Launchpad and Launch Control XL are pretty darn sturdy. Although most people use them for producing, designed 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.
- 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
