Step 1: Launch Arcade
There are several ways to get started with Launchpad. If you already own Launchpad hardware, you can install Ableton Live Lite for free, or connect to the Launchpad App on your iOS device.
The easiest way, however, is with Launchpad Arcade — you don't even need a Launchpad!
Launchpad Arcade is a place where you can get straight into making music with Launchpad's familiar clip-based user interface. You can perform tracks from an extensive loop library, and you can even design and play lightshows, too — if you already have a Launchpad device. Launchpad Arcade works inside your browser (Google Chrome is recommended). All you need is a computer and an internet connection to get going.
Launchpad Arcade is ready for players at all levels. Whether you have zero music-making experience, or you're an intermediate or advanced user, the quick setup guide will fast-track you to the action.
