Standalone Mode lets you play just about anything
You’ll love the phenomenal playability of the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller’s Standalone Mode. Whether you’re using music software or external hardware, the Launchpad Pro is as musically playable as a keyboard. You can connect the Launchpad Pro to your DAW for an intuitively creative experience, or connect its MIDI ports to your Bass Station II and play riffs on your grid. The only limit is your imagination!
Quick, immediate access to your mixer controls
In addition to its remarkable playability, the Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller also gives you quick, immediate access to all of your mixer controls. This lets you change settings in the midst of a performance without losing your flow. There’s no separate mixer mode to hamper your creativity – simply press and hold a button, make a change, release the button, and drop straight back to your performance. It really is that easy!
Scale Modes turn your Launchpad Pro into an instrument
Even the original Launchpad provided an instrument-like feel, allowing you to play notes and trigger drums, but the Launchpad Pro seriously ups the ante. That’s because Novation equipped the Launchpad Pro with special Scale Modes. Scale Modes automatically assign the pads to specific notes, making it impossible for you to play out of key. There are 32 keys and modes onboard, plus seven overlap options for offsetting rows and a cool chromatic mode that provides references without limiting you to a scale. All told, Scale Modes not only let you play your Launchpad Pro like an instrument, they can inspire your creativity.
Complete control for adding engaging, expressive effects
The Novation Launchpad Pro USB MIDI controller gives you absolute control over your effects, instruments, and plug-ins, letting you add engaging, expressive effects mid-performance. It’s child’s play to create ultra-smooth transitions with the Launchpad Pro, as its button grid also turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders complete with LED feedback. The harder you hit the pad, the faster the transition! Plus, Scale Mode lets Live-based producers effortlessly play and record bass lines, melodies, chords, and leads, all perfectly in key.
Grow your rig with additional Launch series controllers
All on its own, your Launchpad Pro already provides an epic amount of control over Ableton Live, FL studio, and the rest of your music-creation rig, and with handy navigation controls, you can easily negotiate even impressively large sets and sessions. When it comes to live performance, however, it can be really nice to have additional pads and extra hands-on controls waiting at arm’s reach. With a Launchpad Pro, growing your system is as simple as adding additional Novation Launch series controllers, such as Launchpads, Launchpad Pros, Launch Control models, or even Launchkey keyboards.
