///THE WORLD OF MASCHINE
iMASCHINE is based on MASCHINE – the renowned groove production system from Native Instruments. MASCHINE is available in three different hardware versions: MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO. All come with the same cutting-edge software including professional sound library, drum synths and melodic synthesizers, and effects. The software also features a cutting-edge sampler, mixer, clip-based arranger, and visual browser.
MASCHINE STUDIO is the flagship music production system with unprecedented physical control thanks to its generous control layout, jog wheel, and two big high res displays for ultimate visual feedback.
MASCHINE is the classic groove production system with straight forward hardware workflow, 8 display knobs for tweaking instruments and effect parameters plus dedicated groups button to switch sounds fast.
MASCHINE MIKRO has the same high-quality, touch-sensitive pads as MASCHINE STUDIO and MASCHINE in a more compact format. The perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE or a tactile addition to any production or performance setup.

What's New in Version 1.2.2
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Still not fixed.
I've been a fan and an avid user of imachine since it came out. But none of the last 3 updates (including this latest one) has fixed The issue of the drum pads sustaining the sound/sample when tuning instruments such as synths, strings or any sample that is more than 1 second long on the iPhone 4s, iPad and iPhone 6 Plus while the track is playing. Even when the one shot switch is set to off, it still sustains the drum pad when the track is playing. The Sound/sample plays perfect when the pad is tuned and the track is stopped or when you initially program the pattern with the sound/sample tuned. But when the track comes back around after the loop it sustains the drum pad instead of playing it the way it was programmed to play. This needs to be fixed right away because it messes up tracks that were already finished as well. This is a five-star app but until this issue is resolved it can't be no more than one.
Best Drum Machine Ever if Only.....
Let me start by saying Native Instruments is an amazing company and puts out very high quality software! iMaschine is everything I want in a drum machine app except it needs to support inter app MIDI...that kills this program, because I can't use it in n-Track Studio Pro like I was hoping! Not to mention the "export" feature (if you can call it that) gives you 2 options. You can export to the PC version of the app, or export to SoundCloud and that's it! Essentially, I bought an app that's only capable of being a stand alone app, because it doesn't communicate with any other applications! Why no reverb in the effects list?!?! I sincerely hope the fix this in a future update...
Audiobus, at last!!!
Update: bugs happening. Sometimes the choke and/or one shot/hold features don't work. Samples tend to trigger as one shots regardless of setting. As for app in general, it's great, but conflicting. You will never fully appreciate this app unless you own a Maschine. If you don't plan on getting a Maschine, get Nanostudio. If you want added power, get Nanostudio and imaschine with the Ausiobus and IAA capabilities, you can get iMaschine sound in Nanostudio tweak-ability, and that's not bad.
Audiobus/IAA integration = 5 stars. I retract my complaints about this app as they are now invalid. I don't even care that the price dropped.
A must have app for iOS.
