Novation's mission to make working with software as hands-on as possible has just made another giant leap with the announcement of the Launch Control XL!
The Launch Control XL is fully integrated with Ableton Live, giving you hands-on control over your mixer, effects and EQ, with 24 LED-enhanced knobs, eight 60mm faders and 16 multi-colour buttons. The Launch Control XL lines up perfectly with Novation's hugely popular Launchpad S controller, giving you intuitive access to the Launch matrix and mixer parameters of each track in your project when used together... a powerful team indeed!

We were recently joined by Chris from Novation, who gave us an in-depth demonstration of the Novation Launch Control. Check it out in the video below.
The Launch Control is a compact MIDI controller, which is designed to work with software such as Ableton and FL Studio. It features 16 assignable dials and 8 launchpads, allowing you to launch clips, toggle effects, control your mixer and get hands-on with your instruments and effects. Although the Launch Control can work as a standalone piece of kit (if connected to your computer), it is also the perfect partner for any Launchpad, allowing you to expand the hands-on experience for more intricate performances.

New Zealand singer-songwriter, Lorde, is an artist that you're likely to have heard of, having, at the age of just 16, already enjoyed chart-topping success in the UK, US and Australia with her single, 'Royals'. She's also got two Grammy Awards under her belt for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Not bad at all!

The Hood Internet are best known for their mashup mixtapes and their quest to deliver dancefloor-friendly tracks to different cities across the world.
Their set-up revolves around two MacBooks, each running Ableton Live software, with each connected to a separate Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface. The Scarlett 2i4s are then hooked up to separate channels of a DJ mixer, allowing them to control each signal in the same way you would if you had two turntables fed into a mixer.
In addition to this, the Scarlett 2i4's preamps make it an ideal interface for use in a home or mobile recording set-up, and that's exactly what The Hood Internet do, running one alongside Ableton again.
