Watch hugely talented keys player Gentry and Novation technology evangelist Enrique Martinez jam together using a single laptop rig, alongside a Novation Launchpad Pro, Novation Launchkey 49 and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface.
Both controllers connect to the same laptop via USB to give the two performers full control of the same Ableton Live session. Clips can be triggered by either controller, and each artist can select tracks to quickly reach for virtual instruments, tweak software effects, and make changes to volume, pan and send controls. Enrique Martinez uses the Launchpad Pro to program beats, arm clips to capture live loops and control the mix, while Gentry focusses on playing keyboards and the bassline. The live mic, used here by Gentry for percussion, can be armed and recorded using the Launchpad Pro.
