LaunchPad Mini USB cable....?

Post by chapelier fou » Fri Oct 03, 2014 7:51 am

So they have this pretty weird USB cables... What a stupid idea to make this for a musical instrument... that makes replacement impossible if you're setting up on stage and you realize that you forgot the cable.
Any idea where i could find one of those for spare use ?
MacBook Pro 13" Retina i7 2.8 GHz OS 10.13, L10.0.1, M4L.
iMac 27" Retina i5 3,2 GHz OS 10.11.3 L10.0.1 M4L.

Did anyone have any luck buying a replacement cable? I just bought three from here but be warned none of them worked :( ... EBIDX%3AIT

I have another random one that came with my used Launchpad Mini but it's not right angled which is a bit lame.

Has anyone had any success with replacements with an angled micro end? And if so where did you buy them?

It's not exactly the most exotic cable out there - any micro USB cable will do. (I think Apple is the only company that uses proprietary cables for their phones and tablets; all other brands come with a micro USB cable nowadays. )
