Now with Recording, Sharing, and Audio Import

Want to make and remix music?

The Novation Launchpad is an easy-to-use app for iPad that will have you making beats and music instantly. It comes with eight ready-to-perform sessions that span different musical genres, with regular new content delivered via In-App Purchase. Browse categories, packs, and favourites from your library to create your own sessions on the multi-colour Launchpad grid, and make and remix your music. Built-in time stretching and synchronisation always keep you locked into the beat — so your loops won't go out of time — and recording and exporting to Soundcloud, Dropbox, AudioCopy, and email let you share your performances.

For power users, Audio Import is available via In-App Purchase to allow you to import your own loops and sounds into Launchpad app. Import audio via 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.

The app follows some of the key features from the renowned Launchpad hardware — now used by many of the world's most famous DJs, producers and performers — but brings a whole new level of simplicity and fun.

Eight volume and eight filter sliders allow quick changes, and simple FX modes offer DJ-style effects including beat repeat and filter LFO, adding fun ways to remix your music and make your performance unique.

Making music has never been so much fun.

Customer Reviews

I really like it, but there is something missing...

Novation, creators of Novation Launcher Pad, I like to say that there is something missing in this app. It has what I expected but the "kick" noise is missing and category type called "hardstyle". If you don't know what means, it is a type of music that is mix with trance hard-trance, partial part of dub style, and etc. Please maybe in the next update I want to try make my own hardstyle.

Perfect for live sets

I think some people may have been a little overly critical of this app. It's perfect for doing a live electronic or DJ set on an iPad and as far as loop juggling a la Ableton I don't think there is anything as good currently out there. Love it!


So I read somewhere that this is the best app ever for iPad? Ya right! I'll be the judge of that! Holly crap! I believe it just may be! And I'm no spring chicken! At any age, this app is a blast! Purchased the down tempo pack and digging on it! Off to get more!
