Launch Control is a robust, compact and portable control panel with 16 assignable knobs and eight pads that's ideal for hands-on control of mixers, instruments and effects. Perfectly designed to partner with the Novation Launchpad, Launch Control works with all major music software - and with the iPad. Launch Control's three colour pads can be used to fire off samples and scenes, while the knobs can tweak filters, change levels, adjust panning, effects sends and more.

In addition to its stand-alone capability as a compact control surface, Launch Control is the perfect partner for Novation's Launchpad, the controller that changed the face of modern music performance with its grid of 64 three colored pads. To Launchpad, Launch Control adds 16 knobs, enabling you to transform performances and studio workflow - and another eight three colour buttons. With Ableton Live and other software packages, Launch Control delivers hands-on control of devices for a wide range of real-time performance enhancements.

With the iPad, Launch Control can be used out of the box with the Launchpad app to trigger samples and effects. Launch Control connects direct to the iPad with the Apple Camera Connecting Kit (not included) and is entirely bus powered, avoiding a mains power supply. The Launchpad app allows control of samples with Launch Control's pads, while using the knobs to tweak filters and change levels to provide a compact and impressive portable performance system.

Launch Control also works with all the major music software on Mac and PC and is fully class-compliant, controlling MIDI-compatible software like Cubase, Reason, Logic and FL Studio with no need for drivers. Both Ableton Live Lite and an extensive Loopmasters sample pack are included.
Launch Control's 16 knobs and eight launch pads can be set up with templates that let you change them to control different software parameters. There are eight factory templates and eight of your own to create and play, whatever your choice of software, giving an effective arsenal of up to 448 controls.

  • The perfect partner for Novation Launchpad
  • Launch Control with your iPad

It's such a great idea, but they are not great in the field.

Comments about Novation Launch Control:

I'm running 2 of these custom setup with Ableton Live 9 (Mac, Powered USB Hub). I love the feel and functionality - when it works. The included Software works well, but the controllers are constantly "forgetting" and having to be rebooted (long press of 'user' button) mid-song. Sometimes I have to unplug them, too. It is scary to think of using these together on stage. If I go into MIDI mode in Ableton, it's always an automatic reboot needed. When I just used a single launch-pad on gigs, I had better luck, though it did occasionally need to be rebooted as well. I'm looking to replace these with something more reliable.

Even better than I thought

Comments about Novation Launch Control:

I've been through a number of different controllers. The flexibility with Launch Control is perfect. Make sure your DAW is up to date though. I still need to update to Ableton 9 Live in order to use the banks, but I've been using it FL Studio and I've noticed I actually use the factory presets. The banks for the is controller really are as easy to use as pressing a button.
