It might not look like what you imagine a piano to look like, but it can be played like one. In the diagram below, you’ll see that the pads are lit in a certain way which refers to the different notes on a traditional keyboard layout.
Pink pads refer to each “C” note, while blue pads are the white keys, and unlit pads are used for the black keys for hitting sharps and flats.
You can use Melodics to learn how to play melodies, chords and basslines on your Launchpad. When playing Melodics lessons, the pads will light up white to show you which notes to play, and will react based on your timing. Green for perfect, orange for early, purple for late and red for missed notes.
