I love this
by KeriaArtJourney on 2021/12/05 17:35
I just started dabbling into music earlier this year and Launch pad has been a very easy tool for me to mix beats and upload my own beats and vocals to others produced works.

Launchcontrol XL no longer functions
by helloSIRjeremy on 2021/12/05 04:25
The combination of using a launchpad x and a launchcontrol xl made this app awesome. Now, the launchcontrol crashes the app whenever it is plugged in. I have not found a fix, and I do hope this gets resolved.
Awesome!
by Eyshbdb on 2021/12/04 22:08
This app has allowed me to continue down my EDM and DJ-ing path. There only is a few issues, with there being only a few good trap-py type of music on the app. I’m a dubstep dj and I like to add beats to my songs, but there is only drums. Any other way it’s awesome!
Music DJ
by Charli Hewitt on 2021/12/04 04:54
This game is so fun. I feel like a real DJ. I love how there is different beets and other hints like volumes and you can even record your amazing beets that you made. I gave it a four star because I love game and it is so much. It also does not take so much data and it will not lag and I have over 45 apps and again it does not lag at all. Anyways thank you for reading my review
Best coping mechanism during COVID 2020 for me
by Snipergirl1 on 2021/12/04 03:51
I love this software. It really got me through my stress and depression with everything happening with Covid. It’s so satisfying to create my own music. I’ve made over 50 songs!
Honest review
by just e one on 2021/12/04 02:45
For a phone app this program is pretty solid. You can make produce rich beats that you can build on with a more sophisticated computer based production program. I have been using this app for years and it’s been very consistent in quality.
I love this game
by archer of scullzz on 2021/12/04 00:17
This game is the best because it pretends that you’re a DJ
Money -_-
by toga love girl on 2021/12/03 01:15
Why does basically everything cost money??? Wanna buy a new song? You need to pay for it!
Love this :)

This app is incredibly user friendly, I’ll use it everywhere, while getting my nails done, while working, it makes my day! I absolutely love it!
Yezzah!
by Darkly Road on 2021/12/02 04:00
I’ve used this app for years and I have to say that it has been a total and complete honor to have access to all of the wonderful samples that so many have created in order for so many to utilize to re arrange etc into something enjoyable. I truly believe that this application has helped me out and through some very trying times, thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart :)

A pc template
by oNimEnAngRy on 2021/11/20 01:27
It would make this already great app perfect. A template of sorts that could be loaded with my own samples and then the whole thing imported to a playable pad. Exportable stems would also put launchpad back on the top of the pile
AMAZING
by user12335687 on 2021/11/19 00:47
This app should receive a 5 star I love this app so much you can literally make an album their is so much to choose from.If your into making music and DJ this is the go to app the app is amazing I’m grateful for who made it!

by Xex@N!? on 2021/11/06 15:17
Listen, this is a really great app.I’ve actually created some really good soundtracks and songs with these and they always turn out amazing thanks to the Launchpad. I really hope you at least more songs everything sounds wonderful and I can’t get enough, keep doing great, this is amazing!
Just another great one from Novation
by surferobx on 2021/11/04 15:43
I can see that it’s going to be easy to use and also the feature to be able to load loops and apply fax is amazing. I didn’t think I would be able to find something like this quickly and free. Not sure if this will sync with Launchpad keyboard but I’m going to give this a shot at some point.I’m already loving this app. Mister Lo Figh

I have a suggestion
by oldhouseonthehill on 2021/10/25 01:11
When I first got this app, there was WAY more packs in the musical artist-made packs section. There was one musical artist-made pack I really liked that called something like "chainsaw" that was removed in an update, so can you get the other devs to bring the removed packs back?
Simply great
by Turneric on 2021/10/23 15:02
Fantastic app for those that enjoy and love music. Wether a boba Fide music maker, remixer, pro or amateur. This app will have you hooked! Beautifully designed and smartly put together. The whole suit of apps and functionalities from this developer is outstanding and so far unmatched for the price. I hope it never goes away and it never ceases to offer a free version - that was my gateway to getting hooked! Awesome way to discover new musicIan’s and creators as as well.

Free to play
by HOLLOW DAB CAT on 2021/10/18 23:05
I think it should be more free to play I only have the free Mix of sounds and sometimes want to use a different Mix of sounds. From the YouTuber and TikToker Earthbound Kid
Great App!
by happyyasu09 on 2021/10/16 12:33
I like the app, it comes with calming color palette, easy to use mechanics of creating music with loops and other custom sounds. The tech support is great! I had a question and it was resolved super fast. This is a great app to create or play live music. <3

Tempo Is Weird
by Gixsa on 2021/10/10 17:21
When I import things that all have the same tempo in a blank sound pack it ends up getting played in slow motion. This is a problem, it might have even messed up the tempo. pls fix.
Best app ever!

App randomly loses sound
by Jynoa13624811451489 on 2021/09/29 19:37
I love this app, but when I’m creating songs the sound will randomly stop. Sometimes when I close the app and reload I still cant hear anything. The buttons will press and the animations will work, but the sound just will not play.
Launched Me Into My Music Career
by Ms. B77 on 2021/09/29 13:29
Forever grateful for this app, because of it I have an album up and will be producing more. I don’t want to steal all the credit though and always give thanks to the apps for helping me. It’s beyond amazing and I’m so happy something like this exists. I do have a question though. I did mention I have an album up. Is it ok to do that using these sounds? If not, let me know! Anyway this is my secret weapon in so much of my work.
Fantastic musical experience
by jimmburrell on 2021/09/28 18:44

This subscription took all the fun out
by Imcsmithers on 2021/09/25 21:38
So unfortunate to see creative tools being less accessible to kids, teachers, beginners and so much more. This app was my favorite thing for years. To come back to it just to have some fun with one of the greatest music apps and see a fee. It’s just kinda lame. I’m not mad just disappointed.
This is awesome must get
by usability handling on 2021/09/22 21:34
Get this game but I have one problem you need to pay for new songs but still a great way of making music

by Cheap app cutting corners! on 2021/09/15 21:13
This app is amazing! You can record and make your own music I’ve been looking for a music maker app and this was the best one so far, because all the other music maker apps tell you “You Will have to pay something months to play this app” (even though it’s for free on the App Store. So I do recommend this app if you want tp make music and not pay to play it. So I’ll give it a 5 star anyway. Have fun playing this game 😊
its ok.

I’ve been using this app for a little over a year and have produced so many great songs using the samples from all the great artists that contribute to this app. I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking to create some amazing music on their own.
Hello!
by AC-Lux on 2021/09/11 13:04
I usually don’t write reviews and not sure if anyone on the team will see this, but I really like using the app! But… I’m not sure if this is a glitch or not. The “Buy” button that sits over the “Free Trial” option is gone! I don’t know why, buying packs individually has been helpful before. But that’s my review! I really really like it! I just thought I’d ask about the “buy” option, given it seems odd that it’d just… disappear.

Nothing to be said but that if music was a woman they’d have touched all body and left handprints forever sullying the way you approach her,while providing a plethora of new ways to approach her with new views and ideas. For any new,returning or veteran mixologist,it’s like God answered my Christmas list. Just get it the proof is in the pudding... and that’s word from PandaH family...

The best for producing
by TheValenz on 2021/07/25 08:27
Smooth audio packs, with endless possibilities. Major artists, to homegrown beat artists. Recommended for iPad in my opinion, this allows for volume control of the soundscapes, as ell as say access to effects.
Great App
by Jbjbsjnsksnmnama on 2021/07/24 21:16
In my opinion, this is an awesome app. I’ve always wanted to produce beats in the trap spectrum and the soundpacks are great. I especially like Trap Fortune; it’s just totally sick. All you need to do is find a melody or two (or three) and some drums that go well with it and boom! You got a beat!
This App is just AWESOME‼️
by Jeremmy Ortiz on 2021/07/24 03:17
This app makes you feel like an expert and is just an awesome experience!! But I would like you guys to add a button to change the music buttons that way someone can see what can that button do because is a little bit hard to learn every single button with random names.
The lengths
by legodimensionsmaster on 2021/07/23 22:46
I would appreciate the lengths of everything being the same, to make it easier to time everything in sync. Like Groovepad, for example.

by charlie psy on 2021/07/11 15:01
I wish I could change from minor to major keys. Either I can’t figure it out or it doesn’t do that. If it does please tell me how. If it doesn’t please tell me why it doesn’t. Otherwise it’s perfect as far as I’m concerned. Thank you.

