Amazing app, can’t import...

I love this app. It’s so much fun to mess around with but a while ago I purchased the audio import and was very pleased that I could import sounds from other apps. I recently got a new iPad for Christmas and stopped using my parents Apple ID and got my own. I have family sharing so that I get all my old purchases but when I re-downloaded launchpad it didn’t have audio import, so I logged back into my mum’s account and deleted and downloaded launchpad again and the import was unlocked. So I went to sign back into my account and it was still there, so far so good. I later went to buy a soundpack I really liked and it asked me to sign in to the App Store. So after I did that I couldn’t use audio import any more. I don’t want to have to pay $10 again so is there any way to fix this?
Thanks, Charlie

Simply Brilliant

I was hooked the first time l downloaded it and l have not wavered regarding those initial feelings ever since.

The updates and tweaks over the years were introduced to us “end users” of this app, with a seamless integration which meant the benefits these updates brought with them, were able to be enjoyed and used to enhance something we were already doing on the previous platform and the effect was immediate.

Simply put, l never felt the need nor was l required, to spend hours or even days re-training myself on how to use the app.

No such drama with this one..! Wish l could rate it higher than just five stars.

I have mixed samples from years ago on this app and play them every now and then. It stills feel great to see people genuinely yet pleasantly surprised, when they learn it was one of my creations.

Now that’s kicking a the creators off this app, all l can say is, keep creating guys, cause these sort of achievements are only spawned by and with, passion.

never has been travelling to school been so much fun for my Kids. Each child has an absolute hoot making music to groove whilst being stuck in traffic. Also so good for my love of music making now I can music for my drone videos. I love it

Can we please have a COUNTER at the top of the screen so I can see how long my music is playing for AND or recording for. A lot of my time is spent making music and having a ball and then realising that I’ve been going for 6 minutes to long on a track.

Thanks for an amazing APP guys
