Love the app, but...

There is one thing that doesn't amaze me with the channels in NLK (Novation Launch Key)

1. I can't use multiple instruments on novation launchkey for Auxy.

2. Channels are not used as inputs, I would call them presets because I see no purpose for people using multiple channels on an IPad app in this case and one instrument device.

But if a device is inputed into the iPad like a keyboard of a sort, I would put it to omni. Omni would be a channel that is as if no matter what kind of channel you put, it will have the same instrument. But if you put the midi setting in NLK to ch. 1 and you put channel one as an output. But if you select ch. 2 as an input and you have Auxy output as a ch. 1 and the other as ch. 2, you won't be able to hear the one with ch. 1 because there is only one input assigned to the other while the other output doesn't have an input assigned for it. It would be very great if channels are like presets or at least inputs to work as if an instrument is like a project.

Any one having trouble with LaunchKey MK II not working well with Novation LaunchKey IOS app? I had the MK I it quit working and I bought the MK II and In Control and none of the pads working in Launchkey nor are the lights coming on showing which preset is playing??? USA Novation tech support told me that they arent supporing LaunchKey any more? In their adds it says In Control works and the MK II work with Novation IOS apps Am I the only one who bought this MK II to work as a keyboard controller for Novation Launchkey? Please Novation!
LaunchPad work s perfect with LaunchKey MK II, but really like to play lead within Blocs

Thank You!


This is a great app. A little repetitive, and seemingly locked into a limited scope of sounds ...but has great potential ...especially if it becomes usable with launchpad app ...and other Novation apps. Overall I gave 5 stars because it works well, and has been thought out for beginners ... And this app has the potential to go from great to legendary ...
