    I love the sounds on this app and it’s been pretty cool so far. I would however though want you guys to let us be able to send the loops we make to ourselves whether it be through email, messaging , etc. I’ve found it really hard to send drum loops I’ve made to myself and since i play guitar on FL (don’t have the things to record on my phone) i need to be able to send the loops from this app to my hard drive or Dropbox. Please make it compatible with newer apps and things such as email, iMessage, etc.
  • Some Glitches

    - Samples automatically removed when I try to rearrange them on custom tracks - Sample launching delayed in many cases - Note Repeat timing gets stuck on the wrong selection Overall dope beat maker for the iPhone. Amazing job done by the developers. Feel privileged to be making beat on my phone. Just wish it got the same love as the iPad version
  • Abandoned?

    Coming up dangerously close to the dreaded “1Y” since last update, from which few apps return. This needs to be updated for iOS 11. Please developer, do not abandon such a stellar app!
  • Great potential, but limited

    This app is a solid drum machine, second in sounds only to iMaschine. However, I wish iMPC worked better in the iPhone. They give the iPad version all these sweet updates and the iPhone version gets neglected. I contacted support for the app and they promise Audiobus and inter app audio is on the way, but time just ticks away...no cool update yet. All iMPC can do for the iPhone is work as a sketch pad...if you try to export a beat it does not export it as a loopable rhythm and if you export to AudioCopy the sound gets all distorted...they dropped the ball for iPhone use 😕🤔
  • Super cool and useful but kind of a pain

    I really like this and I want to use it to make music but it’s kind of a pain that you can’t record the app directly with garageband. I have a very spontaneous artistic process so having to stop and export stuff and then upload it to my phone is super inconvenient. I don’t know anything about app development, but I doubt it would be a very hard feature to implement seeing as how a lot of other apps support this feature. I did check out audio copy, but sadly I could not get it to work with GarageBand. Even so, I’d much rather be able to just record the app directly.
  • Needs some work

    Will only record one track on each sequence. And interface is a little weird. Has potential to be great
  • Piano notes and drum at the same time?

    By Aww ya tricked me
    This app used to be awesome for what I needed it to be but lately when going to create a beat, the pad both plays a piano note and whatever other sound associated with that particular pad. So Instead of just the assigned sound for one pad (ex. Bongo, clap, finger snap, hi-hat etc) it will play a piano note AND a clap at the same time and I don't know how to turn this off as I don't know how it even can about.. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
  • Needs a lot of work, it might even need a redesign

    All the sampling, menus, and editing work nicely, although at times it will cut out all audio while cutting a sample (even on other apps, I either have to restart my phone, or do some stuff in settings). The app will also crash occasionally while editing samples, this just the starting problem. The annoying thing about the iMpc for iphone/ipod is that it REQUIRES every edit to a sound/sample to be renamed as a seperate sound itself, rather than be an edit to the sound on the board, the ipad version doesn't do this, and it's really frustrating. I also don't like how I can't delete saved sounds in my libraries, you really need to fix that, seriously. The exporting is atrocious, whenever I export a sequence via itunes file sharing, most of the time all the exported audio is extremely choppy. Exporting is even more annoying because of how god awful the sound quality is (again, it's choppy). Another reason why this app needs a redesign or an update, is because of the inability to edit the quantization of drums and sounds manually. Getting rid of the 3D performance and adding a timeline would make things much easier, the 3D performance does not work well, it just doesn't. I wish this app had compatibility with garage band. impc pro for ipad works great with garage band, and is really easy (and not incredibly buggy, the ipad version can be slow at times, but not buggy). point is, this app has really great potential, more potential than the ipad app that I keep referring to, because not only is the workspace easier on ipad, it's faster and efficient, and by making the workspace easier on iphone by fixing these problems will make me want to use this app more often while on the road, just in case i forget my ipad.
  • SO useful to have on your phone

    It took me a while to figure out how to use all the features of this app. Mostly, because a phone screen is pretty small. But retronyms really did a great job of cramming this app with great stuff! There is time correct, fx, a sweet mixer, and tons of default programs to use. Can't really beat how convenient it is since it's on your phone too..
