Novation Launchpad running Nonome and MLR – Amen

November 3rd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Novation Launchpad Ableton controller was released the other day, and I decided to pick one up.  I got the chance to play with it at work before I bought one, and it is a good controller with small desk footprint.  It connected to Ableton Live 8.0.8 with no issues at all.  This controller is great for live performance with Ableton Live, while the Akai APC40, another similar Ableton Live controller, is better suited in the studio.  Triggering clips is easy and fun with the Lauchpad, but I don’t like having to go to the mixer screen everytime i need to stop a track.  The volume control is not the best either, the button control causes the volume to move in steps instead of a linear motion.  The best part of this controller is the ability to program it in different ways.  With the right emulation program the Launchpad is able to emulate the monome.  Piclae created a version of nonome for the novation launchpad.

Read his post

Piclae provides the Max5 code for his copy of nonome and a monome program call mlr also written in Max5. I took the two separate codes and brought them together in one code, and built it as an .exe program for Windows. Here is a video of me running the mlr software on the Launchpad.

Here is the Window’s .exe build I made of nonome and mlr built together.I can make an OSX version if anyone wants it just let me know in the comments.
