If you're a Novation Launchpad user who's always fancied having just a few more knobs and buttons to play with, the company's new Launch Control could be for you.
Designed as a companion for the Launchpad, this compact controller brings six assignable knobs, eight three-colour launch pads, and four function keys to the party.
Of course, Launch Control can also be used on its own, both with your Mac/PC setup or an iPad (it's fully compatible with the Launchpad app). Specs are below – expect to see it in stores soon priced at $99.
