A new Novation sub-brand, Blocs, has announced Blocs Wave - a music creation app for iOS. The Blocs team grew out of Focusrite|Novation, where they were responsible for previous innovations such as the original Launchpad hardware and the Launchpad for iOS app. Here's the full details in their own words...
Blocs Wave for iOS is a music-creation app designed to inspire new ideas. Combine professional sounds from a wide array of genres. Tweak sounds using beautiful touchable waveforms, and even record your own vocals or instruments to help bring your ideas to life in minutes. With a real-time stretch loop concept at its heart, the app is designed to get you moving through new combinations quickly, in search of the perfect groove or musical idea. When you're done, export each sound and then continue in your own favourite external music software.
