While good old fashioned quality is a big part of the appeal Novation have also stayed at the cutting edge of technology. The Launchpad (and it's little brother the Mini) are a cultural phemenon thanks to mind blowing performances from the likes of Madeon.

“We use the Jazzmutant Lemur to launch clips in Ableton Live but much prefer the hardware and feel of the SL MkII for flying in real time samples and filter manipulation. I have keys that turn on extreme effect settings in things like Live’s Beat Repeat next to keys for filters on/offs with the cut-off and resonance just above for quick access. You can’t beat the feel of the SL MkII for filter sweeps and effects manipulation. I love the modulation joystick which I use with the spring off for controlling the sample start on triggered vocal samples, and another one of the great things the SL has is a dedicated pair of up/down buttons for tempo.”
