The Novation Launchpad was integral in bringing the grid based controller craze to the masses. Boiling the concept of the monome down into a more affordable, mass produced unit with easy integration with Ableton Live, they created a portable, flexible controller that has proved durable and popular for years. The grid of 64 non-velocity sensitive pads with three colored lighting states can be used out of the box for drum programming, clip launching as well as mixing duties. User defined modes allow for an even wider range of custom performance and production functions. While it has been supplanted by newer velocity-sensitive and RGB-lit versions, for producers seeking a bargain on a rock-solid performance tool, the original is still an excellent choice.
