I am using the Novation Launchpad Mini but have no idea how to use is as a finger drum like an MPC.  Is it possible to use it as a finger drum?  I saw this tutorial video of Ableton and want to know if this () can be done using Renoise and the Launchpad.

Set the Launchpad to "User 1" mode, in which each square button transmits one MIDI note at a fixed velocity (100, if I remember correctly). Almost any sampler can play individual drum samples in response to MIDI notes.


In renoise you can arrange samples (assign them to MIDI notes ) in keyzones.


You can use novation launchpad mini as drumpads, but from what Ive heard they are not velocity sensitive.


Example below
