    i can use that whit traktor pro 2?

  • leavesremix

    I don’t see the appeal personally. I’d rather have a normal sized Launchpad! The mini isn’t small enough to make a significant savings on space, but it is small enough to make it much more difficult to play and use.

    • Jonathan

      The price appeals to me more.

      • leavesremix

        I original launchpad had a similar price later in its lifespan from what i remember. The S seems a bit overpriced to me, so if I were to get one, it would likely be the mini based on that alone.

  • Scott Frost

    Why bother with the S at all then?

    I really wish that I could use my own samples with the launchpad app! I would be even happier if ableton made an ipad app.

    • davidtmusic

      PS, if anyone knows of an ipad app capable of playing back samples locked to a clock, please let me know!

    Please, please, please… someone tell Novation to get over the bi-color LEDs and move on to Full Color, Velocity Sensitive pads (or maybe even buttons). Red, Yellow, and Green isn’t cutting it anymore… did they corner the market on bi-color LEDs?

    • doclvly

      for some people full color LED isn’t necessary. I remember when I was whining that there wasn’t a cheap push out there yet, but to be honest if your making music it shouldn’t matter. You should know your instrument and your songs.

      • DJ_ForcedHand

        Novation makes “In Control” ( velocity sensitive, bi-color LED lit) pads on the LaunchKey Mini. I don’t expect it’ll be long until Novation brings that technology to a LaunchPad… so that’ll be half the problem addressed.

        The reason I want more colors is that I (and probably others out there) already use different colors to differentiate different parts of a song by a specific color. I get that the LaunchPad is designed as a “clip launcher”, but Novation made it because that’s what people were demanding and it was less expensive than the Akai APC 20. I don’t need all the features of the Ableton Push on a device, but I need a few core elements now that I’ve been spoiled by using devices with full color and velocity sensitive pads.

    Personally I mainly use ableton for DJing along with my UC33e. Launchpad mini is probably gonna be the perfect addition for clip control. Something I was looking a long time now.

  • bradips

    i doubt that you have something like monome but it is a really cool product

  • jigsaw

    bought launchpad S 1 month back and now i read this ..

  • coolout

    never mind. found it.

  • Mike Graham

    Actually a brilliant idea. Would be a great apc40 alternative for travelling and playing in tight places.

    • Mike Graham

      Any idea on price? I am guessing $99 US

      • Dan White

        Yep, can now confirm that street price will be $99!

    • DJ_ForcedHand

      Especially with the LaunchControl (also $99 in October).

  • coolout

    Has Novation posted a pic of the mini and launchpad side-by-side? Just how small is it.

    • Dan White

      Yes:

  • dj crossfade

    my launchpad had a baby i never been so proud (tears up with joy)
