Launchpad’s 64 pads integrate immediately with Ableton Live. They’re also lit by RGB LEDS, which match the colour of your clips – so you can see at a glance what clips are loaded, playing or recording. As well as using your pads to launch clips and create entire songs, you can also use them to control your mixer: start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends.
