  1. if the mini had velocity it would be so perfect, it could be used for so many things and is a great size, oh well maybe on a mini mk4.

  2. Would you rather have them call it Launchpad 95? 😉

    I think this is a pretty significant update. With the Custom Keystroke widget, you can now use the Launchpad as control tool for any software, which can be controlled by keyboard shortcuts, without having to use any translation software, independent of the OS you use.

  3. This is a great development. The biggest reason I stuck with AutoMap as long as I did was the ability to assign key commands. I hope they can bring this functionality to the SL3 line, even though I returned mine because the Logic implementation sucks big time, this will be good for people who do get along with the SL3.

  4. My guess is that these two models were not selling as the company targeted so.. and then there is Circuit Pro which Novation simply refuses to make one. Instead we are faced with an unnecessary choice of Rhythm or Tracks. I wonder how are these two devices selling also..
