Novation LaunchPad Control Surface  - Information

Novation Launchpad was jointly designed by both Ableton and Novation to offer a highly affordable hardware control surface for the Ableton software DAW. Novation LaunchPad is a USB Midi Controller that puts control of Ableton Live right at your fingertips. Whether you’re a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Novation Launch-Pad gives you all you need to truly ‘play' Ableto 'Live'.

Novation Launchpad features a multi-colour 64-button grid and dedicated scene launch buttons. Launchpad is purpose built for triggering and manipulating clips in Live, it also offers a totally new way of controlling Ableton Live’s mixer. Launchpad's buttons can be used to sketch out beats with drum racks, and they can be assigned to other functions in Live using Ableton's 'Learn' mode. Novation Launchpad also ships with a dedicated ‘Launchpad edition’ of Ableton Live 8, but can control almost any other music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software.

Ableton Max is a visual programming environment which allows you to custom build instruments and effects for Live 8. Ableton announced 'Max for Live' when they launched Live 8. Max and Ableton Live are now integrated, so you can build your own instruments (or tweak other people's) within Live.

Novation Launchpad can also be used to control these instruments, created within Max for Live. For example, parameters on Max for Live's step sequencer can be triggered using Launchpad's buttons. Launchpad gives you a huge amount of visual feedback. Multiple colours and brightnesses across different buttons display visual information about whether the note is on, the velocity, note length, pitch, and whatever else you want to see!

Novation have also created a Max for Live step sequencer patch utlising Launchpad’s multi-colour and brightness variations, available to download from NovationMusic.com.
