Launch Control XL as generic controller on iPad

I have a Launchpad S and I am really enjoying the LaunchPad app on my iPad. I am using it through audiobus with a couple of effects apps and I want to use the Launch Control XL to control those apps. Right now, I am using a Korg NanoKontrol and it is working perfectly well, it's just a bit too limited as it only has 8 knobs and 8 faders.

Is it possible to have the Launch Control XL as a generic midi controller on the iPad when the LaunchPad app is running? I hope it will fill this need for me. I haven't yet made the purchase, but if this works, it could be the perfect controller for me.

Thanks for any input!
