The Novation Launchpad S Controller for Ableton Live is the next generation of the 64-button music controller that lets you make music or mix using an intuitive grid of multi-color buttons! The Launchpad S adds much brighter buttons, significantly faster refresh rate and is MIDI Class Compliant so it works with any MIDI software on your Mac or Windows PC. It even works on your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit and converts your iPad into a grid-based music system: no additional power supply required, just plug in and play!
Novation Launchpad S includes Ableton Live music software (Launchpad Edition), used by some of the world’s top DJs and producers – plus it supports other grid-based music applications such as FL Studio. Whether you’re a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad S gives you all you need to ‘play' your software straight out of the box. Use the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control your mixer. Launchpad S also triggers loops and effects in the new Novation Launchpad app for iPad.

Novation has created a Launchpad app for iPad, which is a totally self-contained music making and performance experience. This is not a software control app; it hosts its own sounds and enables you to trigger loops with Launchpad S. There is also a whole range of effects that can be triggered using Launchpad S’s buttons, including filters, stutters and drum roll-styled effects. They can be triggered in combination to create some incredibly powerful performance tools.
Launchpad S with FL Studio
Novation Launchpad S integrates with FL Studio’s performance mode, so you can trigger clips and get hands-on control of FL Studio’s powerful new performance zone features. Use the buttons to sketch out beats with drum racks, and assign them to additional functions. You can control almost any music software using Novation's award-winning 'Automap' control software – and Launchpad S is fully MIDI class-compliant so it’ll drive any MIDI application.
As well as ‘Ableton Live Launchpad Edition’, Launchpad S comes with a software version of Novation’s classic analogue mono-synth – the Bass Station. You can use this as a plug-in within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs. There is also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers – Loopmasters. Get started straight away with over one gigabyte of loops including drums, FX and artist content.
