Novation Announces Launch Control XL
Novation has announced the Launch Control XL, a mixer designed to help Ableton users focus more on their music and less on their laptop.
The Launch Control XL is built with 24 knobs arranged in rows of eight, mirroring Ableton’s mixer interface. The controller is also equipped with 16 multicolored buttons and eight rugged faders, all of which are integrated with Ableton Live from the moment they’re plugged in. Additionally, all controls are entirely reassignable to any other parameter. The Launch Control XL is also built sturdy and fully USB bus-powered, making it ultraportable and gig-ready.
The Launch Control XL is packaged with Ableton Live Lite and 1 GB of Loopmasters sample content, and the unit is plug-and-play compatible with Mac, PC, and iPad (via a Camera Connection adapter). The Launch Control XL can also combine with a Launchpad S for enhanced performance.
