What's New

Version 2.0.8

We're excited to bring you this list of new features and bug fixes! Here's what's included:
- Brand new automation editor feature (Timeline -> PARAMS tab on AU or drum tracks)
- Large pads on bigger iPads!
- The mic for audio tracks can now be toggled off so that the user can record automation without overwriting the audio
- Fixed dragging sequences from one bank to another. You can now also hover any drag/droppable item over a bank number to flip to that bank, allowing for one-finger drag/drop between banks.
- Ableton Link LED in session menu now appears lit if ABL on when restoring a session
- Fixed pulldown display for 4-channel+ audio input devices (NOTE: higher channel numbers won’t work, but they won’t crash like they used to and the labeling is correct)
- Fixed pad input on AU tracks: It no longer records the pitch wheel at 0 with each hit
- Fixed crash when plugging/removing headphones then immediately adding an audio track

iPad Pro 12” User HAS Immediate Disappointment

IamSeeR

Well...let me preface. I have been a long time user of both iMPC and iMPC Pro and have been excited about this upgrade for a while. I bought an iPad Pro 12” to up my game. I almost bought the original MPC cover that was made for the original iPad because I loved this app so much. I am thoroughly enjoying the apps that take advantage of the screen space on the iPad Pro 12”. It actually feels much better making music on the bigger surface. THIS VERSION OF THE APP UNFORTUNATELY DOES NOT. The most glaring problem for me is the size of the pads for iMPC are the same exact pixel space if they were on the smaller iPads with a lot of empty grey space surrounding them. PLEASE TELL ME YOU ARE GOING TO FIX THIS - IF NOT, I want a refund.

By the way, the pads on iMPC Pro 1 scale up to the full size of the area. How was this missed on version 2?

I love you guys - If this is fixed, I’ll be able to give a proper review and feel like I can use this instrument. I’m really excited about the new features but I don’t want to even attempt playing the pads at that size. I got the iPad Pro for this reason. Heck, iMPC is one of the main reasons I upgraded my iPad. Otherwise, it feels completely unnatural to play in the smaller pads that just float in the middle of the big open grey area., Please fix so I can give you guys the review this app deserves.

Developer Response

Hey they,

Not to worry, the pads will be scaled up. And soon! Thank you so much for taking the time to review the app and let us know what you think. The initial smaller pad size was intentional, but after hearing many similar comments from our users we learned the larger pads were preferred. I hope we can get this in an update date very soon (: Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@retronyms.com if you come across any bugs or have additional questions. Thanks again! -Niki

worth the money?

90% the same as impc pro as far as useful functionality for my needs goes. A few recs: There is no ability to import Factory Sounds from Pro to Pro 2. No ability to rename Tracks. And to transfer Projects from Pro to Pro 2 you have to use the archaic Itunes File Transfer process with your computer. Perhaps the Audio and AU Track record will come in handy for some. But the midi edit and audio edit features are not as good as those in, such as, Cubasis. Just me, but there is a 32 bar limit to the Tracks view Audi and IAA recordings. So you have to go from sequence to sequence to use the track editors for Full Song edits that may span Sequences. And Import/Export doesn’t directly connect to any useful libraries for me, like icloud, dropbox, audioshare. But if you’re clever you can make things happen using Audiocopy as an intermediary. If you like Impc Pro, you’ll like Impc Pro 2 better, and maybe the $25 cost will help the developers add more Ease of Use and interoperability features. Personally, I use impc only as input to Cubasis where its ez to edit, mix, import/export. But with the new record options, its becoming more a part of my Stable.

Hi! Thanks for your thoughtful review. I can see that you're really diving deep into the workflow for iMPC Pro 2! Have you updated to our most recent version – some of these things have been improved since you wrote your review. We're currently testing a feature that allows for better workflow between iMPC Pro 1 and 2, specifically with transferring projects between the apps. Would you like to be added to our beta testing list? If so, email us at support@retronyms.com and we'll get you set up. - Taylor

Win My Heart Again like MPC 3000...

The interface looks attractive. The loop trigger by1/8th-1/128th in Perform mode is a BEAST... internal sampling, chopping, normalizing and all of the edit features looks well thought out! Almost worth forgiving you guys for taking so long to bring 2.0 to the BIG SCREEN -10.5. I’ve installed about 4gb of libraries in the iMPC Pro 2 app by dragging out the folder in file sharing in iTunes then rewriting it back in and every time I’ve tried to chop a long sample it crashed. Maybe because I dropped and dragged them into the file sharing folder then dropped and dragged it back into the file sharing section as opposed to using AudioCopy. They played just fine but when I tried to chop a sample in iMPC Pro 2 it crashed. I’ve removed all of the uploaded samples and drums and the chopping feature works just fine. I want to add pics to the libraries I’ve installed. Any way I can get them to show up like the iMPC Pro Pack sound purchased libraries? Is there a limitation of how many sounds I can have per folder? Other than that I’d love to integrate with Cubasis 2 or BeatMaker3.
