Using Novation Launchpad Pro To Control Grooveboxes & MIDI Instruments

By hooking up your Launchpad Pro to a groovebox or other MIDI device you can get hands-on control in ways you may not have expected. Thavius Beck shows you how in this short video.  

Launchpad Pro is a great tool for controlling not only Ableton Live but also practically any MIDI-triggered hardware or software device you can think of. In this short video from the course Launchpad Pro 101: Produce And Perform, Launchpad expert Thavus Beck shows you how to use Launchpad to control a groovebox. In this case, Novation's Circuit. 

Thavius shows you how to use the MIDI fader mode on Launchpad to control synth sounds on Circuit by connecting the two boxes together. He also demonstrates how to control the groovebox's synth engine in real time from Launchpad. You'll see that it makes a great controller for your MIDI-triggered software and hardware. Be sure to check out the rest of the videos in the course for the complete guide to all of Launchpad Pro's features!
