The Launchpad S from Novation is a multi-color button controller for use with grid-based music applications such as Ableton Live and FL Studio. For the DJ, performing musician, or studio producer, the controller provides everything needed to "play" the software straight out of the box, using the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control a mixer, and more.

The unit ships with Ableton Live Launchpad Edition music software, but can also be used to trigger loops and effects in the Launchpad app for the iPad. The app for the iPad is a totally self-contained music making and performance application, not just a software control app. It hosts its own sounds and allows for triggering loops with the hardware. It is also contains a whole range of effects, including filters, stutters and drum roll-styled effects. The optional Apple Camera Connection Kit is required to use an iPad with the Launchpad S.

The controller is lightweight and portable, and fully USB bus powered from a computer, or when connected to an iPad. Full MIDI Class Compliance means it will work "plug-and-play" with virtually any Mac- or Windows-based music software using the company's Automap control software. The buttons are brighter than the previous model, along with a significantly faster refresh rate. In addition to the Ableton software, the controller comes with the Novation Bass Station plug-in and over 1GB of loops, including drums, FX and artist content, from Loopmasters.
