It is awesome expect you can only play one in each row which I hate. Also google said, when I was trying to upload a video from this site, it said that I should avoid this app. 😫🤔 but other wise it is awesome
Great app

Thanks to this app I have been able to launch a small YouTube channel (zuba music) 10/10 would recommend this app
I feel confused with the usage of created tracks
by Litvinovs on 2019/12/10 10:56
This app is really cool. I’ve bought Hardware Novation Launchpad X and love it. But I’m a bit confused with the usage of created tracks. I have no clue if I can use it as a background sound for youtube videos or some other cases. I do understand that I cannot sell my tracks but I still can’t get what is the legal form of usage.
Amazing app but with a little bug
by Iyeay on 2019/12/10 01:50
So I was looking at the new soundpacks that came out and I saw that a few were on sale and sounded really good, so I sent him an authorization message and he declined which was a misunderstanding, so I tried to get the sound packs again and it won’t let me repurchase them

Almost perfect
by Bonyo B on 2019/12/05 06:08
The app is very nice and easy tool to create some fast background music for projects. But there is one drawback- cannot save the variations I have made. I would love to be able to keep the instruments playing somehow. Yes I can record and save to wag and aac but I would also like to be able to save the projects itself including the chosen instruments/beats. Also a proper export to Logic X would be nice.
Continue audio when listening to recordings
by v01c3 on 2019/12/05 05:14
Why can’t we listen to our recorded audio without the sleep function on iOS? Can we please listen to our own recordings without the sleep function? I want to listen to my creations in their entirety. Please help!
Very difficult to restore purchases & transfer to new phone
by docrivs on 2019/12/05 01:35
I love Ampify/Focusrite for producing music. I’ve been using it for years! BUT I recently had to upgrade my iPhone due to a cracked screen and I had to use iCloud backup to restore my phone because o don’t have a PC at this time. iCloud backup seemed to work for my Blocs Wave projects and Groovebox projects but not at all for my Launchpad projects. I tried to Restore All of my soundpack purchases. My projects in Blocs Wave are visible but I can’t open them because the app claims that they use sound pack material that hasn’t been restored to my phone in launchpad. However, I believe I have ALL of my soundpack material restored on this phone. So I can’t export my projects into launchpad so that I can perform them and record them and work with them. It’s incredibly frustrating and depressing and defeating. I’m supposed to take my material into the studio in just a couple of weeks and I can’t access it!!! I have not received adequate assistance from Ampify. They should be able to help me get into my projects and restore my purchases but they blame the problem on Apple’s iCloud backup. I’m very disappointed in Ampify’s handling of my request for assistance. I’ve made numerous purchases of soundpack and have been a user for a few years now. I have to give two stars for unsatisfactory customer service. Where would the people who created these products and everyone who makes up Ampify be without their users/customers? I hope that they will do better.
Awesome

Launchpad is the only MIDI app I use.
by mynicknamewastaken2786 on 2019/11/29 15:02
Best MIDI Controller app I have found. I have tested many and this is my favorite. Easy to use, and functional. But could use more technical sounding sound packs, only reason for 4 stars.
drag/rearrange samples?
by odayonight on 2019/11/26 15:17
Love this app! But a HUGE improvement would be the ability to drag and rearrange imported clips and samples. Would save so much time. Possible?
Great App
by gjsdgnbn on 2019/11/25 09:12
I love this app but why did you take away the volume button. That was my killswitch. I would fade it out. Unless there is another way that I don’t know about! I love the beats, melodies that you have created.
BEST THING EVER

This is how I Dj Launchpad was born+kit requests
by Neptune And Msufan on 2019/11/13 12:58
Believe it or not, some of my special ID’s in my mixes from high school and some of my tracks released on audiomack and new grounds as well as my dj name were born from this very app, while there’s five stars from me, one criticism I have is that sound packs like PsyTrance and the 150 bpm hardstyle Kit were removed. But with that said I have some ideas and INFACT requests for more kits. And spoiler alert: should they be made a reality, all these kits I want under the free section. Request 1: HARD TRANCE Bpm: 138-140 Types of sounds to include: the same drum kits that artists like cosmic gate (from mental atmosphere to the Cosmic Gate Remix of Sioux- Pho ), Renagade system, Indecent Noise, Amy artist from Bryan Kearney’s Kearnage label (especially Bryan kearney’s Kearnage Alias), Will Atkinson, Sneidjer , organ Donors, CJ Stone (from their remix of the track pretty green eyes by Ultrabeat) Max Walder, John O Callaghan, Key4050 and S.H.O.K.K and melodies and bass that match that of Mark Norman, and Darren Porter and Aly And Fila and Sean Tyas and Jordan Suckley. Request 2: New Hardstyle Bpm: 148-150 (sorta like the 150 hardstyle pack that was deleted.) Types of sounds: unlike the 135 bpm kit, this kit will have the sound of hardstyle we have today, which include, kick and reverse bass from high voltage’s tracks from 2002 (bombs away), to modern reverse bass tracks from hardwell and Showtek. But let’s not forget the special Nu and rawstyle track kits that were invented in 2010 by Zatox, Tatanka and Noisecontrollers and perfected in late 2011 and finalized in 2012 by today’s Hardstyle artists like The Prophet, Headhunterz, Atmozfears, Refuzion, Minus Militia, Da Tweekaz, Rob Mayth (refer to the track Hard core Vibes by Rob Mayth and DJ Neo), Crypsis, and DJ Isaac b2b TNT. And my final request to you is to bring the psytrance kit back but include one sample, something that goes like “The beat just goes straight on and on, UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ...” That’s all for now.

