hey i like the app but it would be so cool if we could link the impc pro 2 on ipad n iphone together n mpc live i show be able to send the beat on my phone to my ipad or mpc life is like the iphone have i cloud Account so I use that account for my iPhone and iPad so so anytime I make it beatson my iPhone Automatically is on my iPad
Great little app!
by jim 183738 on 2021/01/03 20:58
Wanted to use this for mobile work but it is just a gimmick. So clunky and buggy. The workflow is a joke and I am an experienced mpc user. If you want something to play around with it is ok but good luck trying to use the packs they sell. Update: joke is on me or rather i am the joke. after i got the workflow down a bit this thing is awesome for the price. Is it an mpc live? Well no but it is usable and is a fraction of the cost. Just wrote some great music with it after learning the sound assignment system.
MPC = My Playlist Canceled
by KarlKelvin on 2020/11/28 08:13
Good luck making an original piece of music with this app. Without being able to use your own sounds/samples. This app becomes just another money grabbing toy.
Thanks Apple
by BattyRoy on 2020/11/26 21:18
Apple let me buy this twice! I requested a refund but was denied by the auto-deny bot. My nephew had my phone and clicked to purchase this AGAIN. At full price too when I had previously bought it on sale. Enjoy the extra $25.00
Please refund
by Liam Kwonn on 2020/11/15 01:22

Too many Glitches
by Anthony#2005 on 2020/08/27 13:55
I purchased this app and within a few hours it crashes and the pad does not play any sounds anymore. I have garage band and imaschine 2 and don’t have glitches like this. $8.99 for what for an app that I cannot even use, are serious?
Almost
by Dj Ed Nine on 2020/07/28 03:55
I Can manage to make beats with this, but there’s more to develop. Crashes too much and the interface feels dated. There’s other apps that are more conveniently layed out in terms of performance and workflow.
Retronyms is a joke
by Shivascreams on 2020/07/26 19:43
This app along with a string of others made by Retronyms is a fly-by-night money making scheme…If you look at all of their apps, they have huge hype and then they never develop them… They make the initial money and then go on looking for greener pastures Don’t waste your money on it. I guess bad developers kind of define the good developers…Role model this company if you’re trying to be a loser.
I like
by jazzymattnasty on 2020/07/10 22:34
Works great fro what it is making beats on the go instead of being stuck on the gram and I just save a project file and can open on the mpc x later and finish up👍🏽 only thing I would like to see is to be able to use the Splice app without hopping between apps and have to save to device then transfer to audio paste and then finally able to load up on the pads it gets annoying but like I said works great for what it is which is a phone app.

Crashes when trying to edit sounds from Audiopaste :-(
by lilyamadori on 2020/07/02 19:51
I went through sooo much work to figure out how to get my everyday recordings into iMPC as I’m not going to whip out the entire app just to record a sound, it’s inconvenient and drains your battery. So I finally get all my sounds into audiopaste, a horrible decision on inter-app partnership, but what do I know maybe that’s the only company doing that sort of thing. I can get the sounds loaded onto the pads but when I click “Edit sound” the app instantly crashes every time. This app is so close to being great I just hope it doesn’t end up abandoned like the last version.
Can’t use after updating.
by shatranj7 on 2020/06/24 23:33
I updated and now I cannot use the software. I made lots of beats that I can’t even access as a result.
Love this app!
by LevelUpDev on 2020/06/16 21:22
This is the next best thing if you can’t afford a standalone unit.
Trash
by Afriendcalledfive on 2020/06/09 23:55
Convoluted menus. No support for Apple Music sampling. Crashes when using any type of 3rd party plugin.
Super dope I love this! Boom bap beats

