It’s been 10 years since the first Launchpad was released. Novation announced 2 new versions yesterday, a full-sized comprehensive version and a compact version that is suited for someone who travels a lot. The Launchpad with Ableton Live is a very popular combination.
The Launchpad X is the MIDI controller for live use and simple clip-and-scene triggers. Launchpad X has 64 velocities and touch-sensitive RGB pads. According to Novation, the pads are better than ever when it comes to response.
Are you traveling a lot? Novation made the Launchpad Mini, which might be suited for you. It’s the most compact and wearable 64-pad MIDI grid controller.
Are you interested in the precise functionality and comparisons with other versions? We will be posting a full review soon here on Inside Audio!