Songs are a bit similar, but vary enuff to keep my fans satisfied and begging for more. Fedtastic transitions, with basic ideals proves Launchpad is more better than u.
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!!!
iOS Launchpad Learning is Lovely
by SurrealKilla on 2019/11/09 03:13
I love this app so much. When you are riding in vehicle and your equipment is all packed up and you have hours of travel to reach your destination, and even if it’s a fifteen minute drive to get there. Launchpad is awesome way to make it go by quickly. And its fun coming up with new mixes for your favorite sound packs..
Love It
by TheFirstPugPug on 2019/11/08 03:43

Super fun app but has a glitch with add on purchases
by hmw1.1 on 2019/11/06 20:07
I love this app and it makes it easy to be creative. I just purchased the add on where I can remix my own songs and it doesn’t seem to be working. There seems to be a glitch where I have to enter tempo/beats. Please help!
Endlessly interesting
by Sunfell1 on 2019/11/06 19:25
I have been a fan of this software since its iPad only days. Each iteration gets better and better. It’s like having a Launchpad in your pocket. The audio quality of the sound packs is excellent.

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!
If you don’t use This app
by The Real WiN on 2019/10/26 07:43
Your probably not relevant. Just kidding. Ableton ™️is just what the pros use. LAUNCHPAD ™️ is the “Go-To” DMP for serious musicians

by jhammonovich on 2019/10/25 01:42
A decent pair of Noise canceling headphones, and the other 2 novation apps of this suite and you can really get submerged deep into a creative space. Great for starting ideas and easy to get to your computer to really build things out.

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 the app but I have one question
by djstipes21 on 2019/10/16 12:41

Needs more to choose from.
by trev infinite on 2019/10/11 01:41
I’ve had this app for almost 5 years and ever since I owned it, I realized they need more sound pack genres. Ampify!!! Add more hard dance packs, electro, tropical. Add sound packs people wanna buy!!!!

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. :)

Love it, but suggestion
by Shaddow Storm on 2019/10/03 02:46
You should add a button to switch “pages” during live play, like the real launchpad. If I could change from one set to another it would help a lot with live performance issues. Just an idea, I love the program, and I’m a big fan of your live instruments as well!
Simply awesome.

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.

I love this app, however, I opened it during rehearsal yesterday and when it started loading the samples it crashed. Tried everything I know to do outside of deleting the app as I didn't want to lose all of my samples and have to reload those. Please help! I'm about to head out on tour, and I use the Launchpad app to run my samples. Thank you.

by persontdwtgn on 2019/08/30 16:05
This app is great and I definitely recommend it to anybody new to making beats, like myself. This app is a whole lot of fun. My one problem is that I wish there was a way to work up to a sound pack and get it for free. For example: everyday that you use the app and create a beat you should be awarded one token. Then you can save up and buy a sound pack that costs 20 coins, or you can use the coins to get a discount on the sound pack. Just a suggestion. However there are some free sound packs that you can use if you don’t have money.
Awesome with one bug
by Joe Solo Producer on 2019/06/08 14:36
let’s get the bug out-of-the-way and then I’ll tell you how awesome this app is. For some reason the background audio setting doesn’t work. That’s pretty frustrating because when listening back to the finish song very often before you get too far the phone going to standby mode and kill this song to play. Backgroung Audio worked before Launchpad had a big makeover. now for the good stuff: Launchpad is so well laid out and sound so good that I could actually make EDM based Record is just about anywhere I am calling in line at the bank, chilling in bed, driving across LA at Cetera at Cetera it misses your song for you so what I do is I’ll do five or six versions from the same sound sad then export them to my full studio and edit the best pieces together to come up with the final version ready for Mastering. and the mixes do you need Mastering as a fine they’re a bit harsh in the high-end, mostly due to symbols and high hats. But creating songs is just so darn easy and fast in Launchpad it is an instant dispensable tool in my arsenal of tools and considering that it just cost a couple bucks to buy gives you free sound sets to begin with and then offer is a huge smorgasbord of other sound sets to load, including the ability to import your own samples, this is one app That you’ll find extremely useful.

