I got the Launchpad Mini and as it was in the description I am authorized to download Ableton 10 Lite. The provided serial number by Novation is actually a link which is looks like a Serial number however as I typed in it is invalid so it is not possible to use even the lite version of Ableton. Also the device most features can not be used in the previous version (Ableton 9) for example Session mode changing which is a huge disadvantage. For me the item is useless for live looping. To set up this Launch Pad is very hard, the functions not explained well so it is definitely not for beginners. I watched many set up videos on YouTube and wasted a lot of my time when I finally figured it out that the main functions aren`t working in Ableton 9 and the Ableton 10 lite doesn`t even work without paying at least the basic version. Not for me. I am very disappointed.
Hatte mich echt darauf gefreut da ich bereits das mk1 mini davon bestitze. Allerdings ist die Unterstützung von FL-Studio quasi komplet weggefallen. Als Generic Controller macht das im FL-Studio so garnkeinen Spaß damit zu spielen. Und jetzt jede Taste einzeln zuzuweisen ist jetzt auch nicht besonders prikelnd. Wirklich Schade. Anosnten macht es ja einen robusten Eindruck.
I was hoping this would have a slightly smaller learning curve. I have owned a dozen keyboards (Kronos, M4, Rolands, Nord Stage, etc) and used to run ProTools and Steinburg Cubase... this one will take a similar effort to set-up and learn. I was hoping for a little more ease of use out of the box, so that I could start playing around with music clips, etc., without needing to learn computer programing, but unfortunately Ableton free or paid versions are still quite complicated and take quite a bit of effort to set-up and learn. I'm surprised, as I thought launch pads would revolutionize the market by allowing average people and DJ's to make music easily....but the best I could do after three hours is assign chords on a piano tone. The lights look pretty however, lol....
