Description

Launchpad Mini MK3 is Novation's most compact and portable method for taking full control of your Ableton Live session. Please note that you will need to install and authorise Ableton Live Lite first and then install and authorise the upgrade software to the full version. Live draws a red rectangle around the area of the Session View controlled by the Launchpad, while the Launch Control (in its clip launch mode) selects, or follows, the currently selected scene; the two areas of control are independent. Giving you everything you’ll need to start performing within Ableton Live, plus its compact size means this can easily be put in your back and go with you anywhere. Integrate immediately with your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera adapter (not included).

As far as I can tell, the Launchpad Mini is identical in interface and operation to the Launchpad S: they share the same programmer's guide, and Live works with the Mini as if it were its full-sized cousin. Out of the box it’s surprisingly compact (a few mm smaller than the Mk2) and visually at least looks like a scaled-down Launchpad X. Launchpad Pro is the simplest and best way to create dynamic, expressive performances in Ableton Live, or any music software.

XLN Addictive Keys – Access one of four virtual keyboards when you register your first piece of Novation or Focusrite hardware. I gave the Launchpad S a thumbs-up, and if anything I'm more impressed by the Launchpad Mini because of its handy size and classy finish.

Clearing and duplicating cells and quantising of the notes recorded into a cell are effortlessly controlled through dedicated buttons. The Launchkey Mini is one of a new range of scaled-down products offering similar features to existing products in a smaller form factor — based, in this instance, on the Launchkey 25. In this review I'm going to concentrate on compatibility with Ableton Live, since many of the controllers' features are aimed at Live, and all three come with a licence for the entry-level (but very capable) Ableton Live Lite.

comes Live Loops, bringing cell-based looping playback and performance to the popular music software platform for the first time. Being a rookie myself i can assure you that this is the right choice for anyone wanting to get started. There are no pitch or modulation wheels, no numerical LED readout, and (unsurprisingly) no aftertouch. Accurate, continuous control of the mixer is clearly the main selling point for the Launch Control, and in operation things are smooth and responsive.
