So far so good. 50% off rrp was a great deal. Worked straight out of the box. A bit more documentation would be nice as there are a lot of features. But there are tutorial vids. Also the mini usb feels like it wont take much to break. Thumbs up from me

Nice, diverse tool
Andres Cantu Rodriguez
it´s good and all, but I really prefer the MK3, the pads on the mk2 are pretty hard
William Sheppard
Works like new for a significantly lower price.
The gear, buttons, bundle software, everything is neat. Going to take some time to get used to though.

The touch is very good. It's an unfamiliar instrument to me, but if i keep it, it'll be worth it.

I bought a refurbished Launchpad Mini MK2 just a couple days ago straight from the Novation website. Delivery all the way to my hometown (Bogota, South America) was surprisingly fast and to be honest. Aesthetically, I found no flaws, scratches or dents in the product even though it was a B-Class one. All lights are functioning and all buttons work properly. The package came with a brand new cable, its proper stickers, users guide; no Ableton Live Lite registering card, however (I had to contact Ableton for my license, which went pretty smoothly). It works straight out of the box! While most of its features are quite intuitive, some others aren't, such as how to program a light show on the grid panel, yet after a couple of hours watching some tutorials online and also fooling around I was able to enjoy it thoroughly. Even though it is an entertaining piece of equipment and it works just like its bigger brothers (launching scenes is a breeze), this mini version might have a caveat: because of the nature of its small buttons, it gets complicated to trigger a sample properly and at often times it gets hard to trigger a sound when being pushed (either the sample is triggered multiple times or doesn't sound at all). It can be worked around by applying more pressure around the corners instead of the center, although it takes lots of practice and might not be as accurate as opposed to the bigger buttons of other Novation products. As for the value, it's a complicated subject since the currency from my country is currently experiencing a sensitive inflation which makes most of the imported products more expensive than they are. For a fellow Latin American might not be the cheapest product, but it is still affordable and a great option to start out. In spite of some technical features that could be improved in the future, the Launchpad Mini MK2 is an affordable, compact version that works properly for both aspiring artists and performers who need an alternative instrument that provides the ultimate portability.

Works pretty well.
Requires a bit of learning and the buttons are not as sensitive as I would've liked. Still a good purchase for the price as it allows you to experiment with your music in a new way.

Love this Launchpad Mini!
Ableton mapping works like a breeze.
Juan David Herrera
Great product, simple, cheap and so usefull with other launch products
Nikolaus Harryson
Its a great device for launching loops and backtracks when you play by yourself. But as a triggerpad for midi instruments its not optimal. The feel of the pads are great but it requires some pressure to trigger, also it sometimes double clicks when i pushed the pad on the edges. I think this is a great live controller but not an optimal creation device.
Paulo Podence
Very nice recomended :D .
The Launchpad mini is portable and intuitive to help creating new patterns and shortcuts. Cheers Matthew James Edge
Simple, intuitive design, no problems with it at all

Michael Twomey
Really good for the price, great way to dip your toes into the waters.
I start my journey with novation launchpad mini which Is ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🎹🎹🎹🎹🎶🎶🎶
Love the product. It took some time to understand how it works and the opportunities what is possible to do, but it was worth it. Thanks.
Excellent product and good price for a beginner musician
I'm still learning how to use it, but the buttons aren't quite as responsive as I'd hoped. Tutorials are great though and can't wait to start using it properly - will update my review if my experience changes.
I bought the pad "fast" even though I'm someone who has to look for reviews, comparison, advices on the product... I was waiting for more colors as I'm using Ableton 9 Live Lite given with the product. But I'm very satisfied by the Launchpad and have a good time with it.

I've been playing guitar and drums for a couple of years and decided to get into more electronic driven music. As a begginer I have to say that I'm having a lot of fun using the Launchpad Mini with Ableton Live, it's simple and really intuitive!
wesley perry lees
The buttons can be slightly clunky . I have to push some harder than others , might be because it's new .. the code in the box for Ableton live 9 lite said that it had already been registered. Contacted customer service it was sorted within an hour. So all in all I'm happy and hopefully in a while move on to the pro
Alexis Villegas

Stefan Onishchuk
Purchased for use with iPad air ,pro and , MAc for Ableton Live, Item worked as expected. , iOS apps a pleasant surprise ,online resources and support very good! Great size for notebook and tablet use,
Jun Li
It was a small Launchpad but it was a the exact size as my hand! It was easy to use and I made a small song out of it and it was one of the best things i’ve gotten as a gift. I like the colors of the launchpad which are green, orange, red and white. I wish to get a Launchpad Pro next time I get another launchpad! -Nathan

My 14 year old kid was able to unbox and start using in a few hours and is really enjoying it. Great product and easy instructions.

Ordered for my son. He is enjoying the mini launch pad thanks
craig mcnamara
After using for a few days in really enjoy the work flow. I wanted something to slip inside a laptop case and it does just that. From the studio is could see the problem being highly usefull. I would be interested to know if it is velocity sensitive as the mini misses this. For the price point no complaints and for what I want it does the job. As a main controller I would like the touch sensitivity for more expressiveness plus the expanded features for improved work flow withing ableton!
Kathryn David

Nice product!!!!! Love it very much
Mr Sergej M
Nice and compact but needed some config in ableton and you need an adapter to make it work with the iPad.
The Launchpad Mini is perfect for creating unique beats for performing live. It's intuitive, easy to customise and breeds creativity.

It is a great product with a low price. The only thing I didn't like was the disabilities of abelton lite but that's ok since it was a free download.
