Novation Launchpad S Controller USB MIDI iOS

USB/MIDI keyboard controller with 61 keys and 16 touch-sensitive, multi-colour trigger pads.

MIDI class compliant – for limitless access to all modern DAWs.

Includes extensive software bundle with sequencer software, synthesizer and sample pack.

Novation's Launchpad is a powerful 64-key controller. Regardless of whether you're making music or mixing tracks, the super intuitive grids with multi-colour keys give you direct access to everything.

The Launchpad S is a redevelopment of Novation's successful 64-key Launchpad controller. Launchpad 2 offers brighter keys, a much faster refresh rate and supports more software applications. As the controller is MIDI class compliant, it works with MIDI software on your computer. The Launchpad S also functions on your iPad via the camera connection kit. Launchpad S turns your iPad into a grid-based music system. Thanks its bus power supply, you won't need any external power adapter.

The Launchpad S USB controller comes shipped with the Ableton Live (Launchpad Edition) software used by leading producers and DJs around the world. Alongside Ableton Live, Launchpad S also works with other grid-based software such as FL Studio.

Novation has developed the Launchpad app for the iPad to let you make music or hit the stage without the need for any Novation hardware. The Launchpad app is not a software control app. It offers its own sounds and allows you to trigger loops even without Launchpad S hardware. In addition, you have a wide range of effects that can be triggered with the Launchpad keys, such as filter, stutter and drum rolls.

The Novation controller integrates seamlessly into the FL Studio performance mode so that you can trigger clips and have simultaneous access to the nine zone features. Use the keys to create new beats in the drum racks. Of course, you can also assign other functions to the keys. As the Launchpad S works with the Novation Automap control software and is fully MIDI class compliant, you also use it with any other MIDI application.
