  • Awesome and great 👍

    By R.A.A❤️☮️🐝⭐️
    Very well done and great 👍
  • Largely impressed!

    By FankiPants
    I haven’t even spent a penny in this app and I’m making several beats for projects. It’s helped me realize what notes should be achieved, especially in my singing. If nothing else, use it to tone-check yourself! I’m considering putting money into more of the features at some point!
  • I can’t buy “Trap bass”

    By Lavrydy
    Hello developers! Your app is super amazing but I can’t buy trap bass. Though app allows me to buy other types of bass. How can I fix this ?
  • Inspiration starts here.

    By Jonnie Sparkel
    I love the app, and I have no real complaints, just wants. I’d like to see all of my patterns, I like how selecting things work now but I’d also like to see all of my patterns to revel in my cache, and for easier experimentation. Like load a device and click a button to see every pattern. ALSO, THANK YOU for keeping the packs at 99 cents. The way you’ve designed this app is superb and full of so much hidden potential. The ability to edit “samples” is a game changer! Keep up the good work on this small world of apps you’ve been building.
  • Amazing

    By LUKEcraftyan
    I love this app better than garage band. It’s more simple but at the same time it can do a lot. I hope y’all come out with a desktop version
  • best app ever

    By levandole
    just perfect
  • One of my favorites

    By Doble_AA
    This app is quickly becoming one of my favorites in the novation/ampify suite. The amount of sounds you’re able to create/mix/modify is crazy. I hooked a midi keyboard up to my iPad and I’ve been having a blast.
  • A must-have for the composer/producer on the go!

    By 1TahuNuva
    I have logic pro at home and use this amazing app to write out super cool loops when I’m out! Nothing is more annoying than a song coming to you and having no way to write it down! Not anymore!! Thanks Novation! I also have your massive launchkey keyboard integrated with Logic Pro. Keep it up guys you are the best when it comes to mobile music software!
  • A very musical Groovebox

    By kithara-nvc
    I love the playability and sound of this app. The packs are good quality and the instrument controls fun to play with to tweak your sound. The keys and pads are also easy to use. If you want to only sketch musical ideas and send to a project in Ableton or stems to be loaded into your favorite DAW this is all you need. However if you want to do any further work polishing, extending with parameter automation, arranging and finishing a track you will be unsatisfied. I’m not saying I want Cubasis but I am saying that Auxy and Gadget gets you a lot further along the production workflow. I would like to see: Midi learn on all instrument knobs or perhaps main controls. Automation of the instrument knobs or perhaps main controls. Configurable Quantize when playing sections. Right now it seems to be quantized to lowest piano roll quantization. Be able to switch between legato section transitions as it is now and a full configurable quantum as above. Some kind of song mode or at least a performance capture. Yes there are many fine ways to capture performances such as AUM, or your iOS DAW of choice. I’d love to see Groovebox expose it’s separate channels to AudioBus or AUM so we can mix further at the instrument level where there are better solutions for midi learn.
