It's ok when it works
Shinyuu Wolfy 22.08.2021
Update: I've now updated the quality rating as my first Launchpad had an issues with pads self-triggering after a month of use and my replacement has noticeable pads discoloration. It's still a great and compact device, when it works.

It's the largest of the launchpads, even though it's still smaller than e.g. Ableton Push. The pads are nicely responsive and the pressure curve immediately makes sense.

It seems like a 8x8 grid at first, but as you work more with it you start to appreciate the layout and the features. I got to the point where I haven't touched my keyboard at all because I could program both drums and synths on pads alone.

Novation seems to prioritize the Ableton Live crowd and as such the controller has lots of great features specifically tailored for Live. Nevertheless, it's a joy to hook it up to an iPad (and avail of the built-in 4-channel sequencer). It also works really good with Bitwig.

Great controller!
tretjakoffff 20.11.2021
I bought it as a universal controller. It integrates perfectly with Ableton Live, but requires constant reference to the manual. I also plan to use it as a sequencer for hardware synths.
It is made of high quality, the surface does not get dirty.
I recommend it!

Remarkable gadget
Cable-snipper 24.04.2021
This really is a remarkable gadget.
I bought it as a controller for Ableton Live, which it does very well.
I have now 'programmed' two of the eight Custom Modes: one to control my tcElectronics Plethora X5; the other to control my copy of the Transcribe! software.
The 'programming' of the Custom Modes is via Novation Components software and is simple and intuitive.
And I have yet to play with the Synthesiser mode.
The touch-sensitive pads are a joy to use, and who can resist coloured lights?
