The Sound of 3D - Self made Launchpad
Novation Launchpads are quite popular, but expensive. Due to the fact that we wanted to own one, a colleague and me crafted a self-made Launchpad.
The case is printed by a 3D printer to keep the Launchpad light.
Next to each button we soldered a cable. Each cable is connected to an Arduino Mega, who powers the circuit and waits on every connected port for an input.
If the Arduino registers an input, a midi-signal is sent to the Computer via the USB-cable. These MIDI-signals can control various Plugins on different DAWs, f.e. FL Studio.
Cool, I want to build my own too! But what do I need?
No problem, I got you covered! To build your own lauchnpad you need…
*use more components to get a bigger launchpad
**this should be considered as a joke
