imgNew York, NY (April 5, 2013)—Novation has released Launchpad S, the update to its grid controller Ableton Live: the Novation Launchpad, which now works with the iPad.

The 64 tri-color controller can launch loops and clips, trigger drums and samples, and also control effects, volumes, mutes, solos and more.

A grid of 64 ‘launch’ pads allows users to control music software such as Ableton Live and FL Studio, and is specifically designed to control loops and clips and trigger effects within the mixer. The Launchpad S includes a copy of Ableton Live Launchpad, custom software control for FL Studio, and iPad support, all with 64 colored controllers to create loops and clips.

Launchpad S can be connected to, and powered by, an iPad using a standard Camera Connection Kit. The app features a 1 GB sample pack of brand new hand-picked loops curated by Loopmasters, ranging from drum samples to artist packs.
