Hi Raz,

You have to find the best way to communicate with your launchpad.
you can use midi notes or use the control surface object of live API.
once you know how to use the launchpad with max it won’t be very difficult to interface it with some of the sequencers available in max or max for live.
I suggest you have a look at the excellent M. Chenetz’s web site:

AFAIK he will release a tutorial for the launchpad very soon.

I just completed the first part in a multi-part In Control (Launchpad Edition) Series. This edition covers the selectin of control surfaces and the observation of buttons through the Live API.
