The LaunchPad wasn’t the first 8 x 8 Grid Controller but it’s definitely become the most popular!

Treading ground that we’d seen from the Monome the Novation LaunchPad presented a simple 8 x 8 grid of clip launching buttons for Ableton Live. In it’s first iteration it added a trip-color arrangement to show where clips were present, playing or recording.

Novation we’re obviously onto a winner and so the LaunchPad MINI joined the fray before we saw upgrades to full RGB buttons to represent the colors of clips and then the release of the bigger brother the LaunchPad PRO with it’s velocity sensitive buttons more akin to the Ableton Push.

As the second controller that we hacked to create a MaxforLive Performance template it still holds an affectionate place in our hearts and rarely will the LaunchPad MINI leave our bag when we travel.

It’s only downside is a lack of knobs and faders, but when you’ve got the LaunchControl XL in the line up you’re pretty much sorted!
