Looks like a Novation LaunchPad - but a lot lower cost!

PostFri Jun 16, 2023 4:04 am

For those that use Novation LaunchPads for their stop jambs, here is something that looks the same but cheaper.
I don't know, however, whether it would work as per the LaunchPad, but it could be worth a try.
Here it is:

However, it is not as good as this:

Hello Ken,

[Topic moved here.]

I have no experience with that product, but its lamps would only be controllable from Hauptwerk if its driver specifically masquerades (including the device names it presents) as one of the Novation Launchpad models that Hauptwerk supports.
Best regards, Martin.

Interesting. This controller looks identical to one made by WORLDE that I saw at the NAMM show in April. Check out my notes at

http://www.nightbloomingjazzmen.com/NAMM_2023.html

This was a Chinese product. I asked one of the sales people at the booth about it. It is supposedly identical in interface and programming to the Launchpad. I specifically asked if they had added any new features that might distinguish it from the other product - and he said "no."

It is often the case that such Chinese products are released to the West under multiple product names - so I am guessing this is case here.
