounds, and build original tracks using the RGB pads, dynamic note and scale modes, and mixer controls. It features quick, hands-on clip and scene launching, plus one-press Capture MIDI control so you can save your ideas fast.
The Launchpad X is available now for $199.99 USD.
The Launchpad Mini [MK3] is Novation’s new portable and lightweight 64 RGB pad MIDI grid controller that allows you to launch sounds in Ableton Live anywhere you go. It features an array of sounds inside the box and a step-by-step video guide to get you set up. With its intuitive Ableton Live integration, you can see your session and all your sounds on the eight-by-eight grid, and then control your performance straight from Launchpad Mini with Stop, Solo, and Mute controls.
The Launchpad Mini is available now for $109.99 USD.
