Keep crashing

Please, fix the app! Every time I use the sampler and trim the sample, pressing the pad to check the sample crashes the app. It doesn’t make sense to pay for an crashing app!

Great but where is....

This is great for coming up with loops and ideas you wouldn't create using a DAW like Logic as the interface is designed for making grooves not intricate editing and I don't mind that as it keeps it raw! However I would like some of the other features of the MPC like: Pad mute so I can mute individual sounds in a sequence; song mode so I can chain sequences together; resonant filters; a decent reverb; folders for organising my own imported sounds; Audio bus support and a safer way to upgrade that doesn't give me a heart attack that I've lost my best beats!!
Another weird thing is that when I record the loops in to Logic, the tempo is slightly out by 0.3 bpm or so.... Mmmmm
Still, I have to say that this has been the app I keep coming back to as there is definitely something about the sound of it that I love!

Certainly a nice looking app, I love the retro MPC styling.
It is a massive shame though that both Akai and Native instruments have such poor i-offerings considering they are big companies with big budgets, large R&D teams and the advantage of being market leaders with years of expertise in the field of drum/beat machines so should know what their customers want, need and expect.
These apps are blown out of the water by the likes of Beatmaker2 and NanoStudio - the latter of which was developed a couple of years ago by a ONE MAN TEAM!!!
Sometimes it feels like the big boys are deliberately holding back on technologies just to prolong their marketing plan over the coming year(s). This feeling goes for their hardware too.