The app to change my life
by Cik fix on 2020/11/03 04:52
I’ve written a great many things about this application and I wish I could remember the words and the feelings and share them with you because of my journey in my hardships I have not been able to be right minded enough to skillfully assess my life moment to moment as a normal person will have liked to but I am not a normal person I am not just a person as I’ve said I’m not just a junkie in fact I’m not a junkie I am a human being with emotions thoughts a mother a father children and I have and I have just like any other person have made some fortunate and other less than fortunate decisions in my life I recommend this application to download for anybody they can afford to put down whatever it is they’re doing and give the effort into doing something with emotions long enough to share this joy and loving life with musicWith everyone that you know who loves music you can be a joy no matter how much you think that you’re not or not able to be a joy to yourself you can at least see the people around you dance even though you think that they can’t be in that kind of mindset towards you you know that you can make some people smile who otherwise would not have
Jason Rose, Umm I might be stupid?
by hello hola hi die on 2021/01/30 00:47
So launchpad is amazing and is getting frequent updates, sound packs, and is always open for review. The free sound packs are amazing and the ones you buy could be better or worse depending on perspective. The one thing I don’t like about it is that once you’ve purchased something then exit out of the soundtrack you can’t restore your purchase so I might be missing something or I’m just stupid. I would really like if one of the developers could help me out here. I just read some of the reviews and saw that 2yrs ago someone had the same problem I did so where is the restore purchases page and by restore I mean get rid of the sound packs and get my money back because I bought one and realized it was the wrong one. If you could reply pls do ASAP. But this is still an amazing app and I would recommend people to download it. 20/10. Other than my bug it’s amazing so much appreciated developers for all you’ve done for this app.
Needs bluetooth MIDI desperately
by Filter_Emphasis on 2017/12/15 21:55
With all the great feature updates launchpad has had, it is becoming a strong contender for center spot in my live rig, however poor MIDI outboard control options when coupled with the loss of digital audio (it's one or the other with Apple IOS) are holding this app back from live greatness. Everyone including the developers know that getting Live digital audio out of a iPad cannot be done if you want to plug a MIDI controller into the iPad. So if like me you plug a launchpad MIDI controller into the iPad to bring the Launchpad app outboard in a fantastic way, the big sacrifice is audio quality, as you are forced by Apple to use the headphone socket as your audio source for integrating the live output of Launchpad into a mix with other instruments. Now this developer already provides Bluetooth MIDI for one of their other apps, so it's not as if they don't know how to do it! My dream is to connect my Launchpad MIDI controller to the iPad via Bluetooth, use it to play the Launchpad app and get back the digital audio output the iPad offers. There are 3rd party Bluetooth dongles on the market that could make this connection tomorrow if this developer brings Bluetooth Midi support into Launchpad. I want to use this app a lot more as it continuously evolves in good ways but the lack of bluetooth is a show stopper as i won't sacrifice audio quality live.
Fantastic app but...

Unless I’m missing something, there’s still no way to move projects between different iOS devices. In other words, there’s no way to start working on my iPhone and then pick up on my iPad. This app desperately needs iCloud syncing. I can bounce a project from Wave to Launchpad but somehow can’t go from Launchpad to Launchpad. Also, the store navigation experiences are completely different among Launchpad, Wave, and Groovebox. Things like the menu and store should be unified across all three apps. Also, there needs to be integration between Groovebox and Launchpad and Wave. Currently, my work is siloed in Groovebox. Lastly, for playing back recordings in Launchpad, it desperately needs background audio playback and precise standardized playback controls - pause, fast forward, rewind, etc. Right now, if I close the screen or move to another app during playback of my recordings, it completely stops the song and I have to restart it from the beginning. It’s extremely frustrating when I’m trying to listen to what I just did and have to constantly restart from the beginning of the track.
Wow!
by is it here? on 2020/09/28 08:07
I didn’t think this app was gonna be this amazing!!!! Along with blocs wave and Groovebox and a couple other apps along with my launchpad using a focusrite itrack dock for my audio interface and the possibilities are endless. I can design almost any sound I want now, sorry not much need to buy your sound packs anymore even tho I still get em sometimes for a few newer sounds. I’m really just starting to touch the surface of what it does. Tomorrow I have a volca sample coming in that I’m hoping I can integrate into this setup. It has midi sync so we’ll see. Buy the pro versions of their apps and a little hardware and almost no use for a DAW anymore. Super impressed!!!! Oh yeah. So a way to automate key changes would be awesome too and more than just the minor scale. Every time I update a sound from Blocs Wave to launchpad, Launchpad stops responding.
The Most Amazing App Ever....Until it crashes
by FilteredArt on 2019/06/18 23:08
Launchpad is a very important part of my production workflow but the crashing during recording is starting to frustrate me. I have a high end 2 gen iPad Pro 12.9”. I can handle multiple hardcore apps at the same time with no issue but Launchpad crashes every other session while recording. I have lost multiple perfect sessions due to this. You all need to do one of two things, preferably both. Add a saving option so you can come back to the same point in your project or, better yet, add a timeline that we can record directly to with a save option. And before anyone yells at me about how “that’s not the point of Launchpad”, why not. I love this app, please fix this. One more thing, the entire app does not crash, just sound output. Once it crashes the app is still running but sound is no longer present. Meters move, everything works, just no sound and that is where the recording ends.

• Pretty much anything Novation presents to the world is a smashing work of art and technology. • Empowering the iPhone is a brilliant idea—the User can transition to larger devices if desired. The strong iPhone offerings from every Novation app puts the ability to create meaningful art within everyday behavior. • Supremely stable. Powerful juggernaut of 0’s and 1’s that are transformed into the art of music. • My only sad-clown face is the fact a creation such as Launchpad—so technologically complex, beautifully designed, sprawling yet intuitive IA/UX, supremely efficient backend, foundations, and collaborative soul—is EXPECTED to be free. •• “To enhance their lives”, people will spend a few hundred $$ to install an open-source surveillance device in their own freakin’ home...Alexa...Echo,(***)...DO YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THE MICS ARE NOT ON 24/7? (***)Allegedly, of course, as covered by media around the WORLD—“Googs” and “Amázo”, please don’t send black helicopters for me in the night. •• Yet they whine for shelling out <$20 for Apps (¡PRODUCTS!) that are coded and designed into masterpieces like LAUNCHPAD? •• We must not forget that app Devs and Artists need lovin’, too. (And probably want to eat every day—just like greedy, bloodsucking billionaire tycoons!!). • Thank you Novation! I’ve evangelized several folks into buying add-on packs!
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!
by DOGGOS ARE MAGICAL on 2021/03/28 18:42

