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!

Latest update - free sound packs?

No sign of the free sound packs listed as available with latest update.
I have received a reply to this from the developer. This then got more confusing. The developer replied to my original review saying there are two not three free sound packs in the latest update despite what it says in the update information. The confusion was then removed when I found there were indeed three new projects in the Projects menu. It would have been helpful if the update information had indicated that there were three new free projects in the Projects menu. As was logical, I had looked in the Shop where sound packs are usually to be found.
However, the developer is to be applauded for a quick response to my review.

Developer Response ,

Hey Andy. The 2 packs are RetroFunk, Midnight house and Future Trap. They're in your projects list when you update the app. Hope you enjoy them.

Very good

Love this app, when its ‘fully loaded’ it becomes an intuitive and infinitely flexible tool in a musicians arsenal for creating great tracks. You don’t even ‘need’ the hardware launchpad to get the best out of it, as a stand-alone iPad app it is very easy to use and enjoy.
Edit:-Just had to come back & add to my previous review, this app has now evolved from a really useful tool to something really special. The improvements with the FX have made a huge difference, they are incredibly flexible. You can combine them, tune them and map them as you see fit. They are very intuitive & probably the best implimentation of 'on the fly' performance FX I have yet seen on IOS. Best function imho, though, is the import tool, so you can use your own samples and loops.
Great app, snag it now. You wont be disappointed.
