Launchpad and Launch Control XL are pretty darn sturdy. Although most people use them for producing, we designed them to withstand all the rigours of live gigging as well.
Accidents do happen, however. All it takes is an angry baggage handler and you could be back to controlling Ableton with your mouse. For that reason and many more, you really should protect your precious controller. We think the best way to do that is with this neoprene sleeve: it’s super lightweight, shock-absorbing and it zips up with a really satisfying zzzrrrrp sound.
Plus, because we designed it specifically for our Launch products, it fits either Launchpad or Launch Control XL like a glove and doesn't add any extra bulk to the unit either, so it still won’t take up much room in your bag.
Doesn't weigh you down because it's super lightweight
Easily fits into your bag because it's barely bigger than the actual controller
Absorbs shocks and bumps, both accidental and malicious
