    Novation Launchpad S Ableton Live Controller Product Description

    The Novation Launchpad S is a powerful 64-button music controller that lets you make music or mix tracks using a super-intuitive grid of multicolor buttons.

    Launchpad S comes with Ableton Live music software (Launchpad Edition), used by some of the world's top DJs and producers -- plus it supports other grid-based music applications such as FL Studio. Whether you're a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to 'play' your software straight out of the box. Use the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control your mixer -- and much more. Launchpad S also triggers loops and effects in the Novation Launchpad app for iPad; a totally self-standing music performance app that hosts sounds and effects.

    Launchpad is totally portable. Hooked up to your computer -- or iPad -- via USB, it's fully bus powered (no need for power sockets), and it's lightweight and easy to carry anywhere.

    The Novation Launchpad iPad app

    Novation has created a Launchpad app for iPad, which is a totally self-contained music making and performance experience. This is not a software control app; it hosts its own sounds and enables you to trigger loops with your Launchpad S hardware. There is also a whole range of effects that can be triggered using Launchpad's buttons, including filters, stutters and drum roll-styled effects. They can be triggered in combination to create some incredibly powerful performance tools.

    Launchpad S -- the next generation of Launchpad

    Launchpad S is the evolution of Novation's best-selling Launchpad 64-button grid music controller -- with much brighter buttons, significantly faster refresh rate and it supports multiple software. It's MIDI Class Compliant so it works with any MIDI software on your Mac or Windows PC. It even works on your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit (not included): Launchpad S converts your iPad into a grid-based music system: no additional power supply required, just plug in and play.

    Launchpad S with FL Studio

    Launchpad S integrates with FL Studio's performance mode, so you can trigger clips and get hands-on control of FL Studio's powerful performance zone features. Use the buttons to sketch out beats with drum racks, and assign them to additional functions. You can control almost any music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software -- and Launchpad S is fully MIDI class-compliant so it'll drive any MIDI application.

    Included software

    As well as 'Ableton Live Launchpad Edition', Launchpad S comes with a software version of Novation's classic analogue mono-synth -- the Bass Station. You can use this as a plug-in within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs.

    There is also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers Loopmasters. Get started straight away with over one gigabyte of loops including drums, FX and artist content.
