The Mini Ableton Live Grid Controller

This is 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, all while making amazing performance videos for YouTube. It's just like a Launchpad, but smaller!

Like Launchpad, Just Smaller

Like 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. It's just as durable and gig-ready, the only difference is that it's even more portable and takes up less space in your bag or on your desk.

As well as launching clips, you can use the mini 64-pad grid to play drum racks, create awesome light show videos and 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…

Connect To Just About Anything

Connect To Just About Anything

Launchpad Mini works with anything because it's bus-powered via USB and totally class-compliant. You can use the 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.