• 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!
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
Cornerstone
by ...::mybffs4evr::... on 2019/09/28 14:02
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.
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.
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! 🎶
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Background Audio not working :(
by brass08420monkey on 2019/05/22 18:52
Hey this app is impeccable in delivering the best music making experience with pre-recorded sound loops and everything an aspiring DJ needs to kickstart their career. Up until recently, I could switch between apps & even lock my phone with the songs I made playing in the background...after this last update- this feature is either not working for me personally or you guys might’be did awAy with it altogether. Whatever the case, could you please bring it back? I will give 5stars if you could do that for me. Thank you!
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.
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
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,
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
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! 👍
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
Give us back the labels
by Lancia037 on 2017/12/21 06:25
Edit: Labels are back! Great job listening to the customers! Sincere thx! Great app, nice update, but... With the labels missing on the buttons, it became extremely difficult to remember which button gives what sound. There is some color coding, but that is just not enough! I would have given 1 star, since this makes the app close to impossible to use for me, but knowing how good it was before the update, I couldn't bring myself to score low.
Excellent
by D34to on 2019/03/20 14:26
This app is one of the very best made apps ever made for IPhone and iPad: both as a music app that offers all kinds of possibilities, AND as a well-constructed app compared to any app of any kind in the entire Apple App Store. The makers of this app have created thousands of sound loops that are expertly balanced with each other, as if the best studio engineers are working invisibly in your phone or iPad. Tons of fun and options: enough to be able to put your own personal imprint on the tunes you make.
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!
Quick question 🧐✅
by JJ and JV on 2019/03/30 03:42
I have been using this Launchpad for a while now, and I absolutely love it. Now, I have one question, it’s sort of a request. Yet I don’t know if the program itself would be able to have a voice recorder in an option in settings. I don’t want to pressure anything, knowing adding that might take some time and money. But just to let you know and ask. Thank you for all your hard work on this successful music 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 😊
I Love this app!
by EDGABA on 2018/08/03 06:09
This app works great, specially with the import feature, I'm using it a lot, I do have a feature request, as you make your own projects they can add up, and there seems to be no way to back them up from the app. So that they can be restored on another iPad. So a project backup and restore feature would be most welcome. Thank you for the great job you're doing :-) ****** Asking for a feature on a future update, the ability to import MP3
Make your own music!
by UltraManReview on 2017/12/01 06:08
Sometimes you just can’t find the music you’re looking for. So why not just make your own. This is great for people like me who want to produce unique tracks but can’t because of all the technical training or money for equipment. This is a way to help find your own sound based on existing samples. I’ve been playing on this for hours and love it. Can’t wait to share some tracks with friends soon. Strictly hobby.
One small error.
by SkullBass101 on 2018/05/22 00:02
I love this app I’ve been using it for about 2 years now and it is amazing but I tried sharing one of my songs on Instagram and it stopped when i was about to upload it, I don’t know if this is a problem for launchpad or Instagram but I’ll leave a comment for Instagram to. Also if this app is really amazing and with this apps simple and easy audio import the possibilities are LITERALLY ENDLESS!!!!! Love this app though!😁 keep up the great work!
Issue with new update
by bpcraig on 2017/12/11 06:00
First off love the app, very powerful! Maybe I’m just doing some wrong but now with the new update any project I try to export from blocs doesn’t load at all. Launch pad will try to load then it crashes. Note: I have recently updated both apps and this seems to be when the trouble started. If you guys could look into this as I use that export feature almost exclusively Regardless, both apps let you make very dense and tight tracks and I am having a lot of fun with both
Great App But....
by JWygant on 2017/11/08 02:05
