  • Severely disappointed with dramatic changes

    By Former Obsessed Fan
    While i encourage new potential buyers to explore, as someone playing with this app for the past three years (or more) I’m grossly disappointed with how dramatically you have redefined the layout, which i imagine I’m now beholden to learning with no going back. You have needlessly changed layouts to a completely different orientation. It has not made it sexier, or sleeker, or brought a more friendly UI— it is obtuse, unclear, and has rendered useless the familiarity and workflow i had with great software that i willingly blew a lot of money on soundpacks for. If i sound excessively disappointed, it is because I’m a mediocre musician at best, and my forays into launchpad were my most rewarding experiences in music making. i own hardware synths (Volcas) that, we’re the manufacturer to rearrange the buttons so as to make it completely unrecognizable, i would find abhorrent. That you would do that simply because your customers buy software is distressing. You’ve taken my money and now bait and switched me to something that is (to some, not me) more aesthetically pleasing, at the complete cost of functionality. i really do not see myself learning how to use this new layout with a fraction of the ability i cultivated on the old layout, and therefore, wonder if I’ll use this much more. It’s honestly a tremendous turn off. I’m sure i could learn with great effort (and time that i sadly don’t have), but it is not appreciated, and causes pause to give you any more of my money by investing further into an app that i have no meaningful say in the changes of. i truly have sang the praises of this app for years to many people who’ve downloaded it and spent money. I’m guessing at the moment, but since I’ve more soundpacks than i can recall, I’ve no doubt spent over a hundred on this. You’ve rendered the product i have emphatically invested in useless. I’m personally, presumably done spending money in-app, and very sadly, don’t see myself using the app unless it reverts to the last interface style. Truly disheartened. Thank you for the once very enjoyable product it once was, and give consideration to reverting to that.

    You would think, “dang it, this app looks cool but it turns out you need in app purchases.” Nope. It’s awesome.
  • Will kill your battery

    Make sure you kill the app when youre done, or it will eat most of your battery in about half a day. Battery usage was at 53% for this one app from the time I unplugged (8ish) to right after I finished work (3pm). NOT ok!!!

  • Version 6.3.9 was better

    By Tuc panda edits
    This new design and everything together doesn't sit right. Older Version was far more better in my opinion. 6.3.9 was the best, it was overall better and easier. Now it feels like I'm playing a game more than making music, it's confusing and I didn't like it when 7.0 came out. Please return to the older version on this it was so much better and it hurts to have to write because I'm been here for so long.

  • I want the old version back

    By 1Chony
    The new update came at a high cost. Three features were removed: - on the old version you could see the BPM in the project. Not any more. Now you have to press the tempo button to see it. Pain in the neck when you’re using ableton link. - the old version stayed on indefinitely. In this version iPad goes to sleep after 5 min or so, so I have to keep waking it up during a performance!!! - an extra menu was added so when trying to switch projects during a performance you have the added step of opening the projects folder. I want the old version back. The old version was 5 stars. This is 1. The upgrades are not worth the downgrades. I can’t use this anymore. I wrote to novation twice but have received no reply. I’m checking out RemixLive app that doesn’t have these problems (it does have other downsides so it’s a tough call...)
