Blocs is a new, innovative start-up created by Focusrite/Novation. Our focus is to develop new music-making things for people with a wide range of technical ability.

We’re based at Tileyard Studios in King’s Cross, which is home to the creative industry's top artists, composers, writers and producers. Because we’re a small group of people, we’re able to shape our own culture and process to meet our needs. We focus on innovative products and try to connect with customers in new ways. One of our products is Launchpad for iOS, which is one of the most successful music-making apps on iOS.
