What is Live Block?
When you're playing live, every second counts and there's no time for browsing through menus. Live Block puts the most frequently used functions for performance in immediate reach.
Do I need other hardware and software to use Live Block?
Live Block should be used with the Lightpad Block, which serves as a hub or Master Block. Together, these BLOCKS act as controllers for our expressive music app NOISE. When paired via MIDI-over-Bluetooth, they create an extremely powerful mobile, modular and digital music making platform. NOISE can be downloaded on your iOS device for free on the App Store.
What's the difference between the Live Block and Loop Block?
Live Block puts the most frequently used functions for performance in immediate reach such as Volume, Chord, Scale, Arp, Sustain, and Octave. The Loop Block puts the most frequently used functions for capturing, looping and layering sound in immediate reach, cutting down the amount of time spent in software and maximising the possibilities for expression.
