Components can be used to manage the templates stored on the Launch Control XL.
Components is a tool used to manage the firmware and templates for many of our products. You can either download the standalone application when you register your Launch Control XL to our customer portal, or you can access our web-based version in browsers that support webMIDI such as Chrome, Opera and Microsoft Edge from this link: https://components.novationmusic.com

Settings for the pots include the ability to set the CC number a control will send, the MIDI channel it sends on, the minimum and maximum values, the colour of the LED, and the LED MIDI channels which determines which channel the LED under the dial will respond to from incoming MIDI messages.
Using either Shift/Ctrl or clicking and dragging will allow you to select multiple controls at once, this is useful for editing the common settings these control share at once.
Settings for pads and buttons include the ability to set the control type (Note or CC), set the Press type to Momentary (press to turn a value on, release to set it off) or Toggle (press once for on value, press again for off).
Select a control to view its settings on the right, or click "Show Values" to see the value of each control simultaneously:
When ready, templates can be sent to the unit, or saved to your account or computer.