Decent with Issues
by dvermaak01 on 2020/05/05 19:59
I got this app specifically for the Spotify integration. However, I quickly realized it is extremely limiting. Essentially the MPC app will grab a random 30 seconds from the song and you get to sample that. What if the part I want to sample isn't in the 30 second clip MPC provides? Too bad. Not great. Please improve spotify integration. I honestly don't see a point in it right now
Thankful that updates are still being made
by @SDEculture on 2020/04/08 23:25
Love the app The update solves some major issues but lost the ability of 16 level tuning sounds. Awesome app worth the pocket change 🙏🙌✌️
A bug in the system
by angrybeats on 2020/04/08 02:51
This app was A-1. By far the best. There has been an issue with the latest Apple update that causes it to not sync up with your iTunes account. For that I give it a 1 star. Other than that, this was my favorite app.. Updated : the bug seems to be fixed and I’m loving iMPC
Needs Updates

Impc pro itunes turntable not working
by cmanzue on 2020/02/09 20:22
Overall solid program, but itunes wont respond with the turntable sampler. Still waiting for them to update for months. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
Don’t download on iOS 13
by iPhone User 1 million on 2020/01/23 21:23
Can not sample from iTunes functions crashes app every time.
AwesoMPC with some bugs.
by transcendentalaccidentalism on 2020/01/11 05:34
Crashes to be expected, but it’s gotten somewhat ubiquitous on the iPhone version. Seems like every time I start recording a drum track where the kit is comprised of my own imported sampled sound packs, I get the clipping death freeze distortion and and remains frozen until it’s force quit. It’s not with every kit I’ve made. It seems random. Some kits that I have used for years on the 1 st version of pro that work fine on the iPad version of pro2 have worked fine on the iPhone version of pro2, while some of the more recent ones I’ve made seem to cause this app death every time. I’ve dumped the app and reinstalled a couple of times, then reloaded my stuff and it just seems to make it worse (lol). Anyway —- this is getting annoying. Hopefully you will find what I’m referencing and fix it so we can fly with 5 stars ... because other than that bug it’s fantastic.
What’s Going On
by The Irishmen on 2020/01/09 01:33
First of all, I want to love this app. I’m having a few issues. What is up with iTunes not working? Why does Spotify only give you 30 seconds of a song? Seems like I have to pay for this app and pay for that app so I continue to produce and I’m not getting decent results. I ordered an Akai MPC Pro Studio. This app is supposed to be practice until I get it and I’m stuck. Anyone???
iTunes import
by Tone_Black on 2020/01/05 17:55
Now that iTunes is gone you can not import your own samples. There is a ton of bugs to work out in this app. Projects can’t be named and others. Keep your money until it’s fixed.
Fix the crash issue
by Hamid376 on 2019/12/24 20:28
It always crashes 👎
Too Buggy
by FCA400 on 2019/12/23 15:05
I purchased the app a few days ago and everything seemed to work fine, but when you’re recording from Spotify and you select chop to pad or slice loop once you click done that app crashes and shutdown, only to be restarted and nothing is saved other than that it’s an ok app tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but to no avail someone needs to fix this bug ASAP.
Key group
by bornas1 on 2019/12/19 21:16
Great app however it doesn’t have a key group without either having to create an entire program for 1 instrument to utilize it through pads or you can only use audio units... Will give a 5 star and would even consider advertising this app...
audiocopy crashes the app all the time
by aversa on 2019/12/12 21:53
this would be a five star review but everytime i use my own samples from audio paste... insta crash. please fix this. otherwise i love the app.

iTunes Sampling Bug
by @Techno.Logikal on 2019/12/09 19:59
Bought this app a couple of days ago. Mad I missed the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale I saw advertised once installed, but for $10, still a great buy from my hardware Akai experiences (2000 XL, 2500). The app has been giving me tutorials to complete each day to learn the basics of the software, but the tutorial today on Spotify sampling is basically a wash for me. It’s claim is that you can sample from both Spotify (don’t have an account or use it) or your iTunes library, but every time I click the iTunes option on the sampler page, it crashes back to the new project screen. As I produce(d) heavily from sampling records, this pretty much kills 90% of my utility in the app. It’s a one-star rating from me until this gets fixed.

