NOISE is a free app that makes music mobile, so you can sketch musical ideas anywhere you take your connected device. Using easy-to-learn gestures you’ll create beats, melodies, and songs with a diverse library of sounds — all on the touch screen of your phone or tablet. Extend the musical power of NOISE by pairing it with ROLI BLOCKS devices. A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC A glass surface becomes unbelievably musical with NOISE, which lets you make and shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You create music through intuitive gestures on a series of easy-to-navigate interfaces. A HIGH-POWERED MUSICAL SKETCHPAD Not only can you perform music with NOISE. You can also produce. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from to string sections to crunchy hip hop basses. Record basslines and melodies as loops of varying lengths. Mix and match your loops to build amazingly multi-layered songs — all within the app. Then export your project to desktop studio software and refine your musical idea further. 500 SOUNDS — AND GROWING The ever-growing library of NOISE sounds include powerful percussion, sparkly synths, magic flutes, head-banging guitar leads, rousing orchestrals, and stunningly life-like acoustic strings and brass. World-renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Steve Aoki, and Rudimental have also created customized packs of their signature sounds. 35 sounds are completely free, and hundreds more are available through in-app purchases. ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL The power of NOISE expands when you connect to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music-making system. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE becomes the sound engine for the Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block controllers. Apply the musical gestures you’ve learned in NOISE to the pressure-responsive silicone surfaces of BLOCKS — and be even more expressive. Watch films and learn more about BLOCKS on Minimum Requirements: • Phone 6 or higher • iPhone SE • iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro • iPod Touch 6th Gen • iOS 9 or higher



  • Just okay

    By Bro gamer
    Lightpad is awesome. Software is lacking. Not very good with other programs except for noise which again is just kinda okay.
  • It’s a cool app, but...

    By 5jobsmakemoney
    I really liked this app, it was fun, entertaining, and a quick app to play when bored. Even great for my little siblings, it was easy and I wasn’t afraid them ruining any of my progress because it has no levels. The only reason I had deleted it is because I got tired of it quickly. After a month of seeing it on my phone and not touching it I deleted it because I personally viewed it as waste of space. But it’s great for creating cool, quick beats, and even greater for young wannabe DJs.
  • Overdubbing changes how I use it.

    By A. Toonguy
    If you're a pretentious perfectionist Pro, this may not be for you. But, if you like to create music for fun and entertainment and are a normal human being, this is really great. Version 3 shows their commitment to the software the hardware AND the instrument packs. It’s a night and day difference from all the versions that came before... my blocks have become far more capable and configurable! So, ignore any reviews from before Version 3 was released in September. This is rapidly becoming my number two go-to music app. Sketching ideas is quick, overdubbing makes drum tracks more dynamic, and all the audio can be exported as files to load into your DAW. It’s also easy to upload snippets to to share and to download and remix others creations
  • Fix this already

    By JamesYOoooo
    App crashes and deletes recorded content = 1 Star. Get it right. I didn’t pay hundreds of dollars for a crappy software app, get it right.
  • Love the latest update

    By Manolis223
    Seriously a game changer. Not sure if the props goes to Pharrell, but since he came on board everything's been super chill. One thing: would really dig an easier way to export loops to iOS Garageband. That would make this the perfect pocket-production rig.
  • It’s pretty good

    By Boombox nerd
    The thing is, it’s pretty cool making music from other artists’ instruments that they use in their song, like for instance, N.E.R.D.-Lemon. That’s pretty cool. The other thing is, you only get 3 music Packs for free. But it’s not that bad. It’s fun mixing music with other artists’ music. It’s just the other music packs are a little over priced. But other than that it’s pretty good.
  • One of my favorite synths, but lacking standard features

    By jwhitemusic
    AUv3 support is great but I find that I’d rather use Noise’s play grid. AUv3 forced me to use whatever built in midi keyboard the host has. So I wish Noise had inter app audio. That’s like usually the most basic feature in iOS audio. It’s so frustrating that IAA isn’t implemented because your play grid is nice to use.
  • Bringing mobile music production to the next level

    By JBK345
    I’ve been using GarageBand for a while when I found this app, if I had no clue how to use it but once I got into it I realized it was a godsend. ROLI is a great company and all of their products are fantastic I can’t wait to get more of them
  • IphoneX Support?

    By FrostyJudas
    Still have black bars up and down. Still can’t use my expensive Rise. Still have ripped my early packs purchase when this was still a Seaboard module.
  • New update added export to Audioshare!!!

    By Fretless33
    I'm updating my review since the latest update. They added export To Audioshare which is a major step forward. This small feature makes it so you can actually use the loops/songs you create with other apps, like your DAW and so on. They just turned Noise into a usable musical app! Thank you Roli team!!!
