Novation MK2 Launchpad Mini Compact USB Grid Controller for Ableton Live
About this deal
Symphony Tech Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, registration number 716065. MPE compatibility: get your hands on an MPE controller and add bends, slides and pressure for each individual note in a chord, make subtle expression variations, morph between chords, and create evolving sonic textures. There's no way of launching an entire scene, unfortunately, nor is there access to the tracks' Clip Stop buttons; for these actions you'll need to add an actual Launchpad or some other controller. XLN Addictive Keys – Access one of four virtual keyboards when you register your first piece of Novation or Focusrite hardware.
RGB pads – RGB pads give you a perfect reflection of your Ableton Live session, making it easier than ever to see your clips. Even so, on the upside, the Mini Mk3 is a much more customisable MIDI controller, and in many ways offers an overall slicker user experience than its predecessor. 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. This is a more basic much smaller version of its bigger brothers with less features and the pads aren’t pressure sensitive, but I only wanted it for launching clips and a bit of finger drumming anyway.The Launch Control and Launchpad S make a very effective control system for Live: you'd still use the Launchpad as a clip control surface, especially since it provides scene control which the Launch Control does not, while the Launch Control itself provides accurate mixer control, access to devices, and an independent row of clip control buttons, offering more flexibility when working with the Live Session.
Includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station virtual instrument and 1GB of Loopmasters samples.Symphony Tech Limited is acting as a credit broker offering finance products from Omni Capital Retail Finance Limited. Components has a number of widgets including unipolar and bipolar faders (horizontal and vertical), chromatic and scale specific keyboards, 4x4 drum grid, MIDI note button, MIDI CC button and MIDI Program Change. 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. We recommend that you update to the latest version as previous versions of Ableton Live do not include the Launchpad Mini integration. The Launchpad Mini Mk3 is now fully compatible with Live Loops, the cell-based looping playback and performance feature, thanks to Apple releasing Logic Pro version 10.
Find settings you like and save them as Macro snapshots to create builds, drops and instant variations during your performance. Cells in the Live Loops grid can contain one-shots, loops, MIDI patterns and automation data, and can be dragged and dropped or recorded live into Logic’s tracks area, to build song arrangements quickly. Launchpad Mini is our most compact, portable and lightweight grid controller, so you never have to leave it at home. 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. RGB pads lead to a whole host of powerful new creative options, resulting in an extremely versatile piece of kit - just check the vid featuring our man KiNK below!Use Novation Components - our online hub for all things Novation - to customise MIDI mappings, and control almost anything; three custom modes mean you can design how this compact grid controller works for you - you're only limited by your imagination.
