Novation Launchpad - Make & Remix Music Reviews


I wish you'd sell a bundle of the in app purchases  dandab1215  3 star

It all comes out to about 40 bucks. If you created a bundle and sold it at a cheaper price I'd be convinced to purchase it. A lot of other apps do that. Consumers don't like to pick and choose. Until then, I guess I'll stick to the free version.


Barely a Launchpad  Raptorboy555  3 star

The app does its basic skill, playing samples or loops, however it is not exactly the same as a Launchpad that you could physically buy. My main interests in the Launchpad are the ways you could create light effects and patterns and trigger a sound within the button (videos from Kaskobi and SoNevable are my main example). Basically, I would like ways to add light effects like in UniPad for Android, as an In-App Purchase or something.

Amazing  MH Agent  5 star

Perfect 👏👏👍🏻


good app  Ellieyahoo  4 star

except the fact that it kills my battery and is also lacking some basic options.. like backup synicing and such


Pretty Good  2957299173  3 star

Pretty good overall, but I wish some of the iPad exclusive features were brought over. Also, drains your battery really fast and runs in the background.


Great app, but drains battery  Brianxlin  2 star

Great app, easy to use, but have to remember to force close it or it will drain battery in the background.


Cool  Dudeguy599  5 star

Wow. Cool. Dope. Amazing. Lol.


Outstanding for beginners  stanfo  5 star

Especially for enthusiasts with limited availability


Must have app  iOSynthGuy  5 star

Essential for the iOS musician


Good  Bigrattdaddy  3 star

It was a better app when you could edit pads within the app. Someone in their infinite wisdom thought it would be better if you had to go to blocks wave to do your editing .personally I think it's better not to go back-and-forth and I really miss the editing in the Launchpad .it's a real headache now, especially somebody with an attention deficit like myself. I think I rated it five stars before they did the integration, and I'm taking away two stars for it. Very disappointing after spending a crap load on samples and effects.

This is the best app ever nice app.


Not Enough Deep Impactful Bass Packs  KellyAnnQ  4 star

I love the app, but, it only was a couple of really deep, crazy, or impactful packs! It needs more packs sort of like Trapstep! Please take note of this and I think making songs for my friend and I's YouTube channel (Trapstep with Zach and Josh) would be way more enjoyable!

¡¡¡¡No bueno!!!!!!!!

Very sweet little music maker!  ¡¡¡¡No bueno!!!!!!!!  4 star

Very cool app. Probably the best free music making app out on the market. The fact that you can upload your music straight to Soundcloud is very cool! I would recommend this to anyone that's looking to have a little fun with music but not looking to spend too much. The reason I give it 4 stars is because it uses 60 percent of my battery daily on my iPhone, when i'm not even using it, so I had to delete it! Has a lot of potential for a phone music app!


Great for beginners, or people with low funds.  632853  4 star

Great app, like, seriously. Maybe add a trial system to test packs.

Miko the Mann 99

Pretty good.  Miko the Mann 99  4 star

This app in all is a great app to make music on and to have a little fun. I have been cheap and not bought anything, but it's still amazing, also love how I can use garage band with it! Some of the loops are a little cheesy and I mean the audio import could be less. Garage band is $5.00, and the import is $6.99. I'm pretty sure I can do a lot more on garage band but still overall great👌🏾.

Elmer Funk

OMG FIX PLEASE!  Elmer Funk  3 star

This app has the potential to be really great. It's fun for beginners and pros alike, and could really be an workflow asset if they could work the bugs out. The app also nickel and dimes you for every option, effect, delay, etc.... Make the app $20 and call it a day. I understand charging for sound packs and other creative property - but for everything else, this isn't 1990, those are standard features nowadays. It's also annoying to have to purchase them all individually. Where's the 'all-in deal' complete options package? Importing audio has gone from being a $6.99 option that crashed the app, to not-being-an-option-at-all. Where's the import button... Or my refund? Like I said, this app has the potential to be killer, but until they work this out the import features, it's kinda useless to me.


Vast Improvements Over The Year  AshFallenBrightly  5 star

I used to hate it & so many of the changes .... I absolutely LOVE it now & the new UX changes are fantastic ! Please add ADSR envelopes


Ok but...  TWiTtErROBTOP  5 star

There should be a setting to change the colors of the launchpad mini. It's kind of basic. But like the songs on edm that r on sale!


Great app, needs update  c0rv0s  4 star

This app ran in the background of my phone for 48 hours draining the battery before I noticed. Other than that novation is an excellent and wonderful tool for making music. Please fix!


Truly original  XDreammaker  5 star

This music pad app is the top of the music pad apps, with some very unique and useful tools for sound manipulation, including the ability to edit how each pad reacts and adjust the volume for the pad blocks or the individual loops. It's easy to learn and use, but as advanced as the best music software I've used for music on a computer, except it fits on my phone with the added benefit of touch screen.
