Launchpad Pro

I have launchpads before,starting with the launchpad mini.But this is head and shoulders above the previous.Sturdier ,brighter, larger etc...And I don,t even use it for Ableton! I run the iOS app, and connect via midi to my bass station!

Swiss Army Controller for LIVE

This is a rugged controller that can do the job of many others: clip launch, drum pads, standalone MIDI, chromatic keyboard, and "motorized" controllers. While it can perform many of the above functions pretty good, other controllers can do some things better, smoother, easier, etc., it is a great value for its' versatility. In many ways it operates like an instrument itself.

Sweetwater Advice

Jon Faloon

Within minutes of bringing theLaunchPad Pro home, I was able to have a session in Ableton Live ready to go. The ease of use and degree of integration with Ableton Live is truly intuitive. One of my favorite features the Launchpad Pro is the inclusion of mixer controls, which allows you to quickly change aspects of your session, without hindering your workflow. Ableton also includes velocity-sensitive fader functions that change levels based on how hard you press the pad, which feels completely natural and expressive. I also enjoy the color-coded pads that mirror the track colors in Ableton, which let me make changes on the fly and quickly recall tracks without having to look at my computer screen.
