Novation Launch Control Reviews

Opens new ways to jam

Wow this has transformed the way I use Ableton. I am using it in conjunction with Isotonik's Launch Control XXL script and it lets me use all the pots to MIDI control 24 parameters per instrument or effect. So fun.

Great product

Great for programming all sorts of performance controls for Ableton Live.

Plays Well with All Software, Does a Lot, Looks Great

I like my Launch Control XL a lot. It works seamlessly with my DAWs (Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton), as well as with my VJ software (Resolume). It was fast and simple to configure. Faders, buttons, and encoders work as they should. The faders are fine but not as smooth as on more expensive controllers with 100 mm faders (maybe an unfair comparison). On a subjective level, I like the colors and the design - plus the $$price is nice! - I recommend this controller.

Good MIDI controller for the money

I use controllers from Livid Technologies for my studio but they dont seem to make the DS1 anymore (or any of the gear on the website).  In expanding my setup I needed more controls and buttons so I gave this unit a try.  Overall I am happy with the XL.  The knobs and slide Potentiometers have smooth and professional feel.  The knobs do have a slight center stop and the sliders are slightly stiff but almost as nice as the ones Livid has.  The driver works well with Windows 10 and required no extra software or drivers.  I use the device with MAX 8 and works great.

so is this the one that is compatible with Lightroom?
Asked by: Maung
The Novation Launch Controller is not recommended for photography software. However, we do carry this item (LOUPEDECK) Loupedeck Photo Editing Console for Lightroom 6 & CC that is recommended.

question

Is the software that comes with this a trial version? I'm thinking of getting it as a gift for my musically inclined son but don't want to spend $800 on the full Live version.
Asked by: Jim C.
No it is not... It is a simpler version but fully functional... But consider buying launch pad also...It will be far more usefull to have both... The launch pad s is very inexpensive.

question

the Novation launch control that I bought a year ago loses its software connection after several minutes and needs to be re-plugged in to start working again. Has this been fixed by now by the manufacturer?
