The Launchpad Pro is a staple in any serious producers arsenal. With this handy dandy Abelton controller, hot rhythms can be constructed, molar-shaking drops can be built, and ideas can flourish into pulse-pounding, feet-moving jams. But have you found that your samples have been severely lacking in the dope department? Have your drops been less than filthy? Are your tracks far from lit, fam? Worry not: the professionals at Novation are here to get your Launchpad game back on track.
Ah, 2016. Like a wayward puck at a hockey game, you caught us totally unaware and left us feeling battered, bruised, and more than a little violated. While 2016 might have been the year we collectively decided that mourning a gorilla was the height of comedy, it wasn’t all bad. Case in point: The music! The radical, game changing, awe inspiring, joy inducing music. And what is a year of music without a smarmy look back at the year that was, formatted for your reading pleasure in an easy to understand top 10 list? I’m Evan with Unique Squared! Join me as I make totally unqualified judgements against a year of albums and use a lifetime of musical snobbery to compile my top 5 albums of 2016.
