Ther buzz surrounding the new Launchpad controller tablet has been deafening at times. The tight integration with Ableton Live  - it was developed in conjunction with the Ableton guys n gals after all, is sweet.

We've published the nuts n bolts of the unit already, but we were able to get some hands on action with Olly Burke.

I must say for a £150/$249 product, it's surprisingly well contstructed, with a solid feel and good, positive button action. One thing I didn't know before this demo, was that pads are NOT velocity sensitive, but there are ways around it.

As well as the integration with Live, the Launchpad also comes equipped with AutoMap which allows MIDI and Key command integration with supported plug-ins.

Shipping now, the Launchpad is in short supply, demand has surpassed expectation, but there are more shipments on the way.
