Novation LAUNCHPAD-PRO overview

  • 1Description

The Launchpad Pro from Novation is a MIDI controller and grid instrument that creates dynamic, expressive musical performances. Designed for Ableton Live, the Launchpad will work equally as well with any DAW or hardware MIDI device. The enhanced RGB LED backlit pads are velocity- and pressure-sensitive and provide fluid expression and creativity to production and performance. The layout is designed to keep your focus on the performance by easily and immediately applying effects, changing between mixer controls, and switching between four key modes including Session, Note, Device, and User.

The Session mode gives direct access to triggering clips, while the Note mode allows for the creation of dynamic beats and offers the ability to play the grid as an instrument with its chromatic keyboard display. The device mode provides access to any instrument or device parameters for easy real-time control and performance. The User mode is designed for custom performance layouts for software and hardware alike. There are dedicated buttons to control record arm, track select, mute, solo, volume, pan, sends, and stop clips.  Additionally, there are dedicated function controls including click, undo, delete, quantize, duplicate, and double.

The mixer offers control of all volume, pan, and effects sends and is velocity sensitive, allowing for smooth transitions or instantaneous changes depending how hard a pad is played. There is MIDI in and out provided by the included 1/8" / 3.5mm to 5-pin DIN cables, which connect to any MIDI hardware device such as a synthesizer or drum machine. The Launchpad is bus powered, but may also be powered by the included AC adapter for stand-alone operation. The Launchpad Pro ships with Ableton Live Lite, 4 GB of Loopmaster sounds & samples, and the Novation Bass Station & V-Station plug-in synthesizers.

    Novation LAUNCHPAD-PRO reviews

    Launchpad Pro MIDI Controller and Grid Instrument is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is awesome The Launchpad Pro is amazing. For a very reasonable price, it is solidly built, and works great. The learning curve is steep for someone who has never used a midi device before, but the outcome is great. I was able to make a full set of samples after using this for a few hours, and now in my third day of using it I am doing even more complex things such as programming lights and user mode. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is looking to have some fun and even perform live with a super flexible midi controller.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended Great build quality. Much improved over the original Launchpad series. Great alternative to the Ableton Push 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from And incredible instrument for any style of music I've been using Ableton for at least 10 years and have owned the old Launchpad S since around 2013. It was a fun addition to the Ableton Live workflow, but I didn't find myself using it much as it was best for just triggering clips. You could use it to actually lay down notes and rhythms, but the buttons didn't feel that great, there was no velocity or aftertouch, and the visual feedback was lacking. Basically, my 88-key keyboard was better for that, so the Launchpad S got little use as an actual instrument. The Launchpad Pro improves on the original Launchpad exponentially. When I first hooked it up and loaded a grand piano VST, I was seriously amazed at the velocity sensitivity and overall feel of the pads. I can play piano on this and it's as dynamic as if I had played in on my keyboard controller. There are no unexpectedly loud or quiet notes - it just reacts exactly as it should, with a nice wide dynamic range. The first thing I though was "this may actually replace my keyboard controller completely." The other standout feature is the scales mode. A lot of people view this as a way for people with little theory knowledge to "cheat", and I would have to disagree with that. I have an in-depth understanding of music theory, and that really lets me take full advantage of the scales mode. With 32 scales built in, you've got easy access to all 7 modes as well as a large palette of more exotic scales. The adjustable overlap lets you set it up exactly like an Ableton Push, if that's what you want. Cutting out the out-of-key notes and displaying the in-key notes in a grid format is just immensely powerful and inspiring. With the addition of the RGB lights and the additional function buttons, this thing is (dare I say it) BETTER than a Push, and at less than half the price. It cuts out all of the unneeded complexity of the Push, gives you what you need to get the job done, and is a truly inspiring device. As a musician, I couldn't ask for more.