Everytime i go to sample a new sound the app crashes
Product review
by Fall Warior on 2019/11/15 21:42
I gave the product 4of5 stars because the sound quality is just a bit under iMaschine. But, it makes up for that with the product offerings that are reasonably priced. IMaschine doesn’t offer many updates sound titles so edge goes to IMPC2. The amount of tracks vs IMaschine, edge again here. Overall a very big leap from the first one. Own this market and tweak the sound above or at IMaschine. Great product well worth buying. I really dig the ease of use.
Great app with two flaws
by Fx.gfdhrgdbtgjtjegvhg on 2019/11/14 05:08
When you load a song from Spotify to sample it takes 30 seconds from the middle of the song, so good luck sampling the intros to songs. Only other downside is the fact that it tweaks out and doesn't play audio at all until you restart the app, so remember to save your projects
Awesome app when not crashing

IMPC
by Kenneth.Meas on 2019/10/28 17:51
Great ideas, with major flaws. When I try to use the turntable feature and select iTunes it keeps blacking out and then sends me to the project page. Contacted the company on IG and not a single reply. It had potential that’s for sure. iPhone X.
Good can be great if??
by 03goat on 2019/10/27 12:10
Whom ever is responsible for this app than you people need to fix major bugs in it. Sometimes when u want to erase data during playback they won’t erase at times. The samples just cut out when trying to lay a sample across drums the sample is suppose to last 4 measures and it stops at 1 1/2.... good app if bugs weren’t ruining it Sent from my iPhone
Great app a lot to work with
by Creation Hub Joseph Campbell on 2019/10/22 04:34
Ithink this app is good almost to good
Step it up ❗️
by TrunLivin7 on 2019/10/15 22:50
Can’t set sample length past a minute ,also can’t import other instrumental to lay vocals over❗️BeatMaker 2 is killin Akai when it comes to IOS production and that is the facts . It’s not compatible with Dropbox A lot of other music apps that I use !! I expected more from Akai 👎
Update Bug ? Maybe ?
by KenAQ718718 on 2019/10/15 02:56
Not sure with the New iOS the App is faulty, but I noticed when using the turntable to sample from iTunes, the app shuts off making you lose all of your current progress. 5 star app prior to this, but the app is now useless if you’re trying to sample from iTunes. I’m almost certain it has to do with the apple update because the app was fine prior to that. I do know a few years ago the IMPC app became buggy when there was an iOS update. It took months before they fixed it. Hope that’s not the case again. Highly disappointed with this bug.
Produced by Ezillacapone
by Ezillacapone on 2019/09/16 20:38
I love this software tool. So great very user friendly. I make beats parked in my car when I’m on the go. It’s a must have tool.
Good for quick production, kinda buggy
by Montizzles on 2019/09/02 19:06
Does the job for making beats and music quickly, has some decent mixing capabilities and some great sound packs but it also will just skip over notes during playback sometimes.
Pleaseeee Fix the sampler!!!!
by Yoda eh on 2019/08/25 18:33
When I’m trying to chop my samples in the grid it seems like the slightest movement up or down resets all my samples back to how they were before I started dragging them. I’ve been trying to sample this clip for like 30 minutes but every time I get a few cuts I want, they all reset. Please just make the audio wave bigger wider or something so this can’t happen! Or fix the bug itself!
Kinda crazy!
by TonyN1980 on 2019/08/13 20:48
I can’t believe I have a mpc in my phone?!?! The future is here.. great job guys.. only thing keeping from getting 5 stars is.. 1. Full level mode for iPhone version.. 2. An option to expand the pads to full screen with transport/track/sequence controls. 👍💪🙌
Composition on the run!

Pretty dope, now time to get serious
by sj jaxon on 2019/06/25 20:25
This is almost there in terms of stability issues. But also needs to get fixed so that it can access AudioShare. Audio copy does not work well with user sounds and needs to stay in its lane as their sound selling software. Also, I love the Spotify sampling feature just would love to be able to access more than 30 random seconds. Pads work really well! Also, it would be nice if the piano role and track editor had dedicated buttons for getting down to editing business. It would be dope even if these had to be accessed via a Function button.
No cloud support
by Yeah443!!! on 2019/06/19 13:31
No iCloud integration to import your own samples, you have to jump through hoops and go through their additional app (AudioCopy) to import your own samples instead of importing the samples natively

