    Novation Launch Control XL works with midi over USB. I created a custom template to launch all 16 pads and 8 sequences and use the faders for 8 pad volumes, and knobs for pitch and filter for each pad.

    Remember the Blackbox does support midi learning for some pad functions, but to launch sequences and pads one needs to program the launch control. Hope that helps.

    Steve,
    Shoot! The kit I bought required no soldering. I just basically snapped it all together. It is a very minimal setup that is quick for the music sketch and itch rather than busting out my own large keyboards.Though I want to mention that I would love to modify the code when time permits so that when I use modulation and pitch a row of leds scrolls by in columns or rows to the angle I tilt it towards, and the rows / columns get faster as I tilt it more. I would also like after I un-press a key that button changes to a different color and then color completely disappears after about 3 seconds. Then I want all the colors to be different every time I boot it up. Would love to figure that out somehow.

    Thanks... I printed my own enclosure and got as far as soldering LEDs but have not finished it. It seems like a pretty solid solution for controlling the Blackbox!

    Steve, I couldn't figure out how to reply to you directly so I placed this here. Yes I too bought the kit, with the main board, Acrylic Enclosure Kit, and two silicone pads. It was simple to put together, but I would suggest using washers at the top when you put the screws in so you don't scratch your table as for the rubber feet, that are included, are not tall enough to prevent the screws from scratching a surface from below. Also just hand tighten the screws to the nuts and just add a hint of elmers (white) glue to the screw so that the nut doesn't unscrew, just before you place each nut. I don't suggest using a tool as for you could crack the acrylic case. I don't recommend "loctite Blue" either as the screws and nuts seem plastic, and loctite is for metal and will crack plastic over time. The firmware I used is John Park's Trellis M4 Expressive Midi Controller. https://learn.adafruit.com/trellis-m...ilt-controller
    With a battery powered speaker (I Use a Bose one), the Blackbox, and the M4 talk about micro studio minimalism.
    Hope this all helps, best of luck,
    Satu Patel

    NakedBoards controllers work. I have the MC-24 and MC-8. Both work via USB and TRS MIDI with included adapter.

    Keith McMillen BopPad works via USB. You can do some interesting MIDI modulations with this pad.
    Keith McMillen SoftStep2 works via USB.
    Roli Seaboard Block and Lightpad M work via USB, but there are some issues when switching presets on the controllers.
    Alesis V25 via USB
