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, create your own sessions and remixes by browsing the categories, soundpacks and favourites of the Launchpad sound library. Stutter, Gater, Autofilter and Delay FX add fun ways to make a unique and innovative performance. Use FX presets to get started quickly, or create your own FX pads with custom parameters and track routing (available via In-App Purchase). Save and load FX pad groups for instant musical creativity. 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.

No Love For Hardware Purchasers
After abandoning Launchkey to the non Audiobus desert Novation seem to be determined to annoy their customers.
So, I have a keyboard that does not work with the apps they advertise, and they seem to want quite a lot of additional cash from me for the privilege of triggering my own samples. Add in all the payments for effects and I think this is a bit of a rip off for purchasers of the Novation hardware.
Really good app, I made many music videos with this app. All it needs is more choices for melody, when making dubstep music. Besides that it's really good
Love it love it love it
This is the best Launchpad app I've ever played and it also has the best beats you'll ever listen to :)
