Launchpad integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup. The pads are lit by RGB LEDs, which match the color of your clips in your session view, so you can see at a glance what's playing. You can use them to launch clips, play drums, start, and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans, and sends - and anything else you can imagine with Max for Live. Launchpad is totally portable: lightweight, easy to pack and carry around, and fully USB bus powered - so there's no need for power sockets. You can also link it up with more Launchpads or other Launch products to build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio, by combining Launch Control, Launch Control XL, or Launchkey. Complete with Ableton Live Lite, 4GB of pro-quality Loopmasters samples and the Novation Bass Station VST and Novation V Station VST, Launchpad comes with everything you need to start making great music.

I bought this to learn launchpad performance sets

Complicated, but works well

The Launchpad itself is awesome and looks amazing all lit up. The colors are bright and it works well. However, the Ableton software that you use to control the Launchpad is extremely confusing and the instructions / tutorial are meager at best. We have spent long hours trying to figure it out. I'm sure it will be worth the effort. Just not a plug and play item so it gets frustrating.

Great with Ableton

When you think Ableton, you think the Novation Launchpad. Automats to Ableton which makes working with the program super easy. Nice and light weight and can be thrown into your backpack and taken anywhere. RGB colored pads makes organizing your sounds super simple.

Visually Appealing and So Much Fun!

The midi mapping possibilities are endless and Ableton helps make mapping a breeze with the touch of the Launchpad. Of course, when it comes to performing live, one important thing keep in mind is portability. The Novation Launchpad is extremely lightweight weighing in around 2 lbs. The Launchpad easily integrates with other controllers. The possibilities are endless, and with no sync issues, live performances are definitely a must to try out!
