Blocs Wave updated – Novation add Ableton Live export to their loop-based music app – and it’s still ON SALE

Download from iTunes App StoreBlocs wave logo 1Since launched, Novation’s Blocs Wave has moved forward at quite a pace. The app itself, like Novation’s Launchpad, is also a loop and sample-based music creation tool…   but with some feature differences that make it distinct from the LaunchPad approach.

Anyway, Novation have rapidly developed the Blocs Wave concept further and a number of updates have already appeared for the app adding new import features, Ableton Link support, new export features, the very creative Slice Mode, a song construction system based upon the new ‘Sections‘ concept, improved import/export options and added panning and iOS10 support……  the rate of progress has been considerable and Novation are rapidly turning a great start into a very accomplished creative tool.

Blocs Wave - if you like working with loops, this is a great choice with a slick interface and a rapidly expanding feature set :-)

If you have read my news posts about both Triqtraq and Patterning from earlier today, then no prizes for guessing what v.9.0 of Blocs Wave – which arrived on the App Store today – is bringing; yep, the app now includes support for Ableton Live Sets export. Via the Export button, the pop-up panel now allows you to specific Ableton Live export for your Blocs Wave projects….  very cool :-)

Anyway, if you have not taken the plunge with Blocs Wave as yet, then now might be just the time to give your self a treat; for a limited-time only, Blocs Wave is available at a sale price, 50% off the usual amount of UK£4.99/US$5.99. Yep, you can grab a copy of one of the most fun ways to work with loops available for iOS for just UK£2.29/US$2.99 :-)

I must say that I really like Blocs Wave and the speed with which it is developing. And, even at the full price, this is not too much of a stretch for almost anyone to take a punt with. Novation really do know what they are about when it comes to loop-based musical tools and, while this is not a ‘do everything’ kind of tool, like some of the very best iOS music apps, the focused feature set is a strength here rather than a weakness; it makes for a fast and efficient – and creative – workflow. Anyway, check out the original full review of Blocs Wave and the videos embedded below for more details.
