How is the Launchpad Mini's playing response and sensitivity for finger drumming?
Yes, KMI's stuff is inconsistent. I'm unable to program the QuNexus's controller layer from any computer, and the dev has no troubleshooting advice. And my QuNeo's rotating controllers have a nice fingerdrumming sensitivity that none of the 16 square pads has. You do have to bear down on the sliders more than you'd like to. Meanwhile, the QuNexus's sensitivity would make the older QuNeo much more usable. Apparently, they changed technology between the two devices. I asked precisely that question on the KMI forums after buying the QuNexus and before buying the QuNeo, but the answer they gave me was wrong. I think they don't comprehend how sensitive our fingers have become from playing ZenDrum triggers.
Sorry I missed this Jimmy, I'm not on the forums much any more.
I wouldn't recommend the Launchpad as a drum controller. The pads are reasonably sensitive to taps, but I don't believe they have any velocity capability. You'd basically have to tweak the velocity of every note in your DAW after recording. Not really ideal, but it all depends on your process.
