Focus on Your Music Production
Spend less time peering at your screen by using hands-on controls that integrate seamlessly with Ableton Live. The 24 knobs are arranged in three rows, which align perfectly with Ableton Live’s mixer. They also have multicoloured LEDs that illuminate to distinguish between sends, EQs or any other device. Eight rugged 60mm faders offer high-precision control over your levels, while 16 multi-colour pads offer immediate track focus and mixer control.

Create Your Own Control Layouts
Assign your buttons, knobs and faders to any parameters within Abelton too make your very own layouts. You can even customize knobs with your own colors and switch between your own mappings and Live's built-in functionality. Crafting the perfect mix has never been easier!

Enhance Your Live Performance
Experience an unprecedented level of freedom when playing live, by combining with a Launchpad to control Abletons’s session view. Trigger clips, play drum racks, and control your mixer, effects and instruments all at the same time. You can even combine multiple units for some serious modular mayhem!

Easily Carry It Around
Tough, slim and designed for gigging, you can slip Launch Control XL into your backpack and put it through the most demanding live situations. It’s also fully USB bus powered, so you can plug in and play without even needing a power supply.

Connect to Just About Anything
Simply plug into Mac, Windows or iOS and start performing. You can even control all MIDI-compatible iOS music software; all you need is a Camera Connection Kit.

Control Just About Anything
Launch Control XL is HUI enabled. Simply plug into Logic, Cubase or ProTools and start controlling. You can even control hardware directly, as Launch Control XL works standalone; all you need is a MIDI USB host, a little box that converts USB MIDI to plain, ordinary, house or garden MIDI (sold separately).

    Super awesome product, easy to use. Really nice being able to edit my settings with real knobs rather than using a mouse. Fine tuning is super simple and setting up is better. taking this guy out to gigs makes things so much easy with editing on the fly and mixing

    Great Controller for Ableton!

    Pros

    • Fully Programmable!

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Production in Ableton

      The Launch Control XL is a great controller for either production inside of Ableton or for controlling Ableton at a live show. It has tons of knobs, faders, and buttons onboard and everything is mappable inside of Ableton. If you run live loops from Ableton and don't have the budget for a Push, then this is he controller to go with. I am a verified Sam Ash Reviewer.

        Never Use Your Mouse Again

        By 

        from Edison, NJ

        Staff Reviewer

        One of my biggest pet peeves of recording is having to use a mouse to adjust any parameters on my music. The Launch Control XL basically eliminates all of that headache. Automaps to ableton but will work with any program do that you now have physical knobs and faders to control your sound. Small and portable.

          Great Inexpensive Controller

          By 

          from Canoga Park, CA

          Staff Reviewer

          This little guy is marketed as a controller for Ableton, and while it's true that it connects instantly with that DAW, don't neglect the fact that it can control just about any DAW. So if you're looking for an external controller for Pro Tools, Logic, etc., this will do it, and at a price that none of the other fader controls can tough. A great product for a home studio, especially if desk real estate is at a premium.

            As an Ableton user, the Launch Control XL has been a savior. Easily integrates with Ableton, and saves me from a ton of mouse clicking and dragging while do mix downs. Easily installs and sets up within minutes. The faders feel great compared to other controller in this price range. Still compact enough to take on the road for studio work or a live performance. Also easily MIDI maps to almost any DAW on the market. A must for anyone working "in the box".
