Launchpad App Now Audiobus Compatible

Novation has announced an update to their Launchpad App for iOS.

Launchpad lets you make, record and share music on the iPad by triggering and mixing sounds on a grid. The updated version, v.1.5 lets you output those songs directly into any Audiobus-compatible application.

This opens the door to doing things like:

  • Adding to your songs using GarageBand
  • Applying external effects during live performance
  • Outputting beats straight to Cubasis

Here’s what’s new in Launchpad 1.5:

  • Output to Audiobus
  • Improved stutter FX
  • bug fixes and performance improvements


  • 8×6 Launchpad grid for launching up to 8 loops and sounds at a time
  • Eight volume sliders and eight filter sliders
  • FX section for adding repeat and synced filter effects
  • Free professional loop and sample library from Loopmasters
  • Record and share your performances
  • Regular In-App Purchase Launchpack libraries
  • Import your own sounds via Dropbox or AudioCopy (In-App Purchase)
  • Export your sounds via Soundcloud, Dropbox, Audiocopy, email or Audiobus.
  • Load new complete sessions and sounds
  • Global tempo change
  • Edit mode for loading samples
  • Autosave — never lose your sessions
  • Control the Launchpad App with Novation hardware. Connect any Launch product — Novation Launchpad Mini, Launchkey Mini, Launchpad S, Launch Control, or Launchkey 25, 49, or 61 note keyboard — to your iPad using the camera connection kit. Launch sounds and FX with real back-lit pads and control volume and filters with sliders and knobs.

Novation Launchpad is a free download from the App Store. Additional sound libraries are available via In App purchases.
