The app doesn't open anymore. I've been using this app for over a year now, I absolutely love it. But starting last night, when I touched the app icon it opened for a second and then closed back to my iPad's desktop. I've tried 50 times since last night and I keep getting the same result. I've noticed a few glitches the last few weeks. When I would record a beat, it didn't sound as crisp as it should during the recording process. When you played back what you just recorded it sounded fine, but during the recording it didn't sound crisp like it always has in the past. The second glitch I noticed recently is when I left the app to go to another app or web page, a red line across the top of the screen(from where it says ipad to your battery life) would always be there. In the line it would say iMPC recording. To remove the line I would have to shut down my ipad then start it back up. This is really disappointing because I have tons of beats that I'd hate to lose.

Make music, not neurons. Perfect ui & work flow, better than a real mp3.

If you are looking to buy this app, do it, now.
This app is the pinnacle, of track creation. Period.
Super easy to use, got a song completed, first day, learned all options first glance.

Will not confuse anyone. Will get you to work & keep you in the zone. I have tried many apps, major titles & minor, for example, fruity loops & music studio, ect beat maker, you get the point, we'll this I get, you will get. The before mention apps are all reluctantly deleted. Iam a music pro, & they made me feel dumb.
Before now, I've been anti-mpc, I am now pro-impc .

Could have 8 tracks, layering, & a folder system employed to contain & play whole tracks, after they are setup sectional . I wish to Chang my skin, to personalize.

The app is simple as musical notes, & will produce as many sounds.
I wish GarageBand was as easy to operate.

Also, look up the video tutorial, it's like am unite, & your a pro, impc'er

Similar to iMaschine, but still needs help.

Before getting immersed in iOS music production I used to make music on a PC and used Native Instruments extensively for all my sounds.

I was excited to see iMaschine as an app on my iPad (back in 2011) and did not hesitate to buy. Well, it was just ok, has lots of potential, but the capabilities have not been enhanced since (no Audiobus, ACP, nor IAA) and uploading samples is a chore (have to connect to a computer, and has to be a certain sample rate to work).

Now there's iMPC, this one is able to read sample rate, but still have to connect to a computer, no Audiobus nor IAA. Functionality is similar on both apps. One advantage iMPC has over iMaschine is that you can you can interact within your iPad, in this case with Tabletop. On Tabletop, you can as many instances of iMPC as the idevice can handleand create a complete production in the box, while iMaschine needs to send its track to either SoundCloud or Maschine on a computer to finish it out.

So, there you have it, iMPC, not perfect but close enough for beat making.
