Novation is pleased to announce a free update to its hugely popular Launchpad app for iPad, introducing the ability to record performances and share them via Dropbox, Soundcloud, and email. In addition, improvements to the Audio Import upgrade allow users to categorise their sounds and create individual libraries.
This 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, and email let you share your performances.
