I bought this product and i got satisfied i use it on ableton live and its very versatile you have almost all the controls on you fingers, it came programmed from factory, but you can program the way you want, the pads are very useful to make live acts and activate tracks when your composing a song on song arrangement, the only think i liked less was the keys, they are very soft when you clicking it so you can't have so much precision on the velocity that you are playing. It has a very good programming, the faders are programmed to control volumes on tracks and with buttons to mute tracks , you can also program all that faders and buttons for other thing or you can click on hold button and deactivate it so you can free all you faders and buttons of programming. so you got more 16 controls you could use. It has a nice modulation and pitch wheel, and a has the track midi channel the permit you to change from track to track directly on keyboard, and the transport part is very good so you can put recording and stop directly from the midi controller.
I got my launchkey nearly a month ago, and have been using it alot. I have only tried it with Ableton Live 9 so i don't know how the InControl functions work in programs like Cubase or FL. But in Ableton it works great, the keys are semi-weighed and feels solid. The knobs are plastic but does not feel fragile.
The volume faders and the effect controls comes to great use in sessionview. And with the InControl function the buttons will automap to your currently marked track/effect or in some cases your VST intruments. Which is really useful!
I really like the display showing you the current value from the faders and Mod wheel. And the Midi channel/track buttons are brilliant.
I combined this with my Launchpad Mini and they work really smooth together. Just need to set up my tracks and VSTs and im good to go.
I've tried it with both Windows 7 & 8, no problems at all. I just had to download the drivers from the website to get it up and running.
I really recommend this product for all Ableton users.
