Soft Pads was created for musicians to eliminate any dead space behind your band by providing an ambient loop that continuously runs in the background. If you have a band, a solo performer or a worship leader playing in a church, a small setting, recording or even practicing in your garage with your band, this is the app you've been waiting for to give you the full sound effect. Play it loud or soft and the quality remains.

How does SoftPads stand out from the crowd?

SoftPads has over 10 different ambient loop pad sounds to choose from that can be selected in any of the 12 keys of music. All of the sounds in SoftPads were carefully selected and designed to only be the top quality sounds/pads that are good enough to record with your music.

Select one pad or layer as many as you desire to create unique sound combinations. SoftPads allows near limitless sound options that can fade easily from one key to the next. No longer are you limited with someone else's preset combinations. Our custom sounds like Nxus, Vox and Breath can be stacked to create amazing customized tones. The options are limitless on the different ambient sounds this app can achieve!

SoftPads will still play while other apps are running.

SoftPads allows your to customize your experience with several background colors to create your own color scheme. It also includes an enhanced viewing mode that performs fabulously on stage to make the fonts bolder and stand out for easier viewing.

SoftPads allows users to turn crossfade on or off and even allows you to choose your preference between multiple layer pads or just a single pad.

SoftPads is everything you could need all in one app! No more mess of having to download mp3's or sound files or waiting hours for downloads to work. SoftPads gives you everything that you need in the palm of you hand without having to go through any hassles or extra steps. SoftPads does not require loads of electronic gear to pack in.

The perfect worship pad app! By far the best available for Android. Would love the ability to keep a split for quickly changing both keys and pads without swiping (or better yet, a setlist option). That being said, if you do worship and either don't have a keyboard player or want to "thicken" your sound, buy this today!

Thank you. The suggestion about the set list is one that we hear a lot about and have thought about adding as the first update. Thanks for the great review.

Annoying click in pad makes this unusable. Reinstalled, but that didnt help. Contacted customer support but no response. Followup after a year: I have had no issues with the clicking sound in many months. This app works great now and I love the pad sounds. As a recommendation I would love to see some in minor keys. Thanks.

Hey Tim, Thanks for your revision of your rating. To answer your question about minor keys. If you play the major pad that corresponds to the minor key, it will work. I.E., if you are playing in Am, then use the C Pad and so on. But please note that a pad sound consists of the 1st & 5th of the major chord. So you may have some natural dissonance.

I understand the idea is that its just a static background drone and meant to be simple and not meant to be tinkered with during performance but I would give it a Five star if We get more versatility. 1) EQ, Lowpass filter, XY axis kind of touch pad for morphing sounds. 2) A button that would switch/fade between two preset patches that would have different sounds or dynamics (volume/eq) for the verse and chorus of a given song. 3) a shimmer pad with a wetter reverb. 4) Proper Black theme

Got it. The morphing sounds I haven't heard suggested before. The crossfade kind of does that. The pads are pre-recorded and not generated by the app itself. So some of that would be hard. EQ is plausible. We are looking into a set list feature. Not sure what you mean by a Proper Black Theme.
