    I was thinking of starting this thread too

    Looks interesting. I've been wanting to enter the world of clip launching for quite some time, though computer maintenance has slightly delayed me. I've signed up for the beta already.

    I can't help but feel that it'll be incredibly affordable. Kind of like how PreSonus' DAW is $300 compared to other more established DAWs.

    I've read somewhere that the creators are ex Ableton employees...

    Wonder if they'll run into legal problems

    well Studio one was old Cubase programmers, and it shows, so I doubt they'll run into legal...if they follow something like Reapers model then this could be something amazing, but if its the $300 -$500 rnge....well Live 9 is around the corner

    I agree. Anything above 300 and I'll just get Ableton

    ...bitwig took too long.
    I've started using ableton. Lite came with my q49..
    And wow does this thing make a great sketchpad!
    Thanks for the guidance kc

    Now let's see if bitwig will come along before I'm ready or needing to upgrade to full ableton

    Man that iPad thing looks intense! Nice to see something that doesn't look cheesy like so many tablet apps developed nowdays.
    I think it's only a matter of time until I get into an Apple product.

    I actually never got around to getting an APC. Ableton just showed up with a keyboard I got for Komplete. I wasn't expecting it, but man am I glad it came in. Really flexible. And the MIDI mapping is incredibly easy.
    I've actually got a launchpad on the way as well. Found a crazy deal here in the "For Sale" that I just couldn't pass up a few nights ago.

    I've still got some digging around to do in Ableton, so I'm sure sooner rather than later I'll have a list of some (probably simple) questions for you .

    ahh cool


    after you mentioning the APC you got me looking about but the launchpad seems far more usable.....around half my tracks start up as a few bits and pieces in the scene view, I think this is going to revolutionize how I do things, should be great


    the ipad has quite a few nifty tricks, but I didnt just buy it for the "studio" so its worth the cash...otherwise I dont think Id bother, the apps are cool but I have the same on my iphone with a synthstation to play them..


    lemme know how you get on with Live...I think the launchpad editions prolly not much better than your freebie but it does give you a substantial discount when upgrading to the full Live as the treat it as a Live Lite

    Yeah the launchpad just seems like a better option. bus power and light weight are always wonderful.
    there seems to be an unusual delay on getting mine from the guy, so but whatever. Im having enough fun with ableton on its own.

    looks like I can upgrade from lite to full live for $329 if I get the download version. do you think I'll be ableto install it on different systems with the download only version?

    also, I've got a few of my first questions for you :

    -How do I stop it from looping when I record something into a clip and play it back?

    -I don't know where to find the midi note names for the drum racks so I can assign sounds to whatever hardware im using. Is that what the editing of drum racks is? (I can't do it since it isnt available in the lite edition.) Does it make to where you can MIDI learn the sounds to pads or whatever as you choose or is it a sound editing thing

    Ive been having fun with the launchpad this week...looks like its going to be a fun tool along with the ipad

    you can install Live onto two machines per license regardless of whether its boxed or downloaded

    to stop it looping double click on the clip and you'll see an information box in the left hand bottom corner where you can transpose the clip or change its gain...on the right hand side of the box there will be a yellow button with loop...just press it

    to assign midi just click the midi map button in the top right (in between "key" and CPU %), press on the drum pad you want to control in the drum rack, then the controllers pad and it will map automatically...when youve finished mapping the pads just press the midi button again
