NOISE is a free app that makes music mobile, so you can sketch musical ideas anywhere you take your connected device. Using easy-to-learn gestures you’ll create beats, melodies, and songs with a diverse library of sounds — all on the touch screen of your phone or tablet. Extend the musical power of NOISE by pairing it with ROLI BLOCKS devices.
A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC
A glass surface becomes unbelievably musical with NOISE, which lets you make and shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You create music through intuitive gestures on a series of easy-to-navigate interfaces.
A HIGH-POWERED MUSICAL SKETCHPAD
Not only can you perform music with NOISE. You can also produce. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from to string sections to crunchy hip hop basses. Record basslines and melodies as loops of varying lengths. Mix and match your loops to build amazingly multi-layered songs — all within the app. Then export your project to desktop studio software and refine your musical idea further.
500 SOUNDS — AND GROWING
The ever-growing library of NOISE sounds include powerful percussion, sparkly synths, magic flutes, head-banging guitar leads, rousing orchestrals, and stunningly life-like acoustic strings and brass. World-renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Steve Aoki, and Rudimental have also created customized packs of their signature sounds. 35 sounds are completely free, and hundreds more are available through in-app purchases.
ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The power of NOISE expands when you connect to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music-making system. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE becomes the sound engine for the Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block controllers. Apply the musical gestures you’ve learned in NOISE to the pressure-responsive silicone surfaces of BLOCKS — and be even more expressive. Watch films and learn more about BLOCKS on ROLI.com.

Add on packs are coastly....other wise no words
This is very good for all and please give a best update
The app is really great for making sick beats on the go.With the 3D Touch in my device, it gives a whole another level of expression.And now with the added support of ROLI Blocks, things just got a whole lot more interesting...
One of the best apps I saw in my life
Block pads for noise melodies is still missing on GarageBand.
Please add this most needed feature as it will make using creating music super fun and easy.
It’s been 5 months now since last update.
Where is the Transpose button in Noise app.
Many people use it a lot, if it is not there please include it in the next Update. Thank you
Please do needful
For creative people
The makers want you to buy the roll block device since all the features are enabled once you pair your iOS device using Bluetooth. I purchased a sound pack and cannot change the scale or beat timing. Also the app is buggy. Had to reinstall to make it work. Distortion happens when you add all the sounds - this might damage the iPhone speakers/headset. Waste of money and time. Beware
New update crashes a lot..please fix the bug ASAP.! Could not able to open it.!
Thanks guys for such a wonderful app which works great.
Where is the seaboard rise??????????
Please fix it asap.
After i restore my previous purchase the app keeps crashing while loading, plz help
The concept and basic usage is amazingly simple and functional. But more features and frequent updates are needed. E.g there is no ocatave switch which cn be manipulated while playing.there is no recording and overdub as well.
Used the app it's fun but few important buttons to make the music is not working like the demo video shows like press , strike and lift and there is also no way to record the music you make like a MP3 or email the tune to you as a mail please make these features work then it would be a an amazing music app
Thats a cool
It's way too sensitive and changes the note when your using multiple keys at the same time. And you can't record your music directly to your phone from the app.
Loved the app. Fun playing it. I hope that it comes for iPad as well.
Luv to play Roli :)) its an amazing!!!