First, thanks to the developers and loop makers, you make a composers life so much easier. It is easy to not only generate ideas, but build compositions that are deep and theatrical. Second, my biggest wish is for more environmental and subtle orchestral loops. Other than that, you will not find a better or more versatile loop music creation app anywhere. The ability to move loops between sets you have onboard or have created (yup...you can do that) means I can customize any set anytime. I have scored both TV shows and movies with this app and it constantly exceeds my expectations as a creator, composer, and musician. Build off this app with a decent keyboard, guitar, or other instruments and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in production.
Please WE NEED MAJOR KEYS
by HueyMadeMeDoIt on 2019/10/16 16:26
This app and it’s sister apps are truly amazing, is there anyway to change them from minor to major, or are we stuck with sad minor keys. Believe you me, I LOVE minor scales I have all my musical life, but there comes a time where the major sets a completely different tone. I would give this app 5 stars, but without major keys or the many variants that exist in the world of music. I cannot give complete support to them anymore. I love making music with your apps, and yes there are many time where the keys don’t really matter as far as making high energy “happy music”. Please maybe see if you fantastic men and women can give it a shot!!! I love you work and it’s made me a better musician even when I thought music was over and done in my life. I’ve given up a lot for my musical dreams, foolishly at times, so would you make it happen for all of us who enjoy your app.... Or if I’m that air headed could you please redirect me to what I should be doing? Maybe there’s something I over looked. I’ll try my own methods of changing the keys for now, but having that power within your app would give me the JUICE I’ve been looking for. I think the people who listen to my music would appreciate it too. Right now my work sounds like Mozart just before he di3d....not too fun eh?
I love this game but I have some update ideas
by prymiads on 2020/05/06 15:16
Hello I have some update ideas. These really don’t matter I think but who knows if you read this or not. So really about the music packs I have Idea for it when you get it so I feel like me and some people would like it if it would tell us what sounds you used like what we heard in the sound pack. And my last idea for the lines. So here it is could we titles ares like work music and others and like there is a alert 🚨 if it notices we are changing it and like there is answers like go on or leave it the same cause one time I changed my that was my relaxing to hard time rock. So those are my ideas thanks for listening If you are reading this
Wonderful!
by EdgeLourde on 2019/08/09 22:31
This app is amazing! It’s fun, easy to use, and has a multitude of sound packs for users to purchase; many of which I have bought myself. Now, I recently got an iPad and re-downloaded the app and previously purchased sound packs, everything working smoothly. Then comes my one and only issue with this app. There is no way to transfer previously made songs to new devices. In my opinion, an email account system would be nice to allow the transfer of all app data, including songs, to new devices. Other than that, I have absolutely no issues with this fantastic launchpad app, which has allowed me and many others to explore the magic of music! 🎶
Update fixed export bug from Blocs Wave
by avmarko on 2017/12/13 02:43
Great fix, adjusting to the new layout but all in all this is easily one of the best initially free apps for sketching out sound/song ideas. The in app purchases are typically a good buy and you can preview much of the sounds in the packs. The effects are very good, some are brilliantly realized. I applaud Novation and Ampify for creating such a deep, immersive app for everyone.....Free! The response to my inquiry into a bug with the update was addressed very quickly and within a a few days they had fixed the bug, so kudos to the app support team for their acknowledgement of the bug and their response time! Indispensable as a tool in my studio and the audio import feature is beautifully streamlined, useful and awesome! Great job!
One Thing Missing
by B-dub1111 on 2017/12/06 23:04
Launchpad is a great app, one of my personal favorites. There is no better app that I’ve ever seen for playing back existing tracks broken down into loops and remixing them with effects. I love the fact that we can import our own loops that’s what makes it the most usable app. It is an app of endless possibilities and satisfying results. The one thing missing however came with the update today which is the labels on each pad. Unless there is a way to turn the labels back on in which I am missing, I see this is a step backwards, although I do like the design. I cannot remember which sample is on every pad and without the labels it makes it difficult especially when playing unfamiliar kits.
Love the App (minor suggestions)
by ojawn on 2019/11/09 05:24
I've been using Launchpad for years and it's become my secret weapon. So much that I hardly tell people I'm using it to make full tracks. However, my only wish is that some time in the nearest future it becomes possible to edit each pad. Things like being able to switch the note of an individual melody or drum, or even the tempo of some of the instruments. I think this fine tuning capability would really kick Launchpad up another notch. Will continue to use Launchpad regardless but as a person without full access to a DAW setup and program, I'd love to be able to get as close as possible in the meantime. Keep it up!!!
Been here since day 1
by DJChill85 on 2018/11/27 20:57
I’ve been using launchpad since the early days when I got my first iPad, I have to say it’s the best music app on the App Store. Initially I was able to put it down just due to the lack of features I felt that kept me engaged, but now with the addition of audio import and it working with blocs wave as well as their incredible, and extensive library of handcrafted loop packs...it’s a clear cut above the rest. I do wish there was a bigger board outside of a 6x6, as well as the limitation of having to play a specific loop for each row or it will turn off the other in that row, but maybe someday soon, it’s not a big enough pain for me to mark it down. Must have for any music enthusiast.
Give more music 🎶
by vesbal on 2021/01/11 18:08
I like the game but it gets boring after a while and sometimes gives you and others a headache 🤕 it used to be my favorite game but sorry my favorite game is now among us go check it out on the App Store. If you guys (or girls) give more music 🎵 i will play it but for now I don’t want to see it on my iPad again. I wanted the makers of the game to please make more free music and add so people can sing 🎤 on it but you don’t have to do the singing one this is an update on the review. P.S. thank you for the update on the game! So I’m back and I liked the update it’s nice 👍🏻 good job this is the last time I’m going to be on my review so thank you bye 😃😺 👁👄👁
Best Music App in Store Hands Down!
by TEMPTxNOVA on 2020/08/03 17:40
I really don’t know why this app isn’t #1 on the Apple store. Loops that can be altered and moved onto another sound loop with key adjusting and recording with publishing is definitely worth the download trust me and everyone else on this! I’ve ran into ZERO bugs and and created amazing songs that I jam out to! All the sounds in every pack comes with something unique and I love it. I love how you can mash sounds together in different sounds and slap some reverb on it too! You also have the option to input your own audio! Comes with a small price but it’s totally worth it! You have my 5 star review and now go write yours!!!
I might now know what to be when I grow up!
by icedragon0790 on 2020/05/16 02:21
I. LOVE. this. Game!!!!!!!!! So I’m young and all my life I wondered what to be when I grew up, like most kids my age, I never tried being D. J but i got this game today because my friend told me about it and I am obsessed I have so many recordings. I forgot to charge my headphones so it kinda annoys my dad because he’s working at home now so like, yeah. But I like it and my dad doesn’t complain because he knows I’m having a good time trying out knew rythems. Bye music class! Hello D.J’s. AND ALL THE PARENTS OUT THERE SAYING “ BEING A DJ IS A WASTE. GET A REAL JOB!” JUST HE HAPPY YOUR KIDS ARE HAPPY AND WEALTHY AND NOT DRUG DEALERS!!!!!!!!!!!! Please no one be a drug dealer. I’m over reacting again. Just great game!
Love the app! However it comes at a price, literally
by ÄV3?Ø on 2019/02/16 18:23
I’ve been on this app for a while now and made some music with it. However it’s limited to a couple of sound packs when you start off. Yes, there are free packs in the store, but there are only three currently as of writing this review. In my opinion I think in order to enjoy this app fully you have to purchase sound packs or additional add-ons. However this issue can be resolved by having free sound packs every month or so because 1. Some people on this app are young and probably don’t have any iTunes or money to spend on this app. 2. It’ll be cool for people who make music regularly and may want to spice things up with a new and free sound pack. Other than that, I love this app!
Genius
by xxxFORSAKEN1xxx on 2020/05/03 03:16
I’ve been using this app for 6 years. The sound packs are so unique and creative that you get so much more than just what your looking for. Customizing your own pack using different samples is a breeze. The sound packs are way ahead of their time and you can literally generate song ideas from the first bar of these riffs. Worth every single penny and very inexpensive. No problems with syncing right into garageband. No ads no bugs. Honestly my favorite app. Extremely user friendly, I’ve made so much music with this app I could go on all day and I literally hate just about every music app out there.
Needs list of everything about like everything
by dwnjdnwx on 2020/05/31 17:08
This game might need a fix on deleting things I recording because when I touch delete on the side my screen is just frozen like all the time I’ve tried 7 times today and still it may be because I’m not using delete right or it needs a fix also when I deleted the app and got it back did not work but the game is still a great work on and it has made me get into good beats and anything with it goes good with the buttons. 😀This game also needs a way that people can send songs to other people like in music the app
Please add feature that exports separate stems
by Strizbiz on 2020/08/26 16:03
Ok, it’s a great app, can’t really argue with how much it does for free, but I would gladly pay for all the iap features like I did for Blocs Wave and Groovebox, if Lauchpad could export the performances to separate audio files for each track, so I can mix it in a Daw either on my IPad or MacBook Pro to polish it and get it sounding as good as possible. I know this app isn’t really aimed at pro users as far a audio production goes but exporting stem would attract more users, and also the same level of interaction with Groovebox that exist with Blocs Wave would be great. I would love to simply import my projects from Groovebox, or send them from Groovebox to Launchpad, either way would be great.
AMAZING!
by jiffy church on 2018/07/18 13:24
This app is simple easy to use. But there are tons of fun fun sounds to put into your music. And it would be hard for me to pick a favorite sound pack. Maybe drum and bass. there are so many sound packs that cost money, why not make some of those free? Now I do completely understand that you are a company and a company does need to get paid, but just a few of those to be free would be nice. I have lots of music apps, and this one is my favorite. And I have checked out your other apps. I really liked groove box, but I wasn’t a big of blocs wave. But really do love you company and would like to see you make more amazing things!
Total Rubbish!
by 🔒 on 2017/12/15 13:38
I purchased the “audio import” feature thinking it would do what it claims – I was sorely mistaken. The app continually locks up when trying to import any of my sounds which essentially makes it useless. It’s also very disappointing that upon submitting a support ticket to Novation I only receive a canned response with irrelevant faq links two days later. Apparently I’ll have to contact Apple in order to get the money back I paid for this complete piece of crap! EDIT: In regards to the developer response; It was too much trouble going through all the hoops and confusing support process so Apple refunded my money. Honestly I don’t like apps with fake reviews and inflated five star ratings. Judging by the real ones this app would barely be 3/5. Maybe instead of paying for bogus reviews work on the product that customers are deceived into paying for and not getting.
Love it, but suggestion
by Shaddow Storm on 2020/02/14 23:58
I’ve been using this app since it was was first released and I absolutely love the whole thing so much! That being said, I do have an idea for an improvement, I think you should add a button to switch projects during live play, the launchpad has the capability if the software supports it. If I could change from one set to another with the push of a button it would help a lot with fading into the next track during live performances using the app. Just an idea, I love the program, and I’m a big fan of your instruments as well!
All Novation apps are ill...
by InkJetFuel on 2017/09/30 22:08
...and I can't wait to try out your hardware next. Shot out to Dibia$e. I really only have one request: Please, (please, please), allow all of 'em, esp. Launchpad & Blocs Wave, to sync projects across all my iOS devices, (via wifi, bluetooth, LTE whatever)—in the background. Spending gobs of time setting up my joints on my iPhone while running around the city... and then having it all show up on my iPad when I perform that night, would be theeeee' killer feature. Better than the next 10 sound packs combined ;) Thanks Novation.. now back to the beats! PS. A Launchpad trigger system for stage vocalist on the Apple Watch would be crazy ✨🔓👀
Great app but missing export features (Ableton)
by justMW on 2017/12/06 23:25
Update: love the new update but missing a “pro” version. Honestly love the look and feel of the new app and love how it works with blockswave & Groovebox. I just wish there was a “pro” version where you could dive a little deeper into midi editing or song arrangement / recoding. Please do this. Great app and even better along with the other notation apps, which are total gems! Deducted one star because it seems to have very limited export options, don’t see an Ableton export option. Would love to see a few more pro features like that added, but it’s def a keeper in the iPad arsenal.
Very Super Cool
by Thomas4040sixsix on 2020/11/29 22:21
I love this music board apps and I like all music beats and all the music buttons are totally super cool and very Awesome looking and like how you can mix the music up with different music beats and different drumming music beats and I totally like all the colored graphics and also all the other music sounds and the different music voices and different drumming music beats and I like and enjoy the whole music board apps and I hope you guys and your company can create and make more music boards for the musical professionals that are out there making and creating more music
Great sound pack(s) meh effects
by Satanic Fanatic on 2020/03/21 05:04
Overall Some cool sounds, but really too simple and the effects are just some Gates and loops. Great for playing around with I guess not much else. However the free cataclysm sound pack was pretty awesome, most apps like this don’t go as hard as that did. Felt like I was making a Soundtrack for the game doom or something. That alone was worth the download and 3 stars. Some of the features that they are charging for should probably be free if they want people to invest in a sound pack. Was hoping for some kind of integration with GarageBand or fruity loops but I guess it only does ableton live apps? This is so basic that if your using ableton live I don’t see the need for it.
Something very wrong
by wizman228 on 2018/02/06 00:08
I am having a hell of a time getting the app to load at all. I select it and try to open only to have it go to the icon over and over. it just won't open and after many tries it works. Only to have it not open next time I visit the app. I think this all started after an the most current update and/or after buying the new flanger fx. I don't want to rate it down because I love this app and use it all the time but right now something is very wrong. Same problem for me as soon as I loaded latest update. App won’t open on iPad or iPhone
There is none better on the App Store than Novation!
by None better on the App Store. on 2018/12/07 11:53
I have purchased every loop based app on the App Store and find that Launchpad coupled with Blocks Wave is the best bargain, bar none. I am an accredited music producer, who feels the ability to modify, then export entire songs worth of phrases is a tremendous advantage. Especially considering most packs are only a dollar or two. I wish I could share my most recent production using these products in this post to showcase the professional quality achieved with an iPad, an app and a few hours of my time. Keep nailing it Novation! You have a fan for life!
WHY?! Loved launchpad used it all the time-BUT- Hate new version
by DJ meowmixx on 2017/12/25 04:08
You guys had a great thing and then you had to go and mess jt up! The new interphase blows, you are taking the ability to customize away! Are you trying to move to a more game oriented app? I used this app all the time when not in studio, with live. You ruined a good thing- very disappointed. Why is there no way to go to the old user layout? Why cant I set up my grid how I want to easily anymore. Who's great idea was this. The app was so intuitive, easy to use, with depth and flexibility. So sad novation. You guys make great hardware. Amplify you guys s ck.

