Cubase & Novation Launchpad Mini

I’m a newbie Cubase 12 user (new to DAWs in general, actually). I recently picked up LaunchPad Mini dirt cheap and am hoping to use it to facilitate inputting drum patterns. From what I’ve read, it should be possible to program the buttons on it as I see fit. Ideally, what I’d like to do is to load up Groove Agent (or EZ Drums, etc…) and use the Launchpad to “finger drum” in my beats. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I’ve come across some tutorials on YouTube, but I’m really looking for a “dummies” guide! lol

Hi and welcome to the forum,

I expect, your problem is, that the bottom-left pad on the hardware is not the bottom-left pad in Groove Agent SE. Right?

To do so, you can right-click to the pad > Trigger Note and Assign or learn the MIDI Note. Once oyu are done with the mapping, you can Save Hardware Controller Preset.
