The Novation Launchpad Mini MK3 allows for the operation of the drum computer "Beatbox" in Music Maker, and is e.g. bundled by MAGIX in the context of the "Beatbox Edition" of Music Maker. After updating the Launchpad to firmware generation 2.x, which is currently provided by Novation, there are unfortunately certain malfunctions of the device in conjunction with Beatbox. These affect the gain mode of Beatbox, i.e. the volume control of the individual drum tracks within Beatbox. After the update, it is e.g. no longer possible to control the gain faders via the Launchpad, and the colors of the gain faders on the Launchpad are displayed incorrectly.
We therefore recommend to stick with firmware 1.x for the time being if you intend to use the Launchpad in conjunction with Music Maker and its Beatbox plug-in. At the same time, we are looking into the possibility of a solution on the end of Music Maker to establish compatibility with firmware 2.x.
