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). 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.

no need to be sad
congrats notation on another great addition to the armoury. I read one review saying "pay!?" but look someone has spent their time creating on other great tool for the app on the iPad. if I spend time doing something then I would like paying. it's a small gesture of appreciation to the mass of great things with this app. happy user!
I've had this app for well over a year now. I have looked at purchasing some novation peripherals, ur I want to master this app first. Start with a loop, use an effect, add another loop... before I know it, I've been playing for hours. Great fun and entertainment. No need to buy in app purchases if u don't want to, fun without. Get it!
Export purchased packs
I think the app is great packed now with new assignable FX made even better, great sharing options, I would like if possible the option to export purchased sound-pool packs to free memory on 16 GB IPAD and the the ability to import with audit import when needed.