I Am Most Undeniably So Loving This Music App I Have Been Up All Night Playing The Music That I’ve Been Making Myself Just Jamming To The Many Different Styles Of Sweet Melodies With This Be Your Own D.J And Make Your Very Own Trap Music 🎵 Has Captured My Attention In Such A Extremely Entertaining Aspect, In Which No Other App I’ve Downloaded Ever Did! I Bow My Knee In Aw To The Developer’s Ingenious Creation Of This Greatly Appreciated Music App’s Making.💯🎶❤️😎👍😁❤️🎶💯. Great Work On Developing This App Can’t Wait To See What’s Next Great Work Indeed.💯👍💯
There’s NO adds!!!👏🏽😁
by Joshuapianocats on 2020/03/06 21:27
There is not a single add and that’s why I’m giving it five stars. It’s a pretty decent app though. It’s got future trap which is pretty good and future hip hop, and retro house and stuff like that, but there’s not a big selection at all. But on another bright note you can do like repeater or the wobble and that stuff for free which is AWESOME! It’s pretty fun, I’d played some better ones like DPM and Groovepad. But there is adds and you have to pay for the effects. So over all it’s a decent app and I think y’all should give it a try.
Absolutely amazing
by Vaktovian on 2017/10/28 08:06
I never write reviews, that alone should be testament to the fact that I love this app so much. I have so much respect for the creators, it seems like every app nowadays wants to shove an ad down your throat every five seconds. In the good hour I was messing around with it, I didn't see a single one. Several sound packs are free and the ones that aren't are very reasonably priced. It's high quality audio, there's a very handy "tips" page to help you get started, and it's extremely fun making a beat of your own. Five stars, you guys are awesome.
Launch ur sound
by Scamper the partypenguin on 2018/03/17 20:47
This is by far one of the best apps I have come across and is the first music app I have found that fits me. I'm not a cheap person but I would not of purchased anything from an app until I found launchpad, thank you all who put this together I can't wait to see what your next mods will be. One suggestion we'll more fin a hopeful question, a touchpad box for the effects so that your moving inside the box changes the x and y parimter and one or multi tap on a section to hold/release/ set depth or speed.? That would rock as an all in one app with featuring basically a split screen chaos pad,
Freaking amazing
by Wheelchair 413 on 2017/09/05 13:50
I love the iPad version of this application I am a aspiring DJ/Producer myself so the app for the phone is really good for me because I can bring my music with me everywhere I go because I have ideas going through my head constantly so if I'm on the road I can make something up real quick and I can post it to my Soundcloud right then and there which is really good because I'm signed to a record label and if they want something done right away I can do that and email it to them right then and there so this is really really good
Great app good job
by Oshawat on 2018/11/04 14:26
This app is the closest thing most people have to an actual launchpad brilliant job though i have a suggestion since this app ties into blocs wave could you add a feature to blocs wave where you can copy actual launchpad projects made by people like MDK or KASKOBI into blocs wave so people who don’t have enough money to buy a launchpad or the equipment to import the sounds they used can play the projects they have created gonna say once again great job novation hope it’s possible to add the feature that I mentioned keep up the good work
4 Stars because I need this one Feature!
by itsandrewdylan on 2019/12/27 21:47
I love this app and it has really helped me shape up my debut album with the sound packs provided. However, the one thing I really wish you’d give is a preview of the pack. Not the song y’all made, but we could click on the sound pack and have the option to listen to the sounds one by one before making the purchase. Sometimes the song y’all made is great but then I buy the pack, and the sounds are all there but majority of them I’ll never use, so that would be great!
Love it but
by Myles Koontz on 2018/02/13 02:45
I love this app. I am not a successful producer, at all, but this app is awesome. The loops and synths are great. I only would like it if you made it free to import sounds. I work with GarageBand to make some of my songs, and I would love to be able to import things I’ve made. I understand you have to make money somehow, but just giving you some feedback. Otherwise, great music app. I’ve made 2 songs using this, and from peoples responses to them, they’re way better than my GarageBand songs, so you beat apple, and that’s an achievement! 👍
I LOVE THIS APP 🔥🔥🔥🔥although one bug
by Thomfamgaming on 2020/12/05 17:55
This app is amazing I use it so much because I love to make music. Now their is one big just one just one bug. I have some apps that I like to go to while I’m listening to my recording but when I go into Disney emoji blitz’s (I’m not partnered with jam city) it sounds like the music is on the other side of a football field and just sounds off. So Developers plz change that so I can go into any app without it sounding like that. Yes I play Disney emoji blitz don’t judge me. 💪🏻🔥🔥🔥
please bring the old soundpacks back
by pump up the jam=🔥🔥🔥 on 2018/11/27 04:21
I was thinking about getting a soundpack and the next day its gone, i think some of the old one’s are some of the best to, its nice that the store is a little more organized but some of those soundpacks were worth keeping...anyway LOVE the app, i think it deserves a number one spot on the music making apps👍, oh and one more thing, can you make songs made (in the “recordings” part) like a playlist, that we can edit (slide up and down), i dont know why it bothers me but im pretty much OCD
ALMOST there
by Rebekkah Hilgraves on 2019/10/27 17:50
This really is an excellent app, with great features and new sounds being added regularly. But — and I know I’m odd — I want other time signatures! I’m working on a 5/4 track and really want to be able to use Launchpad for it. I’m using another percussion app for world beat instruments and it does support 5/4, 7/4, etc. But even using Ableton Link and doing math to get the beats to line up, the downbeat is invariably in the wrong place, at least four times out of five. You would be heroes if you could add this as an option!
It just amazing.
by Maynrd on 2020/11/18 17:03
I have been a Launchpad user for a few years now. In addition to the other Novation apps, Launchpad continues to be an outlet of musical creation. I do not consider myself professional on any level, however, I can entertain myself and create some great tracks! If you want intuitive, easy to use, and able to import your own sounds and tracks, give it a try! Thank you for continuing to update and bring more sound packs into the mix!
It’s amazing

It is very good and I hope may people get this beat making app because it’s not every day you get to make your own kind of music that you like in your own way. What I’m trying to say is that you own everything on this app and you feel like you can’t break any rules because you make the rules in this app. Make sure no one tells you otherwise or you’ll have very poor decisions in your life, like not getting this app. ;)
Best music
by c_j music2143 on 2019/10/06 13:03
I love this app. It allows you so much diversity in the music and allows you to make awesome tracks. One thing i really love is that you can post the music you create, i post mine on soundcloud. One thing i would like for the creator to change is to make it so while im making the song and recording it that i could say change the volume or number of beats but quickly so it doesn’t mess up the song. But overall besides that one detail i love this app and anyone who is interested in music should get this. :)
It’s fun and cool 😊❤️❤️❤️
by Odyssey1911 on 2019/06/24 00:09
I love this app I love making beats and new sounds and I have made some songs with it.I really like this app and if you are doubting this app I know how you feel that is how I was,but trust me in my opinion I really like it but I hope they did not have to make you pay for like textures and very very cool sounds I am not saying it’s over priced but I don’t really want to pay for cool and awesome sounds. So all I am trying to say this is a VERY cool app and you should get it HOPE you ENJOY IT 😊
Expensive!!!
by MichaelRoque on 2020/06/28 18:25
Overall the app is pretty good and well designed but it could use work on its appearance. The only thing that really bugs me is how expensive the sounds are for just a few loops. I think if the sounds were less expensive I would have bought more. The app has a lot of potential and I think it could be one of the superior beat making apps. Also, more synth-wave/ 80’s loops could be more beneficial since that’s the only reason I download this app.

by KeriaArtJourney on 2021/12/05 17:35
I just started dabbling into music earlier this year and Launch pad has been a very easy tool for me to mix beats and upload my own beats and vocals to others produced works.