Scam with the AudioCopy!!!!
by Kuleone on 2019/05/31 02:15
Scam with the AudioCopy!!!! Reading the help menu it states that you can download additional iMPC PRO Packs content from AudioCopy and there would be no change???? Did exactly what they said and guess what?!!! I was charged and now I cannot get a refund even though I didn’t download the sounds yet!!!!! Apple store says no refund!!!!!! Not cool!!!!
Difficult to use but good!
by Reclusorap on 2019/05/06 20:52
The learning curve is not so easy on this app... i wish Retronyms could eliminate all the bugs from the iPhone version cause sometimes the glitches are distracting and frustrating. Nonetheless is a cool app for sampling and programing drums!!
Akai lovers get this app
by jdijejwow on 2019/05/05 18:11
Hello Akai makers, I have the both iMPC app and the iMPC pro 2 app and I love them both. I made lots of songs on the iMPC and I would like to take those songs and edited them on the IMPC pro 2 app. Is there a way you can make that happen?
Hands down my go to drums
by Dolla$ Baby on 2019/04/30 17:12
The first iMPC was cool but I never made anything not dj Sounding with it. With iMPCpro2 i make music. I use it live from my iPad/iPhone when it’s a surprise loop sets and solo guitar to producing hood rat beats for my friends. Now with I phone u can literally have a studio in your pocket.
App is buggy
by Rez Anciado on 2019/03/15 22:50
I purchased this app to create music. However, upon opening the app, I realize NONE of the beat pads work upon opening a new project or even a demo project. I hit “New sound” under the Tweak tab and it crashes the app. I can’t place any new sounds to the pads because it crashes the app. I can’t even hear the sounds on demo projects because nothing plays or reacts. What’s up with this app?? I’m on iPhone 7 and have the phone updated to current iOS as well.
Blue wire
by Samlatt on 2019/02/25 18:49
The only thing that I find lacking is the lack of Bluetooth midi connect ability. Maybe there can be an update to the app where it will except Bluetooth midi. GarageBand uses midi Korg uses midi so why not MPC pro.? Thanks for listening.
Warning Do Not Purchase!
by TheSell-onator on 2019/02/23 21:14
Read carefully before purchasing this app. It is not intuitive and in no way replaces sequencers both in the box or hardware. Garage band is free and will give you better results and will be far more intuitive. If you do purchase it will be too small for iPhone use.
Crashes to much!
by Dubz1011 on 2019/02/08 18:57
Would give 5 star if sampler&sound editor worked correctly. Every time I try to chop sample to pads app crashes. Anytime I try to trim sample app crashes . When searching for sounds app crashes making workflow awful. If you don’t save you lose all work which is frustrating. Seems app can’t handle a large sound library.When I load sound packs from AudioCopy app crashes. Had to load one file at a time even then it would crash 2 out of 3 times. If you are using the sounds IMPC came with app works fine .when i deleted app to start over it worked fine . The moment I started uploading sounds again that’s when the problem started again. I will delete app and start over one more time archive projects as I go and see if that works. Hope they fix the crashing soon to make the IMPC pro enjoyable.
It’s like a sp404
by Devdoe317 on 2019/02/08 00:18
It does what it says it will do, it’s a lil buggy, but all in all u can make bangers with this app using only your own custom sounds. Check out d.dotsun on YouTube
Great app - Terrible file support - Not universal
by NuENEMY on 2019/02/04 16:53
You are have to go thru their ‘store’ and load via a very awkward interface. You should be able to access your libraries automatically within the program and wherever you decide to keep them, like iMaschine or any number of other audio apps. This isn’t rocket science, it’s lazy programming. You also, in effect, have to buy this TWICE if you want to use it full featured on iPad.
Nice features but crashes a lot
by Shingo Star on 2019/02/03 21:13
Whenever I sample a song from Spotify and chop it up, the app crashes as soon as I hit save. It’s frustrating being unable to save anything. I haven’t heard from support as I’ve emailed them about this issue several times now. Love the app but it’s unreliable at the moment.
Excellent music production app!
by golfnewb13 on 2019/01/21 20:35
I love this app. Just got into music production as a new hobby and came across iMPC Pro 2 and instantly new I was going to purchase it. “No ragrets.” Get this now!

