Blocs Wave, released last year, has quickly become one of the easiest and most creative ways to start making new music, thanks to its discover and easy record modes. Launchpad, on the other hand, for iOS remains one of the most powerful and popular iOS apps for remixing and performing music.
Yesterday saw the release of Blocs Export, an update that allow the two platforms to work harmoniously together.
Users can now start making music in Blocs Wave and send it to Launchpad with the new Blocs Export feature, allowing them to make their own Launchpad Soundpacks.
Simple to use, tap the export button in Blocs Wave, and your pads will open up in Launchpad ready for you to perform, apply FX and record your performances.
Making changes is easy: return to the Blocs Wave project in a single tap, switch out loops, record new vocals, and rearrange your ideas. Then just tap ‘Re-export’ and everything will be updated in Launchpad.
In addition to Blocs Export, Novation has recently introduced Launchpad Soundpack Sharing, allowing your Blocs Wave purchases to automatically appear in Launchpad.
Blocs Export allows the Blocs apps to work together in a truly unique and powerful way, allowing DJs and producers to create and perform music on iOS like never before.