Launchcontrol XL no longer functions
by helloSIRjeremy on 2021/12/05 04:25
The combination of using a launchpad x and a launchcontrol xl made this app awesome. Now, the launchcontrol crashes the app whenever it is plugged in. I have not found a fix, and I do hope this gets resolved.
Awesome!
by Eyshbdb on 2021/12/04 22:08
This app has allowed me to continue down my EDM and DJ-ing path. There only is a few issues, with there being only a few good trap-py type of music on the app. I’m a dubstep dj and I like to add beats to my songs, but there is only drums. Any other way it’s awesome!
Music DJ
by Charli Hewitt on 2021/12/04 04:54
This game is so fun. I feel like a real DJ. I love how there is different beets and other hints like volumes and you can even record your amazing beets that you made. I gave it a four star because I love game and it is so much. It also does not take so much data and it will not lag and I have over 45 apps and again it does not lag at all. Anyways thank you for reading my review
Best coping mechanism during COVID 2020 for me
by Snipergirl1 on 2021/12/04 03:51
I love this software. It really got me through my stress and depression with everything happening with Covid. It’s so satisfying to create my own music. I’ve made over 50 songs!
Honest review
by just e one on 2021/12/04 02:45
For a phone app this program is pretty solid. You can make produce rich beats that you can build on with a more sophisticated computer based production program. I have been using this app for years and it’s been very consistent in quality.
I love this game
by archer of scullzz on 2021/12/04 00:17
This game is the best because it pretends that you’re a DJ
Money -_-
by toga love girl on 2021/12/03 01:15
Why does basically everything cost money??? Wanna buy a new song? You need to pay for it!
Love this :)

This app is incredibly user friendly, I’ll use it everywhere, while getting my nails done, while working, it makes my day! I absolutely love it!
Yezzah!
by Darkly Road on 2021/12/02 04:00
I’ve used this app for years and I have to say that it has been a total and complete honor to have access to all of the wonderful samples that so many have created in order for so many to utilize to re arrange etc into something enjoyable. I truly believe that this application has helped me out and through some very trying times, thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart :)

A pc template
by oNimEnAngRy on 2021/11/20 01:27
It would make this already great app perfect. A template of sorts that could be loaded with my own samples and then the whole thing imported to a playable pad. Exportable stems would also put launchpad back on the top of the pile
AMAZING
by user12335687 on 2021/11/19 00:47
This app should receive a 5 star I love this app so much you can literally make an album their is so much to choose from.If your into making music and DJ this is the go to app the app is amazing I’m grateful for who made it!

Listen, this is a really great app.I’ve actually created some really good soundtracks and songs with these and they always turn out amazing thanks to the Launchpad. I really hope you at least more songs everything sounds wonderful and I can’t get enough, keep doing great, this is amazing!
Just another great one from Novation
by surferobx on 2021/11/04 15:43
I can see that it’s going to be easy to use and also the feature to be able to load loops and apply fax is amazing. I didn’t think I would be able to find something like this quickly and free. Not sure if this will sync with Launchpad keyboard but I’m going to give this a shot at some point.I’m already loving this app. Mister Lo Figh

I have a suggestion
by oldhouseonthehill on 2021/10/25 01:11
When I first got this app, there was WAY more packs in the musical artist-made packs section. There was one musical artist-made pack I really liked that called something like "chainsaw" that was removed in an update, so can you get the other devs to bring the removed packs back?
Simply great
by Turneric on 2021/10/23 15:02
Fantastic app for those that enjoy and love music. Wether a boba Fide music maker, remixer, pro or amateur. This app will have you hooked! Beautifully designed and smartly put together. The whole suit of apps and functionalities from this developer is outstanding and so far unmatched for the price. I hope it never goes away and it never ceases to offer a free version - that was my gateway to getting hooked! Awesome way to discover new musicIan’s and creators as as well.

Free to play
by HOLLOW DAB CAT on 2021/10/18 23:05
I think it should be more free to play I only have the free Mix of sounds and sometimes want to use a different Mix of sounds. From the YouTuber and TikToker Earthbound Kid
Great App!
by happyyasu09 on 2021/10/16 12:33
I like the app, it comes with calming color palette, easy to use mechanics of creating music with loops and other custom sounds. The tech support is great! I had a question and it was resolved super fast. This is a great app to create or play live music. <3

Tempo Is Weird
by Gixsa on 2021/10/10 17:21
When I import things that all have the same tempo in a blank sound pack it ends up getting played in slow motion. This is a problem, it might have even messed up the tempo. pls fix.
Best app ever!

App randomly loses sound
by Jynoa13624811451489 on 2021/09/29 19:37
I love this app, but when I’m creating songs the sound will randomly stop. Sometimes when I close the app and reload I still cant hear anything. The buttons will press and the animations will work, but the sound just will not play.
Launched Me Into My Music Career
by Ms. B77 on 2021/09/29 13:29
Forever grateful for this app, because of it I have an album up and will be producing more. I don’t want to steal all the credit though and always give thanks to the apps for helping me. It’s beyond amazing and I’m so happy something like this exists. I do have a question though. I did mention I have an album up. Is it ok to do that using these sounds? If not, let me know! Anyway this is my secret weapon in so much of my work.
Fantastic musical experience
by jimmburrell on 2021/09/28 18:44
Extremely musical and therapeutic to use while creating good music.

This subscription took all the fun out
by Imcsmithers on 2021/09/25 21:38
So unfortunate to see creative tools being less accessible to kids, teachers, beginners and so much more. This app was my favorite thing for years. To come back to it just to have some fun with one of the greatest music apps and see a fee. It’s just kinda lame. I’m not mad just disappointed.
This is awesome must get
by usability handling on 2021/09/22 21:34
Get this game but I have one problem you need to pay for new songs but still a great way of making music

by Cheap app cutting corners! on 2021/09/15 21:13
This app is amazing! You can record and make your own music I’ve been looking for a music maker app and this was the best one so far, because all the other music maker apps tell you “You Will have to pay something months to play this app” (even though it’s for free on the App Store. So I do recommend this app if you want tp make music and not pay to play it. So I’ll give it a 5 star anyway. Have fun playing this game 😊
its ok.

Hello!
by AC-Lux on 2021/09/11 13:04
I usually don’t write reviews and not sure if anyone on the team will see this, but I really like using the app! But… I’m not sure if this is a glitch or not. The “Buy” button that sits over the “Free Trial” option is gone! I don’t know why, buying packs individually has been helpful before. But that’s my review! I really really like it! I just thought I’d ask about the “buy” option, given it seems odd that it’d just… disappear.

Nothing to be said but that if music was a woman they’d have touched all body and left handprints forever sullying the way you approach her,while providing a plethora of new ways to approach her with new views and ideas. For any new,returning or veteran mixologist,it’s like God answered my Christmas list. Just get it the proof is in the pudding... and that’s word from PandaH family...
Best app for making beats and sending em to ur freinds

Their are so manny beat style to choose from witch gives people freedom
The best for producing
by TheValenz on 2021/07/25 08:27
Smooth audio packs, with endless possibilities. Major artists, to homegrown beat artists. Recommended for iPad in my opinion, this allows for volume control of the soundscapes, as ell as say access to effects.
Great App
by Jbjbsjnsksnmnama on 2021/07/24 21:16
In my opinion, this is an awesome app. I’ve always wanted to produce beats in the trap spectrum and the soundpacks are great. I especially like Trap Fortune; it’s just totally sick. All you need to do is find a melody or two (or three) and some drums that go well with it and boom! You got a beat!
This App is just AWESOME‼️
by Jeremmy Ortiz on 2021/07/24 03:17
This app makes you feel like an expert and is just an awesome experience!! But I would like you guys to add a button to change the music buttons that way someone can see what can that button do because is a little bit hard to learn every single button with random names.
The lengths
by legodimensionsmaster on 2021/07/23 22:46
I would appreciate the lengths of everything being the same, to make it easier to time everything in sync. Like Groovepad, for example.

by charlie psy on 2021/07/11 15:01
I wish I could change from minor to major keys. Either I can’t figure it out or it doesn’t do that. If it does please tell me how. If it doesn’t please tell me why it doesn’t. Otherwise it’s perfect as far as I’m concerned. Thank you.

Are there plans to make a transition option? Would be nice to be able to transition to a new sound pack without stopping and loading a new sound pack.

