Control Ableton Live:
Integrates immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live, without any setup whatsoever. Just plug in and start making music.
Focus on your music:
All 64 RGB pads light up to match the colour of your clips in Live and you can see at a glance what's loaded, playing and recording.

Bright, colourful pads make the unit stand out just from USB power; on stage or when creating exciting Launchpad lightshow videos that are all over YouTube.
Play drum racks:
Use the grid to play drums and samples with pads pre-mapped to Ableton Live's drum rack
Mix from your grid:
Start and stop loops, arm tracks, and control volumes, pans and sends - all from your grid. Stay in constant control
Control FL Studio:
Use your grid to control FL Studio's Performance Mode. Create beats on drum racks, launch clips and build songs, or assign your pads to any other function
