Very good build and quality. I would just wish the pad to be slightly bigger, but since I bring the launchpad with me while travelling, small is also an advantage.

Süper tuşlara sahip tepki süresi oldukça yüksek bir cihaz.

it is useful and cool but a little bit not user-friendly at first since it doesn't include some basic illustration in how I can use it,
Jeremy Carter
This is a really neat instrument/controller. I thought I was just going to use it as an Ableton/MIDI controller, but it turns out to be a really great instrument too, due to the "Scale Mode", which allows you to set the pads to play certain scales (with tons of scale options). So it removes all the notes which don't sound good in sequence together, making it really easy to play.

Excellent way of starting in achieving my dreams!
Leif Panton
So far so good, a lot to learn and could have been good if a paper full user manual could be included, but for the environment's sake i'm happy with using a web version. Very happy customer!
Jose Antonio Pallares Villanueva
great design, functunality, look, and feel... the only thing is the difficulties in the installation procces before the mapping

Mr Jon Casey Malgas
Novation has done it again. Easy to use. Effective through production and performance. The DJ/Producers Swiss Army knife.
Mr Srinivas Boddada
Great Equipment. Needs some good practice if you do not have enough experience. Awesome Product once you learn how to use it.
Mr Jeremie Marolleau
Check the tutorials online and it will be fine. A really good choice in my opinion.
Mr Nicholas Skelton
I started using ableton's launchpad a year ago. When switching from launchpad mini to pro, the experience boosted up ! With a little perseverence, very good result's can be achieved. I recommend this product very much but you maybe should start with a smaller launchpad before heading towards this one.
Quentin
I loved my launchpad pro until one day it suddenly broke :( I took great care of it used it everyday for my production, but one day the hole in which we put in the midi cable it wouldn't light up, I've tried with other cables but nothing worked. I've only had this launchpad for less than a year so I am kind of dissapointed with the durability of this product. I have 4 launchpad S's that are 2 years old that I've used everyday and they work just like day one. Novation I love all your products but unfortunatly your mk2 products aren't as durable as your older products which is a shame. Still love your compagny and your products! I hope you will take my review seriously and as a constructive critisism to make your product line more durable for the near future! :D Have a good day

I choose this because it was smaller and lighter than a Push for carrying to gigs. It gives me the similar integration (except for sampling) as Push, in a better format. The software integration with Live is great - it just works. And there is enough room (the User mode) to add additional mappings. Lastly, I really like the velocity sensitive pads, not only for percussion, but also for playing synths. Grid based pitch is pretty nice way to play. My only gripe would be that the Note mode doesn't do scales, only chromatic mapping.
Zachary
I really love the amount of colors and ease of use it has.
DOMINIC
Very satisfied, works incredibly well with Ableton and you get right into creating music quickly, love the pressure sensitive pads and colours. Thank you Novation.
Reginald
Everything you need and then some. The LED color is rich and bright. Touch pad incredible. Easy to navigate. Clearly Ableton based Push 2 around the Launchpad design because the first version of Push crafted by Akai didn't come close. Have owed all 3 versions and it keeps getting better. Nothing in its price range compares. It's All you need, laptop, mic and Launchpad Pro!
Matthew
I love the launchpad pro! It is a big step up from the launchpad S and mk2. I use it most for covers and light shows (currently a quad launchpad cove including 2 mk2s, a pro, and S).
Charlie
Was super excited when i bought this, love using my LaunchPad Pro every day, it's a vital part of my daily activites, its functionality is endless, and it's lightshows are gorgeous - Kaskobi
Jason
LaunchPad Pro is integral to my workflow. Controls Ableton flawlessly, though my favorite use is as an instrument - the big grid gives a wide range of polyphonic notes to play. And with its open architecture its extendible into further creative uses. Physically sturdy too - and if coupled with a LaunchControl XL gives you unprecedented control over your production software. Useful and inspiring!
Joey
There is literally no documentation for a beginner anywhere. Don't buy it unless you already know how to use it...
Chance
Functions exactly as expected and provides a great medium to interact with ableton live!
Christopher
After debating on whether to just buy the Launchpad Pro or an MK2 to save a little money, I decided to just fork over the extra money and for the past 7 months I've been so happy about it, my favorite feature is the standalone mode and that I've been able to use it in tandem with my friends MiniNova synth and the velocity pads feel nice to use, if you have projects that use several controller type instruments I'd recommend buying this it was worth it for me so hopefully it will be for you to if you decide to pick one up.
Cameron
The settings panel was hard to learn but other than that it is great
Randall
Love everything about it, just wish it had key lock like the Push! It's the only thing missing.
Jaren
I have spent the last two weeks using this device on its own along side Ableton Live 9, and have loved every minute. After figuring out ASIO4ALL, the minimal delay made the Launchpad Pro shine. My only complaint is that my Launchpad will not work with Live 9.6.1, but only 9.6 or 9.5.
marcus
Amazing very verstile especially in the MIDI area piece of music hardware/instrument loving it . would get 5 stars only one problem. when you going off finger drumming or jamming on instrument if you accidently hit the bottom row of functions buttons can stop your whole live performance dead. should have a way to dectaivte those buttons since they had to put them there are a way were they stop being function buttons and become instrument pads.
James
Did not work for me. Returned the item and purchased the Ableton Push 2. Lauchpad Pro is a great product. I needed the knobs and additional functions of Push 2.

