iMPC for iPad
MUSIC PRODUCTION APP for iPad
Developed in partnership with Retronyms — www.retronyms.com
Turn your iPad into an MPC. With more than 1,200 samples, 50 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 iPad. 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 iPad, using the line input on the iPad, 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
iMPC Reigns superior
Open letter to Retronyms:
The iMPC app was ahead of its time...in 2013.
Unfortunately the decision to focus on the iMPC Pro, which pales in comparison to the original, has not proven successful.
The iMPC's note repeat, pitch slider, cpu performance, and output to a mastered product is far superior than its predecessor the iMPC Pro.
iMPC pushes a beat maker to think outside the box and challenges artists to 'create more using less'.
The lack of having an edit window/a visual arrangement actually pushed my creativity to new heights. The simple tools and easy workflow of the iMPC helped me craft tracks in minutes.
Furthermore, from a customer standpoint, the most valuable aspect of the iMPC was an inter-app link to SoundCloud - this allowed the iMPC community to follow, like, comment and repost in realtime to SoundCloud within the iMPC app. However, over time this feature has been unreliable and glitch-ridden.
From a business standpoint, when the link to SoundCloud was working within the iMPC app a strong iMPC community of beat makers began to grow. iMPC users saw an increase in the amount of views/plays and it was a value added - incentivizing customer loyalty.
RETRONYMS! Could we please get an UPDATE to the original iMPC app?
iMPC Pro was nice and all, but for real - its nothing but a shiny shell of the what the iMPC original had to offer.
Kindly reconsider updating the app to its full-working order.
Not bad for portable on the fly
If you are used to the standard MP functionality, u may be a bit disappointed. It's dope as far as something to do on the fly, I bought it strictly for the portability and I use it with the MPC Fly. There's only 4 tracks per sequence and there's no song mode. Still kind of cool for the enthusiast tho.
Update bug and fixes for the new iOS 9
Everytime I fill up the 250 sequences it locks me out the app and for the 57 time I have lost my beats and can you guys make a rack mount emulator that simulates the Akai “AKAI S2800i STUDIO MIDI STEREO DIGITAL. It can operate like Dropbox
