I loved too much


It's great and good to beginning



I like this thing, saves me some clicks


Good for Ableton, I am happy to be freed from the mouse and keyboard for some functions, I am still learning my way around this thing, but so far it is nice to have. The pads are fun to play the drums with.



Best Launchpad Yet


This is a much improved version of the previous models. The integrated note modes and customizable layouts allow this to be useful with other DAWs besides Ableton. Plus now has velocity and aftertouch. It's a winner.



I would recommend this product


We are learning how to use this product and enjoying the free classes from sam ash



Great Buy


Very easy to use and cheaper entry level alternative to the Abelton Push 2. Although there are less features than the push it's a great one to start off with without the major expense.