Good to have on iPhone but still missing features.
by Hip1756 on 2018/12/31 01:22
It’s good to see this app make it to the App Store, but that random 30 second sampling from Spotify is absolutely useless (the song isn’t even started from the beginning). This has irritated me since I purchased this for my iPad Pro. It would also be nice to have an “Export to Ableton Set” feature. I will update this to 5 stars, even if they just fix the Spotify sampling.
Can u hook this version up to a mpd218

Why do I gotta buy the same sound packs twice on my audio copy..I have iPhone and iPad with both versions of impc2 on them and when I buy sounds it don’t unlock on both..I just paid for 5 sound packs cause the deal and it’s unlocked on my iPad but not iPhone
Free packs
by Sherdizzil on 2018/12/27 00:54
Still can’t obtain the four free packs on AudioCopy. Is anyone going to attempt to fix this problem or refund me my money?
Sample from Spotify is misleading
by -JRiz- on 2018/12/26 14:35
A random selection of playlists from Spotify appear in IMPC2 and not even all tracks on a given playlist are there. If the appmakers would just be forthright about the options all good. But as presented feels misleading, deceptive=👎
They don’t want you using you using your own samples
by El Grayso on 2018/12/22 23:44
This app is awesome except, like other users have noted, it doesn’t have the *standard* ability to connect to your Dropbox or AudioShare libraries. You have to do everything through their “AudioCopy” app which is basically their store for samples. There are a few steps and you can import your own samples, but you have to open a *different app*, then import your sample into that app, then go back to iMPC and import your sample from their secondary app.... basically cutting you off from your own library, because you aren’t going to want to repeat this process every time you want to grab one of your samples. Just let us connect to our own libraries as expected. Let your great software speak for itself and make sales, don’t put up this in-app-purchase roadblock where we have to re purchase sounds to have any ease of use. It’s a great software, but if you like using your own sounds, look elsewhere for now.
Pretty good

Sampler Bug
by KingdomHitz TV on 2018/12/20 02:17
Sampler has a bug in that won’t allow recording to start at the zero mark. Record won’t even play just stays sick at zero.

Dope app but...
by BLKNRD on 2018/12/17 11:47
Straight to the point. This is a really good app. If you used any of the BeatMaker apps, GarageBand or iMPC v1, this app feels better and you can really fine tune your project, BUT!!!! 1. It does NOT load MP3 files, just WAV at 16bit(I don’t mind 16bit). 2. To load samples you must use either iTunes or paste them thru AudioCopy. Another app to download. No direct link to File.app THATS WAAAACK AF!!!! It’s 2018, but theses two minor setbacks makes me feel like I’m using a MPC2000. Add mp3 compatibility and the ability to load files from File.app, it’ll receive 10stars.
Please add 3D Touch velocity
by automattika on 2018/12/17 02:15
I love this, but there are actually two things I want. First off, you could add support for 3D Touch velocity, since this is an iPhone-specific port. That would bring the feel and functionality of the real MPC pads that we know and love, and provide a great level of human feel. Also then we could do the cool thing with beat repeat where you crescendo with pad pressure. Also, and I’ve asked for this before, there is pad layers. That is literally the only difference from the Mac/pc version. Having the ability to multi sample a drum, and have pressure or randomization chose one of four samples instead of just the one is THE BEST. PLEEEASE DO THIS!!! Love you guys
I was really hoping for more....
by eSmit on 2018/12/16 22:36
While this app is a step up from the original, I’m already finding it just as frustrating work with as the original. 1) AudioCopy is trash. It’s interface is really non-intuitive, and there are so many other examples of app content stores that do it better - why does Akai use it? 2) so many little annoying things. If you open the window to add a sample to the user’s bank, there’s no back button if you hit that button by accident, meaning you have to restart. 3) there are far fewer sounds available compared to the original iMPC. 4) you can’t import projects/samples from the original iMPC. 5) very laggy - with 9 samples across 3 tracks, the app can’t keep up. 6) when sampling from Spotify, I can only sample the last 30 seconds of any song. 7) you can’t turn off time correct once you’ve turned it on the first time. 8) the timeline is glitchy and frustrating. Snapping to grid works sometimes, filters work sometimes. 9) I haven’t yet figured out how to import samples to the same bank of pads as a previous import of samples. If there are samples occupying the bottom row of pads, they get overwritten by the newly imported samples. I’ve resorted to just creating new tracks. I’ve been working in it ~30 minutes a day since it was released, hoping I’m just not familiar with the workflow, but it seems like the app was really just not tested adequately before release. I’ve written to Akai/retronyms 3 times about their iMPC apps and have never gotten a response or acknowledgement. I hope this review helps - I would wait to buy this until they tighten their game up 🤷‍♂️
Awesome

