Novation Launch Control
Compact controller for Ableton Live and other MIDI-compatible software.

Whether you’re producing electronic music in the studio or taking it to the stage, you’ll have way more fun doing it with Novation’s Launch Control. Its 16 chunky knobs and eight multi-coloured pads let you take hands-on command of every aspect of Ableton Live (or any other DAW) and all your virtual instruments and effects. And with the ability to switch between 16 banks, those numbers rise to a whopping 448 controls in total – in a unit half the size of the Launch Control XL! 
Focus on Your Performance
Staring unwaveringly at a screen not only makes for a poor performance but is bad for your eyes, too. Novation designed Launch Control to help you maximise your creativity, putting more DAW and plug-in control than you’ll probably ever need at your fingertips, in a portable, easy-to-use device that won’t even begin to break the bank.
     The 16 sturdy, full-sized knobs feel great to hold and turn, and each is surrounded by its own multi-coloured LED collar for visual feedback on assigned parameter values. The pads are no less exceptional, either: big and satisfyingly rubbery, they also give clear feedback via their bright multi-coloured LED backlights, and are perfect for triggering clips, performing drum and percussion parts, and even playing synths.

Create Your Own Layouts from 448 Controls
Should the Launch Control’s 16 knobs and eight pads not be enough to serve your particular production or performance needs, its 16 banks enable you to effectively multiply them up to 256 knobs and 128 pads.
     Every one of those controls can be assigned to any virtual knob, slider or button in Ableton Live (or any other major music software), and switching between your own mappings and the factory templates is done at the press of a button.

Enhance Your Live Performance
Partner the Launch Control with Novation’s Launchpad for the ultimate Ableton Live performance setup. Trigger clips, play Drum Racks and control Live’s mixer, effects and instruments, all at the same time!

Easily Carry It Around
With its small, tidy footprint, the Launch Control easily fits in your laptop bag, while the tough, uncompromising build quality will see it through the most demanding live gigs. And being USB bus powered and fully class compliant, all you have to do to get it up and running is plug it in – no power supply or drivers required.

Connect to Just About Anything
Launch Control works with any modern Mac, PC or iOS device (via a Camera Connection Kit, not included), and integrates automatically and seamlessly with Ableton Live and FL Studio. It's also a snap to set up for use with any other MIDI-compatible software – just assign the preconfigured Continuous Controller numbers output by each knob and pad via your application’s MIDI learn system.
