I love the design of launchpad and it is easy to use. I bought it for the second time, however, the delivery is to slow that I need to wait for more than a week.

I really enjoy playing around with this but the software that comes with it is quite limited and to purchase the upgrade costs more than the Launchpad itself.

Great instrument. Arrived quickly as promised. It is a pity it was expensive to release customs and delivery at customer's home. After all, "free shipping" was promised..

The LaunchPad MK2 is an amazing piece of music equipment; I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get into making music, remixes, drum beats and for playing other peoples' projects. The LaunchPad MK2 is very durable. The lights on the Launcpad MK2 are bright and colourful and the response of the lights are almost instant. The response of the touch to sound usually varies as your computer controls the sound output but on my computer the sound is projected instantly without no problems.

the launchpad is built amazingly well and works seamlessly with Ableton live. it has improved my workflow 100% and has given me the confidence to make music like never before.
January 29th 2017
its a really cool device that allows you to play anything you want. it will have its hiccups every now and then but about 95% of the time nothing happens.
Mr Andrew Sova
January 19th 2017
I really love this product, it works perfectly. The only thing that is dissapointing is that you only get Ableton lite, which doesn't come close to letting you do all the many thinks available with ableton suite or even standard.

Orginal mk2 launchpad.first class.

When I got my Launchpad MKII I didn't know what to think at first. I was certainly amazed and overjoyed but all I could really think if was, "is it good?" For all you people out there asking yourselves that same question, yes, it is very good. The Launchpad MKII has plenty of soundpacks and options for you to create music. You can edit everything to the way you'd like. The pad gets even better, it is compatible with the Launchpad app. You do need a few things in order to use both of them together but in the end it's worth it and amazing. The amount of options you have to create and use things is great and very well worth your money. If you don't want to go as big as the Launchpad MKII or Launchpad Pro, I would recommend getting the smaller ones then because they are all pretty good. Anyone out there thinking twice about buying a launchpad, go for it, just buy it. it's a great product and trust me you won't regret it, there are endless options and great starter soundpacks to use and mix.
July 15th 2016
Although I don't use my Launchpad anywhere near as much as I'd like to, the product is really well-built and looks awesome. Improved support for DAWs besides Ableton Live would be appreciated :)
July 14th 2016
The usage of this product has brought my music production studio to a new high. The device is easy to understand and operate, leading to many hours of getting lost in music production. I would recommend this product to any DJ or music producer. Remember....Mother Superior sez....if you can't be good you had better be memorable and this product is just that. MotherSuperiorsBackBeats

I love the launchpad! It is my new way to express my creativity. I use it most for launchpad covers and light shows (currently doing a quad launchpad cover). I love the mk2 so much I bought another one! And then a pro, and a launchkey... yeah I love novation.
July 13rd 2016
I love using this launchpad and it is so amazing just being able to play songs. Also I love creating songs on it! Great job Novation!
July 12nd 2016
been waiting for a long time to purchase one of these, and it is a great piece of kit. I am using it with Ableton Live & have it mapped to Tracktor for the Remix deck's. It has helped me a lot of Ableton to create better drum tracks at the start, instead of manually creating these with a mouse.
July 12nd 2016
I AM IN ABSOLUTE LOVE WITH THIS LAUNCHPAD!!! I would most highly recommend this for those who love these types of things. if you get this I promise that you are going to have the time of your life and you will not get board with this! I really hope you make the decision that I made for getting this. thanks! XD
July 12nd 2016
One of the most productive purchases of my life, the LaunchPad MKII and is an essential tool for any producer/performer - Kaskobi
July 12nd 2016
This product is by far the best if you want to make electronic music to perform live in front of an audience, or camera. It's as good as it looks.
July 11st 2016
The launchpad MK2 is a very good launchpad but i do not recommend it to beginners, not yet
July 11st 2016
Love it! Works well, very intuitive with Ableton Live, the one thing I don't like is the velocity is always the same, but other Launchpads that cost more do, so I went with the cheaper option so I didn't get the feature.
July 11st 2016
This thing is just amazing, does so many different tasks! I bought it mainly to play projects made by other people, and have found many awesome people and projects whilst searching! Being able to use this as a drum pad and record your own beats is pretty cool too! Finally the colours just make it so much more exciting to play, and adding light effects and so on is pretty to do! Definitely would recommend!!
July 11st 2016
It is an excellent upgrade from the generation 1 launchpad.
July 11st 2016
The novation launchpad MKII is a very useful product. It is an 8 by 8 MIDI controller that is already mapped to Ableton when you get it. I use it myself in VirtualDJ ( It's actually really cool) and Ableton. One of the few problems I have with it is that it does not come with excellent instructions, and the customer support is OK at best. Aside from that, the launchpad does exactly what it promises. I would recommend this for producers and people who want to perform live sets like SoNevable
July 11st 2016
This unit has fulfilled its place alongside my current stage setup. I love that it can launch clips and and play drum racks simultaneously. As well as synth imaging when I get a wild hair during live performances. Great price point too. Only drawback is that there is no MIDI comparability...but I knew that when I bought it.
July 11st 2016
Amazing! Colorful - easy to use!
July 11st 2016
The Launchpad is cheap and small and it works. I like small modular hardware so to get the 16x16 Ableton session this compact is great. I only use it for triggering.

The iconic grid instrument for Ableton Live.

If you use Ableton Live, you need a Launchpad. Its 8 x 8 grid of pads has become ubiquitous with the evolution of electronic music, letting you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer, all while creating awesome lightshows.

Launchpad integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup. The pads are lit by RGB LEDs, which match the colour 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 USB bus-powered on Mac or PC, 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, 1GB of pro-quality Loopmasters samples and the Novation Bass Station VST and AU plug-in synthesiser, Launchpad comes with everything you need to start making great music. It also supports Novation Launchpad App, so you can use its RGB pads with your iPad too*.
