Customer Reviews

Potential is there...

Sadly, the whole point of syncing with launchpad app is a missed opportunity. Firstly, the record function of launch pad doesn't record launch key sounds. Secondly, there should be a shortcut button in both apps to swap between each other. Last of all, launchkey needs built-in record functions to make bpm matched loops for launch pad. More work still to be done before they're ready for prime time together.

No way out

Interesting gizmo, but come on chaps, there really should be a way to record sounds, and Audiobus support.
