From Our Research Team:
Made for Ableton Live Triggering Mayhem!The Novation Launchpad is made for Ableton Live — but it's ready to change any MIDI-triggering world! This controller puts 72 trigger buttons under your reign, making it an amazing companion to Live's Session View. The Launchpad's buttons are even backlit, so you always know which clips are playing, loaded, or record enabled. You've also got dedicated buttons for launching scenes. If you don't use Live, go ahead and use Launchpad to map map out the controls however you want — it includes Novation's renowned AutoMap software. Feeling wild? Use up to six Novation Launchpads at once!
While the Novation Launchpad is a majorly cool tool for using Live's Session View, thanks to its massive clip-triggering section, you can also use it to control your mix. Take innovative control over your volume, pans, sends, record arming, soloing, and muting — use Launchpad's buttons to instantly jump to different levels across eight channels at once.
If you don't already own Ableton Live software, don't fret. Included, you get Ableton Live 8 Launchpad Edition, which is fully functional for performance and production. If you do have Ableton Live, your copy of Live 7 or Live 8 is already ready to go with the Novation Launchpad. What else? Another big Novation Launchpad bonus is that it's enabled to work with Novation's Automap software, so you can take instant, intelligent control over VST, AU, RTAS, and TDM plug-ins — as well as an increasing number of standalone samplers and step-sequencers. Automap provides a heads-up transparent display across your computer screen, so you've got at-a-glance recognition of what you're controlling. And you can assign and re-assign parameters with just a quick click and a tap.
Offering up major Ableton Live control over clips, scenes, and more — not to mention all-around MIDI-mappable mayhem — the Launchpad is a huge value at this low price. Thanks, Novation!

From sparks to fireworks!
by Steve from West Islip, NYWhether your mixing your own loops or remixing another's the design and approach of the launchpad coupled with Ableton Live makes the task fun and less daunting! Previously I would gather loops and mi... read more [+]x each of them one by one using a sequencer (time consuming and boring). Now I can just add all loops to project bin and mix them instantly, if they work then they stay, if not, they're removed and I go forward. When it comes to the initial planning of a mix this item is a must! Got a song already laid out? Use this to remix it! You'd be amazed at how much faster your creativity and projects are sparked! close [-]

Works incredibly well for live and studio
by DJ DualScreen from Red Lion, PAI bought this product back in Aug/Sept 2011, and have been using it in my recording studio/bed room. This controller was specifically designed for Ableton Live, and it works so well with it. The dev... read more [+]ice is set up to control most basic features such as volume and pan, but can be configured to control other things as well. Ableton's Clip feature is terrific, and the Launchpad allows for easy launching and stopping when used as a DJ control surface. The only real improvement that can be made is the addition of transport controls and a crossfader, features that can be found on the Akai APC40. The real advantage of the Launchpad over the APC40 is it is bus powered, so you only need one cord. Overall, it is a must have if you want a simple control surface for the studio, or performing live close [-]

Probably the most simple and intuitive Ableton Controller around. The size, capabilities, and not to mention the ease of use, put the Launchpad at the forefront for modern DJ and live PA technology.