This is new?
by Mike1180 on 2018/12/15 05:13
This is a far less superior than its 2014 predecessor MPC PRO. Less kits. Nothing new. Ok, Akai clear all these samples ima have to use since you don’t wanna include more than 6 half butt kits.
heres some improvements ideas
by Ulizes22 on 2018/12/15 04:49
1. allow to drag time in timeline 2.fixed monitor recording only hearing sound from the left earpiece 3.make the wave form screen more wider when recording a sample 4. maybe 60 sec recording? overall this app is 10x way better than the original impc app but i hope some good updates come along PEACE✌️
disappointed
by drustin dollyah murkanStein on 2018/12/15 03:33
it’s a let down that you can only download sample packs from audio copy and none from readdle documents. this is very limiting I hope you fix this and please make the pads available in a full screen mode.
no support
by Wasteotime4sure on 2018/12/13 20:14
Yet another of those appstore apps that has no people behind it that care. Bought the prerelease and installed audiocopy to get the included 4 sample packs that were in the content store the morning of the release. However they were not enabled to access and wanted to redirect to "buy" impc pro 2 again - wrote support, no answer... about an hour later Audiocopy gets an update with the note "added support for the impc pro 2 for iphone" and a bit later the first update to impc pro 2 for iphone also claiming added support for audiocopy - go back to the content store and what do you know all 4 packs that were there are now removed... wrote support again and again no answer. Not a great way to start an app launch and hoping not to regret this purchase. Fix this and I can rate it higher but for now it's a bit pathetic to mess this prerelease offer up right from the get go.
I’m pretty happy.
by Morgman73 on 2018/12/13 13:38
So I had the original, the pro2 on my iPad which I never open. I downloaded this in hopes of it being stable and it having a quick learning curve as the track/ program or sequence or whatever baffled me and that’s the reason I put it on the back shelf. To my surprise and super relieved self this version clicked. I get it now and I’m stoked. This is much different than what I’ve been using in my iOS set of machines lately. IMPC Pro2 has a different movement and sound than my beloved GR16, Wave, Seek, ED, and the mighty set of Bram’s machines. This has easily fit nicely into my workflow and I’m happy about it. Of. Of course there are things that bug me about the iMPC but hey, this is iOS here and I’ll use whatever seem to 1st: Be extra fun to play with, and 2: Achieving good result. I’m accomplishing both on the pro2 for iPhone. Good stuff.
Mui Bien Sehr Gut 非常好 Very Good बहुत अच्छा Très Bien Очень хорошо
by bkxflynn on 2018/12/13 05:17
PLUS - It doesn’t download over the older version. Past work is still saved.
Finally an iPhone version!!
by ColbyP2820 on 2018/12/13 04:47
First of all I have always loved Akai in general. Their hardware has spawned some of the best genres we love today. Also in my opinion, Akai in collaboration with great producers, have amazing samples. I’m just a huge fan of the sounds that Akai has in their arsenal, along with the sound packs from partners. I love the new iPhone version of pro 2. The only complaint I have is I cannot seem to get any 3rd party FX to open in the app. There are also a few Inter app audio applications that show up but won’t register. Idk if it is bc it’s a feature that is newer and Akai has a few kinks to wrk on, or I’m just doing something wrong. Also saving some of my wrk has been a little tedious. However I’m sure with future updates these few problems will be addressed. Other than that I’m very satisfied with my purchase. Especially getting it half off!! I look forward to see what Akai does next.
Fun but laggy/buggy
by Superswick on 2018/12/13 04:42
App is too slow on iPhone. Sampler seems like a lot of fun but the lag makes it difficult to tell if my samples are too sloppy or not. Like I said, a lot of fun, just not very intuitive for someone trying a sampler for the first time.

