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.

M4SONIC shot to fame through Youtube, when he began uploading videos of his out-of-this world performances with the Novation Launchpad. In fact, many of his compositions actually feature more than one Launchpad, where he uses one hand to trigger drum clips and the other to play melodic riffs.
After racking up millions of views, M4SONIC's videos catapulted him into the limelight and he's now getting booked to play sell-out gigs, as well as releasing his own tracks.
For this competition, M4SONIC (in association with Novation) is giving you the chance to remix his track, Virus, using the FREE Novation Launchpad App. Two winners will each bag a Launchpad S and Launch Control combo, but that's not all, as one of these winners will also be crowned the overall champion and get a 1 hour masterclass with M4SONIC!

Although it can be used as a standalone controller, the Novation Launch Control was also created to be the ideal partner for existing Launchpad owners. The Launch Control provides you with 16 dials, 8 additional tri-colour launch pads, plus navigation buttons. You can use the controls of the Launch Control to adjust track levels, instrument and effect parameters, pan positions and more.

Novation's hugely popular FREE Launchpad iPad App has now been updated, with a number of bug fixes and a brand new Audio Import function! This is something that users have been asking for since the release of the Launchpad App and it now means that you aren't limited by the sounds that come with it. If you've got some of your own WAV or AIFF samples and loops then you can now import them into the App using Dropbox (free Dropbox account required), assign them to pads of your choice and then trigger them with the App. The Launchpad App also features time-stretching so that all your loops will stay in perfect time with each other.