This is a great app and fun but that is all it is fun, it has absolutely 0 production value and NONE of the features of the physical units which you would expect see in an app such as this, especially with it being named exactly the same, but so far as I can tell, you cannot connect it as a MIDI device to your DAW, nor assign samples to the pads to trigger sounds in the DAW, or anything else you would think that it would as a launchpad. In the end this app does a good job of mimicking the real thing, and the sounds included are decent, but this is definitely not what it appears to be.
Great App!!!!! Would recommend!
by Infarno on 2018/02/15 14:06
I love the smoothness of the sound and just everything about the app itself, this app has helped me get farther and have a sense of better sounds for my Bachelors in Music Production. I just wish it could have a point or game currency instead of pay-to-play type of thing, and had more packs and ones that are made for EXACTLY one genre instead of it kind of being mixed, but nonetheless, great app mad by great developers!
Absolutely LOVE Launchpad—10 Stars!❤️
by BAR112 on 2018/08/10 17:06
Although I haven’t tried using it with other apps nor importing loops yet, it’s so much fun to create beautiful, spur-of-the moment music! Everything I touch sounds so professional—can’t mess up! Don’t understand all the complaints about “labels”—each sound is conveniently listed on it’s appropriate key and the genre is listed in the Project drop-down list. What a treat to be able to create my OWN music, for dance, DJ, whatever!
Will kill your battery (UPDATED)
by N1TR0GLYCYR1N on 2018/01/30 18:36
EDIT: Thanks for the response. I realize now the error is on my part and I apologise for the review. Gonna leave my original up in case anyone runs into the same issue 🤪 (ORIGINAL) Make sure you kill the app when youre done, or it will eat most of your battery in about half a day. Battery usage was at 53% for this one app from the time I unplugged (8ish) to right after I finished work (3pm). NOT ok!!!
Port the V-Station software synthesizer to the iPad!
by Goldenanalog on 2019/01/19 16:38
It really is a no-brainer request - V-Station is positively brilliant - we’ve been just talking about it again on KVR (it still gets attention after 15 years - it still has a few bugs that need to be squashed, too!) You guys just did a patch on it this past October bringing it up to ver 2.6, so you’re still at least marginally supporting it. Honestly: what’s keeping you from porting it to the iPad?
Awesome app read my review
by Dj darki on 2018/08/10 06:22
Well i am using this app around 5 even could be 6 years . You can greatly make your own music by this awefull app because you will have nice sample's that its connect together by automaticly cync . You guys know everywere have bad and goods but this app just have one bad part , that you have to pay money if you want to have more sample . I am djdarki that you guys can find me in instagram . Take care ❤️❤️❤️
Nice Toy
by naturecollision on 2018/11/21 17:15
unfortunately no manual and specs to be found, Pros probably not the target group of the devs, audio glitches with my loops that work perfectly in logic, cubase and pro tools. of course I paid for the audio import feature, but glitches in loops? not acceptable. now I would love an explanation why this happens, maybe a sample/bitrate issue, I use 48/24 throughout all my audio, my loops don‘t necessarily end at zero crossings, why should they, it‘s live piano. so, no info anywhere, no contac/support on website, three stars cause I‘m generous. how about a refund?
Recording artist master audio engineer
by Wolfbanging on 2017/10/15 10:06
extremely easy to set up compared to the big ones I think I like this actually better because it actually sounds better works a lot easier very user-friendly and very easy to understand once you figure out where you were running up to the sound sound of generalized them in groups and mission preview
Good, but....
by QuickSilver Lopez on 2018/02/13 23:20
I’ve had the app for years now. I have always enjoyed it, however now that I got back on it after such a long time. I noticed that they removed the titles for each section that identify what each section of each pack is. So I don’t even know what I’m using at all except for the colors and rows that separates them from each other. Other than that, there is nothing to help tell them apart or know exactly which section does what.
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.
Days lost
by TrueCue on 2017/12/08 05:26
This app is SO addictive... SO ADDICTIVE!! I just happened upon this app while in the Apple store, thought it seemed cool so I downloaded it. Since then I have found myself making time to spend “creating music” here. I never thought I would even be into such a thing, now I find myself lost in being creative. Hope it could bring any reader of this review half the joy it has brought me. ✌🏾

