Whenever you want to record your tunes on Launchpad App, you can do so with the tap of a button. It even autosaves your sessions as you go, so your flashes of inspiration are always safe and sound.

If you fancy pushing your creativity even further, you can output your music to Audiobus compatible apps like GarageBand and Cubasis, or apply your favourite effects live! Then when you're ready, you can share your performances with the world via Soundcloud, Dropbox, AudioCopy or e-mail.

Launchpad App is made specifically and exclusively for iPad. It supports iOS 6 and iOS 7 and is compatible with iPad 2, iPad (3rd Generation), iPad (4th Generation), and iPad mini.

However, for seamless hands-on control of your Launchpad App, connect your iPad to a Launchpad S, Launchpad Mini, Launchkey or Launchkey MiniNovation by using a Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB cable.
