Beautiful tool for live sets
At first, I was a bit confused with Ableton at the start but as I got around the Daw and the controller, I was able to create some of my best products out of this tool by loop recording, engaging group tracks and mixing volume and effects straight from the controller. It's a fun starter investment and has definitely benefited me throughout my music years.
Really handy and intuitive studio and live controller.
The launchpad is a nice little feature in my studio, incredibly useful for producing with Ableton as it allows me to control many different aspects of the software from the pads themselves. I love the mixer section as it allows me to control every section of the mixer on the fly, which is also very handy when using it live. The user 1 page is automatically mapped to control the keys of your samplers and VSTs, so you can play it like an MPC or as a keyboard controller with your favourite Synths. Once again, incredibly handy in both live and studio situations. The launchpad can be slightly overlooked from time to time but is actually a fantastic little piece of kit, especially if you are travelling or on tour and want to keep your setup fully fledged in functionality, but streamlined in terms of baggage restrictions, overhead compartments or what have you. I definitely recommend this little gem, super affordable and super versatile, whilst also maintaining perfect portability. What more could you want for less than £100?
