Launchpad Pro is the professional grid performance instrument. Create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live or any other music software. Use the enhanced 8x8 grid of RGB velocity and pressure-sensitive pads to trigger and combine clips, play dynamic beats and melodies, and even control external MIDI hardware. Novation understand the pressures of performing live. That's why they have made it as easy as possible to control Ableton Live, by building four simple modes into Launchpad Pro, which streamline everything for you:

Session Mode: immediately trigger and combine your clips
Note Mode: create dynamic beats and play the grid just like an instrument
Device Mode: easily apply effects to your performance
User Mode: create unique custom performances and layouts

The whole instrument is designed to keep you focused on your performance. It lets you easily and immediately apply effects (Device Mode), while dipping in and out of specific mixer controls at the touch of a button. Of course, if you want to get really creative, download a growing library of Max for Live devices, and control them using your Launchpad Pro.It's sleek, lightweight and tough enough that you can throw it in your bag and know it will survive even the roughest gigs. It also comes with everything you need to get started (cables and software): just plug it in and start making music.

Never hit a wrong note again! With the Scale function, simply press Launchpad Pro’s Shift and Note buttons, then choose from a roster of 32 keys and modes, from major and minor, through phrygian, whole tone and more. Once selected, Launchpad Pro’s 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads will assign themselves contiguously to only the notes of the selected scale, removing all the rest. Launchpad Pro is turned into a deeply expressive instrument that lets you focus on the music, rather than precise finger positions.

Scale mode isn’t just for Ableton Live – you can use it to play virtual instruments in any other DAW, as well as your hardware synths. Launchpad Pro does not require connection to a computer; it can send MIDI via its 1/8th-inch output (and an included 5-pin Din adapter), so you can play external synths without a keyboard controller. Comes with 4GB of Loopmasters samples. Launchpad Pro also comes with a choice from 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST.


  • Integrates seamlessly and simplifies performing in Ableton Live
  • Simply plug in and starting playing your music
  • Control just about anything including MIDI enabled devices and more
  • Drum racks are automatically laid out and illuminated
  • Easy-to-play velocity and pressure-sensitive pads

  • Immediate access to all your mixer controls mid-performance
  • Control any effect or instrument mid-performance to add expressive effects
  • Max for Live lets you use your Launchpad Pro however you like
  • Compact and light enough to throw in your bag
  • Tough enough to survive the roughest gigs
  • Comes with Ableton Live Lite music making software, 4GB of Loopmasters samples, and Bass Station and V Station plug-in synthesizers, and a choice from 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST: One full license per account gives you one Addictive Keys instrument. Pick from Modern Upright, Studio Grand, Electric Grand or Mark One.

Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

Size and layout are perfect. Drum pads have a good feel and performance is tight w/Ableton Live 9. Build is solid and it sits firmly on a flat surface. Near zero setup and user friendly layout = instant gratification plus tons of intelligent features for future uses. I think Novation has delivered a great product.

Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

Right out of the box, the LaunchPad Pro is an awesome device. It's extremely user friendly and is basically plug-and-play. When using with Ableton, it has the capabilities of controlling almost the entire DAW from the pad and can enter a variety of modes to use with drums and melodic instruments. The pads are touch sensitive and are realistic enough with the sensitivity; in all honestly, I don't think an electronic instrument will ever truly match that of real instruments nuances, but it is close enough.

My only real issues are with the construction of it. Though it plays nicely, I do think the pads will start to wear out sooner rather than later... I also had an issue with the provided USB cable: when inputting the cable into the pad itself, there was a lot of push back and was tough to get in. Additionally, when trying to remove the cable I felt like I was breaking the USB input because of how much resistance/force needed to take out the cable. I'm curious to see if other users are having this problem, or if it is specific just to my device. With that said, I can see this being a problem later on after repeated use.

Overall, I love the LaunchPad. This paired with the LaunchControl and other midi keyboards make for a great workstation where I can record almost any idea that comes in to my head.Eventually, I would like to apply this in a live setting and see how it stacks up against other similar interfaces.

I havent even played it and my minds eye has told me this is the right buy! At first it looked a bit pricy, but when I saw that it had purple and blue lights now i just had to add it to my collection. I am ready to see those lights light my world up into oblivion!! WOW!! MUCH PURPLE!! SUCH BRIGHT!!

Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

I'm more than happy with this purchase. Could not afford Push 2 but this is next best thing if your an Abelton 9 user. I got rid of my midi keyboard and just use the Pro and the Novation XL controller. All my needs are met. The new note feature makes playing melodies and bass lines a whole lot easier. I love the new touch sensitivity and the layout is simple. Big improvement from the S version. If Push 2 is too expensive this is a great alternative.


Perfect tool for solo performer / singer

Comments about Novation Launchpad Pro:

Probably the best controller for a performing singer/songwriter who wants to use something more than a synth and a mic during live performances. It has no faders / knobs BUT there is a workaround and you can control the volume super smoothly using just pads (I like it even better than the fader control now). And of course pads are velocity sensitive which was the key factor for me when I was having hard time choosing between Launchpad and APC. Love it!

Overall an amazing product. The Ableton software takes some getting used to but they provide lots of tutorials. This is probably one of the best purchases I have made.
