Turn your iPhone into an MPC. With more than 600 samples, 47 editable programs, 80 editable sequences, and iconic MPC workflow, iMPC is the first app to bring the look and feel of the classic Akai Pro MPC to your iPhone. iMPC includes everything you need to create a beat quickly and easily, including built-in effects, plus the ability to create new sequences and record and overdub beats. Time correction from 1/8 note to 1/32T with variable swing, and Note Repeat from 1/8 note to 1/32T with latch control are also built in. The app’s built-in sampler can record samples three different ways: using the mic on the iPhone, using the line input on the iPhone, or using the multi-touch turntable interface in iMPC to record samples directly from iTunes or other music libraries.

What's New in Version 1.4.2
iOS9 Crash on launch fix.
Improved Soundcloud posting and playing
Not bad but has potential
It works well with my MPD218(if there was a better way to connect hardware + software w/o having to hold the note repeat button while plugging it in that'd be super cool). Also there are crashes every now and then when you edit the sounds in your kit. Would also be nice to have a few extra effects implemented in like reverbs, stretching and other stuff for sure. Would also be fantastic to implement some type of automation feature to control pitch, parameters of the effects. Also, maybe a way to export stems? But pretty cool overall!!! Again, has a lot of potential.
Could be better
The app definitely has problems. It will randomly crash, some features do t work, and there isn't much to do with it. It's fun just to mess around with the drums, but if I find a beat I like, I can't really record it. If I want to delete the preset track, I hit delete and delete track, but that doesn't really work. Either it will delete almost all of it, leaving some fx or something, or it wont delete it at all. There are many other problems too. I only bought this because I saw the Ableton link thing. Hopefully I will be fixed.
Ive been using this app for a long time and i have made over 200 beats so far and uploaded to soundcloud but overall this app is amazing but i recently updated my iphone 5c and it closes when i go to the pencil icon which is for customizing your kit
