  • One flaw

    By Robmarl
    Only one thing I can criticize about Groovebox I wish there were some acoustic instruments like a piano Other than that 10/10
  • Just hands down the coolest app

    By Dan Bass Slapper
    Can't believe this is a free app. I've shown all my friends. So much fun, even exports to WAV so you can save these ridiculous beats you make. Love it
  • Loch it

    Love it ❣
  • Awsome App

    By Sasmercado
    Love the app the synths are incredible the only suggestion I have is we need some 80’s drums on their, but besides that this is the way too go

    By TorresIIKenneth
    PERFECTION. ONE THING, PLEASE ADD AN EXPORT OPTION TO BLOCS WAVES TO MAKE THE PROCESS MORE SEAMLESS. THERES ONLY SOME MUCH ONE CAN TOLERATE WITH LEARNING THE METHODS TO THE APPS AS A SIDE PROJECT AND NOT HAVE SEAMLESS INTEGRATION. Even if we need to add some more cash in advance , this “simple” step will make the business of your creation that much more successful in the long run . Tomorrow . Today
  • Take off the kid gloves

    By BK Holiday
    DESPERATELY Waiting for the PRO feature to import/export midi stems IN/out and really take groovebox into the iOS Daw arena! Keep up the great work! PLEASE INCORPORATE MIDI IMPORT/EXPORT. I’d pay a $20.00 IAP for this feature alone personally!
  • Static Glitch

    By Q3591
    When you switch between sounds has a static and breaking up sound glitch. I would give 5 stars if it can be fixed.
  • The best app to make music!

    By ManuelNYC
    I 'LOVE' this app, I even bought a launchkey mini to play with it and my iphone, I love both! I think your app is the first one in the app-store to be really productive and friendly, I call it the 'Ableton mobile', you have in your hands the opportunity to become the first 'Ableton like' mobile app, not even Ableton is paying attention to mobile. Groovebox isn't perfect yet but you'll get there! It needs to be able to allow several patterns for each channel, currently it allows only 1 pattern. It needs automation too. Also a way to play the entire song. So far I love the app!!! Ps: include a sampler?!?! 😎
  • Please make it available to ios 9

    By SwiftNCloak
    Come on... Please make it available for ios 9
  • A few missing features.

    By mikenoface
    Preface: I’m a huge fan of Figure and use it daily. I’m digging Novation Groovebox, but if it had a few simple features/improvements, I would probably convert and rate 5 stars. • Add ability to record automation. • Add pinch and zoom to the grid view. • Add a quick mixer view for all four instruments. I have purchased some IAP for Launchpad and I feel it could be more universal. Example: Buy one soundpack and it loads something in all the Novation apps.
