Novation Launchpad Mini MK2
Novation's new and improved Launchpad Mini MK2 is a compact USB grid controller that has been designed for use with Ableton Live. Features include 64 multi-coloured backlit pads, 16 additional function buttons and a bundle of software for both PCs and Macs, including Ableton Live Lite.
The Launchpad Mini MK2 is Novation's most affordable Launchpad grid instrument. This updated version gives you all of the functionality or the original Launchpad controller condensed into a much smaller, compact unit, making it highly portable and perfect for smaller scale setups.
Launchpad Mini displays your Ableton Live session view on 64 mini pads, which allow you to trigger clips, play drum racks, control your mixer, FX and makes high quality performance videos for YouTube. All the pads are backlit with multi-coloured LEDs that show you which clips are loaded, playing and recording. Separate buttons around the outside of the grid are designed to trigger scenes, switch modes and navigate your session in Ableton Live.
Launchpad Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can take it anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won't need any drivers or power cables, because it's class compliant and bus-powered via USB. You can also connect it to your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit to control all sorts of iOS music apps, like Novation's free Launchpad App.
You can combine Launchpad Mini with any other Launch products, like Launch Control and Launchkey Mini, to create a compact and hands-on studio setup. It is designed for Ableton Live, but integrates immediately with FL Studio as well. It also comes with everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station virtual instruments, and over 4GB of samples from Loopmasters.
