Paired with Ableton Live DAW software, the Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 grid controller becomes your epicenter for music production. An array of 64 pressure-sensitive RGB pads gives you the power to launch clips and scenes, play melodies and chords, control mixer settings, and much more. Create full tracks using Launchpad Pro MK3’s four-track, 32-step sequencer, complete with probability and mutation controls for constantly-evolving creativity. You even have instant access to Ableton Live’s Capture MIDI function, ensuring you’ll never lose a moment of creative inspiration. And even if this is your first introduction to Ableton Live and the Launchpad series, the Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite and an Easy Start Tool to help you start producing music quickly.
Even the original Launchpad provided an instrument-like feel, allowing you to play notes and trigger drums, but the Launchpad Pro MK3 seriously ups the ante. That’s because Novation equipped the Launchpad Pro with special Chord and Scale Modes. Chord Mode makes it easy to explore different chord voicings and harmonies, and trigger them right from the grid. Scale Modes automatically assign the pads to specific notes, making it impossible for you to play out of key. All told, Chord and Scale Modes not only let you play your Launchpad Pro MK3 like an instrument, they can inspire your creativity.
In addition to its remarkable playability, the Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 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 to tweak channel levels and panning, aux send levels, and so on.
The Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 works with any Mac or Windows computer, and you can even use it with iOS devices with a Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter (sold separately). Here’s what you can expect in the box:
With Novation’s v1.2 firmware update for the Launchpad Pro MK3 pad controller, you now have even greater creative performance potential. Responding to requests from artists of all types, this firmware update brings Unquantized Recording to free yourself from the restrictions of rigid grid-based sequencing. Your beats don’t need to be confined to the grid, allowing you to record into micro steps for off-grid grooves. Another much-requested feature comes in the form of Legacy Mode which re-introduces the User layout of the original Launchpad Pro, allowing you to transfer your old Launchpad Pro projects into the Launchpad Pro MK3 environment.