The app to change my life
by Cik fix on 2020/11/03 04:52
I’ve written a great many things about this application and I wish I could remember the words and the feelings and share them with you because of my journey in my hardships I have not been able to be right minded enough to skillfully assess my life moment to moment as a normal person will have liked to but I am not a normal person I am not just a person as I’ve said I’m not just a junkie in fact I’m not a junkie I am a human being with emotions thoughts a mother a father children and I have and I have just like any other person have made some fortunate and other less than fortunate decisions in my life I recommend this application to download for anybody they can afford to put down whatever it is they’re doing and give the effort into doing something with emotions long enough to share this joy and loving life with musicWith everyone that you know who loves music you can be a joy no matter how much you think that you’re not or not able to be a joy to yourself you can at least see the people around you dance even though you think that they can’t be in that kind of mindset towards you you know that you can make some people smile who otherwise would not have
Jason Rose, Umm I might be stupid?
by hello hola hi die on 2021/01/30 00:47
So launchpad is amazing and is getting frequent updates, sound packs, and is always open for review. The free sound packs are amazing and the ones you buy could be better or worse depending on perspective. The one thing I don’t like about it is that once you’ve purchased something then exit out of the soundtrack you can’t restore your purchase so I might be missing something or I’m just stupid. I would really like if one of the developers could help me out here. I just read some of the reviews and saw that 2yrs ago someone had the same problem I did so where is the restore purchases page and by restore I mean get rid of the sound packs and get my money back because I bought one and realized it was the wrong one. If you could reply pls do ASAP. But this is still an amazing app and I would recommend people to download it. 20/10. Other than my bug it’s amazing so much appreciated developers for all you’ve done for this app.
Needs bluetooth MIDI desperately
by Filter_Emphasis on 2017/12/15 21:55
With all the great feature updates launchpad has had, it is becoming a strong contender for center spot in my live rig, however poor MIDI outboard control options when coupled with the loss of digital audio (it's one or the other with Apple IOS) are holding this app back from live greatness. Everyone including the developers know that getting Live digital audio out of a iPad cannot be done if you want to plug a MIDI controller into the iPad. So if like me you plug a launchpad MIDI controller into the iPad to bring the Launchpad app outboard in a fantastic way, the big sacrifice is audio quality, as you are forced by Apple to use the headphone socket as your audio source for integrating the live output of Launchpad into a mix with other instruments. Now this developer already provides Bluetooth MIDI for one of their other apps, so it's not as if they don't know how to do it! My dream is to connect my Launchpad MIDI controller to the iPad via Bluetooth, use it to play the Launchpad app and get back the digital audio output the iPad offers. There are 3rd party Bluetooth dongles on the market that could make this connection tomorrow if this developer brings Bluetooth Midi support into Launchpad. I want to use this app a lot more as it continuously evolves in good ways but the lack of bluetooth is a show stopper as i won't sacrifice audio quality live.
Fantastic app but...
by robungar on 2018/12/17 12:32
Unless I’m missing something, there’s still no way to move projects between different iOS devices. In other words, there’s no way to start working on my iPhone and then pick up on my iPad. This app desperately needs iCloud syncing. I can bounce a project from Wave to Launchpad but somehow can’t go from Launchpad to Launchpad. Also, the store navigation experiences are completely different among Launchpad, Wave, and Groovebox. Things like the menu and store should be unified across all three apps. Also, there needs to be integration between Groovebox and Launchpad and Wave. Currently, my work is siloed in Groovebox. Lastly, for playing back recordings in Launchpad, it desperately needs background audio playback and precise standardized playback controls - pause, fast forward, rewind, etc. Right now, if I close the screen or move to another app during playback of my recordings, it completely stops the song and I have to restart it from the beginning. It’s extremely frustrating when I’m trying to listen to what I just did and have to constantly restart from the beginning of the track.
Wow!
by is it here? on 2020/09/28 08:07
I didn’t think this app was gonna be this amazing!!!! Along with blocs wave and Groovebox and a couple other apps along with my launchpad using a focusrite itrack dock for my audio interface and the possibilities are endless. I can design almost any sound I want now, sorry not much need to buy your sound packs anymore even tho I still get em sometimes for a few newer sounds. I’m really just starting to touch the surface of what it does. Tomorrow I have a volca sample coming in that I’m hoping I can integrate into this setup. It has midi sync so we’ll see. Buy the pro versions of their apps and a little hardware and almost no use for a DAW anymore. Super impressed!!!! Oh yeah. So a way to automate key changes would be awesome too and more than just the minor scale. Every time I update a sound from Blocs Wave to launchpad, Launchpad stops responding.
The Most Amazing App Ever....Until it crashes
by FilteredArt on 2019/06/18 23:08
Launchpad is a very important part of my production workflow but the crashing during recording is starting to frustrate me. I have a high end 2 gen iPad Pro 12.9”. I can handle multiple hardcore apps at the same time with no issue but Launchpad crashes every other session while recording. I have lost multiple perfect sessions due to this. You all need to do one of two things, preferably both. Add a saving option so you can come back to the same point in your project or, better yet, add a timeline that we can record directly to with a save option. And before anyone yells at me about how “that’s not the point of Launchpad”, why not. I love this app, please fix this. One more thing, the entire app does not crash, just sound output. Once it crashes the app is still running but sound is no longer present. Meters move, everything works, just no sound and that is where the recording ends.

• Pretty much anything Novation presents to the world is a smashing work of art and technology. • Empowering the iPhone is a brilliant idea—the User can transition to larger devices if desired. The strong iPhone offerings from every Novation app puts the ability to create meaningful art within everyday behavior. • Supremely stable. Powerful juggernaut of 0’s and 1’s that are transformed into the art of music. • My only sad-clown face is the fact a creation such as Launchpad—so technologically complex, beautifully designed, sprawling yet intuitive IA/UX, supremely efficient backend, foundations, and collaborative soul—is EXPECTED to be free. •• “To enhance their lives”, people will spend a few hundred $$ to install an open-source surveillance device in their own freakin’ home...Alexa...Echo,(***)...DO YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THE MICS ARE NOT ON 24/7? (***)Allegedly, of course, as covered by media around the WORLD—“Googs” and “Amázo”, please don’t send black helicopters for me in the night. •• Yet they whine for shelling out <$20 for Apps (¡PRODUCTS!) that are coded and designed into masterpieces like LAUNCHPAD? •• We must not forget that app Devs and Artists need lovin’, too. (And probably want to eat every day—just like greedy, bloodsucking billionaire tycoons!!). • Thank you Novation! I’ve evangelized several folks into buying add-on packs!
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!
by DOGGOS ARE MAGICAL on 2021/03/28 18:42
I’m able to make so many different beats!!!! It’s awesome because you press something at the top and you could change the beats! I am so grateful for this game❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ this is the most awesome music game ever I was like mom you you like this game don’t you?