Enhance your performance:
Launchpad Pro is the best and simplest performance grid instrument for Ableton Live. It integrates seamlessly and simplifies the challenge of performing live in Ableton, by giving you hands-on control of your clips and tracks with four simple modes: Session, Note, Device and User. You don't need to set anything up; simply plug in and starting playing your music – everything will just work

Control just about anything:
Whichever software you're using, Launchpad Pro lets you control it and any piece of external hardware. Plug it straight into Logic Pro and play it like a keyboard, or connect the MIDI ports to Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid.Immediately play your clips:
The 8x8 grid of RGB pads light up to match the colour of your clips in Ableton, so you can concentrate on triggering and combining your loops and ideas.

Scale Mode:
The pads automatically assign themselves to the notes of one of 32 keys and modes, making it impossible to play out of key.Make dynamic beats: drum racks are automatically laid out and illuminated, which makes it as easy as possible to create expressive beats and drum performances using the velocity and pressure-sensitive pads.

Play it like an instrument:
You can easily play notes, scales and chords on the grid, because Launchpad Pro illuminates its pads in melodic layouts. You'll get RGB LED feedback every time you press a pad and, if you're in Standalone Mode, you can use the grid to play any of your software and external hardware, too.

Mix without losing focus:
Get slick, immediate access to all your mixer controls mid-performance, so you stay in your flow. There's no need to enter a separate mixer mode; press and hold a mixer function button (like mute or volume), make a change, and then simply release the button to drop straight back into your performance.

Easily control your effects:
Control any Ableton effect or instrument mid-performance to add engaging, expressive effects like reverb, beat repeats and filters. The button grid turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders, with LED feedback for super smooth effect transitions.

Build your own creations:
Max for Live lets you use your Launchpad Pro however you like: turn it into a step sequencer, trigger videos from drum pads or use it to create just about anything you can imagine. Alternatively, engage with the whole community of Max for Live creators to find limitless inspiration and downloads.

Sleek, lightweight and modular:
This grid is built for performing. It's compact and light enough to throw in your bag, yet tough enough to survive the roughest gigs. You can bus-power it via USB, or use the included power supply to take full advantage of the super bright RGB LEDs during dusk performances. Like all Launch products, you can chain it to multiple Launchpads and connect it to the rest of your studio or live setup.

Make music immediately:
It's class compliant and doesn't need any drivers: you just install the software, plug it in and start performing.

Make music immediately:
Includes Ableton Live Lite, one of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys instruments, Novation Bass Station and V Station virtual instruments and over 4GB of Loopmasters samples.

Enjoy two years of warranty:
Rely on our two-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault.

Practice rhythm:
Use Melodics to hone your pad drumming skills for free.
