The third Novation product to be launched this week, Launchpad Mini is a compact version of the Novation Launchpad, featuring 64 three-colour launch pads and 16 performance buttons that enable you to produce and perform music with your iPad - as well as your PC or Mac. Here's what Novation has to say about it...
Launchpad Mini is part of the growing 'Launch' family of music-making gear. Partner Launchpad Mini with its bigger brother Launchpad S, grow your studio with a Launchkey or Launchkey Mini, and add high quality rotary controls with Launch Control. They all work together to give you control over the Novation iPad apps – including the Launchpad iPad app and the Launchkey iPad app.
Use Launchpad Mini with the free Launchpad iPad app to play great sounding loops and control DJ style effects, download professionally produced sound packs from within the app, and import your own samples for even more individual performances. When you're ready, share your creations with the world. An included copy of Ableton Live Lite ensures that, when you connect Launchpad Mini to your PC or Mac, you'll experience the same powerful functionality as Launchpad S.
Launchpad Mini is powered by your iPad, and connects directly to your iPad with the Apple Camera Connection Kit (not included).
