Novation's Launchpad S is a powerful 64-button music controller that lets you make music or mix tracks using an intuitive grid of multi-color buttons.

Whether you're a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to play your software. Use the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control your mixer, and more. It also triggers loops and effects in the new Novation Launchpad app for iPad; a totally self-standing music performance app that hosts sounds and effects. Hooked up to your computer-or iPad-via USB, Launchpad S is fully bus powered, and it's lightweight and easy to carry. Launchpad S is the evolution of Novation's best-selling Launchpad controller, with brighter buttons, significantly faster refresh rate and it supports multiple software. It even converts your iPad into a grid-based music system via a Camera Connection Kit (not included). Novation has created a Launchpad app for iPad, which hosts its own sounds and enables you to trigger loops with your Launchpad S hardware. There is also a range of effects that can be triggered using the buttons. Launchpad S integrates with FL Studio's performance mode, so you can trigger clips and get hands-on control of powerful new performance zone features. Use the buttons to sketch out beats with drum racks, and assign them to additional functions. You can control almost any music software using Novation's award-winning Automap control software-and Launchpad S is fully MIDI class-compliant so it drives any MIDI application. It also comes with a software version of Novation's analog mono-synth-the Bass Station. You can use this as a plug-in within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs.
