The Launchpad X slaps! In other words it is the perfect compliment to my creative workflow. It’s notes mode is almost a melody generator powered by your imagination.

Any doubts I had of moving from a 2nd gen Launchpad Mini have evaporated. The touch sensitive pads with the LEDs and the ease of use just blow it all away. Adore it as a performance and music creation abilities it offers.

great 5 stars
I like my Launchpad X and I'm enjoying learning Ableton Lite which came included with it.
It was hard to get to use at first for a beginner but I got the hang of it in the first week.
Camilo Garrido
It's great, the sensitivity is super expressive for playing and is beautiful with the lights and all. Could be cheaper, but is awesome anyways.
Launchpad with new capabilities and brand new design.

It is a very sensitive product
Ilia Lebedev
Amazing and modern product. Finally I've got some drumpads that are as geeky as me
Jon Emery
This version is so much better with the velocity / aftertouch, Notes and customizable modes. Much more usable in DAWs other than Live.

I ordered the Launchpad X for use of the Launchpad App on my iPad Pro like shown on several Videos from Novation - but it does not work Meitner with or without powered USB Hub as told by the Service another 20 € waste of Money - so Ableton ok, Logic ok - IPad no way.
The hardware is really solid. There seem to be some glitches in the software though.

Beautiful design, light and compact yet powerful!
