Dang.  Wouldnt recommend  5 star

Check it out. no other words necessary


I have a problem  Crazy_B_YT  4 star

I mean it’s a good app, except for one thing. I can’t connect my launchpad MK2 connected to this stupid iPhone 5s! It turns on when I connect it but it doesn’t light up and respond with the app! 3 words. I HATE THAT! I can’t find the midi sync I/O so I can’t use it can you please help. Ampify Novation Pleaaaase!!!!


Love it..  Rhythmmaster420  5 star

Make you feel like a pro, from the start.. inspiration


Good stuff!  alambert83  5 star

This is great for someone like me who just wants to mess around in their free time and try to learn something. I'm having an absolute blast! I'm sure if you know what you're doing you can get even more out of it. For a noob like me it's an awesome way to dip your toes into the world of beat making. Can't put it down!


Almost perfect  TheKid_Himself  4 star

When you import samples the playback speed doesn't reflect file BPM. So your samples speed up or slow down. Other wise the app is great.


I Love Launchpad!  chazatlas  5 star

Launchpad is one of the absolute best music production apps available! It's the easiest to use, has the best sounds, is expandable and the support goes above & beyond to help you.


I'm Proud to be BruhMonJee  Pusskake  5 star

It's impossible for me to sit down, shut up, and learn. If learning was School Oriented or Music Oriented, I had soooooo much trouble with it. Even tho I was considered talented, I felt stuck and became depressed knowing I had the ears of a Fully Loaded Musician that could play anything. Launchpad made the usage of my Musical Ears easy to use and I'm proud to create track with this App and call myself BruhMonJee. 5 Stars ✨ - BruhMonJee (Gamer - Entertainer - Reviewer - SoundCloud)


Great App But....  JWygant  3 star

This is a great app and fun but that is all it is fun, it has absolutely 0 production value and NONE of the features of the physical units which you would expect see in an app such as this, especially with it being named exactly the same, but so far as I can tell, you cannot connect it as a MIDI device to your DAW, nor assign samples to the pads to trigger sounds in the DAW, or anything else you would think that it would as a launchpad. In the end this app does a good job of mimicking the real thing, and the sounds included are decent, but this is definitely not what it appears to be.

Amazingly creative!!!  Wowkal Kev  5 star

I just did a long haul flight and ran my ipad battery down playing launchpad. Absolutely amazing app. 1 feature request. When pressing the tempo button, can it also display the key please? When using the ableton live function I keep having to go into the sound pack store to determine the key of the sound pack to key match with other apps.


We need more pages!  F O K K S E S  5 star

Recently I have used samples for BeatPad PC and I was wondering if pages could be a feature. It would be a great feature to have in the app as users can perform launchpad covers on iOS. Thank you!

I recommend this you must get it


Not really a launch pad...  Timmy&Twertle🐢  2 star

I searched launch pad into search because i wanted a launch pad app. This isn't a launch pad because you dont created the music by hitting the notes. And it costs money ti import your own sounds. Would not recommend.
