The app to change my life

I’ve written a great many things about this application and I wish I could remember the words and the feelings and share them with you because of my journey in my hardships I have not been able to be right minded enough to skillfully assess my life moment to moment as a normal person will have liked to but I am not a normal person I am not just a person as I’ve said I’m not just a junkie in fact I’m not a junkie I am a human being with emotions thoughts a mother a father children and I have and I have just like any other person have made some fortunate and other less than fortunate decisions in my life I recommend this application to download for anybody they can afford to put down whatever it is they’re doing and give the effort into doing something with emotions long enough to share this joy and loving life with musicWith everyone that you know who loves music you can be a joy no matter how much you think that you’re not or not able to be a joy to yourself you can at least see the people around you dance even though you think that they can’t be in that kind of mindset towards you you know that you can make some people smile who otherwise would not have

The Launchpad iOS

Thank you for your consideration I’ve been a “silent”Ambassador for Novation and there products.
My first purchase was The Orginal Launchpad with an Impulse 49 with a LIVE 7 Suite . I’ve continued to Support the Novation Family Software and Hardware adding twos Launchpad X’s, Launchkey 25 MK3, Circuit Trax, Bass Satiation , Max for Live, All the IOS Applications buying the Pro Features And Live Set For each Application when I purchased the Subscription I knew Have to shell out more Cash for renewal however I was extremely taking for A loop when the Subscription came to a End I would not be able to access anything past the point of me being subscribe this seem like completely wrong for many reasons . Not being able to have and option to revisit the projects That we developed seems like comprehensive way to drain the pockets of Consumers. How is this a fair practice. We have Subscription base programs for clothing, Food…..
I once had a T-shirt Subscription That was completely awesome for how exclusive it was however when the service Ended They didn’t take my shirts off my backs. The disappointment was definitely a shock for the first time in my long history of my loyalty to the Novation family of Brands . Your Product provides Superior experience in learning the craft and I personally feel that if I buy a subscription I committed myself to all the packages for that year. Looking forward to a response from the team!

hello hola hi die ,

Jason Rose, Umm I might be stupid?

So launchpad is amazing and is getting frequent updates, sound packs, and is always open for review. The free sound packs are amazing and the ones you buy could be better or worse depending on perspective. The one thing I don’t like about it is that once you’ve purchased something then exit out of the soundtrack you can’t restore your purchase so I might be missing something or I’m just stupid. I would really like if one of the developers could help me out here. I just read some of the reviews and saw that 2yrs ago someone had the same problem I did so where is the restore purchases page and by restore I mean get rid of the sound packs and get my money back because I bought one and realized it was the wrong one. If you could reply pls do ASAP. But this is still an amazing app and I would recommend people to download it. 20/10. Other than my bug it’s amazing so much appreciated developers for all you’ve done for this app.
