Serious Production Tool Now
I had held off on reviewing IMPC Pro because it was not quite like the old hardware I used to play with. The latest updates have changed that. No matter what app I use (Gadget, Animoog, DrumJam, Samplr, Sunrizer, Ampkit, etc.), I find myself capturing the audio and loading it into IMPC Pro. The sound quality and fun of chopping up your own audio is just so compelling. It is now similar to playing with the classic hardware Akai is famous for. I still want improvements, but I will no longer just simply gripe about the app!
I am on an IPad 2 and have had overall good stability with the app. Inter app audio and Audiocopy are directly supported. So is direct sampling into the app. Thanks to open-in, you can use Audioshare to load audio into Audiocopy which is great. You can even load your own created sliced loops into a real MPC. Still needs midi, sample layering and a few more bugs removed. But it is a serious production tool now!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Kids must not read directions...
This is my iMPC Pro. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My iMPC Pro is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My iMPC Pro without me, is useless. Without my iMPC Pro, I am useless. I must program my iMPC Pro true. I must loop greater than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must "beat" him before he "beats" me. I will...
My iMPC Pro and I know that what counts in hip-hop is not the songs we sample, the noise of our bass, nor the beats we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit...
My iMPC Pro is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its programs and its pads. I will keep my iMPC Pro clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God, I swear this creed. My iMPC Pro and I are the defenders of hip-hop. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but beats!
GET WITH IT, RETRONYMS
As promised, a new rating, now that you've finally brought a useful update to the table.
EIGHT months in, without an update? Absurd.
Pulling this rating down to one. It's insulting. This is no .99¢ app. I expect ACTION.
5 stars because the app is amazing... But I expect support and REGULAR updates.
Guys, I love this app a LOT, and it breaks my heart to see such meager support / updates. Cubasis has delivered at least 10 updates, each adding functionality AND fixes. There is NO Excuse to go 5-6 months without updates. I laid down cash for an MPC Element, based on its functionality with this app. That's big money. You're making Akai look bad. An MPC app should allow line-in connectivity with current audio interfaces that utilize the lightning connector, I.e. IRig HD, Apogee Jam, etc. What is an MPC that can't take a decent audio interface? Dropbox and AudioShare support needs to be there, too. I can live w/o Audiobus.... But KEY is the ability to use current audio interfaces.
