The Novation Launchpad Pro is the latest generation of the Launchpad from Novation. This one is designed to build on the already robust and flexible workflow when using Ableton Live. Though of course with the addition of the MIDI external mode, it's not just for Ableton.
New RGB velocity and pressure sensitive buttons up the game for the pads - which are indeed nice and responsive.
