Blocs Wave - Transfer projects between devices?

A quick question for everybody out there concerning the excellent Blocs Wave. My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

Is there any way to transfer projects, with all their assets, between devices? Like if I start something on the iPhone version can I get it into the iPad version to continue work on it?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Nevermind. I exported the project zip file to Dropbox then unzipped it into Augioshare on my iPad. Then I imported each part into Blocs Wave on my iPad. Clunky but it worked.

    Yeah pretty much the best way as far as I know. Doesn't obviously give you an exact copy if you are using chopped up beats, but it's possible to get those set up again with time and effort.

    Or if you want them to stay in their final chopped state you can 'flatten' them first.

    It will also lose any volume or panning changes you have made, Flatten should sort these too, although i haven't checked.

    It would be great if, in the next update, Blocs Wave included some kind of external back up utility. Ideally, something that could export a whole project file, then import it back into the app fully reconstituted. Ever since Apple helpfully prevented backing up, the possibility of losing work permanently has been on my mind.

    Or if you have left over slots, it's probably best to copy then flatten, as then you can have both chopped and non chopped if you switch between them.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Ok thanks. I'll try that.

    A back up update would be super good and is very necessary. I hope it happens soon as I'm faced with this issue after purchasing the new iPad Pro. I wanted to transfer everything from an iPad six to the iPad Pro. No luck with novation

  • When I got my new iPhone Recently, my BlocsWave projects copied across from the iCloud backup flawlessly.

    I do have extra iCloud storage. Everybody should. 5Gb as the free tier In 2019 is derisory.

    Number 1 iOS tip. Get extra iCloud storage. It’s essential! ;-)
