Imagine standing on stage. Just you and your ensemble of linked Novation Launchpad X MIDI controllers. The crowd cheers. The lights go down. The spotlight focuses on you. Your hands hover over the pads and you start by pressing just a few buttons. Then the mega-screen behind you comes to life. Squares of vibrant colors bounce across the screen in time to your music.
Yep. The Novation Launchpad X is an instrument that lets you compose and perform with an array of instruments using a 64-pad device that can record, loop and playback sounds and patterns. It’s kind of like a musical onion, with the ability to layer track on top of track so one person can create music that normally would take an entire band.
This MIDI controller connects to your computer and is programmed using music software. And one of the best in the business comes with the Launchpad right in the box.
Ableton Live 10 Lite is used by composers and performers all over the world. Link the program to your Launchpad and you have the musical world at your fingertips.
The Novation Launchpad X is perfect for beginners and masters alike. It is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems, is compact enough to make it extremely portable, and light enough you won’t need to hire roadies to move it from venue to venue.
The Novation Launchpad X performs as magically in front of a huge crowd as it does in your basement.
The pads are pressure sensitive, so a light touch produces a soft sound while a heavy push produces a roaring tone. And each pad is equipped with an RGB light, allowing the user (that would be you) to produce any color to light the pad up when you press it. The velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads give the performer the ability to add his or her own subtle nuances to the music.
The Novation Launchpad X is a perfect addition to your DAW. With Novation’s online Easy Start tool, you have access to step-by-step videos showing how to set up the Launchpad using Ableton Live and start making music in minutes.
Novation and Live also offer widgets and other tools you can download and incorporate into your productions. You even get two months of a Splice Sounds membership, where you have access to hundreds of high-quality, royalty-free loops and presets. New presets and loops are released daily. And when you register your Novation Launchpad X, you automatically get access to Sound Collective, which releases free plug-ins periodically.
