When Novation introduced the Launchpad to the world in 2011, Ableton Live users were finally presented with a playable, intuitive controller to bring their software and performances to life.
Continuing with a similar design, layout and formula, Novation have consistently added to the 'Launch' series over the course of the last few years to build a formidable MIDI controller lineup for Ableton Live or any Music Production Software.
Today marks the announcement of the new Launch Control XL, which features 24 rotary knobs, 8 upfaders and 16 LED-backlit buttons to give you comprehensive touch control over any parameter of Ableton. The layout is perfectly designed to match what you see on screen, so you can easily trigger an entire performance of loops or tracks as a DJ controller, or use it as a mixing controller during the production process for Volume, Panning, and effects automation.
The Launch Control XL is USB Bus Powered, so you can connect it to your PC or MAC with a single cable, and weighs less than 1 KG for truly portable performance on stage or on tour with a Launchpad S, for example.