It's impossible for me to sit down, shut up, and learn. If learning was School Oriented or Music Oriented, I had soooooo much trouble with it. Even tho I was considered talented, I felt stuck and became depressed knowing I had the ears of a Fully Loaded Musician that could play anything. Launchpad made the usage of my Musical Ears easy to use and I'm proud to create track with this App and call myself BruhMonJee. 5 Stars ✨ - BruhMonJee (Gamer - Entertainer - Reviewer - SoundCloud)
Soundpacks Removed or Changed
by MassaDasha on 2019/07/25 18:44
I have had this app for about 4 years and love it because it was my entrance into making music. However, it upsets me that sound-packs I purchased for particular sounds no longer have those sounds as well as sound packs I've purchase no longer be there, packs that were downloaded onto my ipad but now are no longer there. None of the sound-packs (aside from the artist specific ones) are the same. I have purchased a-lot of packs on here just to find only about 2/3 are still available.

It is awesome expect you can only play one in each row which I hate. Also google said, when I was trying to upload a video from this site, it said that I should avoid this app. 😫🤔 but other wise it is awesome
Great app
by zubamusic on 2019/12/10 21:45
Thanks to this app I have been able to launch a small YouTube channel (zuba music) 10/10 would recommend this app
I feel confused with the usage of created tracks
by Litvinovs on 2019/12/10 10:56
This app is really cool. I’ve bought Hardware Novation Launchpad X and love it. But I’m a bit confused with the usage of created tracks. I have no clue if I can use it as a background sound for youtube videos or some other cases. I do understand that I cannot sell my tracks but I still can’t get what is the legal form of usage.
Amazing app but with a little bug
by Iyeay on 2019/12/10 01:50
So I was looking at the new soundpacks that came out and I saw that a few were on sale and sounded really good, so I sent him an authorization message and he declined which was a misunderstanding, so I tried to get the sound packs again and it won’t let me repurchase them
Amazzzzzzzzing

It works so good, even my elementary school uses it! You record music that you make, and post it or share your music! Marshmello uses it for his music also 👍five star
Cool program
by Marishh_h on 2019/12/05 14:31
I like it
Almost perfect
by Bonyo B on 2019/12/05 06:08
The app is very nice and easy tool to create some fast background music for projects. But there is one drawback- cannot save the variations I have made. I would love to be able to keep the instruments playing somehow. Yes I can record and save to wag and aac but I would also like to be able to save the projects itself including the chosen instruments/beats. Also a proper export to Logic X would be nice.
Continue audio when listening to recordings
by v01c3 on 2019/12/05 05:14
Why can’t we listen to our recorded audio without the sleep function on iOS? Can we please listen to our own recordings without the sleep function? I want to listen to my creations in their entirety. Please help!
Very difficult to restore purchases & transfer to new phone
by docrivs on 2019/12/05 01:35
I love Ampify/Focusrite for producing music. I’ve been using it for years! BUT I recently had to upgrade my iPhone due to a cracked screen and I had to use iCloud backup to restore my phone because o don’t have a PC at this time. iCloud backup seemed to work for my Blocs Wave projects and Groovebox projects but not at all for my Launchpad projects. I tried to Restore All of my soundpack purchases. My projects in Blocs Wave are visible but I can’t open them because the app claims that they use sound pack material that hasn’t been restored to my phone in launchpad. However, I believe I have ALL of my soundpack material restored on this phone. So I can’t export my projects into launchpad so that I can perform them and record them and work with them. It’s incredibly frustrating and depressing and defeating. I’m supposed to take my material into the studio in just a couple of weeks and I can’t access it!!! I have not received adequate assistance from Ampify. They should be able to help me get into my projects and restore my purchases but they blame the problem on Apple’s iCloud backup. I’m very disappointed in Ampify’s handling of my request for assistance. I’ve made numerous purchases of soundpack and have been a user for a few years now. I have to give two stars for unsatisfactory customer service. Where would the people who created these products and everyone who makes up Ampify be without their users/customers? I hope that they will do better.
Awesome
by fjjsjsmsak on 2019/12/04 21:16
I love it and it is awesome and fun to play on the go like in a car or on a long ride!

Launchpad is the only MIDI app I use.
by mynicknamewastaken2786 on 2019/11/29 15:02
Best MIDI Controller app I have found. I have tested many and this is my favorite. Easy to use, and functional. But could use more technical sounding sound packs, only reason for 4 stars.
drag/rearrange samples?
by odayonight on 2019/11/26 15:17
Love this app! But a HUGE improvement would be the ability to drag and rearrange imported clips and samples. Would save so much time. Possible?
Great App
by gjsdgnbn on 2019/11/25 09:12
I love this app but why did you take away the volume button. That was my killswitch. I would fade it out. Unless there is another way that I don’t know about! I love the beats, melodies that you have created.
BEST THING EVER
by Snowhound 10 on 2019/11/24 00:01
Omigod this app is great but I think it should have more bundles like ULTRA EDM! I LOVE IT and other ampify music apps

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.

I’m in love!
by Samariah12345 on 2019/11/17 04:03
no glitches, no ads, no forced payments! It’s perfect and I can make great beats. It is very easy for beginners (like me).

This is how I Dj Launchpad was born+kit requests
by Neptune And Msufan on 2019/11/13 12:58
Believe it or not, some of my special ID’s in my mixes from high school and some of my tracks released on audiomack and new grounds as well as my dj name were born from this very app, while there’s five stars from me, one criticism I have is that sound packs like PsyTrance and the 150 bpm hardstyle Kit were removed. But with that said I have some ideas and INFACT requests for more kits. And spoiler alert: should they be made a reality, all these kits I want under the free section. Request 1: HARD TRANCE Bpm: 138-140 Types of sounds to include: the same drum kits that artists like cosmic gate (from mental atmosphere to the Cosmic Gate Remix of Sioux- Pho ), Renagade system, Indecent Noise, Amy artist from Bryan Kearney’s Kearnage label (especially Bryan kearney’s Kearnage Alias), Will Atkinson, Sneidjer , organ Donors, CJ Stone (from their remix of the track pretty green eyes by Ultrabeat) Max Walder, John O Callaghan, Key4050 and S.H.O.K.K and melodies and bass that match that of Mark Norman, and Darren Porter and Aly And Fila and Sean Tyas and Jordan Suckley. Request 2: New Hardstyle Bpm: 148-150 (sorta like the 150 hardstyle pack that was deleted.) Types of sounds: unlike the 135 bpm kit, this kit will have the sound of hardstyle we have today, which include, kick and reverse bass from high voltage’s tracks from 2002 (bombs away), to modern reverse bass tracks from hardwell and Showtek. But let’s not forget the special Nu and rawstyle track kits that were invented in 2010 by Zatox, Tatanka and Noisecontrollers and perfected in late 2011 and finalized in 2012 by today’s Hardstyle artists like The Prophet, Headhunterz, Atmozfears, Refuzion, Minus Militia, Da Tweekaz, Rob Mayth (refer to the track Hard core Vibes by Rob Mayth and DJ Neo), Crypsis, and DJ Isaac b2b TNT. And my final request to you is to bring the psytrance kit back but include one sample, something that goes like “The beat just goes straight on and on, UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ...” That’s all for now.

