    Novation Launchpad - "Buy it if you're an Ableton user."

    09/03/12

    What I love about it, it's the design, I really love what Novation did with its interface and how they managed to put something quite original for Ableton users. The price overall is quite great for the product, those 64 pads can make a huge differe…

    06/21/12

    The Novation Launchpad combines elements of a mixer, a sequencer, and an effects rack all in one 64 button pad designed to interface with Ableton Live. As I mainly use Ableton I'm not sure whether you can program it to work with other DAW's, but the …

    05/13/12

    The Novation Launchpad is a controller built especially for Ableton Live, meant to improve workflow and turn Live into a performance tool. It does exactly that. And it's AWESOME. It is pretty easy to set up, you plug it in and it automaps to Live. Th…

    Akai MPD18 - "Full sized pads in a small, super portable package"

    01/22/12

    What I love most about this unit is it is quite small and light compared to my MPD 24. I can put this in my laptop case with my MBP and still have room to spare. It also is much better when you are traveling (car/plane) to have this smaller unit as…

    Arturia Spark - "classic "

    10/06/11

    The spark is a great forward thinking idea put forth by Arturia. I wasn't sure what to expect considering this was Arturia's first walk in the park with a drum type machine and it was to be my first drum machine, but I have been very happy with the r…

    Arturia Spark - "One of my favorite drum machines"

    09/08/11

    Totally independant unit. Tons of drum sounds. This unit is very much its own thing. I'm not sure I can compare it to any other drum machine. The capability is well on par with the price point. The stock content is actually very good. 808 drums…
