After a huge response at Musikmesse, the Novation Launchpad S is finally shipping on April 16th.

With brighter LEDs and total portability, the Launchpad S works with even more software, including Novation's Free Launchpad iPad app, letting you trigger loops and remix on-the-fly.

The Launchpad App is a free self-contained music making and performance experience, the perfect introduction to the world of Launchpad.
