Product Description

Launch Control XL is the ultimate mixer and device controller for Ableton Live. Immerse yourself in your music using eight 60mm faders and tweak your effects, devices and plug-ins with 24 LED-enhanced knobs and 16 multi-colour performance buttons.



Technical Specs

Used in tandem with Launchpad S’s powerful 64 button grid, Launch Control XL offers an unprecedented Live control experience. Whether you're triggering clips in the session view or playing drum racks with satisfying LED feedback; Launch Control XL aligns perfectly with Launchpad S's peerless 8x8 surface. You can even combine multiple units for some serious modular mayhem!

Complete with Ableton Live Lite, 1GB of world class Loopmasters sample content and rock-solid mixer integration straight out of the box, Launch Control XL will propel your Ableton Live experience to the next level.
Novation Control for Ableton Live
Launch Control XL integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, providing immediate hands-on control of mixer, effects and instruments.

24 High-Quality Knobs with Customisable Multi-Colour LEDs
Launch Control XL's impressive array of rotary controls illuminate to distinguish between sends, EQs or any other device. Solid, reliable and precise, each pot has a subtle centre notch for powerful EQ-style control, while being almost unnoticeable when unrequired.

The Ultimate Performance Combination
Take your music to the next level. Launch Control XL aligns perfectly with Launchpad†S to deliver the ultimate Ableton Live control experience.

Big Faders, Compact size
Ableton users need faders they can trust. Launch Control XL incorporates eight rugged 60mm faders for high-precision level control, all of which are MIDI re-mappable to envelopes, filters or anything else.

Personalise Your Own Control Layouts
Crafting the perfect mix has never been easier. The software editor included with Launch Control XL allows you to design your own templates, placing the power of Ableton right at your fingertips. You can even customise knobs with your own colours and effortlessly switch between your own mappings and Live's built-in functionality.

Unleash Your Creativity
Focus on the music, not on the screen. With 16 additional high-performance multi-colour buttons, Launch Control XL delivers instant control over all of Live's mixer and device parameters right out of the box. All controls are also freely re-assignable to any parameter you like.

Tough, Slim and Totally Gig-Able
Launch Control XL is road-ready to its core. Its nutted-down pots and super rugged build quality makes it tough enough to handle the most demanding live situation. It’s also fully USB bus powered, so you don’t even need a power supply.

Connects to Almost Anything
No set-up required: simply plug in and play on Mac, Windows and iOS. Launch Control XL is also class-compliant, so you can easily connect your iPad for immediate control of all MIDI-compatible iOS music software (Camera Connection Kit required).

Make Music with Ableton Out of the Box
Launch Control XL comes with Ableton Live Lite, the music production software favoured by countless leading artists, as well as an impressive collection of production-ready samples from the highly-esteemed Loopmasters.

Plug and Play with FL Studio and Other Software
Launch Control XL enjoys the same level of integration with FL Studio 11 as other Launch products. Supremely configurable and fully class-compliant, it's the ideal control surface for all your music and DJ software requirements.
Tough, portable and bus-powered – even from an iPad.

Eight factory templates and eight user templates allow you to create and save your
own control setups.
