Novation Launchpad Gear Review - Novation Launchpad: Who's Pad?
Novation surprised everyone by bringing out an Ableton Live dedicated control surface. Like Akai's APC? Not really, and obviously not at the same price.
BeyondR's review"Buy it if you're an Ableton user."
The price overall is quite great for the product, those 64 pads can make a huge difference in your mixing, they can really boost your creativity on a whole new level.
This pad controller works pretty great in launching clips and samples on time, it has the possibility to connect up to 6 Launchpads at a time (which is completely great and unique).
The reason why this pad is so great it's because how well it fits with Ableton Live program, it doesn't require a source supply, only a usb connection.
Also you can work in Session View either Arrangement View, which is quite handy, the
multi-color 64-button grid provide instant session overview.
This pad can be used to create grooves, racks, creating beats and triggering samples in real time, you can even make it work as a midi controller,creating custom MIDI maps with 72 of its buttons transmitting either CC or MIDI note data, so you can basically play with this pad and create melodies.
Connectivity type: USB, it doesn't require a power supply.
It's compatible with Windows XP or Vista, Mac OS X .
Another great thing you can do with Novation LaunchPad is to control the volume, paning, amount of sends, muting, and many other cool features.
Without a doubt, this pad makes the musical process seem much more fun and creative, with its use you can create some great trance groove and even melodies.
I really like the feeling of the buttons and the way they respond to the command.
I would buy and rebuy this product, I really think it makes a huge difference for Ableton users like me.
johnrae's review"I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!!!"
What I don't like most about this unit is that for some reason (and I can't understand why) when you a pad down, it will "double-click." What I mean is that you push it down and it will "click" once, then you push a little harder and it will "click" again. Every trigger reacts on the first click, so the second click is completely unnecessary. In reality, its not a big deal, it just feels weird and is a little annoying. As for my opinion on the price, I paid $180 for a brand new one shipped to my door. Overall, its functions make it worth every penny. But, when I first got it, it was smaller than I imagined (the person in the photo must have very small hands) and its made of very light weight plastic. For around $200 bucks, they could have used some cheap metal or something, that would have made this thing feel like a real professional piece of gear instead of a cheap toy. No sound quality from this device, only midi operation. I have a couple of M-audio boards that I was using to trigger clips in ableton, but they don't even compare to this device, mainly because of the "light up" buttons. Yes, I do wish it was made of stronger/heavier material, but I would definitely make the same choice again.
I see it as a necessary extension of Live which allows you to completely disregard the computer when I play.

I use it for 2 years and it really is a good investment for any user of Ableton Live.
I have several more classic midi controller (fader / knob) but it was really the missing piece to my set up.
I like being able to switch to USER1 or USER2 to use features like MIDI keyboard. This provides another approach to the game live.
I also use it on other software, its not really oriented (Isadora, Pure Data or Processing). It lacks a power to make autonomous and use with hardware.
Lenzo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" NOVATION LAUNCHPAD"
Many buttons and large sizes compared to Akai (pimples).
Very easy to use, installation Ableton (8.2.2 minimum) very intuitive.
Effective to make precisely Live, but no interest in composing, this is also why I am separated.
djfacile's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Turn your launchpad with Aurex"
But Grace Aurex is like making acquisitin Ableton and Max and free !!!
Download the free 5 Modes on aurex.com and transform your launchpad in sequencer, remix recorder
a launchpad without Aurex C # is like a flat-chested girl !!
Better than Max and Gratos !!!!

Masher is a squenceur FX / FX device made with Ableton Live 8 Launchpad Novation. Send the track you want to start cutting the sheer pestle and rptant loop ... It works very well to give a lead. A boost from live play or even for the mix / mixing two tracks of original fawn
You can squence 4 DIFFERENT effects and the original track and you have a stamp on the LP to toggle between squenc track / Performs and clear and original track. On top of that if you have 6 and 2 master effects rpteurs beat.
The bridge is a sample sampling in real time and a remix device for the Novation Launchpad.
The sample thus includes a simulator vinyl position (as an effect, not for beatmatching
tracks or serious scratches) and an effects section. It uses two samplers to capture
while loop plays your song and you have the possibility to select one of the signal
samplers any time you want. You can remix and any processing you want: just a
loop, songs full when dj-ing or even in real time between a remix scene a group of steals.

looping.prod's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super intuitive"
About 2 weeks
Did you try many other models before buying it?
I had a Trigger Finger M-Audio, but did not suit me to trigger clip Live8
What is so special that you like most and least?
Plus: fully adapted for Ableton Live and Traktor trigger Hotcue in reduced size and for mobile use
Minimum: Not yet found, perhaps a wider range of colors to suit the pad color clips Live8
How do you rate the quality / price?
Given the opportunity to bargain (70 euros) ratio is perfect!
With experience, you do again this choice?
Without hesitation, unless the APC20 APC40 or cheaper, but then I doubt it!
