Would be five if....
By VJ Sherlock Holmeboy
It allowed for projects to sync over iCloud. Doesn't even have to be live. Just would like to be able to start something on my phone and pick up where I left off on the iPad.
Aside from that...it's really well designed and nearly flawless when in use. Makes me want to buy the actual hardware after getting used to how this works.
For the love of god
BRING THE IPAD EXCLUSIVE CONTENT TO IPHONES!!!!!!
I know for a fact the processors can handle it. A smaller screen is no reason to cheat customers out of content. I recently had my iPad stolen & this is simply not an alternative to the IPad edition.
Good but not enough
It's seems like these sound packs are made by really amateur producers. The apps is very easy to use and has a really clean interface but the quality of sounds really takes away from the app.
Great App!, but...
There's a bug that appeared recently that force closes the app every time you try to modify any of the pads on the iPhone version. So now I can't customize the pads the way I want them
Fun and easy way to make interesting combinations of sounds!
If you are into make your own original sound with exciting sounds and beats this is the app for you.
Great app but lacking fundamentals.
First off, I'm a big contributor and supporter of Launchpad. I enjoy the app very much but there are a few things that I find are roadblocks to my creative abilities.
- Is there any way that each individual block could have it's own speed adjustment capability?
-I'm seeing that for every 5 sound packs lately, that have been released; I'm only downloading 1 to 2. Let's not reinvent the wheel here. Just keep it simple, straightforward but more importantly customizable. Maybe a strictly all melodic pack or all bass pack??
- I'd really like to see a deep progressive EDM sound-pack. Perhaps a progressive Goa based sound pack...Think "Bouncerz" or "Stagadish."
Other than that...keep up the good work. Thanks
Best pad game

NOT AN ABLETON CONTROLLER
If you're looking for an ableton live controller, skip this.
Please add hardware support for iPhone!
By Do klaus do
Launchpad for iPhone would be top notch if it supported the line of Novation launch hardware controllers like the iPad version does.
By Living Room Director
Highly functional and easy to learn. I can even let my kids DJ sets that get my head bobbing. Seriously, it's ridiculous.
