  • Very poor audio quality

    By venicerocco
    It's a shame, because this app is really cool. I love the layout, usability and speed. It's a seriously fun app. However, it is made completely redundant by the terrible, low quality of the audio samples. Presumably to make them quick to download. Knowing I could export as a .wav, I excitedly purchased several different packs which sounded fine when reviewed via earbuds. But if you export a mix and play it back on even rudamenrary speakers, you can hear how muddy and compressed the audio is. I am NOT an audio professional (which is why I like this app) and to my ears it just sounds terrible, rendering it as a fun toy to tinker with, not a music making tool. Bummer. If I was able to get good quality samples, I'd probably buy all the packs as I need to make music quickly for videos and spit them out.
  • Quick Sketches & Ideas Generator

    I consider Blocs Wave to be an essential app and an integral part of the modern iOS workflow. The IAP sound packs are an excellent value, it’s easy to pull in your own samples or record new ones straight into the app, and the workflow/GUI is as intuitive & useful as any. When I’m looking for ideas and inspiration, this is among the first apps I turn to.
  • This is a stupid app

    By alphamusicianbeta
    It has no redeeming value. You just play with prerecorded loops. There’s no creativity. It’s how wanna be musicians.
  • So creative!

    By Huybgtrfvnjug
    I wish there was when you go to the edit button, I want it to be loop, slice, and more stuff. Even sound FX and FX (like flanger, echo etc.) on the edit button.
  • Brilliantly addictive

    Help! I can’t stop. This app is fantastic! I love it! Make music people!
  • Worthless if you’re trying to use your own samples

    By Alain-Christian
    I did all this work to edit a few wav files and make them loop perfectly only for this app to add GAPS AT THE END on import. Terrible app. Completely pointless waste of time and money for anyone hoping to use their own audio samples. The importing is handicapped to force you to buy their audio tracks. Don’t be fooled. Was really hoping to use this with launchpad to make my own original performance but that dream is dead.
  • Great app

    By Ecox78
    Works every time!!!!! You can really make great original music with a little creativity!!
  • I love this app. But..

    By RashelleStarr
    This app sounds amazing and has become my secret weapon in writing songs. You have got to add something to your next update ASAP please. When switching patterns there should be two things. The ability to have a different key. AND most importantly, the option to have the switch at the end of the phrase, so the switches are smooth and you don’t have to worry about pressing for the next pattern right on the beat. This makes it choppy and not very musical sounding. A song pattern programmer would be cool too.....still giving ya 5 stars. It’s a great app. But it seriously needs those additions.
