Compact Control over Ableton Live
Launch Control makes creating electronic music way more fun. Its chunky knobs and multicoloured pads let you play your software like an instrument, by giving you hands-on control over any aspect of your sound that you like. It may be half the size of its big brother, Launch Control XL, but its 16 banks give you more than enough controls to get as creative as you like with your sound.
Focus on Your Performance
Peering at a screen doesn’t make a good performance. It’s also bad for your eyes. We designed Launch Control to make you way more creative, by putting your controls directly into your hands.
We spent a long time designing these knobs: they're sturdy and full-sized, they feel great to hold and turn and they're all surrounded by multicoloured LED indicators.
Connect to Just About Anything
Launch Control works on any modern Mac, PC or iOS device, and integrates immediately with Ableton Live and Fruity Loops. It's also simple to set up in any other MIDI-compatible software, even on iOS if you have a Camera Connection Kit (not included).
The pads are great, too: they're large and rubbery, and they give bright multicoloured LED feedback, which makes them perfect for triggering clips, playing notes and tweaking key mixer controls.
Create Your Own Layouts from 448 Controls
There are 16 knobs and 8 buttons on a Launch Control. If that's not enough for you, you can bank up to 16 times - essentially giving you 256 knobs and 128 buttons. That's 448 controls!
You can assign these controls to whatever you like in Ableton Live, or any other major music software. You can also easily switch between your own mappings and the factory templates.
