As you may know, we’ve been busy Hacking the Launchpad Pro. Today we’re pleased to announce the official release of our LaunchCraft plugin for the LaunchPad.
The LaunchCraft plugin extends the native functionality of the Novation Launchpad MK2 and Launchpad Pro. When using the Launchpad in Notes mode, instead of being locked into a single note layout, this plugin allows you to choose from a variety of scales and modes, trigger samples from pads similar to a drum machine, and synthesize sounds using any synth or other VST/AU instrument. Check out our lead developer Aaron showing off the new Notes mode with a classical guitar piece played on the LaunchPad Pro.
The plugin also allows for one-button record/loop/delete in sample grid mode and improved polyphony (playing the same note simultaneously). Check out the LaunchCraft Plugin product page for more details and a free 30-day trial.
Also, much thanks to our 46 beta testers! Without your feedback and bug reports, we wouldn’t have been able to create this plugin as fast as we did or been in as in-touch with what features users really wanted.
