It was only last week that Blocs Wave arrived, it was a real surprise that Novation had created a new sub brand for mobile apps. It’s great to see this kind of focus come from an already well established brand. It’s an interesting strategy too and sends a message that mobile is really important.
If you remember their initial video about Blocs, Wave is just the start.
Their intent is to get more people making music, and that in itself has to be a good thing, a very good thing.
Blocs Wave is a great start, and I think it’s important to applaud any company that specifically launches a brand to get people into making music. That’s not to say that this is the first time it’s happened of course. Figure was (and of course still is) a brilliant app for getting started with music making without having an musical experience or expertise.
Why is this so important though? Simply because the more people we get making music the better. I’m not going to go into all the benefits of music in so many areas of life, you can find out all that stuff for yourself, but just suffice it to say that it’s a good thing, and I guess I’m preaching to the converted for the most part here.
Blocs Wave is one of those apps that I can see going down very well in schools and kickstarting music education with kids who have no interest in traditional instruments, but for whom digital music making is going to be big. The more apps like this that we have the better. The more tools we have like this the better.
So I’m glad to see Blocs Wave arrive and I’m keen to see what they do next.
If you don’t know it, then go take a look at Blocs Wave on the app store:
