Novation LaunchPad Pro MK3 - MIDI Controller
Made to produce with Ableton Live and your hardware, Launchpad Pro is our most advanced 64-pad grid controller. Launchpad Pro MK3 combines our deepest Ableton Live integration ever with a powerful built-in sequencer and Custom Modes, giving you hands-on control over every instrument in your studio.
Made to produce.
Ditch the mouse and get closer to the Ableton Live workflow, with dedicated controls for clip and scene launching, transport, quantising and duplicating. On-device access to Live's Capture MIDI function means you'll never lose an idea again. Launchpad Pro even knows when you're drumming, and shows your drum rack on the grid.
For your studio.
Take control of hardware with the brand new four-track, 32-step standalone sequencer, which transforms the Launchpad Pro experience. Sequencer tracks are eight-note polyphonic, and they can sequence software or hardware instruments. Micro Steps help to take grooves off-grid, and patterns can be chained together and assigned to Scenes, to build and perform complete songs. Users can modify patterns on the fly with Probability, Mutate, Sync Rate and Play Order controls, then print directly to Live clips.
Made for you.
Launchpad Pro [MK3] can be reinvented as a custom controller for any MIDI-compatible software or hardware. Simply drag and drop widgets in the all-new, easy-to-use Components editor. Repurpose pads to send custom messages including CCs and Program Changes, and create individual colour mappings, as already rolled out in MK3 versions of Launchpad X and Mini. Store configurations as one of eight Custom Modes and switch between them seamlessly for expressive and flexible control.
The performer's pad.
Launchpad Pro [MK3] features our biggest and most responsive velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, for maximum expressive potential. Dynamic Scale and Note Modes ensure basslines, melodies, chords and leads are perfectly in key, while Chord Mode lets you explore, build and play sophisticated chords straight from the grid. Sleek, lightweight, tough and USB-C bus-powered, Launchpad Pro is at home on stage and in the studio.
Made for everyone.
Our new Easy Start Tool helps new users get up and running in minutes with the software that's right for them, with no need to install drivers. Launchpad Pro ships with a complete production bundle including Ableton Live Lite, plug-ins from Softube, AAS, klevgrand and XLN, plus free two-month Splice Sounds subscription and membership of Novation's Sound Collective free plug-in sharing programme.
Yup, we skipped a generation with Launchpad Pro [MK3] - there was no MK2. (Official Novation nerd status if you spotted that.) Here's why we skipped straight to MK3: Launchpad Pro [MK3] shares all the powerful developments we made for Launchpad Mini [MK3] and Launchpad X. As such we consider all three devices part of the same family. Cut from the same controller cloth, if you like.
Deeper Live Integration
The most advanced Novation grid controller for producing with Ableton Live. Launchpad Pro has dedicated buttons that get you closer to the Ableton Live workflow. Launch clips and scenes, access mixer, device and transport controls, and quantise, duplicate and double, all without touching your mouse. Capture MIDI makes sure you never miss an idea.
The Complete Sequencing Workstation
Keep your tracks evolving with the four-track, eight-note polyphonic, 32-step standalone sequencer. Sequence virtual instruments and instantly print patterns to Clips in Ableton Live. Or hook up your favourite hardware to play patterns via MIDI - Launchpad Pro integrates seamlessly. Micro Steps take grooves off-grid. Probability, Mutation, Sync Rate and Play Order let you transform your patterns on the fly. Patterns can be chained together and assigned to Scenes to build complete songs.
The Most Playable Launchpad Yet
Launchpad Pro's velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads are bigger and more responsive than ever - perfect for playing grooves and launching clips. Scale mode locks pads to a musical key so you never hit a wrong note. Chord mode is an inspirational tool for building harmonies.
Custom Modes: Make Launchpad Pro Your Own
Design hands-on control surfaces for any MIDI-compatible software or hardware using Custom Modes. Simply drag and drop widgets in Novation Components to configure the layout of the 8x8 grid, then store configurations as one of eight Custom Modes. Disconnect the computer (if you want to), then switch between Modes for expressive and flexible control of anything MIDI. Design the perfect controller for your live setup and perform with all your gear, however, you want.
Control MIDI-compatible Hardware, Software, Or Both
Tailor Launchpad Pro to your setup, then take control of MIDI-compatible hardware and software - with or without a computer. Use Custom Modes to send MIDI commands to software and hardware simultaneously. Hook Launchpad Pro up to an all-hardware rig using MIDI In, Out and Out 2/Thru ports on 3.5mm connectors.
