Is this true – is novation launchpad a musicians best friend? Well it seems it can be a musicians friend from the reviews I am seeing from the net. Many people are recommending this if you are in the market for a controller. This is a 64 button ‘music controller’ which comes along with ‘Ableton’ music-making software. Further Novation has video tutorials so that you can get along with the more advanced features offered by it. Moreover I like the price – its affordable by todays standards.
