Help me!! Need a way to use a launchpad/mf as a soundboard

Post by cBtwitch » Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:55 am

I have a launchpad mk2, midi fighter 3d, and a midi fighter 64 and I was looking for a way to use them as a soundboard for my stream on twitch. Basically, have a sound mapped to each button and having the sound play on-stream audio when i press it. Any ideas on how I could do this? 8O

you didn't mention if you are on Windows or Mac OS X, but there are a few sound cart options out there:

there are a couple of others that i have left out, as they don't seem to be in active development...

You can use Live's Session View for that.

Disable "Loop" on the Audio Clips you want playing just one time.

Or you can use Drum Racks:

Or you can use Sampler (if you have Suite or Sampler), it can also be used to assign a sample to each key.
