Novation: Launchpad MKII Mark 2 Midi Controller

Publisher: Focusrite/Novation

The Novation Launchpad MKII Mark 2 Midi Controller features RGB LEDs, offering even more intuitive access to Ableton's unique workflow. Beyond the cosmetic is deep and natural integration with every part of the process allowing you to launch clips, mute, mix and play drums without breaking your creative stride.

If you use Ableton Live, you need a Launchpad. The Novation: Launchpad MKII Mark 2 Midi Controller is an evolution of the ubiquitous Launchpad, the Ableton Live controller that re-defined the way we perform music with computers. Its 8 x 8 grid of pads has become ubiquitous with the evolution of electronic music, letting you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer, all while creating awesome lightshows.

Launchpad integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup. The pads are lit by RGB LEDs, which match the colour of your clips in your session view, so you can see at a glance what's playing. You can use them to launch clips, play drums, start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends - and anything else you can imagine with Max for Live.

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 link it up with more Launchpads or other Launch products to build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio, by combining Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey.

Complete with Ableton Live Lite, 1GB of pro-quality Loopmasters samples and the Novation Bass Station VST and AU plug-in synthesiser, the Novation: Launchpad MKII Mark 2 Midi Controller comes with everything you need to start making great music. It also supports Novation Launchpad App, so you can use its RGB pads with your iPad too.