Songs are a bit similar, but vary enuff to keep my fans satisfied and begging for more. Fedtastic transitions, with basic ideals proves Launchpad is more better than u.
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!!!
iOS Launchpad Learning is Lovely
by SurrealKilla on 2019/11/09 03:13
I love this app so much. When you are riding in vehicle and your equipment is all packed up and you have hours of travel to reach your destination, and even if it’s a fifteen minute drive to get there. Launchpad is awesome way to make it go by quickly. And its fun coming up with new mixes for your favorite sound packs..
Love It
by TheFirstPugPug on 2019/11/08 03:43
I think it is so fun that I just want to play it all night! It is so addicting!
Super fun app but has a glitch with add on purchases
by hmw1.1 on 2019/11/06 20:07
I love this app and it makes it easy to be creative. I just purchased the add on where I can remix my own songs and it doesn’t seem to be working. There seems to be a glitch where I have to enter tempo/beats. Please help!
Endlessly interesting
by Sunfell1 on 2019/11/06 19:25
I have been a fan of this software since its iPad only days. Each iteration gets better and better. It’s like having a Launchpad in your pocket. The audio quality of the sound packs is excellent.

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!
If you don’t use This app
by The Real WiN on 2019/10/26 07:43
Your probably not relevant. Just kidding. Ableton ™️is just what the pros use. LAUNCHPAD ™️ is the “Go-To” DMP for serious musicians
This app is so fun, plane flights have never gone so fast
by jhammonovich on 2019/10/25 01:42
A decent pair of Noise canceling headphones, and the other 2 novation apps of this suite and you can really get submerged deep into a creative space. Great for starting ideas and easy to get to your computer to really build things out.
Love it
by #Beesbacon on 2019/10/24 05:08
Love this app, fun easy to make small beats/ tracks. I love music so much but this is one of my first time using an app/software.

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 the app but I have one question
by djstipes21 on 2019/10/16 12:41
I have an older launchpad mini and I was wonder if I could connect it to the app like with super lights

Great and intuitive apps.

I love this apps, it makes it so easily to manipulate and arrange sounds according to genre, love the library also, hopefully they keep on adding more functionality to it, I am more than satisfy with it.
Needs more to choose from.
by trev infinite on 2019/10/11 01:41
I’ve had this app for almost 5 years and ever since I owned it, I realized they need more sound pack genres. Ampify!!! Add more hard dance packs, electro, tropical. Add sound packs people wanna buy!!!!
Great time

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. :)

by Rhmachote on 2019/10/04 00:23
Simply nice to jam with. Dont need to be a musician to create music from sound paks. Fun alone or jam with others using ableton link and stay on same sheet of music rythm
Love it, but suggestion
by Shaddow Storm on 2019/10/03 02:46
You should add a button to switch “pages” during live play, like the real launchpad. If I could change from one set to another it would help a lot with live performance issues. Just an idea, I love the program, and I’m a big fan of your live instruments as well!
Simply awesome.

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.

I love this app! I created a 6 minute song, and it was so great!! I love this app and it helps me make music like a pro, without being pro! I know nothing about launchpads either!! This app is so amazing, if I find any bugs of course I’ll report them to you, but it’s so great! Thank you for making this app, keep up the great work! Can’t wait for the next update.
App is Crashing when I open it
by CornflowerMusic on 2019/09/09 02:21
I love this app, however, I opened it during rehearsal yesterday and when it started loading the samples it crashed. Tried everything I know to do outside of deleting the app as I didn't want to lose all of my samples and have to reload those. Please help! I'm about to head out on tour, and I use the Launchpad app to run my samples. Thank you.
ok

