  • Very powerful!

    By ch4s3r
    Has reinvigorated musical inspiration and streamlined creation.
  • not cool

    By Sideways Syndrome
    they made it free so you had to pay even more inside the app.
  • Intuitive and Powerful

    By Toaster Fflow
    This is a free app for recording, playing, and managing loops. It comes with automated key and tempo matching, which works amazingly well if one doesn't push the processing too hard. The integration with AudioBus feels seamless, but I often find that recording does not always start precisely on the downbeat. There are some no-brainer in-app purchases. The slicer is a great tool for abstracting the familiar. Importing my own audio files is a must, too. While some may find the pre-loaded tracks to be of great use, I wish could just delete them all to save space. I also wish that there was a fade-in/fade-out tool to fix recordings that start in the middle of a sound. I use it, mostly, to create ambient tracks with different parts slowly fading in and out.
  • I want to control this over midi

    What the title says
  • Great app needs ability to copy paste slicer bars...

    By musician dan
    5 star app. Holding 1 star until they add and ability to copy and paste the slicer bars... also need the ability to select different keys for different sections. These are crucial features. And yet, they're adding so many great features every month as free ad ons!!! Just get it and support this great development team, oh...and give your music production nice boost, too.
  • Awesome app

    By Oldrumguy
    This continues to give me new ideas everyday very enjoyable
  • Bad update

    By Dirty DeSchepp
    The most recent update causes blocs wave to be buggy in many situations. Audiobus is where I noticed it. Many loading issues. This is otherwise a perfectly wonderful 5 star app
  • Love blocs wave

    By Kdragz
    Love the app but can we please get a count in for recording with a metronome. Also maybe a keyboard for sampling.
  • I love it!

    By Ruthlessmama
    I can't stop playing! Right now my only wish for the future would be some sort of user personalized directory system for the users imported loops. I love to play different styles of music, and would love to be able to arrange my samples by genre!

    By Rivera guitar amps are best
    There are some bad reviews here by people that don't know how the app works--what a shame. I don't think I use this app for what it is designed to do best, but it's so flexible and powerful I've been able to do a lot with it. I used to have a 3 hour plus daily commute via bus and train and this app made that time musically productive. Armed with some of the soundpacks available as in-app purchases, I explored what became endless possibilities. I even imported my own samples and restored life to them by using the new process. And the slicer opens up another dimension, allowing one to play slices in the samples with more possibilities yet again. My focus was on creating tracks that I could take to my DAW and combine again in even more ways. Now that my commute is different, I am taking the music I created in Blocs to a new phase and making complete compositions with them. The excitement continues...
