About this deal

Thanks to its sleek new low-profile design, this MIDI controller is perfect and ready to go in any situation. Download all the software you want with step-by-step video guides to get you set up with Ableton Live and making music in minutes.

At this stage I'll refer you to the Launchpad S review, since everything I said there applies equally to the Launchpad Mini.Softube Time and Tone bundle – made up of four of Softube's world class plug-ins: reverb, delay, an easy to use mastering tool and distortion. To get you started, Mini Mk3 ships with Ableton Live 10 Lite, a two-month trial for Splice, and add-on software from Softube, Klevgrand, XLN Audio and Sound Collective. I think one day when I have more space I will upgrade to the X but for now I am very satisfied with this little fellow. Mode three is for device control: the first four knobs in each row control a bank of parameters, while the pads allow for selection between eight parameter banks. Please give us the reason for your assessment in the following text box and – if possible – your e-mail address for further questions.

The Launchkey Mini is lightweight and has a decent feel and action for a mini-keyboard, not to mention good control options for Ableton Live. The Launch Key Mini's build quality might not live up to that of its siblings, but otherwise these three controllers have a lot going for them. The Launchpad and Launch Control line up nicely, and Live is happy to co-operate with both devices at once.Cells in the Live Loops grid can contain one-shots, loops, MIDI patterns and automation data, and can be dragged and dropped or recorded live into Logic’s tracks area, to build song arrangements quickly. Includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station virtual instrument and 1GB of Loopmasters samples. Keep the creative momentum going with the new Custom Mode keystroke widget and assign DAW shortcuts to your launchpad for a faster workflow and more intuitive creation. Launchpad Mini MK3 is Novation's most compact and portable method for taking full control of your Ableton Live session.

Extend your setup using Ableton Link, technology built into Live that keeps multiple devices in perfect time over a network connection. We recommend that you update to the latest version as previous versions of Ableton Live do not include the Launchpad Mini integration. Over the years, Novation have come to dominate the MIDI controller space, making everything from full-sized MIDI keyboards down to handheld fader-, knob- and button-boxes aimed at composers, performers, DJs and VJs alike. Launchpad Mini displays your Ableton Live session view on 64 mini pads, which let you trigger clips, play drum racks, control your mixer, FX and make amazing performance videos for YouTube. Sales Managers have the ability to set-up and manage LaunchPad user accounts, please ask the relevant manager in your BMW centre to grant you access.I gave the Launchpad S a thumbs-up, and if anything I'm more impressed by the Launchpad Mini because of its handy size and classy finish.

Note chance and velocity chance: set the probability that a MIDI note or drum hit will occur and define ranges for velocity probability to generate pattern variations and humanize dynamics. Additionally, the USB-C connector means connectivity speeds are fast and latency is lower than ever.Pioneering companies such as Softube, Klevgrand and many more have provided you with a selection of their products – granting you the tools needed to increase the variety and quality of your sounds. Regular readers will know that I've long been a fan of small MIDI controllers, grids in particular, so the Launchpad Mini was of particular interest to me. RGB pads – RGB pads give you a perfect reflection of your Ableton Live session, making it easier than ever to see your clips. Wherever you happen to be in the world, you can rely on a three-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault. This allows me to do just that without additional bells and whistles of more expensive models such as larger velocity sensitive pads.
