Novation Launchpad MK2
Here we have the Novation Launchpad MK2 Ableton Live controller. This fantastic machine features an 8 x 8 grid that lets you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer, and you can do this all while creating an impressive lightshow. The RGB LED pads are actually brighter than the previous models so it really brightens up the pad and your performance.
Launchpad's 64 pads integrate immediately with Ableton Live. They're also lit by RGB LEDS, which match the colour of your clips - so you can see at a glance what clips are loaded, playing or recording. As well as using your pads to launch clips and create entire songs, you can also use them to control your mixer: start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends. Launchpad integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup whatsoever. Just plug in and start making music.
Launchpad is totally portable: lightweight, easy to pack and carry around, and fully USB bus powered - so there's no need for power sockets. You can also combine it with more Launchpads or other Launch products to build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio. Just add Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey. Complete with Ableton Live Lite, 1GB of royalty-free Loopmasters samples and the Novation Bass Station and V Station VST and AU plug-in synthesisers, Launchpad comes with everything you need to start making great music.
