Whether you're a launchpad noob or just looking to perfect your launchpad playing skills, you've come to the right place.

It doesn't matter if it's something as simple as setting up your launchpad or something difficult like complex midi programming; there will always be someone to help you.

Getting started with the Launchpad
If you're joining the forum, I'm assuming that you know the basics of setting up your launchpad with Ableton. If you do, then skip to the next paragraph. If not, then go here. It will teach you how to use and set up the launchpad using very basic, short, and informative tutorials.
The Launchpad Forum is full of project files. You can find all of them in the Finished Projects section. The best project files will be stickied, so make sure to check them out. If you don't want to look through all of the topics and want a complete list of project files, go here.
Now that you have a general idea of what to expect...
Start by introducing yourself. Let people know your launchpad background and stuff that you need help with/ want to help people with. Also be sure to upload a custom avatar (60 by 60 pixels) and make a custom signature. Be sure to check out all of the topics and get to know other launchpadders and producers!
I hope you have fun and enjoy the launchpad forums!
