It is a great product for live performances and also for studio mixing. Has a great integration with Ableton Live and has a very nice feeling, high-quality knobs, and faders. Also, button presses feel very nice. Having 8 different user-mode banks is a great feature. If you travel around, the compact design is great and also if you are a desktop producer, it would fit perfectly.

This is a super well thought out product, very useful, solid and fairly cheap. It is branded as an Ableton live controller, but it is really also relevant for other purposes. Going forward it might be relevant for Novation to: 1) Provide better training material, there are several thing that one have to search for on the internet 2) Develop stronger integration and information regarding use for other purposes than Ableton live e.g. other DAWs, midi controller in general and integration with other hardware like for example other focusrite products.

Full functionality out of the box. No config needed in ableton. Of course you can change every mapping if you want to. Sturdy material and slip proof thanks to the rubber coating on the bottom.
The Launch Control XL is the only controller that I found that met the needs of specific projects I had been working on (mainly Max patches). Basically, I needed a few launch buttons, a mixing board and a few nobs to control parameters and found all in one product! It's portability is very appreciated. Performance-wise, the machine is still new to me, so our relationship is only at its beginning. It's unfortunate that the panning nobs can only control the left channel of stereo tracks in Pro Tools, as the mixing window gives them one nob per channel. It'd be nice if an algorithm was developed to have one nob effectively control the whole tracks' panning, but I'm not too hopeful that Avid would react to such problems with non-Avid related products. Other than that, I have no complaints.

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 buttons offer immediate track focus and mixer control.

Create Your Own Control Layouts
Assign buttons, knobs and faders to any parameters within Ableton Live to make you own layouts. You can even customise knobs with your own colours, and effortlessly switch between your own mappings and Live's built-in functionality. Producing 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 S to control Ableton Live's session view. Trigger clips, play drum racks, and control your mixer, effects and instruments all at the same time.

Take control of Cubase, Logic and Pro Tools with HUI

With support for Mackie's HUI protocol onboard, too, Launch Control XL is fully geared-up to take command of Cubase, Logic and Pro Tools as well as Live. In HUI mode, the sliders link directly to your DAW mixer's volume faders, the rotaries above them step through controlling pan and five sends, the Track Select buttons jump between banks of eight tracks/channels, and the bottom row of buttons map to Mute, Solo or Record Arm. The top two rows of rotaries, meanwhile, are freely MIDI mappable – yours to assign as you see fit!

Easily Carry It Around
Tough, slim and designed for gigging, you can throw 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.

Get Everything You Need to Perform
All Launch products come with Ableton Live Lite, the music production software favoured by countless leading artists, as well as an impressive collection of royalty-free samples from the highly-esteemed Loopmasters.
