Music Creator 5 has MIDI and you can connect any MIDI controller to it. If it's a USB powered device you probably don't need anything else but the controller, if it doesn't have USB you would need a MIDI interface to connect your controller.
The launchpad will work better in Ableton, as it's developed for use with that program, but it can be used as a MIDI device as well, details here: http://www.ableton.com/launchpad
Whether or not Music Creator 5 itself is any good I don't know, I use FL Studio Producer Edition and Ableton Live myself, FL Studio being my favorite. You can check it here: http://demo.flstudio.com