My beats have improved, but...
by persontdwtgn on 2019/08/30 16:05
This app is great and I definitely recommend it to anybody new to making beats, like myself. This app is a whole lot of fun. My one problem is that I wish there was a way to work up to a sound pack and get it for free. For example: everyday that you use the app and create a beat you should be awarded one token. Then you can save up and buy a sound pack that costs 20 coins, or you can use the coins to get a discount on the sound pack. Just a suggestion. However there are some free sound packs that you can use if you don’t have money.
Awesome with one bug
by Joe Solo Producer on 2019/06/08 14:36
let’s get the bug out-of-the-way and then I’ll tell you how awesome this app is. For some reason the background audio setting doesn’t work. That’s pretty frustrating because when listening back to the finish song very often before you get too far the phone going to standby mode and kill this song to play. Backgroung Audio worked before Launchpad had a big makeover. now for the good stuff: Launchpad is so well laid out and sound so good that I could actually make EDM based Record is just about anywhere I am calling in line at the bank, chilling in bed, driving across LA at Cetera at Cetera it misses your song for you so what I do is I’ll do five or six versions from the same sound sad then export them to my full studio and edit the best pieces together to come up with the final version ready for Mastering. and the mixes do you need Mastering as a fine they’re a bit harsh in the high-end, mostly due to symbols and high hats. But creating songs is just so darn easy and fast in Launchpad it is an instant dispensable tool in my arsenal of tools and considering that it just cost a couple bucks to buy gives you free sound sets to begin with and then offer is a huge smorgasbord of other sound sets to load, including the ability to import your own samples, this is one app That you’ll find extremely useful.

• 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!
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.

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.
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! 🎶
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Background Audio not working :(
by brass08420monkey on 2019/05/22 18:52
Hey this app is impeccable in delivering the best music making experience with pre-recorded sound loops and everything an aspiring DJ needs to kickstart their career. Up until recently, I could switch between apps & even lock my phone with the songs I made playing in the background...after this last update- this feature is either not working for me personally or you guys might’be did awAy with it altogether. Whatever the case, could you please bring it back? I will give 5stars if you could do that for me. Thank you!
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.
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
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,
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
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! 👍
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
Give us back the labels
by Lancia037 on 2017/12/21 06:25
Edit: Labels are back! Great job listening to the customers! Sincere thx! Great app, nice update, but... With the labels missing on the buttons, it became extremely difficult to remember which button gives what sound. There is some color coding, but that is just not enough! I would have given 1 star, since this makes the app close to impossible to use for me, but knowing how good it was before the update, I couldn't bring myself to score low.
Excellent
by D34to on 2019/03/20 14:26
This app is one of the very best made apps ever made for IPhone and iPad: both as a music app that offers all kinds of possibilities, AND as a well-constructed app compared to any app of any kind in the entire Apple App Store. The makers of this app have created thousands of sound loops that are expertly balanced with each other, as if the best studio engineers are working invisibly in your phone or iPad. Tons of fun and options: enough to be able to put your own personal imprint on the tunes you make.
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!
Quick question 🧐✅
by JJ and JV on 2019/03/30 03:42
I have been using this Launchpad for a while now, and I absolutely love it. Now, I have one question, it’s sort of a request. Yet I don’t know if the program itself would be able to have a voice recorder in an option in settings. I don’t want to pressure anything, knowing adding that might take some time and money. But just to let you know and ask. Thank you for all your hard work on this successful music 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 😊
I Love this app!
by EDGABA on 2018/08/03 06:09
This app works great, specially with the import feature, I'm using it a lot, I do have a feature request, as you make your own projects they can add up, and there seems to be no way to back them up from the app. So that they can be restored on another iPad. So a project backup and restore feature would be most welcome. Thank you for the great job you're doing :-) ****** Asking for a feature on a future update, the ability to import MP3
Make your own music!
by UltraManReview on 2017/12/01 06:08
Sometimes you just can’t find the music you’re looking for. So why not just make your own. This is great for people like me who want to produce unique tracks but can’t because of all the technical training or money for equipment. This is a way to help find your own sound based on existing samples. I’ve been playing on this for hours and love it. Can’t wait to share some tracks with friends soon. Strictly hobby.
One small error.
by SkullBass101 on 2018/05/22 00:02
I love this app I’ve been using it for about 2 years now and it is amazing but I tried sharing one of my songs on Instagram and it stopped when i was about to upload it, I don’t know if this is a problem for launchpad or Instagram but I’ll leave a comment for Instagram to. Also if this app is really amazing and with this apps simple and easy audio import the possibilities are LITERALLY ENDLESS!!!!! Love this app though!😁 keep up the great work!
Issue with new update
by bpcraig on 2017/12/11 06:00
First off love the app, very powerful! Maybe I’m just doing some wrong but now with the new update any project I try to export from blocs doesn’t load at all. Launch pad will try to load then it crashes. Note: I have recently updated both apps and this seems to be when the trouble started. If you guys could look into this as I use that export feature almost exclusively Regardless, both apps let you make very dense and tight tracks and I am having a lot of fun with both
Great App But....
by JWygant on 2017/11/08 02:05
This is a great app and fun but that is all it is fun, it has absolutely 0 production value and NONE of the features of the physical units which you would expect see in an app such as this, especially with it being named exactly the same, but so far as I can tell, you cannot connect it as a MIDI device to your DAW, nor assign samples to the pads to trigger sounds in the DAW, or anything else you would think that it would as a launchpad. In the end this app does a good job of mimicking the real thing, and the sounds included are decent, but this is definitely not what it appears to be.
Great App!!!!! Would recommend!

