Launchpad Mini

The Mini Ableton Live Grid Controller

Our most compact and affordable Launchpad grid instrument for Ableton Live. 64 mini pads for triggering clips, playing drum racks, controlling your mixer and doing just about anything else in Live, all while making amazing multicoloured performance videos for YouTube. It's just like a Launchpad, but smaller!

Same Launchpad, Just Smaller

If you use Ableton Live, you need a Launchpad. It displays your session view on 64 multicoloured pads, letting you launch multiple clips at once and control anything else in Live. It's an evolution in creating electronic music and this mini version does all the same cool stuff as the normal Launchpad. The only difference is that it's exactly 22.917% smaller, so it hardly takes up any room. It's also built like a tank, so you don't have to worry about throwing it around.

Make Something Spectacular

As well as launching clips, you can use the mini 64-pad grid to play drum racks, create awesome light show videos and even control your mixer. There are also separate buttons around the outside of the grid, which you can use to apply killer FX or assign to whichever triggers and controls you fancy. Just imagine the possibilities if you combine this with Max for Live…

Get Started Immediately

Forget about power sockets and drivers: Launchpad Mini is fully USB bus-powered, totally class-compliant and comes with everything you need to get started, including Ableton Live Lite.

You can even use your grid to control FL Studio’s performance mode, or grab a Camera Connect Kit and use it with your iPad® to control Launchpad App. If you want to get really experimental, connect multiple Launchpad Minis together or build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio setup by combining with Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey.
