Customer Reviews

This app is USELESS

Needless to say I'm a huge fan of the MPC series since the Roger Linn series. I'm also in to the current hardware that has been provides for the new digital age of music making while keeping the feel of the original MPC hardware in mind . -- with that said this app is big disappointment & I actually noticed after I purchased it that it hasn't been updated in years. I would like my money back actually. This is an embarrassment on your companies behave to not take in consideration the fast paced evolution of digital music making on the go. -- what I thought would have been a convenient app to get rough ideas down turns out to be an app that crashes whenever you attempt to sample from your iPhone music library. It's a shame that you guys do not take your loyal costumer base in mind. Get it together because now in discouraged from even buying actual hardware from Akai if you put out a products that don't offer support or updates. Yours Truly, A VERY DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMER

Redeem yourselves & Update!

Please update! Needs IAA support. Should have known Akai would have done this. They let the hardware version of the MPC 2000xl die out with no spare parts on lcds and whatnot & now this app. Good one guys... I love your products, but in all honesty, what good is a product if there is no communication, updates or support available from the company. Sorry for this harsh review. But I think it's time you all see that if you want to survive in an ever growing music economy, you guys need to get your heads out of the gutter and start being as faithful as those holding on to their old beat up MPC2000XL's & stop putting so much time and effort into putting drum pads on a keyboard with little lights in it. The digital age is slowly becoming the Hybrid age. Analog is making its way back. So my suggestion is simply to be there when that time comes.

Needs AudioBus compatibility

What's stopping this app from being a great app?

1. AudioBus.
I can't explain how disappointed I was when I bought AudioBus to discover I could use all of my apps, except for this one. This was a huge blow and a setback.

2. Song Mode
Tracks, progs, and seqs are cool and are all present as they should be, but no Song Mode. It makes it extremely hard to organize everything and/or make complete tracks ready to go.

3. Better editing.
4. Really needs better touch response. I find myself full of anxiety trying to rename things or add new tracks/kits.

4. Import folders.
iTunes forces you to import sounds individually. I just want to drop folders in so my drum kits can be organized. I don't want a giant list of sounds to browse thru, it's just counterproductive.

There's a ton of bugs, glitches and app breaking hiccups. So much potential I hope you guys don't let it go to waste. Fix these things and you will have a five star app that will satisfy all music makers and otherwise.
