The Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 Controller is a dynamic MIDI controller designed for electronic music production. Featuring RGB backlit pads, Scribble Strips for easy identification, and seamless integration with Ableton Live, the Launchpad Pro MK3 provides an intuitive interface for crafting professional tracks. With 64 velocity sensitive pads, the Launchpad Pro MK3 allows you to launch clips, create beats, play notes and more. Assign different colors to tracks, loops or sounds for an informative overview of your project at a glance. The Scribble Strips display the name and color of each track, so you'll never lose your place.

Seamless Integration With Ableton Live

The Launchpad Pro MK3 was designed to work flawlessly with Ableton Live. Dedicated buttons allow you to capture MIDI, undo/redo actions, quantize and more, directly from the hardware. The Launchpad Pro MK3 automatically maps to Ableton Live for a seamless setup. Switch between Session Mode and Note Mode at the touch of a button. In Session Mode, launch clips and create arrangements, while Note Mode transforms the Launchpad Pro MK3 into a 64-note keyboard. The tight integration with Ableton Live makes production more intuitive than ever before.

Dynamic, Expressive Pads

The Launchpad Pro MK3 features 64 RGB backlit pads that light up to match the color of your tracks. The pads are also velocity-sensitive, allowing for dynamic and expressive performances. Assign different velocities to control pitch bend, modulation or any other parameter. The customizable brightness levels ensure the perfect visual experience for any environment.

Advanced Connectivity

On the rear panel, the Launchpad Pro MK3 provides a USB port for connecting to your computer, as well as MIDI in and out ports for controlling external hardware. The MK3 model upgrades the original Launchpad Pro with improved pads, brighter LEDs and USB-C connectivity for fast setup. Power your Launchpad Pro MK3 via the included USB cable, with no need for an additional power adapter.

Creative Control at Your Fingertips

With the Launchpad Pro MK3, all elements of your production are at your fingertips. Launch clips, play drum racks, tweak faders and knobs, apply FX, capture MIDI, undo actions, quantize and more — all without touching your mouse. The tight integration with Ableton Live provides visual feedback to keep you in the creative flow. For electronic music producers, the Launchpad Pro MK3 is the ultimate MIDI controller for composition and performance.
