NOISE is a powerful modular music app that lets you make music in minutes, whether you’re a beginner or a pro musician. Using simple, easy-to-learn gestures, you can create beats, melodies and songs with a huge library of sounds. NOISE was developed by music technology pioneer ROLI, and the app’s expressive power can be expanded with ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio.

Your touch screen becomes a real musical instrument with NOISE, which lets you shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You make music through intuitive gestures on a grid of colorful pads. Each pad is a particular instrument or a note in a scale.

NOISE makes you both a performer and a producer. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from bongo drums to string sections to zithers. Shape those sounds into beats and melodies, and record them as loops. Then mix and match these loops and build amazingly multi-layered songs.

If you love listening to music but don’t think you can play an instrument, NOISE may change your mind. It’s a fun, interactive learning tool. In Learn Mode, just trace illuminated Light Trails to learn how to shape beats and melodies. Choose from one of 15 scales, and the notes of that scale light up on the grid. Turn on Hide Mode to always stay in tune — it hides notes that not in the key. Use Snap Mode to stay in time — it snaps your performance to the tempo.

Grimes, RZA, Steve Aoki, and other world-renowned artists are releasing signature soundpacks for everyone making music with NOISE. Build your next song with sounds straight from the studio of a professional artist. Available through in-app purchase and on

The power of NOISE expands when it’s connected to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE is the software engine for BLOCKS. Visit to learn more about the Lightpad Block, the central Block in the system. On the Lightpad Block’s pressure-sensitive, illuminated surface you shape sound in all the ways you do in NOISE, with a surface that lets you be even more expressive.

New update And same old garbage.I received the blocks as gifts - Don't waste your $$$$$ on them.

Noise/Roli gives you NO way to EXPORT your sounds - ONLY SHARE your loops with a Creative Commons license on Their website. NO AUDIO EXPORT no IAA no Audiobus- NOTHING. Very very disappointing. NOISE/ROLI DOES NOT TELL YOU THAT IN THE DESCRIPTION. I would guess they don't want you to know that.

The blocks are just expensive bricks, very unresponsive. Plus you can't record and save your own files. Roli calls the Noise app a "studio" It's Not, the limitations of this app - block/brick combo is mind boggling.

They say this app is "designed for learners" "Noise makes you both a performer and a producer" they advertise "trace illuminated light trails to learn" I would say you need to be tripping on illuminated light trails to buy these unresponsive expensive garbage blocks unfortunately "learners" might believe them and the person who bought me the blocks as a gift was swindled out of their money. I don't want that to happen to you.

Don't waste your time or $$$$$ on this fake studio. This app gives music apps and hardware designers a bad name.

Zero star rating.

Very very buggy app, support is awful

The app still has some very serious issues that are not that difficult to fix (I'm a software developer). When I contacted support to try to help them with the issue, they had difficulty understanding the very direct communication I had with them and weren't helpful. For a company that's trying to get this product off the ground they don't seek to have told support that they should be more amenable to assistance from knowledgeable customers who want to help.

One thing

I like how you can apply dynamics and I think the sounds are great... I just wish that within a certain row of recordings you can make it all different instruments; you have to have it as the same instrument.
