Want to make and remix music?
The Novation Launchpad is an easy-to-use app for iPad and iPhone that will have you making beats and music instantly.
"...literally one of the most fun things I’ve messed around with in a long time..." - Sonic Scoop
The app boasts eight ready-to-perform sessions that span a range of different musical genres, and features regular new content via In-App Purchase. Built-in time stretching and synchronisation always keeps you locked into the beat — so your loops never go out of time. Record and share your performances via Soundcloud, Dropbox, AudioCopy and email. Route your sounds to an Audiobus-compatible app for further tweaking!
The app follows some of the key features of the renowned Launchpad hardware — now used by many of the world’s most famous DJs, producers and performers — while bringing a whole new level of simplicity and fun.
On iPad, intuitive repeater and filter effects add fun ways to make a unique and innovative performance. Create your own sessions and remixes by browsing the categories, packs and favourites of the Launchpad sound library. For power users, Audio Import (available via In-App Purchase) allows you to import your own loops and sounds into Launchpad app. Import audio via AirDrop, Dropbox or AudioCopy, categorise your sounds and transform Launchpad app into a powerful performance tool for playing your own original music — with per-pad volume editing to ensure the whole session sounds just right.
On iPhone, dynamic and interactive FX such as a filter, gater, stutter and delay rocket your creativity to a whole new level.
Launchpad on iPad also supports the Novation Launch products via a camera connection kit — Launchpad Mini, Launchkey Mini, Launchpad S, Launch Control, or Launchkey 25, 49, or 61. Launch sounds and FX with real back-lit pads and control volume and filters with sliders and knobs.
Making music has never been so much fun.

What's New in Version 1.10
Import your own sounds more easily with AirDrop!
It's now even easier to make your own unique creations using Audio Import (available on iPad as an In-App Purchase). Simply drag and drop files from your Finder window onto your iPad, and they'll appear in Launchpad.
Brilliant music making app!
Make your own dance tunes instantly and with no real need for any musical know-how! What a cracking little app - intuitive, easy to use - you can't actually go wrong, whatever you do will sound great. And once you do actually know what you're doing, then you could play an entire live DJ set with this at your night club of choice! Buy and enjoy.
Got this with launch keys app, launchpad mini, launch control and novation audiohub. Amazing sound through the hub, club ready.
Please can we have the ability to save loops together to form 'songs'. Its the one function needed for live use, using pen and paper or ios notes to remember the loops used to create a song is not good!
And please can we have some more fx. Maybe make them assignable to the bottom pads, in edit mode, like you currently do with the loops themselves.
Please keep the soundpacks coming!
This is a really great app for making music, as most of us agree, but it's unfair to slag something off because you don't know how to use it.
