Novation's Launchpad S is a powerful 64-button music controller that lets you make music or mix tracks using an intuitive grid of multi-color buttons. It comes with Ableton Live Lite, used by some of the world's top DJs and producers, and it supports other grid-based music applications such as FL Studio. Whether you're a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to play your software. Use the 64-button grid to launch and manipulate clips, trigger loops, fire off effects, control your mixer, and more. It also triggers loops and effects in the new Novation Launchpad app for iPad; a totally self-standing music performance app that hosts sounds and effects. Hooked up to your computer-or iPad-via USB, Launchpad S is fully bus powered, and it's lightweight and easy to carry. Launchpad S is the evolution of Novation's best-selling Launchpad controller, with brighter buttons, significantly faster refresh rate and it supports multiple software. It even converts your iPad into a grid-based music system via a Camera Connection Kit (not included). Novation has created a Launchpad app for iPad, which hosts its own sounds and enables you to trigger loops with your Launchpad S hardware. There is also a range of effects that can be triggered using the buttons. Launchpad S integrates with FL Studio's performance mode, so you can trigger clips and get hands-on control of powerful new performance zone features. Use the buttons to sketch out beats with drum racks, and assign them to additional functions. You can control almost any music software using Novation's award-winning Automap control software-and Launchpad S is fully MIDI class-compliant so it drives any MIDI application. It also comes with a software version of Novation's analog mono-synth-the Bass Station. You can use this as a plug-in within Ableton, FL Studio or other DAWs. There is also a sample pack supplied by world leading sample producers-Loopmasters.

In 2013, Jake Ducey, a 19 year old college dropout independently released his first book entitled Into The Wind, about quitting college basketball to backpack the world. Without a publisher or budget, he made it to the top 300 of all books on Amazon. The book became a viral sensation, enabling then 21-year-old Jake to build a strong and loyal on-line following, give a TEDX Talk, and travel the nation to speak to over 100 schools and corporations, in just a year and a half.
The demand for more of Ducey started almost immediately, and after aligning himself with the legendary literary agent Bill Gladstone (Waterside Productions), then 22-year-old Ducey secured a publishing deal with Penguin/Random-House for his second book, The Purpose Principles. It became the largest deal of its kind for the iconic publishing house. In fact, Ducey is the youngest motivational author to ever sign a book deal with Penguin/Random-House.
Through Jake's quick rise to success, has he been taken under the wing of today's most successful authors, "success coaches" and thoughts leaders. From Jack Canfield, creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, who TIME declared "the publishing phenomenon of the decade," to John Gray, author Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, which is one of the topselling hardcover nonfiction books ever.