First, thanks to the developers and loop makers, you make a composers life so much easier. It is easy to not only generate ideas, but build compositions that are deep and theatrical. Second, my biggest wish is for more environmental and subtle orchestral loops. Other than that, you will not find a better or more versatile loop music creation app anywhere. The ability to move loops between sets you have onboard or have created (yup...you can do that) means I can customize any set anytime. I have scored both TV shows and movies with this app and it constantly exceeds my expectations as a creator, composer, and musician. Build off this app with a decent keyboard, guitar, or other instruments and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in production.
Please WE NEED MAJOR KEYS
by HueyMadeMeDoIt on 2019/10/16 16:26
This app and it’s sister apps are truly amazing, is there anyway to change them from minor to major, or are we stuck with sad minor keys. Believe you me, I LOVE minor scales I have all my musical life, but there comes a time where the major sets a completely different tone. I would give this app 5 stars, but without major keys or the many variants that exist in the world of music. I cannot give complete support to them anymore. I love making music with your apps, and yes there are many time where the keys don’t really matter as far as making high energy “happy music”. Please maybe see if you fantastic men and women can give it a shot!!! I love you work and it’s made me a better musician even when I thought music was over and done in my life. I’ve given up a lot for my musical dreams, foolishly at times, so would you make it happen for all of us who enjoy your app.... Or if I’m that air headed could you please redirect me to what I should be doing? Maybe there’s something I over looked. I’ll try my own methods of changing the keys for now, but having that power within your app would give me the JUICE I’ve been looking for. I think the people who listen to my music would appreciate it too. Right now my work sounds like Mozart just before he di3d....not too fun eh?
I love this game but I have some update ideas
by prymiads on 2020/05/06 15:16
Hello I have some update ideas. These really don’t matter I think but who knows if you read this or not. So really about the music packs I have Idea for it when you get it so I feel like me and some people would like it if it would tell us what sounds you used like what we heard in the sound pack. And my last idea for the lines. So here it is could we titles ares like work music and others and like there is a alert 🚨 if it notices we are changing it and like there is answers like go on or leave it the same cause one time I changed my that was my relaxing to hard time rock. So those are my ideas thanks for listening If you are reading this
Wonderful!
by EdgeLourde on 2019/08/09 22:31
This app is amazing! It’s fun, easy to use, and has a multitude of sound packs for users to purchase; many of which I have bought myself. Now, I recently got an iPad and re-downloaded the app and previously purchased sound packs, everything working smoothly. Then comes my one and only issue with this app. There is no way to transfer previously made songs to new devices. In my opinion, an email account system would be nice to allow the transfer of all app data, including songs, to new devices. Other than that, I have absolutely no issues with this fantastic launchpad app, which has allowed me and many others to explore the magic of music! 🎶
Update fixed export bug from Blocs Wave
by avmarko on 2017/12/13 02:43
Great fix, adjusting to the new layout but all in all this is easily one of the best initially free apps for sketching out sound/song ideas. The in app purchases are typically a good buy and you can preview much of the sounds in the packs. The effects are very good, some are brilliantly realized. I applaud Novation and Ampify for creating such a deep, immersive app for everyone.....Free! The response to my inquiry into a bug with the update was addressed very quickly and within a a few days they had fixed the bug, so kudos to the app support team for their acknowledgement of the bug and their response time! Indispensable as a tool in my studio and the audio import feature is beautifully streamlined, useful and awesome! Great job!
One Thing Missing
by B-dub1111 on 2017/12/06 23:04
Launchpad is a great app, one of my personal favorites. There is no better app that I’ve ever seen for playing back existing tracks broken down into loops and remixing them with effects. I love the fact that we can import our own loops that’s what makes it the most usable app. It is an app of endless possibilities and satisfying results. The one thing missing however came with the update today which is the labels on each pad. Unless there is a way to turn the labels back on in which I am missing, I see this is a step backwards, although I do like the design. I cannot remember which sample is on every pad and without the labels it makes it difficult especially when playing unfamiliar kits.
Love the App (minor suggestions)
by ojawn on 2019/11/09 05:24
I've been using Launchpad for years and it's become my secret weapon. So much that I hardly tell people I'm using it to make full tracks. However, my only wish is that some time in the nearest future it becomes possible to edit each pad. Things like being able to switch the note of an individual melody or drum, or even the tempo of some of the instruments. I think this fine tuning capability would really kick Launchpad up another notch. Will continue to use Launchpad regardless but as a person without full access to a DAW setup and program, I'd love to be able to get as close as possible in the meantime. Keep it up!!!
Been here since day 1
by DJChill85 on 2018/11/27 20:57
I’ve been using launchpad since the early days when I got my first iPad, I have to say it’s the best music app on the App Store. Initially I was able to put it down just due to the lack of features I felt that kept me engaged, but now with the addition of audio import and it working with blocs wave as well as their incredible, and extensive library of handcrafted loop packs...it’s a clear cut above the rest. I do wish there was a bigger board outside of a 6x6, as well as the limitation of having to play a specific loop for each row or it will turn off the other in that row, but maybe someday soon, it’s not a big enough pain for me to mark it down. Must have for any music enthusiast.
Give more music 🎶
by vesbal on 2021/01/11 18:08
I like the game but it gets boring after a while and sometimes gives you and others a headache 🤕 it used to be my favorite game but sorry my favorite game is now among us go check it out on the App Store. If you guys (or girls) give more music 🎵 i will play it but for now I don’t want to see it on my iPad again. I wanted the makers of the game to please make more free music and add so people can sing 🎤 on it but you don’t have to do the singing one this is an update on the review. P.S. thank you for the update on the game! So I’m back and I liked the update it’s nice 👍🏻 good job this is the last time I’m going to be on my review so thank you bye 😃😺 👁👄👁
Best Music App in Store Hands Down!
by TEMPTxNOVA on 2020/08/03 17:40
I really don’t know why this app isn’t #1 on the Apple store. Loops that can be altered and moved onto another sound loop with key adjusting and recording with publishing is definitely worth the download trust me and everyone else on this! I’ve ran into ZERO bugs and and created amazing songs that I jam out to! All the sounds in every pack comes with something unique and I love it. I love how you can mash sounds together in different sounds and slap some reverb on it too! You also have the option to input your own audio! Comes with a small price but it’s totally worth it! You have my 5 star review and now go write yours!!!
I might now know what to be when I grow up!
by icedragon0790 on 2020/05/16 02:21
I. LOVE. this. Game!!!!!!!!! So I’m young and all my life I wondered what to be when I grew up, like most kids my age, I never tried being D. J but i got this game today because my friend told me about it and I am obsessed I have so many recordings. I forgot to charge my headphones so it kinda annoys my dad because he’s working at home now so like, yeah. But I like it and my dad doesn’t complain because he knows I’m having a good time trying out knew rythems. Bye music class! Hello D.J’s. AND ALL THE PARENTS OUT THERE SAYING “ BEING A DJ IS A WASTE. GET A REAL JOB!” JUST HE HAPPY YOUR KIDS ARE HAPPY AND WEALTHY AND NOT DRUG DEALERS!!!!!!!!!!!! Please no one be a drug dealer. I’m over reacting again. Just great game!
Love the app! However it comes at a price, literally
by ÄV3?Ø on 2019/02/16 18:23
I’ve been on this app for a while now and made some music with it. However it’s limited to a couple of sound packs when you start off. Yes, there are free packs in the store, but there are only three currently as of writing this review. In my opinion I think in order to enjoy this app fully you have to purchase sound packs or additional add-ons. However this issue can be resolved by having free sound packs every month or so because 1. Some people on this app are young and probably don’t have any iTunes or money to spend on this app. 2. It’ll be cool for people who make music regularly and may want to spice things up with a new and free sound pack. Other than that, I love this app!
Genius
by xxxFORSAKEN1xxx on 2020/05/03 03:16
I’ve been using this app for 6 years. The sound packs are so unique and creative that you get so much more than just what your looking for. Customizing your own pack using different samples is a breeze. The sound packs are way ahead of their time and you can literally generate song ideas from the first bar of these riffs. Worth every single penny and very inexpensive. No problems with syncing right into garageband. No ads no bugs. Honestly my favorite app. Extremely user friendly, I’ve made so much music with this app I could go on all day and I literally hate just about every music app out there.
Needs list of everything about like everything
by dwnjdnwx on 2020/05/31 17:08
This game might need a fix on deleting things I recording because when I touch delete on the side my screen is just frozen like all the time I’ve tried 7 times today and still it may be because I’m not using delete right or it needs a fix also when I deleted the app and got it back did not work but the game is still a great work on and it has made me get into good beats and anything with it goes good with the buttons. 😀This game also needs a way that people can send songs to other people like in music the app
Please add feature that exports separate stems
by Strizbiz on 2020/08/26 16:03
Ok, it’s a great app, can’t really argue with how much it does for free, but I would gladly pay for all the iap features like I did for Blocs Wave and Groovebox, if Lauchpad could export the performances to separate audio files for each track, so I can mix it in a Daw either on my IPad or MacBook Pro to polish it and get it sounding as good as possible. I know this app isn’t really aimed at pro users as far a audio production goes but exporting stem would attract more users, and also the same level of interaction with Groovebox that exist with Blocs Wave would be great. I would love to simply import my projects from Groovebox, or send them from Groovebox to Launchpad, either way would be great.
AMAZING!
by jiffy church on 2018/07/18 13:24
This app is simple easy to use. But there are tons of fun fun sounds to put into your music. And it would be hard for me to pick a favorite sound pack. Maybe drum and bass. there are so many sound packs that cost money, why not make some of those free? Now I do completely understand that you are a company and a company does need to get paid, but just a few of those to be free would be nice. I have lots of music apps, and this one is my favorite. And I have checked out your other apps. I really liked groove box, but I wasn’t a big of blocs wave. But really do love you company and would like to see you make more amazing things!
Total Rubbish!
by 🔒 on 2017/12/15 13:38
I purchased the “audio import” feature thinking it would do what it claims – I was sorely mistaken. The app continually locks up when trying to import any of my sounds which essentially makes it useless. It’s also very disappointing that upon submitting a support ticket to Novation I only receive a canned response with irrelevant faq links two days later. Apparently I’ll have to contact Apple in order to get the money back I paid for this complete piece of crap! EDIT: In regards to the developer response; It was too much trouble going through all the hoops and confusing support process so Apple refunded my money. Honestly I don’t like apps with fake reviews and inflated five star ratings. Judging by the real ones this app would barely be 3/5. Maybe instead of paying for bogus reviews work on the product that customers are deceived into paying for and not getting.
Love it, but suggestion
by Shaddow Storm on 2020/02/14 23:58
I’ve been using this app since it was was first released and I absolutely love the whole thing so much! That being said, I do have an idea for an improvement, I think you should add a button to switch projects during live play, the launchpad has the capability if the software supports it. If I could change from one set to another with the push of a button it would help a lot with fading into the next track during live performances using the app. Just an idea, I love the program, and I’m a big fan of your instruments as well!
All Novation apps are ill...
by InkJetFuel on 2017/09/30 22:08
...and I can't wait to try out your hardware next. Shot out to Dibia$e. I really only have one request: Please, (please, please), allow all of 'em, esp. Launchpad & Blocs Wave, to sync projects across all my iOS devices, (via wifi, bluetooth, LTE whatever)—in the background. Spending gobs of time setting up my joints on my iPhone while running around the city... and then having it all show up on my iPad when I perform that night, would be theeeee' killer feature. Better than the next 10 sound packs combined ;) Thanks Novation.. now back to the beats! PS. A Launchpad trigger system for stage vocalist on the Apple Watch would be crazy ✨🔓👀
Great app but missing export features (Ableton)
by justMW on 2017/12/06 23:25
Update: love the new update but missing a “pro” version. Honestly love the look and feel of the new app and love how it works with blockswave & Groovebox. I just wish there was a “pro” version where you could dive a little deeper into midi editing or song arrangement / recoding. Please do this. Great app and even better along with the other notation apps, which are total gems! Deducted one star because it seems to have very limited export options, don’t see an Ableton export option. Would love to see a few more pro features like that added, but it’s def a keeper in the iPad arsenal.
Very Super Cool
by Thomas4040sixsix on 2020/11/29 22:21
I love this music board apps and I like all music beats and all the music buttons are totally super cool and very Awesome looking and like how you can mix the music up with different music beats and different drumming music beats and I totally like all the colored graphics and also all the other music sounds and the different music voices and different drumming music beats and I like and enjoy the whole music board apps and I hope you guys and your company can create and make more music boards for the musical professionals that are out there making and creating more music
Great sound pack(s) meh effects
by Satanic Fanatic on 2020/03/21 05:04
Overall Some cool sounds, but really too simple and the effects are just some Gates and loops. Great for playing around with I guess not much else. However the free cataclysm sound pack was pretty awesome, most apps like this don’t go as hard as that did. Felt like I was making a Soundtrack for the game doom or something. That alone was worth the download and 3 stars. Some of the features that they are charging for should probably be free if they want people to invest in a sound pack. Was hoping for some kind of integration with GarageBand or fruity loops but I guess it only does ableton live apps? This is so basic that if your using ableton live I don’t see the need for it.
Something very wrong
by wizman228 on 2018/02/06 00:08
I am having a hell of a time getting the app to load at all. I select it and try to open only to have it go to the icon over and over. it just won't open and after many tries it works. Only to have it not open next time I visit the app. I think this all started after an the most current update and/or after buying the new flanger fx. I don't want to rate it down because I love this app and use it all the time but right now something is very wrong. Same problem for me as soon as I loaded latest update. App won’t open on iPad or iPhone
There is none better on the App Store than Novation!
by None better on the App Store. on 2018/12/07 11:53
I have purchased every loop based app on the App Store and find that Launchpad coupled with Blocks Wave is the best bargain, bar none. I am an accredited music producer, who feels the ability to modify, then export entire songs worth of phrases is a tremendous advantage. Especially considering most packs are only a dollar or two. I wish I could share my most recent production using these products in this post to showcase the professional quality achieved with an iPad, an app and a few hours of my time. Keep nailing it Novation! You have a fan for life!
WHY?! Loved launchpad used it all the time-BUT- Hate new version
by DJ meowmixx on 2017/12/25 04:08
You guys had a great thing and then you had to go and mess jt up! The new interphase blows, you are taking the ability to customize away! Are you trying to move to a more game oriented app? I used this app all the time when not in studio, with live. You ruined a good thing- very disappointed. Why is there no way to go to the old user layout? Why cant I set up my grid how I want to easily anymore. Who's great idea was this. The app was so intuitive, easy to use, with depth and flexibility. So sad novation. You guys make great hardware. Amplify you guys s ck.
“!!!!! I’m Definitely In Love With This App!!!!!”
by D.K.Freedom on 2020/10/03 14:48
(“!!!!!Holy Marry Mother Of All Might God!!!!!”)... I Am Most Undeniably So Loving This Music App I Have Been Up All Night Playing The Music That I’ve Been Making Myself Just Jamming To The Many Different Styles Of Sweet Melodies With This Be Your Own D.J And Make Your Very Own Trap Music 🎵 Has Captured My Attention In Such A Extremely Entertaining Aspect, In Which No Other App I’ve Downloaded Ever Did! I Bow My Knee In Aw To The Developer’s Ingenious Creation Of This Greatly Appreciated Music App’s Making.💯🎶❤️😎👍😁❤️🎶💯. Great Work On Developing This App Can’t Wait To See What’s Next Great Work Indeed.💯👍💯
There’s NO adds!!!👏🏽😁
by Joshuapianocats on 2020/03/06 21:27
There is not a single add and that’s why I’m giving it five stars. It’s a pretty decent app though. It’s got future trap which is pretty good and future hip hop, and retro house and stuff like that, but there’s not a big selection at all. But on another bright note you can do like repeater or the wobble and that stuff for free which is AWESOME! It’s pretty fun, I’d played some better ones like DPM and Groovepad. But there is adds and you have to pay for the effects. So over all it’s a decent app and I think y’all should give it a try.
Absolutely amazing
by Vaktovian on 2017/10/28 08:06
I never write reviews, that alone should be testament to the fact that I love this app so much. I have so much respect for the creators, it seems like every app nowadays wants to shove an ad down your throat every five seconds. In the good hour I was messing around with it, I didn't see a single one. Several sound packs are free and the ones that aren't are very reasonably priced. It's high quality audio, there's a very handy "tips" page to help you get started, and it's extremely fun making a beat of your own. Five stars, you guys are awesome.
Launch ur sound
by Scamper the partypenguin on 2018/03/17 20:47
This is by far one of the best apps I have come across and is the first music app I have found that fits me. I'm not a cheap person but I would not of purchased anything from an app until I found launchpad, thank you all who put this together I can't wait to see what your next mods will be. One suggestion we'll more fin a hopeful question, a touchpad box for the effects so that your moving inside the box changes the x and y parimter and one or multi tap on a section to hold/release/ set depth or speed.? That would rock as an all in one app with featuring basically a split screen chaos pad,
Freaking amazing
by Wheelchair 413 on 2017/09/05 13:50
I love the iPad version of this application I am a aspiring DJ/Producer myself so the app for the phone is really good for me because I can bring my music with me everywhere I go because I have ideas going through my head constantly so if I'm on the road I can make something up real quick and I can post it to my Soundcloud right then and there which is really good because I'm signed to a record label and if they want something done right away I can do that and email it to them right then and there so this is really really good
Great app good job
by Oshawat on 2018/11/04 14:26
This app is the closest thing most people have to an actual launchpad brilliant job though i have a suggestion since this app ties into blocs wave could you add a feature to blocs wave where you can copy actual launchpad projects made by people like MDK or KASKOBI into blocs wave so people who don’t have enough money to buy a launchpad or the equipment to import the sounds they used can play the projects they have created gonna say once again great job novation hope it’s possible to add the feature that I mentioned keep up the good work
4 Stars because I need this one Feature!

