Learning a musical instrument can be a bit of a drag. Especially if like me you statred out on a recorder playing Three Blind Mice before moving onto a piano. For me the piano was even more of a drag trying to remember all the notes and keys, as well as trying to learn to read music.

Well there is a new generation of music and with it a new generation of musical instruments. One of these instruments is known as a Launchpad by M4Sonic. Essential this is a block of keys which can all be programmed with custom sounds. You may program one of the buttons to make a drum noise while another button could play a quick melody. The idea is that you can use the device to add samples to tracks.

In the case of this guy who is actually featured on the M4Sonic Youtube page, he uses the device in a way that really needs to be heard to believe.

I hope you enjoy.
