A new piece of gear has been added to the studio. It’s a Novation Launchpad Mini. It’s usually employed to control electronics associated with music.
In my studio, the Launchpad is a shotbox. Each button can control a function or functions on the TriCaster. If properly programmed a shotbox will allow me to broadcast a more complex and spontaneous segment live, by myself. At least that’s my intent.
Even if it doesn’t live up to expectations, it’s still a box with 80 programmable color push button light switches. That alone should be enough.
