Jim the Grin ,


Yeah it's proper good. I'm using it on 2 iPads synced. Spend hours messing stuff up & mixing from one genre to another. Could do with the ability to save each soundpack into a folder (or record bag) so it's easier to find the tracks you want. Also when a track is loaded I need to see the title of that pack as I'm playing it, just so when I'm loading another on the 2nd iPad I don't load the same pack. Little gripes though for what is a fantastic app. Even the sound packs you think you're not gonna like (Trap,techno & so on) can be mixed with house beats & pitched down so you get an altogether different sound. I'd advise anyone to pinch there siblings iPad, sync it to yours & start mashing up some genres. Yes. Excellent fun.
Edit. Since the update you can now mix between sound packs which is absolutely amazing. Seriously good stuff. I’m considering doing a DJ set out live now just with this app. Love playing multi genre sets & its now possible to do this with launchpad & not have a silent gap going from one pack to the next. Bravo. 11 out of 10.

Must Have App For Beginners & Pros

I have been using this for a long time. It’s the first app I started to use to make some basic tracks and with it I started learning to use other apps and hardware that linked and synced with it as I progressed with my little bit of musical fun. The simplicity is a good way to get into making music but as you learn the app can become more complicated as you start to use midi controllers and Ableton Link. The app is great for triggering samples while looping live and with AUM it is the perfect app for mixing with synths and drum machines and with a hardware launchpad or launch control the app is totally controlled without touching the iPad. The iPhone version is a more limited version but I can’t complain about it with the 3D Touch being an interesting function. The only thing missing is anything that can export the project files to use with Ableton or use the samples in another app. If it had the export of the other apps like Groovebox it would be 5 stars and the greatest app ever. The midi control is self explanatory with the launchpad and launch control being hardware versions of what you see on screen but it could be more customisable when running multiple apps linked together although I only recently started linking midi devices. So it is the main app that I always use when linking apps and it’s a good way to learn the basics of music production. Just add the export and then it is complete!

Another immediate and inspiring app from Ampify

This is one of the musical apps that I use everyday in my line of work because of the great loops on offer and most importantly, the ability to mix and match with your own loops within the app.
Some suggested improvements for the developers: 1- in the editing mode, the ability to easily move the pads to reorganise them within the grid, 2- the ability to transfer a project from one iPad to another in the same way you can with GarageBand with Airdrop, 3- the ability to duplicate a project on the same iPad as you can with GB again. At the moment, if you edit an existing Soundpack, when saved it will erase the original and there no easy way to restore the original afterwards.
It would also be nice to increase the range of effects on offer and to be able to apply effects to specific pads and not simply on the main mix.
