The LP Pack from LDM Design is a further extension of the work you may have already seen on LDM Design website the home of such beauties as Manglerack & Hepta Delay.
Their first three devices for us combine into an awesome pack of MaxforLive Sequencers for the Novation LaunchPad, compatible with the MKI, MKII, S and MINI Variants.
Orbit is a circular step sequencer created for live performance. It was designed to overcome the limitations of an 8×8 grid to create a sequence of 16 steps. It includes live performance tools such as beat-repeat and effect triggers. There are a lot of hidden features without involving a complex menu system.
Paragome is a dynamic pattern instrument which creates automated arpeggios and melodies. It’s based on the classic Polygome app, made by Stretta for the monome. The 64-pad matrix is mapped to a selected scale, ranging in pitch from bottom to top. Holding a pad will trigger a selected sequence from that root note. I have expanded the device from the design of the original to increase the functionality and allow for multiple different patterns to play at once.
S7epper_mk2 is based on part of the 7up device for the original grid controller, the monome, with expanded features for the Launchpad. The device lets you sequence 7 midi notes across the grid, and allows 8 ‘pages’ of patterns, which can also be sequenced. Nearly all of the options and functions can be accessed directly from the device itself without any need for mouse clicking. It also has presets which mean that many patterns can be saved and loaded to the device within the same Live set.
Nexus allows you to use a maximum of 8 LDM Launchpad apps simultaneously. You can build a powerful live performance setup using s7epper, Paragome, Orbit, mLPr and Polyboing. You can also use multiple instances of the mLPr and Polyboing devices.
PLEASE NOTE: This pack is not compatible with the LaunchPad PRO
