Description

With Live's two modes of working, and a ton of creative tools and sounds with endless ways to combine them, the only limit on your music is your imagination. Connect Live to any MIDI controller – even MPE-compatible hardware, which lets you add bends, slides and pressure to individual notes in a chord, make subtle expression variations and create evolving sonic textures with your hands. All the pads are backlit with multicoloured LEDs that show you which clips are loaded, playing and recording.

Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette - High quality reverb and tape deck emulation plug-ins, to add some space or take your sound back to the golden age of cassette tapes. The octave up/down buttons attempt to show the amount of transposition by variable brightness, which isn't terribly successful: some kind of flashing pattern would be better. The simplistic stop, solo, and mute controls on the top of the unit means you will be spending less time using the computer. Three Custom Modes – use Components to customise mappings and control anything MIDI easily from Launchpad Mini. MIDI Polyphonic Expression: allows MPE-capable devices to control multiple parameters of every note in real time for more expressive instrumental performances.The user section lets you customise your pad controller; this allows you to create a template based on the requirements of your live performances. Thanks to its sleek new low-profile design, this MIDI controller is perfect and ready to go in any situation.

The seamless Ableton Live integration means the Launchpad Mini will bring your sessions to your fingertips. If you're used to using a Launchpad to control Live, you'll be aware that its support for mixer control is crude at best: a column of eight pads delivers a resolution of 6dB, at best, between successive volume levels (and 9dB between send levels). Over the years, Novation have come to dominate the MIDI controller space, making everything from full-sized MIDI keyboards down to handheld fader-, knob- and button-boxes aimed at composers, performers, DJs and VJs alike.As you might expect, switching banks — or instruments — tends to leave the knobs in the wrong position, but that's a general problem with hardware potentiometers rather than encoders. Switching between them involves holding down the Factory button for about half a second, a delay that's slightly irritating. You can combine Launchpad Mini with any other Launch products, like Launch Control and Launchkey Mini, to create a compact and hands-on studio setup.

Two of these (Drums and Keys) are preconfigured as drum grids and a chromatic keyboard respectively, and the third (User) is blank. Launchpad, with its 8x8 grid of colourful and expressive pads, extends the Live Loop experience and makes the Logic workflow more hands-on.The Launch Control is intended to be a companion to the Launchpad S grid controller — although it's also perfectly usable in isolation — while the Launchpad Mini and Launchkey Mini are individual units. The new Novation Launchpad Mini MK2 version of the compact USB controller has 64 multicoloured backlit pads, 16 extra function buttons and software for PC and MAC including Ableton Live Lite.
