Novation has updated its Launchpad app for the iPad, adding Audio Import as an in-app purchase.
Here’s what’s new in Launchpad 1.2:
- Audio import (via In-App Purchase) – Transform Launchpad app into a powerful performance solution to play your own original music (audio import via Dropbox)
- Improved library manager – Browse categories, packs, and favourites
- Improved edit modes – New trigger and sync types
- Per pad volume edit
- Graphics overhaul
- Miscellaneous bugfixes and improvements
UPDATE: Here’s some additional information we received from Novation today (Oct 25), detailing the new Audio Import capability:
“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 professional 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.”
Pricing and Availability. Novation Launchpad is available in the App Store as a free download. Additional features and sound libraries are available as in-app purchases. The in-app purchase of Audio Import is now available for £4.99 / 5.99 Euro / $6.99.
