Novation adds Performance FX to Launchpad iOS app

Novation has updated its Launchpad for iOS app with Performance FX, a range of in-app purchases that are designed to help you add a bit of sonic personality to your performances.

Launchpad is a grid-based loop-triggering app that's inspired by the MIDI pad controller of the same name (you can work with the supplied loops and sounds or buy/import more), and version 1.11 gives you the option to buy four Performance FX.

These are Stutter ($1.99/£1.49), Autofilter ($2.99/£2.29), Delay ($4.99/£3.99) and Gater ($2.99/£2.29).

You can find out more below, see them in action in the video above, and download the Launchpad app for free from the Apple App Store.
