The Launchkey Mini is lightweight and has a decent feel and action for a mini-keyboard, not to mention good control options for Ableton Live. The two-octave keyboard can send on any MIDI channel, and can be transposed down by as much as four octaves or up by five, giving it access to the entire MIDI note range. While the precise area of a Launchpad's influence is indicated clearly on screen, the 'position' of the Launch Control is less clear: the current scene is indicated, but the device's horizontal position (ie.

You're also expected to know which device controls fall into which banks, unless you don't mind exploring as you go along. In addition to a copy of Ableton Live, Launchpad Mini MK3 will arrive with a massive library of free samples and software for you to get your teeth into. We recommend that you update to the latest version as previous versions of Ableton Live do not include the Launchpad Mini integration. The Mini units use micro-USB connectors, which are smaller and potentially more fragile than their full-sized counterparts, but I didn't encounter any issues with them. I could imagine an enhanced control script within Live showing the Launch Control as a single-row-height marquee to indicate track selection — or perhaps some mechanism for locking the Launch Control and Launchpad to the same set of tracks.Trigger samples and effects, play on the piano roll and much more – it’s a brand new way to play FL Studio.

If you opt for the browser mode you can also launch it from the mass storage device folder that appears on your computer desktop when you plug up the Launchpad – a nice touch.

One advantage of the smaller size is that the pads have a more solid action when pressed; on the full-sized Launchpad there's a tiny amount of wobble because the pads are so large. The Launchpad Mini MK2 is compact enough to chuck in your bag so you can take it on the road with you and built to last. Clearing and duplicating cells and quantising of the notes recorded into a cell are effortlessly controlled through dedicated buttons. Novation have delivered an intriguing clutch of MIDI controllers aimed at the laptop or iPad musician.

Pioneering companies such as Softube, Klevgrand and many more have provided you with a selection of their products – granting you the tools needed to increase the variety and quality of your sounds. Extend your setup using Ableton Link, technology built into Live that keeps multiple devices in perfect time over a network connection. Wherever you happen to be in the world, you can rely on a three-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault.

Start making music today with the Launchpad Mini, hands-on controls, tonnes of sounds in the box plus a step-by-step interactive platform to help get you set up. Since Live Lite has a maximum of eight tracks, you won't be aware of this behaviour if that's the software you're using. Launchpad Mini displays your Ableton Live session view on 64 mini pads, which let you trigger clips, play drum racks, control your mixer, FX and make amazing performance videos for YouTube.

XLN Addictive Keys – Access one of four virtual keyboards when you register your first piece of Novation or Focusrite hardware. I briefly tested the Launchpad Mini and Launch Control in combination, and predictably the setup works fine, although the two devices look embarrassingly mismatched. Different note velocities produce different red/amber/green colour mixes; alternatively, there's a documented System Exclusive protocol for more detailed control.New sound packs: Voice Box for experimental vocal manipulation, Mood Reel for modern narrative-setting, and Drone Lab for sustained tones and textures. Launchpad X and Launchpad Mini [MK3] devices no longer need to be rotated to properly display the Live Loops grid, as was required in v10. The Launchpad Mini is my favourite of the set: neat, solid, stylish and potentially the most open-ended. This app will allow you to plug the Launchpad Mini MK3 directly into your iPad with an externally powered Lightning to USB-3 adapter, and layer DJ-style effects to chop and change your sound as you see fit.
