Product Description for the Novation LaunchPad Mini
Launchpad Mini is the compact version of the celebrated Novation Launchpad performance controller. Designed for the iPad generation, Launchpad Mini features 64 three colour launch pads that let you play loops, sounds, effects and more to produce and perform music immediately with your iPad - and your Windows or Mac.
Designed to get you making music straight out of the box, Launchpad Mini is entirely bus-powered from your iPad, PC, or Mac. It comes with a suite of software, including Ableton Live Lite, for your Mac or PC - plus the Launchpad App for iPad. Launchpad for iPad includes a pre-loaded professional sound library that you can use instantly to create unique performances and turns Launchpad Mini into an integrated performance instrument. In addition to the built-in sounds, you can import additional sound packs or even your own sounds when you need them. Complete your performance with filters and DJ style effects - and then share your creations with the world.
Launchpad Mini is both compact and sturdy enough to withstand life on the road; it's easy to transport and instantly ready to perform. It’s lightweight too - smaller and lighter than an iPad. Launchpad Mini is also totally bus-powered; there's no need for a power socket whether on your iPad or computer.
Launchpad Mini is part of the growing range of Launch products from Novation. Use multiple Launch family products together to unleash awesome performance possibilities: pair Launchpad Mini with its big brother the Launchpad S, enhance your lead or bassline capability with Launchkey or Launchkey Mini performance keyboards, and add high-quality rotary controls with Launch Control. Use them together with the Launchpad and Launchkey Apps for iPad.
Launchpad Mini integrates perfectly with Ableton Live, just like the Launchpad S. Trigger clips and scenes, control volumes and sends and much more – and Ableton Live Lite is included with your Launchpad Mini. Plus, get hands-on control of FL Studio 11 using Launchpad Mini’s 64 pad grid. Stickers are included to label the keys as you want.