I love this app and it has really helped me shape up my debut album with the sound packs provided. However, the one thing I really wish you’d give is a preview of the pack. Not the song y’all made, but we could click on the sound pack and have the option to listen to the sounds one by one before making the purchase. Sometimes the song y’all made is great but then I buy the pack, and the sounds are all there but majority of them I’ll never use, so that would be great!
Love it but

I love this app. I am not a successful producer, at all, but this app is awesome. The loops and synths are great. I only would like it if you made it free to import sounds. I work with GarageBand to make some of my songs, and I would love to be able to import things I’ve made. I understand you have to make money somehow, but just giving you some feedback. Otherwise, great music app. I’ve made 2 songs using this, and from peoples responses to them, they’re way better than my GarageBand songs, so you beat apple, and that’s an achievement! 👍
I LOVE THIS APP 🔥🔥🔥🔥although one bug

This app is amazing I use it so much because I love to make music. Now their is one big just one just one bug. I have some apps that I like to go to while I’m listening to my recording but when I go into Disney emoji blitz’s (I’m not partnered with jam city) it sounds like the music is on the other side of a football field and just sounds off. So Developers plz change that so I can go into any app without it sounding like that. Yes I play Disney emoji blitz don’t judge me. 💪🏻🔥🔥🔥
please bring the old soundpacks back

I was thinking about getting a soundpack and the next day its gone, i think some of the old one’s are some of the best to, its nice that the store is a little more organized but some of those soundpacks were worth keeping...anyway LOVE the app, i think it deserves a number one spot on the music making apps👍, oh and one more thing, can you make songs made (in the “recordings” part) like a playlist, that we can edit (slide up and down), i dont know why it bothers me but im pretty much OCD
ALMOST there

This really is an excellent app, with great features and new sounds being added regularly. But — and I know I’m odd — I want other time signatures! I’m working on a 5/4 track and really want to be able to use Launchpad for it. I’m using another percussion app for world beat instruments and it does support 5/4, 7/4, etc. But even using Ableton Link and doing math to get the beats to line up, the downbeat is invariably in the wrong place, at least four times out of five. You would be heroes if you could add this as an option!
It just amazing.

I have been a Launchpad user for a few years now. In addition to the other Novation apps, Launchpad continues to be an outlet of musical creation. I do not consider myself professional on any level, however, I can entertain myself and create some great tracks! If you want intuitive, easy to use, and able to import your own sounds and tracks, give it a try! Thank you for continuing to update and bring more sound packs into the mix!
It’s amazing

It is very good and I hope may people get this beat making app because it’s not every day you get to make your own kind of music that you like in your own way. What I’m trying to say is that you own everything on this app and you feel like you can’t break any rules because you make the rules in this app. Make sure no one tells you otherwise or you’ll have very poor decisions in your life, like not getting this app. ;)
Best music
by c_j music2143 on 2019/10/06 13:03
I love this app. It allows you so much diversity in the music and allows you to make awesome tracks. One thing i really love is that you can post the music you create, i post mine on soundcloud. One thing i would like for the creator to change is to make it so while im making the song and recording it that i could say change the volume or number of beats but quickly so it doesn’t mess up the song. But overall besides that one detail i love this app and anyone who is interested in music should get this. :)
It’s fun and cool 😊❤️❤️❤️

I love this app I love making beats and new sounds and I have made some songs with it.I really like this app and if you are doubting this app I know how you feel that is how I was,but trust me in my opinion I really like it but I hope they did not have to make you pay for like textures and very very cool sounds I am not saying it’s over priced but I don’t really want to pay for cool and awesome sounds. So all I am trying to say this is a VERY cool app and you should get it HOPE you ENJOY IT 😊
Expensive!!!
by MichaelRoque on 2020/06/28 18:25
Overall the app is pretty good and well designed but it could use work on its appearance. The only thing that really bugs me is how expensive the sounds are for just a few loops. I think if the sounds were less expensive I would have bought more. The app has a lot of potential and I think it could be one of the superior beat making apps. Also, more synth-wave/ 80’s loops could be more beneficial since that’s the only reason I download this app.
