The Isotonik Studios team has recently started collaborating with Daniel of LDM Design, and the results of their first venture are now available as the LP Pack.
Designed to get even more fun out of the Novation LaunchPad MKI, MKII and MINI the LP Pack is a set of three MaxforLive Sequencers that give hands on creation to this versatile controller.
Orbit is a circular step sequencer created for live performance. It was designed to overcome the limitations of an 8×8 grid to create a sequence of 16 steps. It includes live performance tools such as beat-repeat and effect triggers. There are a lot of hidden features without involving a complex menu system.
Paragome is a dynamic pattern instrument which creates automated arpeggios and melodies. It’s based on the classic Polygome app, made by Stretta for the monome. The 64-pad matrix is mapped to a selected scale, ranging in pitch from bottom to top. Holding a pad will trigger a selected sequence from that root note. I have expanded the device from the design of the original to increase the functionality and allow for multiple different patterns to play at once.
S7epper_mk2 is based on part of the 7up device for the original grid controller, the monome, with expanded features for the Launchpad. The device lets you sequence 7 midi notes across the grid, and allows 8 pages of patterns, which can also be sequenced. Nearly all of the options and functions can be accessed directly from the device itself without any need for mouse clicking. It also has presets which mean that many patterns can be saved and loaded to the device within the same Live set.
The LP Pack is available for €24.40 here.
