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.

Gaz Williams takes a look at what the new Novation Launchpad Pro has to offer.


Key Features

  • 64 RGB-backlit, velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads
  • Momentary button mode for quick access
  • dedicated MIDI in/out
  • USB or mains - RGB lights only slightly dimmer on USB power
  • Quick setup mode for fast settings changes
  • Standalone mode for general controller usage
  • Auto fades based on velocity

Novation Launchpad Pro is available now priced at: £209-229/ $299 street
