A few weeks ago I stumbled across a cool script that turned the Novation Launchpad into an Ableton Push emulator. I studied the download page for it real hard in hopes of finding out more about it. And I did! Apparently the script has been around since 2011 and constantly improved and updated since then.
The only issue I had was that it’s creator, Henri David, was just a shadow figure in my mind. However, thanks to the power of social media we managed to get in touch and Henri was kind enough to answer some questions that were burning in my mind.
Below, you’ll find a chopped up video of me playing around with and walking through Launchpad95. Below that video of me playing around with and walking through Launchpad95 you’ll find an interview with the man himself – Henri David.

Finally! I managed to put together the third Controllerism.com podcast. This one’s a bit of a departure from the exclusively electronic music thing, mostly because I really thought the tracks fit together in an interesting way.
