    Default APC20 vs. Launchpad

    Before i start this topic, ive read these were both designer for ableton but can they both be used in traktor?

    Anyway, which would be a better buy, im only looking for something to launch cue's, loop rolls + track skips. the novation dicer was first looked at but its not got enough options to fit my needs.

    Can you set the light colours on either? or is it automatic

    Based on your specific needs, I'd say get the LP; the APC might be overkill for what you want to do.

    Another big question to ask yourself is - how important are regular faders? Would you be able to get by with the LP's "virtual"/columns of buttons faders? If you don't mind those columns, the LP might be a better choice; it has a smaller footprint and plenty of customization potential - for example, it's super-easy to set up the LP with Ableton drum racks.

    Not about overkill here imo, the LP has far more buttons which gives you good control over for example 4 decks. I think the LP has bigger buttons as well but i might be wrong
    I used to link music in my signature but nowadays I don't.
