Jack Conte has gone viral yet again with the help of the Novation Launchpad, his Daft Punk Skrillex Remix has had almost 1.5 million views in just over a week. Using the Launchpad makes it not only sound stunning, it looks incredible too. Take a look for yourself.

The majority of Conte's original clips are designed using Ableton Live, Launchpad's buttons can be used to sketch out beats with drum tracks and can be assigned to other functions in Live using the 'Learn' function.

After a huge response at Musikmesse, the Novation Launchpad S is finally shipping on April 16th.

With brighter LEDs and total portability, the Launchpad S works with even more software, including Novation's Free Launchpad iPad app, letting you trigger loops and remix on-the-fly.

The Launchpad App is a free self-contained music making and performance experience, the perfect introduction to the world of Launchpad.

Watch the video below for a step-by-step tutorial about how Ableton Live and the Launchpad S were used on KillTheRobot's track 'RoboSonic'.
