Novation intros Launchpad Mini & Launch Control

Novation Launchpad Mini

Novation has introduced the Launchpad Mini and Launchpad Control, two new controller units.

Launchpad Mini

The Launchpad Mini is a compact version of the celebrated Novation Launchpad, featuring 64 three-colour launch pads and 16 performance buttons that enable you to produce and perform music with your iPad® – as well as your PC or Mac.

Launchpad Mini is part of the growing ‘Launch’ family of music-making gear. Partner Launchpad Mini with its bigger brother Launchpad S, grow your studio with a Launchkey or Launchkey Mini, and add high quality rotary controls with Launch Control.

They all work together to give you control over the Novation iPad apps – including the Launchpad iPad app and the Launchkey iPad app.

Launchpad Mini features

  • Compact Launchpad with the same powerful functionality as the Launchpad S.
  • 64 three-colour Launch pads – play loops, samples, sounds, and also control effects on iPad, Mac or PC.
  • 16 additional three-colour performance buttons.
  • Fully integrated with Novation’s Launchpad app for iPad.
  • Effortless integration with Ableton Live, just like the celebrated Launchpad.
  • The same high level of integration with FL Studio 11 as Launchpad S.
  • Connects directly to your iPad with the Apple Camera Connection Kit (not included).
  • Tough, compact, trustworthy design.
  • Combine with the growing Novation Launch family of products for even broader integration with your music production software and apps.
  • Includes Ableton Live Lite for Mac or PC – plus Launchpad app for iPad.

The Launchpad Mini is scheduled for release in October 2013, priced at MSRP $124.99 USD / $99.99 USD at dealers.

Launch Control

The Launch Control is a robust, compact controller with 16 assignable knobs, eight three color launch pads, and four function keys – designed to be the perfect partner to Launchpad.

The perfect partner to Novation Launchpad, Launch Control works with all major music software – and with the iPad. Launch Control’s three colour pads can be used to play loops and samples, while the knobs can tweak filters, effects, levels, panning, and more.

Launch Control is the perfect partner for Novation’s Launchpad, the controller that changed the face of modern music performance with its grid of 64 multicoloured pads. To Launchpad, Launch Control adds 16 knobs, enabling you to transform performances and studio workflow – and another eight three colour launch pads.
