  1. $2.99 is a good price, getting tired of these $19.99 apps that end up not doing what you need them to.

  2. If this is real I’ll buy the hell out of it for $2.99. The fact that it has the exact same song as the promo for the novation launchpad has me worried about the credibility of this video though. Anyone could whip up this animation. Show me the app actually running on an ipad and I’ll start to get excited.

    1. If you watch the Launchpad S promo video and this one, even the button presses are exactly the same.

  3. This is cool but the LaunchPad app is also pretty cool – it’s like a mini version of Ableton Live.

  4. Hey guys, I don’t know what happened to the videos and this product, but I did a similar thing, for both iOS AND ANDROID, only $2.49
