Audio Import, the most requested feature by Novation users, is now available via In App Purchase in the free Launchpad app for iPad. This addition opens the app up as a much more powerful tool for users who want to perform original music on their iPad. Once purchased, users can import their own loops and samples via Dropbox, with additional import mechanisms promised for the near future.
Import WAV/AIFF samples by BPM with Dropbox (free Dropbox account required) and assign them to any Launch pad as loops or one shots. Whether from third-party sample providers or exported from your own productions, combine your samples with built in and In-App purchased Launchpacks to create a unique library to perform with. New and improved Library Manager and Edit Modes - available to all users - make it quicker and easier to set up your musical grid and play.
While the Launchpad app can be controlled simply with the iPad's touchscreen, it also works with Launchpad Mini, Launchkey Mini, and their bigger brothers Launchpad S and Launchkey - and synchronises with the companion Launchkey app's synth. Launch loops and sounds, DJ style effects and filters, and mix your loops all within Launchpad app, and with the audio import upgrade you can play your own BPM tagged loops and one shot sounds directly from the Launch hardware without a computer.
