Step sequencing using four Novation Launchpads

Laucflicht 3 plug-in adds extra functionality for MIDI pad controller

Back in 2011 we told you about Lauflicht, a plug-in for the Renoise DAW that enables you to use your Novation Launchpad as a step sequencer.

The third version of Lauflicht ups the ante somewhat, enabling you to use up to four Launchpads together and load/mix patterns in real-time.

Find out more in the video above. Lauflicht 3 costs €24 and is available now.
