Novation's hugely popular FREE Launchpad iPad App has now been updated, with a number of bug fixes and a brand new Audio Import function! This is something that users have been asking for since the release of the Launchpad App and it now means that you aren't limited by the sounds that come with it. If you've got some of your own WAV or AIFF samples and loops then you can now import them into the App using Dropbox (free Dropbox account required), assign them to pads of your choice and then trigger them with the App. The Launchpad App also features time-stretching so that all your loops will stay in perfect time with each other.
