Emeli Sandé... do we really need to introduce the multiple award-winning, hit record-writing singer, who has performed everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall to the 2012 Olympics?
In this interview, Emeli explains how her Focusrite Forte is her go-to interface for recording on the road, due to its amazing sound-quality and ease of use.
However, it's not just for recording where Emeli relies on Focusrite Novation products. The Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 and Scarlett 18i20 interfaces are key to her live rig, and there's also a Novation Zero SL MkII MIDI controller used to control the laptops.

Novation's hugely popular FREE Launchpad iPad App has now been updated, with a number of bug fixes and a brand new Audio Import function! This is something that users have been asking for since the release of the Launchpad App and it now means that you aren't limited by the sounds that come with it. If you've got some of your own WAV or AIFF samples and loops then you can now import them into the App using Dropbox (free Dropbox account required), assign them to pads of your choice and then trigger them with the App. The Launchpad App also features time-stretching so that all your loops will stay in perfect time with each other.
