Novation Launchpad MK2 Midi Controller for Ableton Live
Manufacturer's ID: Launchpad MK2
What we say:
Novation's iconic Launchpad grid controller gets a facelift along with an update in functionality.
This MKII version now has RGB LED lights to allow the pads to match colours with your Ableton clips on your laptop screen. Its 64 pads (8x8) allow you to launch clips, tap out beats, play instruments, draw in automation, change levels and tweak effects, all from the Launchpad! There is so much functionality available here in a device that's instinctive to use and rewarding to boot.
The Launchpad is powered by its USB connection so you don't have to fuss about with extra plug spaces and missing power supplies! You can even couple this with other Launch products (Launch Control, Launchkey etc) to get even more hands-on control!
If you use Ableton at all, it's well worth having some sort of grid device to get the most from it. The Launchpad MKII is a powerful and sturdy beast with a host of features and a low price tag. You can't lose!
