Inspiration for making music

I Absolutely love launchpad it my go to App when I want to start any track and it usually evolves into a full blown live set that gets exported to Ableton live using the export Ableton live session function that loads straight into live exactly the same as it appears on the launchpad App, I also use the Novation Launchkey mini connected to the iPad and works seamlessly I also use the Akai APC 40 mkii when using Ableton.
If you are going to purchase Launchpad then do yourself a favour and get yourself BLOCS WAVE & GROOVEBOX and unlock all the features coz you will want to use them I spend a lot of time sampling in blocs wave and love it it’s a constant evolving creative space, only advice would be to have folders to organise your own samples and loops and the ability to over dub on the same sample but other that this very small wish I LOVE AMPIFY 😁🙏👍🤟

Amazing app, can’t import...

I love this app. It’s so much fun to mess around with but a while ago I purchased the audio import and was very pleased that I could import sounds from other apps. I recently got a new iPad for Christmas and stopped using my parents Apple ID and got my own. I have family sharing so that I get all my old purchases but when I re-downloaded launchpad it didn’t have audio import, so I logged back into my mum’s account and deleted and downloaded launchpad again and the import was unlocked. So I went to sign back into my account and it was still there, so far so good. I later went to buy a soundpack I really liked and it asked me to sign in to the App Store. So after I did that I couldn’t use audio import any more. I don’t want to have to pay $10 again so is there any way to fix this?
Thanks, Charlie

Simply Brilliant

I was hooked the first time l downloaded it and l have not wavered regarding those initial feelings ever since.

The updates and tweaks over the years were introduced to us “end users” of this app, with a seamless integration which meant the benefits these updates brought with them, were able to be enjoyed and used to enhance something we were already doing on the previous platform and the effect was immediate.

Simply put, l never felt the need nor was l required, to spend hours or even days re-training myself on how to use the app.

No such drama with this one..! Wish l could rate it higher than just five stars.

I have mixed samples from years ago on this app and play them every now and then. It stills feel great to see people genuinely yet pleasantly surprised, when they learn it was one of my creations.

Now that’s kicking a the creators off this app, all l can say is, keep creating guys, cause these sort of achievements are only spawned by and with, passion.