Great little app!
by jim 183738 on 2021/01/03 20:58
Wanted to use this for mobile work but it is just a gimmick. So clunky and buggy. The workflow is a joke and I am an experienced mpc user. If you want something to play around with it is ok but good luck trying to use the packs they sell. Update: joke is on me or rather i am the joke. after i got the workflow down a bit this thing is awesome for the price. Is it an mpc live? Well no but it is usable and is a fraction of the cost. Just wrote some great music with it after learning the sound assignment system.

Crashes when trying to edit sounds from Audiopaste :-(
by lilyamadori on 2020/07/02 19:51
I went through sooo much work to figure out how to get my everyday recordings into iMPC as I’m not going to whip out the entire app just to record a sound, it’s inconvenient and drains your battery. So I finally get all my sounds into audiopaste, a horrible decision on inter-app partnership, but what do I know maybe that’s the only company doing that sort of thing. I can get the sounds loaded onto the pads but when I click “Edit sound” the app instantly crashes every time. This app is so close to being great I just hope it doesn’t end up abandoned like the last version.
Long overdue!
by Rian Diasporah on 2018/12/10 19:49
An update to the original iMPC was desperately needed. Don’t expect to much more than a slimmed down version of the IPad rendition. It does in fact work and if you are familiar with the workflow, you’ll see that pretty much nothing has changed except the screen real estate. Perfect for grinding out some beats when you have spare time away from the lab. In my opinion much more than an impulse buy or something to just add to your collection of apps you never really use. This is essential for beatsmiths with Iphones.
I like
by jazzymattnasty on 2020/07/10 22:34
Works great fro what it is making beats on the go instead of being stuck on the gram and I just save a project file and can open on the mpc x later and finish up👍🏽 only thing I would like to see is to be able to use the Splice app without hopping between apps and have to save to device then transfer to audio paste and then finally able to load up on the pads it gets annoying but like I said works great for what it is which is a phone app.
AwesoMPC with some bugs.
by transcendentalaccidentalism on 2020/01/11 05:34
Crashes to be expected, but it’s gotten somewhat ubiquitous on the iPhone version. Seems like every time I start recording a drum track where the kit is comprised of my own imported sampled sound packs, I get the clipping death freeze distortion and and remains frozen until it’s force quit. It’s not with every kit I’ve made. It seems random. Some kits that I have used for years on the 1 st version of pro that work fine on the iPad version of pro2 have worked fine on the iPhone version of pro2, while some of the more recent ones I’ve made seem to cause this app death every time. I’ve dumped the app and reinstalled a couple of times, then reloaded my stuff and it just seems to make it worse (lol). Anyway —- this is getting annoying. Hopefully you will find what I’m referencing and fix it so we can fly with 5 stars ... because other than that bug it’s fantastic.
Product review
by Fall Warior on 2019/11/15 21:42
I gave the product 4of5 stars because the sound quality is just a bit under iMaschine. But, it makes up for that with the product offerings that are reasonably priced. IMaschine doesn’t offer many updates sound titles so edge goes to IMPC2. The amount of tracks vs IMaschine, edge again here. Overall a very big leap from the first one. Own this market and tweak the sound above or at IMaschine. Great product well worth buying. I really dig the ease of use.
A bug in the system
by angrybeats on 2020/04/08 02:51
This app was A-1. By far the best. There has been an issue with the latest Apple update that causes it to not sync up with your iTunes account. For that I give it a 1 star. Other than that, this was my favorite app.. Updated : the bug seems to be fixed and I’m loving iMPC
Update Bug ? Maybe ?
by KenAQ718718 on 2019/10/15 02:56
Not sure with the New iOS the App is faulty, but I noticed when using the turntable to sample from iTunes, the app shuts off making you lose all of your current progress. 5 star app prior to this, but the app is now useless if you’re trying to sample from iTunes. I’m almost certain it has to do with the apple update because the app was fine prior to that. I do know a few years ago the IMPC app became buggy when there was an iOS update. It took months before they fixed it. Hope that’s not the case again. Highly disappointed with this bug.
Great app - Terrible file support - Not universal
by NuENEMY on 2019/02/04 16:53
You are have to go thru their ‘store’ and load via a very awkward interface. You should be able to access your libraries automatically within the program and wherever you decide to keep them, like iMaschine or any number of other audio apps. This isn’t rocket science, it’s lazy programming. You also, in effect, have to buy this TWICE if you want to use it full featured on iPad.
Glitch problem solved maybe
by Chris aka silver aka yung C on 2020/11/08 00:59
So I found out how to interapp add your instrument from other apps u have to select microphone unit then switch to inner app 84 phase then it works I have been with Akai since the beginning so I have played with the beat machine a lot and learned a bunch of twerks
Pleaseeee Fix the sampler!!!!
by Yoda eh on 2019/08/25 18:33
When I’m trying to chop my samples in the grid it seems like the slightest movement up or down resets all my samples back to how they were before I started dragging them. I’ve been trying to sample this clip for like 30 minutes but every time I get a few cuts I want, they all reset. Please just make the audio wave bigger wider or something so this can’t happen! Or fix the bug itself!
Good can be great if??
by 03goat on 2019/10/27 12:10
Whom ever is responsible for this app than you people need to fix major bugs in it. Sometimes when u want to erase data during playback they won’t erase at times. The samples just cut out when trying to lay a sample across drums the sample is suppose to last 4 measures and it stops at 1 1/2.... good app if bugs weren’t ruining it Sent from my iPhone
Please add 3D Touch velocity

