New Support for Launchpad in Logic Pro X

Apple’s release of Logic Pro X 10.5 comes Live Loops, bringing cell-based looping playback and performance to the popular music software platform for the first time. Launchpad, with its 8x8 grid of colourful and expressive pads, extends the Live Loop experience and makes the Logic workflow more hands-on.

Setup is automatic, just plug in a compatible Launchpad and Logic’s Control Surface Setup window will appear to notify a connection, then rotate the device 90 degrees to match the layout of the Live Loops grid. You can even attach multiple Launchpads to use them simultaneously, with additional options for the top-down orientation of your devices. Set up can be adjusted for control either 90 degrees to the right or to the left, rotation is always required.

Cells in the Live Loops grid can contain one-shots, loops, MIDI patterns and automation data, and can be dragged and dropped or recorded live into Logic’s tracks area, to build song arrangements quickly.

Here’s a list of compatible Launchpad devices. There is currently no support for Launchpad Pro [MK3].
