Novation LaunchPad Pro MK3
Made to produce
Launchpad Pro is our most powerful 64-pad MIDI grid controller for producing: both in Ableton Live and with your hardware. It gives you everything you need to create and perform your tracks.
Made to Produce
Launchpad Pro isn’t just Novation’s best Ableton Live controller ever, it’s the hub of your production and performance setup. While features like tap tempo, transport controls, Capture MIDI and Print To Clip empower Live users, new Custom Modes and a built-in sequencer make it the perfect partner for your hardware. With the new Easy Start Tool, owners will be up and running in minutes, combining instant gratification with limitless creative potential.
Deeper Live Integration: More Music, Less Mousing
Launchpad Pro [MK3] is the most advanced third-party controller for Ableton Live. Transport controls let you trigger playback and recording directly, with any track you select instantly primed for recording. Take control of Live’s tempo and set fixed clip length for recording, all without touching the computer. Capture MIDI keeps track of everything you play, even when you’re not recording, so you never lose an idea again.
The Complete Sequencing Workstation
The brand new four-track, 32-step standalone sequencer transforms the Launchpad Pro experience. Sequencer tracks are eight-note polyphonic, and they can sequence software or hardware instruments. Micro Steps help to take grooves off-grid, and patterns can be chained together and assigned to Scenes, to build and perform complete songs. Users can modify patterns on the fly with Probability, Mutate, Sync Rate and Play Order controls, then print directly to Live clips.
Custom Modes: Make Launchpad Pro Your Own
Launchpad Pro [MK3] can be reinvented as a custom controller for any MIDI-compatible software or hardware. Simply drag and drop widgets in the all-new, easy-to-use Components editor. Repurpose pads to send custom messages including CCs and Program Changes, and create individual colour mappings, as already rolled out in MK3 versions of Launchpad X and Mini. Store configurations as one of eight Custom Modes and switch between them seamlessly for expressive and flexible control.
The Most Playable Launchpad Yet
Launchpad Pro’s velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads are bigger and more responsive than ever before — perfect for playing grooves and launching clips. Note and Scale modes tailor input to the key of the song, and brand new is Chord mode: an inspirational tool for building harmonies. Launchpad Pro even knows when you’re drumming and shows your Drum Rack on the grid.
Control MIDI-compatible Hardware, Software, Or Both
Tailor Launchpad Pro to your personal setup, then take control of MIDI-compatible hardware and software. Use Custom Modes to send MIDI commands to software and hardware simultaneously. MIDI Input, Output and a switchable Out 2/Thru port on space-saving 3.5mm connectors allow Launchpad Pro to play and sequence synths, samplers and drum machines, or sequence a MIDI-equipped modular synth rig.
Easy Start Tool: Hassle-free Out Of The Box Experience
An industry first, our step-by-step interactive Easy Start Tool tailors the Launchpad Pro setup process to the user’s needs, to get them making music as quickly as possible. This super-simple process also has the effect of reducing the number of product returns due to lack of understanding on the part of the customer.
Deepest Ableton Live Integration yet: Launch clips and scenes, access mixer, device and transport controls, and quantise, duplicate and double clips — all without touching the mouse.
64 super-sensitive RGB pads. Larger, velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads mirror Ableton Live Sessions in colour. Visualise Live clips on the Launchpad and play your instruments dynamically and expressively.
Powerful four-track, 32-step sequencer. Each track can contain a complex drum groove or instrumental part. Patterns can be grouped and chained to build tracks. Probability and mutation controls help to spark new musical ideas.
Chord mode allows users to explore, build and play complex chords from the grid, and quickly find new harmonies.
Dynamic Note and Scale modes. Effortlessly play perfectly in-key bass lines, melodies, chords and leads. Launchpad Pro even knows when you’re drumming and shows your Drum Rack on the grid.
MIDI In, Out and Out 2/Thru. Control all MIDI-equipped gear in your studio directly from Launchpad Pro.
Capture MIDI. On-device access to Live's Capture MIDI function means you need never lose ideas again.
