Editors' Notes

Beautifully presented and intuitively designed, Blocs Wave is an engaging tool for making music. Using simple taps, you can add sounds from a number of genres, and many more are available through In-App Purchases. You can also create unique sounds by manipulating waveforms with your fingertips (which looks as cool as it sounds) and record your own using your device’s microphone.

Even more Disappointed


I really want to use blocks as a progression from launchpad the new feature of exporting projects into launchpad is welcome....BUT IT DOESN'T WORK! Launchpad crashes when you try and open blocks project from within Launchpad but I still don't understand why developers can't understand my gripe. Why can't I play a sample by pressing on it and then press again to stop it. WHY? This issue persists when auditioning samples within a the oval sample containing blocks. Developers please understand the lack of this feature is what makes blocks unintuitive. It appears an easy fix; please allow the pressing of samples to initiate play and stop. I Prefer the timbral sound of blocks to launchpad and I would like to use it but when I try and set up a groove when I'm initially trying find the groove from samples I have selected (the most important organic part of song creation) please fix this. Personally I don't think developers can say they have given blocks a chance. Please enable stop/play on samples and release the potential in blocks

Afraid to update


I use launchpad and blocs as a central part of my studio.

When they work they are amazing apps, but the updates seem to be about selling you features that are not required.

All you need on launchpad and blocs is the import feature and that's it.

The an update to launchpad in Dec stoped the import feature for a week.

Week of productivity lost, for what reason, so you can make it look funky.

Have you seen a real launchpad it's not funky, but it works.

Your iOS app is meant to replicate this device, so why make it look different and kill productivity for a week because you introduced a bug.

If your app was 100% free it be ok, but as you require buying import feature, unstable updates offering features not required is not acceptable.

Now the latest update to blocs offering me an EQ, this is not required, will this update stop launchpad from working?

Not worth the risk of updates. Please only update security issues, not just features created for profit and unwanted visual tweaks making the VR products more removed from there origins.
