Launch Control makes creating electronic music way more fun. Its chunky knobs and multicoloured pads let you play your software like an instrument, by giving you hands-on control over any aspect of your sound that you like. It may be half the size of its big brother, Launch Control XL, but its 16 banks give you more than enough controls to get as creative as you like with your sound.
