  • They removed all effects on this update!

    By Skychant
    Is it just me or did Novation remove all the included FX and are now charging $14.99 for them as an in-app purchase? Why is this not mentioned on the update description? Misleading advertising. I downloaded this app when they were charging for it, I should not have to repurchase the FX that I once had.
  • Great App!! 👍🏻

    The launchpad app gave me better sounds and magnificent bass. It’s the app that every starting musician needs and the best part is, is that it’s free. I would recommend this app to anyone who loves creating music or is just starting out. The app allowed me to use the launchpad with it and has helped me create my music in a stylish yet exhilarating. There is a reason that this app is the greatest music producer there is.
  • Extremely fun, extremely bad for your battery

    By marcopperman
    I’m showing that this app has used a lot of battery in the background - 59% over the last 24 hrs. I haven’t had the app in the foreground in many days, yet was seeing my iPhone 8+ battery down to 40% by 10 am. Not good.

    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!
  • The best apps ever!!!!

    By JuzWright

    My 6 years old son loves this and whats inspires him in music.
  • Overall good app.

    By Whizdom66
    Used for a couple years now. The Added key change feature just what I needed.......but recording on the app needs to be in 24 bit. i keep getting random clicks and hiccups in my recordings. Other than that overall good app .
