Launchpad X gives you everything you need right at your fingertips so you can spend less time clicking a mouse and more time making and performing music. Never worry about being out of tune – Dynamic Note and Scale modes let you effortlessly play perfectly in-key basslines, melodies, chords and leads. Step back from the mouse, get hands on and dive into your tracks.
Launchpad X & Live Loops in Logic Pro X
Live Loops brings cell-based looping playback and performance to Logic Pro X for the first time. With Launchpad X as your Live Loops controller, use cells to sketch out arrangement ideas, fast, and record your performances. Setup is automatic: just select your Launchpad from Logic’s Control Surface Setup, then rotate the device 90 degrees to display the Live Loops grid. (Logic Pro X 10.5 is required.)
