Worship Pads Pro - The crossfading ambient looped pad you're looking for

Hello all! I would love some reviews and thoughts about my newly released app for IOS - Worship Pads Pro. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/worship-pads-pro/id1586199401

It is a minimalistic app that has a nice infinite pad in every key that is based on some of the sounds of Bethel Music and other top worship artists. Let me know what you think!

  • No connectivity with other apps?

    How does it compare to AutoPad? The AppStore description is very lacking in detail about the app’s functionality.

  • Recommendations:
    1. Expand the description to include features and functionality, including any connectivity.
    2. Include a video instead of the first picture in the App Store.
    3. Post a video here.

    This may sound rude and I apologize if so, but no one is going to pay $1.99 for an app just to give you a review without more information.

  • hello @calebj7 ,
    I bought your app and like the idea but it seems very limited . I agree with @DukeWonder we need a description for best uses of this app like what it’s designed for. I like the sound of it but when changing pads you can hear a click or the start of a loop .
    most of us here have many apps that can replicate this without that problem . and we like to connect our music apps by way of AUM Audiobus , Apematrix and other host apps .
    Again I like the sound and idea . But I think it needs more functionality unless I just don’t understand how to use it . thank you and good luck !

  • @MeatWalrus these type of apps are designed to fill out a mix by providing an ambient pad layer in the song key.

    I currently use AutoPad in my live keys setup. I like it because;

    A. It’s AuV3
    B. It runs in landscape mode
    C. It has a set list feature
    D. It sounds very decent. I add a touch of modulated shimmer to augment the sound.

    Thanks for taking the plunge and sharing your thoughts.

    I think you need to post a video on YouTube so people can hear what is sounds like. Then they might buy it. Then they can do your poll...

    @calebj7 : I too like many of the above have AutoPad, which as I understand it was built for the same purpose as your app. I have no use for it in such a context, but I have found AutoPad to be a very beautiful base for slow ambient secular pieces and would certainly take a look at competitor apps in the field -if they offered more or at least the same functionality than AutoPad already does. At minimum this would need to be AU capability so I could use it directly inside AUM, and a wider, or more tweakable, set of pads and sounds. Hope this feedback is useful to you.

  • All of the above

  • Hey, congrats on your App release! I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into this.

    For some feedback, since you asked:

    • “Pro” in the name suggests a level up from standard music apps. I would expect MIDI, AUv3, background audio performance, and access to deeper customization or settings. The version you’ve released seems like the “lite” version, which can be great but feels misleading to call it pro.

    • Market research? Others have mentioned there are apps that are similar with more features in the under $10 price point. I would consider finding ways to set your app apart from what is already available. but then again, you might find people willing to pay $2 for your app rather than $6 for AutoPad.

  • @onkey ok thanks for clarification so you don’t change the the pad sound with a chord change it’s just whatever the key of the song is in ? forgive my musical ignorance i’m still learning all this 😃 @MAtrixplan I don’t think there are any settings .I touched all around the screen looking for hidden menus but I don’t think there is one . Just the pads and and pause button.

    Can I be the first to ask what is a "worship artist"?

    Usually means someone who predominantly plays in their church and/or writes/records the music that is used at Christian gatherings and listened to by many Christians. It’s a huge market especially in the USA.

    That’s correct! Just the root and fifth of the key is generated so the pad layer will sound consonant regardless of the underlying chord. This assumes of course that the chord progression stays within the key.

  • @MAtrixplan said:

    Hi! no this app was not intended to connect with other apps. The functionality is providing a looped pad in the key youre playing in and providing an automatic fade out and fade in.

    For the name: Worship Pads wasn't available, and since it is a paid app, I figure the name is appropriate. I understand where youre coming from though.

    Market research: $2 pricepoint is significantly below any competition.
    I appreciate your feedback

    No adjustable settings on this one. Just one specific, and quite nice if you do ask me, sound.

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm curious about the click or start of loop sound. I do not get that sound on mine. I will check with a few others to see if it keeps happening! No app connectivity at the moment but I designed the app without the need to connect to other apps. Just plug and play for situations without access to ableton etc.

    Does quite a bit less than autopad for a significantly lower price but if you're looking for a looping soft pad for worship and church functionality in every key, this is the app for you!

    You seem to lack a bit of understanding here so I’ll give you a few more tips here.

    1. Don’t make the customer do the work. They won’t. Post the video here. And add the video to the App Store. This helps ensure people see it. It’s a very basic business concept.
    2. Connectivity is key to all music applications. If we can’t put this into AUM or another host to play alongside other instruments, what is it good for? Who is your target audience and when would they use this?

    You’re asking people to review something that they’d have to buy to review. You have given us zero incentive to buy as you have made no effort to actually sell this to us. I recommend doing some basic research on business and marketing if you want to create a product that people will buy.

    Looks like a very basic app. Might be good for the church guys but probalbly not for AB Forum people:

    so remove "pro" and start to make at least what autopad gives us. If You give more, it will be great

    What can I worship with this app? Or is it for worshiping pads?
