Editors’ Notes

Beautifully presented and intuitively designed, Blocs Wave is an engaging tool for making music. Using simple taps, you can add sounds from a number of genres, and many more are available through In-App Purchases. You can also create unique sounds by manipulating waveforms with your fingertips (which looks as cool as it sounds) and record your own using your device’s microphone.

My whole family digs this app!

I came across this app by a Youtuber recommendation, as a means to get ideas out and formulated very quickly. It helps me a lot, specifically when I need to be creative, but I have that starters “block”, making it difficult to get going. It’s also a great way to pass time and still be productive. As for my kids, my 11yr old daughter has become interested in it, as she plays trombone in school, but gets bored with their music. It allows her to expand her thinking. But for my 7yr old son?... this app has awakened a beast. If I let him, he will sit on my iPad all day just making beats. As it is, I have had to somewhat repurpose my iPad around this app and a few others. So yes, I could easily give it 5 stars. I do have a request though. Is it possible to include a search feature? Maybe even a subgroup/folder input feature? I’ve input many of my own sample packs, but it has been a tedious venture, being that I am only allowed to input files. If you can make it where folders can be input, and they would still remain accessible as subgroups within the app... I would be over the moon for this app.

is it here? ,

One of the best!!!!

This all sat in my phone for a month before I got bored and began exploring it. Omg I can’t believe how powerful but amazingly simple to use little app. I’ve been looking for this!!!! Yeah it doesn’t have the advanced editing features some of my others have but it’s still super fun to play around with. I’ve made a couple bangers already. Awesome that you can’t shoot it over to Launchpad so you can play your “clips” individually almost like an Ableton environment. I hooked up my Launchpad mini and was super excited but unfortunately it doesn’t work with that app even though on the box it says it does. Man if I could build em all in Blocs Wave, shoot the individual shots over to launchpad app, plugin the mini, open GarageBand or Fl Studio or whatever DAW you want and use the IAA to have your launchpad and record? Hell I might never ever need a laptop again. AMPIFY PLEASE MAKE IT SO!!!! I will love and support you forever! Haha

Edit: I just read on Launchpads info that it does do that but only with iPad. Womp womp womp. Guess I gotta but an iPad now. Wish you could make that happen for iPhone.
