Launch Buttons is a MIDI controller that lets you perform your tracks wherever you go. You don't need to carry your expensive gear; your phone/tablet is just about enough. Works with virtually any DAW after a very simple set up. Ableton + Launchpad 95 script is recommended.

This free version gives you access to all 64 buttons on the 8x8 grid, 8 scene launch buttons, 8 buttons to navigate and 7 buttons for transport controls. The Launchpad95 script gives you a step sequencer, scale mode, and many more functions.

The Apple Watch extension lets you access about one fifth of the Buttons. This means that you can use the app to control a 3x3 clip launchers, 3 scene launchers, and 4 arrow keys to navigate through your clips. It also can display some of the buttons used for step sequencing, good enough for a little stunt in a live set I'd say.

It includes the the "old" colors (red-orange-yellow-green) - if you want to upgrade, Launch Buttons Plus provides you with
- full color support (RGB)
- 16 more functions buttons (in addition to the 16 you already have)
- 16 freely assignable knobs

Have fun :)

Chicken Jeff taco ,

I press the screen a light shows up on launchpad

There's no noise but when I press the screen there's a light that show up on my launchpad but when I press a button on my launchpad nothing happens and plus no noise so don't get it and don't get the full version

Finicky but works.

The latency and tendency to disconnect put me off a bit. it would be cool to see the colors mimic ableton. The watch app does not reflect what is on the phone properly so it’s hard to see where I am without actually looking at the track box in ableton. I was trying to find a way to connect without internet, router, or the upgraded bluetooth version and I figured something out on mac. Just create a network with the mac and turn on internet sharing in system preferences. after that connect the phone to the computer by bluetooth and then your phone should show up in audio midi network setup even when not connected to internet.

Ps, I could not get launchpad95 to work with it. I might try again later but i’m just using regular launchpad scripts

I went through the steps and checked it again to make sure and still don’t have response with ableton. Idk what I did wrong or if something needed to be fixed.
