Novation Launchpad Pro MK3
Novation Launchpad Pro MK3
Launchpad Pro is Novation’s most powerful 64-pad MIDI grid controller for producing: both in Ableton Live and with your hardware, it gives you everything you need to create and perform your tracks.
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.
The Logical Choice
Launchpad Pro is the most integrated grid controller for Logic Pro, with unique access to Logic’s Live Loops. Trigger cells from the grid, navigate projects easily, and get hands-on with producing and performing. Create quickly with Note and Chord modes and record directly to cells, then mute, solo, record arm and stop tracks. Dedicated controls let you clear and duplicate cells, and quantise the notes recorded into a cell — all with a few button pushes and without ever touching a mouse.
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.
When you register your Launchpad Pro, you’ll automatically gain access to Sound Collective. Get new free plug-ins every couple of months from some of the biggest names in the business, along with offers, discounts and more.

No upgrades available
Never used a launchpad before, nor Ableton live. But learning each day, and slowly making beats. Very impressed with the pad.
