The Launchpad Mini Music Controller from Novation is a USB midi controller for producing and performing music. This is a mini version of the famed Launchpad from Novartis, and works with the iPad, Mac and PC. The mini comes with 64 three-color launch pads. It helps you play all kinds of audio effects, loops and an array of simple sounds. Throw in a bit of musical talent, and you might just be able to produce something worth listening to. It doesn’t need to be separately hooked to the wall since it gets its power via USB from your computing device. You get the Launchpad Mini, a software suite, and a pre-loaded pro sound library. You can always import more sound effects, or create your own and add them to the Launchpad Mini.