I love the smoothness of the sound and just everything about the app itself, this app has helped me get farther and have a sense of better sounds for my Bachelors in Music Production. I just wish it could have a point or game currency instead of pay-to-play type of thing, and had more packs and ones that are made for EXACTLY one genre instead of it kind of being mixed, but nonetheless, great app mad by great developers!
Absolutely LOVE Launchpad—10 Stars!❤️

Although I haven’t tried using it with other apps nor importing loops yet, it’s so much fun to create beautiful, spur-of-the moment music! Everything I touch sounds so professional—can’t mess up! Don’t understand all the complaints about “labels”—each sound is conveniently listed on it’s appropriate key and the genre is listed in the Project drop-down list. What a treat to be able to create my OWN music, for dance, DJ, whatever!
Will kill your battery (UPDATED)
by N1TR0GLYCYR1N on 2018/01/30 18:36
EDIT: Thanks for the response. I realize now the error is on my part and I apologise for the review. Gonna leave my original up in case anyone runs into the same issue 🤪 (ORIGINAL) Make sure you kill the app when youre done, or it will eat most of your battery in about half a day. Battery usage was at 53% for this one app from the time I unplugged (8ish) to right after I finished work (3pm). NOT ok!!!
Port the V-Station software synthesizer to the iPad!
by Goldenanalog on 2019/01/19 16:38
It really is a no-brainer request - V-Station is positively brilliant - we’ve been just talking about it again on KVR (it still gets attention after 15 years - it still has a few bugs that need to be squashed, too!) You guys just did a patch on it this past October bringing it up to ver 2.6, so you’re still at least marginally supporting it. Honestly: what’s keeping you from porting it to the iPad?
Awesome app read my review
by Dj darki on 2018/08/10 06:22

Nice Toy

unfortunately no manual and specs to be found, Pros probably not the target group of the devs, audio glitches with my loops that work perfectly in logic, cubase and pro tools. of course I paid for the audio import feature, but glitches in loops? not acceptable. now I would love an explanation why this happens, maybe a sample/bitrate issue, I use 48/24 throughout all my audio, my loops don‘t necessarily end at zero crossings, why should they, it‘s live piano. so, no info anywhere, no contac/support on website, three stars cause I‘m generous. how about a refund?

extremely easy to set up compared to the big ones I think I like this actually better because it actually sounds better works a lot easier very user-friendly and very easy to understand once you figure out where you were running up to the sound sound of generalized them in groups and mission preview
Good, but....
by QuickSilver Lopez on 2018/02/13 23:20
I’ve had the app for years now. I have always enjoyed it, however now that I got back on it after such a long time. I noticed that they removed the titles for each section that identify what each section of each pack is. So I don’t even know what I’m using at all except for the colors and rows that separates them from each other. Other than that, there is nothing to help tell them apart or know exactly which section does what.
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.
Days lost
by TrueCue on 2017/12/08 05:26
This app is SO addictive... SO ADDICTIVE!! I just happened upon this app while in the Apple store, thought it seemed cool so I downloaded it. Since then I have found myself making time to spend “creating music” here. I never thought I would even be into such a thing, now I find myself lost in being creative. Hope it could bring any reader of this review half the joy it has brought me. ✌🏾
I'm Proud to be BruhMonJee
by BruhMonJee on 2017/11/08 03:04
It's impossible for me to sit down, shut up, and learn. If learning was School Oriented or Music Oriented, I had soooooo much trouble with it. Even tho I was considered talented, I felt stuck and became depressed knowing I had the ears of a Fully Loaded Musician that could play anything. Launchpad made the usage of my Musical Ears easy to use and I'm proud to create track with this App and call myself BruhMonJee. 5 Stars ✨ - BruhMonJee (Gamer - Entertainer - Reviewer - SoundCloud)
Soundpacks Removed or Changed
by MassaDasha on 2019/07/25 18:44
I have had this app for about 4 years and love it because it was my entrance into making music. However, it upsets me that sound-packs I purchased for particular sounds no longer have those sounds as well as sound packs I've purchase no longer be there, packs that were downloaded onto my ipad but now are no longer there. None of the sound-packs (aside from the artist specific ones) are the same. I have purchased a-lot of packs on here just to find only about 2/3 are still available.
