Launchpad Pro is the professional pad instrument which allows any artist to form creative, dynamic and expressive performances in Ableton Live and any other music software, using an 8x8 grid of RGB velocity-sensitive pads to trigger and combine clips, create dynamic beats, bash out melodic lines and control your external hardware.

  • Note Mode: create dynamic beats and play the grid just like an instrument.
  • Device Mode: easily apply effects to your performance.
  • User Mode: create unique custom performances and layouts
  • Session Mode: immediately trigger and combine your clips.


The Launchpad Pro USB Controller is intended to keep you focused on your performance. It lets you effortlessly and directly apply effects from your favourite software, while dipping in and out of specific mixer controls at the touch of a button. Best of all if you want to get really creative, you can construct and programme just about anything you can imagine buy using the  Max for Live plug-in from Ableton and use your Launchpad Pro to control it. It's sleek, lightweight and sturdy enough that you can throw it in your bag and know it will survive even the roughest gigs. It also comes with everything you need to get started: just plug it in via the USB and start making music on your laptop or tower computer. 

 Mix without losing focus:

Get slick, immediate access to all your mixer controls mid-performance, so you stay in your flow. There’s no need to enter a separate mixer mode; press and hold a mixer function button (like mute or volume), make a change, and then simply release the button to drop straight back into your performance.

 Easily control your effects:

control any Ableton effect or instrument mid-performance to add engaging, expressive effects like reverb, beat repeats and filters. The button grid turns into eight velocity-sensitive vertical faders, with LED feedback for super smooth effect transitions.

 Build your own creations:

Max for Live lets you use your Launchpad Pro however you like: turn it into a step sequencer, trigger videos from drum pads or use it to create just about anything you can imagine. Alternatively, engage with the whole community of Max for Live creators to find limitless inspiration and downloads.

 Sleek, lightweight and modular:

This grid is built for performing. It’s compact and light enough to throw in your bag, yet tough enough to survive the roughest gigs. You can bus-power it via USB, or use the included power supply to take full advantage of the super bright RGB LEDs during dusk performances. Like all Launch products, you can chain it to multiple Launchpads and connect it to the rest of your studio or live setup.

 Make music immediately:

Comes with Ableton Live Lite music making software, 1GB of Loopmasters samples, and Bass Station and V Station plug-in synthesisers. It’s class compliant and doesn’t need any drivers: you just install the software, plug it and start performing.
