It’s with very little exaggeration that we call Australian producer/performer M4SONIC (aka Nick Boundy) a Novation Launchpad master. If you’ve seen his ridiculously popular YouTube performance of “Virus,” you’ll know why—the dude is a madman when it comes to punching out beats and rhythms and triggering samples. Wanna learn how he does it? Well, you just might be the recipient of some one-on-one video-chat time with Boundy, as he’s just launched a remix contest with Novation for fans to remix “Virus” live.
