What Is The Launchpad X?

In short: the Launchpad X is the essential grid controller for the Ableton Live DAW.

Designed for expressive instrument performance, each of the RGB-backlit 8x8 pads feature velocity and pressure sensitivity, allowing you to capture each and every nuance of your playing.

Launchpad X also features a dedicated Record & Capture MIDI button, allowing you to take note of your ideas on the fly.

Ableton Live Integration

A new function for the Launchpad X - Note Mode - will allow you to choose between 16 different scales, scale/chromatic layout, root note, and pad overlap.

In addition to this, Note Mode also dynamically reacts to Ableton Live's loaded instrument by switching to a Drum Rack layout.

Not only that, but the RGB LEDs behind the pads on the Launchpad X perfectly match up with your Ableton Live session, letting you know exactly which clips you will be launching.

Total Performance Control

In Mixer Mode, the Launchpad X presents you with complete control over your performance.

This takes shape by way of virtual, velocity-sensitive faders, allowing you to take control of track Volumes, Pans, and Sends.

In addition to this, Mixer Mode also offers toggle controls for Stop, Solo, Mute, and Record Arm, which discretely take up the grids bottom row.

Create Your Own Mappings

With its four powerful custom modes, you can use the Launchpad X to send CCs, notes, and even program change messages from the grid to the software of your choice.

Thanks to the easy to use editor in Novation Components, you can also create your own mappings with ease.

Sleek New Look

In celebration of the Launchpad's 10th Anniversary, Novation of have revisited the iconic controller's "grid" aesthetic.

This interactive new Easy Start Tool offers several packs covering popular genres, each of which can be loaded for instant performance on your Launchpad X, with no setup required.
