The pads match your clip view colors in Ableton Live automatically, so if you're often playing in Session view, this is a big advantage.
Notes + Scales
Pads react to what you have selected when you're in Note mode - drum sounds will auto fill and instruments will display a chromatic keyboard for melody/chord creation. Scale mode works with your favourite DAW and even works with standalone synths.
Instead of being limited to just a controller connected to your computer, the Launchpad Pro is capable of controlling external MIDI devices as well!
Never hit a wrong note again! With the Scale function, simply press Launchpad Pro’s Shift and Note buttons, then choose from a roster of 32 keys and modes, from major and minor, through phrygian, whole tone and more. Once selected, Launchpad Pro’s 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads will assign themselves contiguously to only the notes of the selected scale, removing all the rest. Launchpad Pro is turned into a deeply expressive instrument that lets you focus on the music, rather than precise finger positions. Scale mode isn’t just for Ableton Live – you can use it to play virtual instruments in any other DAW, as well as your hardware synths. Launchpad Pro does not require connection to a computer; it can send MIDI via its 1/8th-inch output (and an included 5-pin Din adapter), so you can play external synths without a keyboard controller.
