Novation Launchpad update

Well Novation have updated Launchpad, but it seems a little strange to me. Here’s what’s in this version:

  • Sync MIDI-compatible apps and hardware to Launchpad (iPad only, In-App Purchase)
  • Support for AudioCopy Multi-Paste when importing audio files (iPad only)
  • Minor bugfixes

I would have thought that they might go for Link, but no, MIDI sync instead. Perhaps that’s because it is Ableton’s technology and not a Novation technology. I’m not sure.
