  • Amazing app!

    Just wish the bugs would go away!
  • Nice but a little buggy

    By Strizbiz
    I'm liking this app more and more buts it's a little buggy. Some loops don't start on the one, when I send them to launch pad they do but not in blocs wave, which makes it problematic when trying to create and hear how it will flow.
  • My favorite iOS music making app

    By iOSynthGuy
    All of the IAPs are worth it. I use this app on every track.
  • So close i can almost taste it

    HUGE step in the right direction from their original version which was total tripe. The sample slicing is great. Good job. It wouldn't take you much to get to 5 stars from here. A few suggestions would be: -separate key change capabilities on each trigger -simple and fast mute for each element -ADSR -effects bus -linear song building page -when auditioning new samples, the volume is reset with each loaded sample. This is a real pain because there's way too many steps to reach the volume. I don't know if you want to do a mixer page or what but if I set the volume for a new sample, it should stay at the volume as I am auditioning samples to find the right one. -speaking of samples, your expansion packs are 6/10 in my opinion, which for a phone is better than most. But they are way too expensive. If you're not going to lower the prices then at least do specials and free packs like all the other app developers. give us a break!
  • No shortage of Sound Blocs Here

    By Rabbi Neb
    I like this app a lot, however I must agree with another person here where after you export all six parts over to Launchpad, how do you get all six parts to play via song mode? There should be a song mode where you can enter these parts, all or some, thereby creating a playable song! Also, how does one go about saving a song, should be separate file to save too! Also, could use a couple more openings to record sound parts into, a total of eight would be nice. I know this is a work in progress but a few tweets would put this over the top!!!
  • Pretty good.

    By Formerly From Tokyo
    Unless I'm doing something wrong, it won't export a whole song. For example, if I want to email it to myself, it can either email each section of the song individually or email the (zipped) project file. Even when watching their tutorial video, it's confusing, because they'll say "export song" while choosing export section. However, you can export it to Launchpad and work with it there. The great samples, slick design, and intuitive use make the app, because otherwise functionality is very limited.
  • No way!

    By andy_marks
    Blocs wave is great but why are there no reviews?This app is multifunctional and easy to use.
  • On iphone 7+ it keeps crashing after export and doesnt send correct file

    By Jasoncrafton
    Great app and concept but theres nothing you can do or well on my device. Can make plenty of projects, sounds and all. Hit export either wav or aac and nadda. Keeps some original basic little preview test i did just to try the app. Maybe an update will help. Kinda nice if it worked
  • It's Cool!

    By Giano Cotto
    Something to play with n create new sounds!
  • I don't get it a lot

    By oplenist
    I don't get it, I have the app but it's kinda confusing for me to use but anyway good app! It's confusing by, how you change the pads (or blocks) and how the cut bar thingy works.