iTunes import
by Tone_Black on 2020/01/05 17:55
Now that iTunes is gone you can not import your own samples. There is a ton of bugs to work out in this app. Projects can’t be named and others. Keep your money until it’s fixed.
Difficult to use but good!
by Reclusorap on 2019/05/06 20:52
The learning curve is not so easy on this app... i wish Retronyms could eliminate all the bugs from the iPhone version cause sometimes the glitches are distracting and frustrating. Nonetheless is a cool app for sampling and programing drums!!
Hands down my go to drums
by Dolla$ Baby on 2019/04/30 17:12
The first iMPC was cool but I never made anything not dj Sounding with it. With iMPCpro2 i make music. I use it live from my iPad/iPhone when it’s a surprise loop sets and solo guitar to producing hood rat beats for my friends. Now with I phone u can literally have a studio in your pocket.
Akai lovers get this app
by jdijejwow on 2019/05/05 18:11
Hello Akai makers, I have the both iMPC app and the iMPC pro 2 app and I love them both. I made lots of songs on the iMPC and I would like to take those songs and edited them on the IMPC pro 2 app. Is there a way you can make that happen?
heres some improvements ideas

by Cleemusiq on 2021/02/12 19:48
hey i like the app but it would be so cool if we could link the impc pro 2 on ipad n iphone together n mpc live i show be able to send the beat on my phone to my ipad or mpc life is like the iphone have i cloud Account so I use that account for my iPhone and iPad so so anytime I make it beatson my iPhone Automatically is on my iPad
I was playing smash when i got the notification of availability
by ngodoy1306 on 2018/12/10 22:50
Couple glitches while playing long samples but other than that kept me distracted from my switch for a while without even me noticing so giving props for that
Thankful that updates are still being made
by @SDEculture on 2020/04/08 23:25
Love the app The update solves some major issues but lost the ability of 16 level tuning sounds. Awesome app worth the pocket change 🙏🙌✌️

by famousDummy on 2019/07/06 17:49
Easy to use and sample everything with..Akai really stepped it up with this product.I feel like Charles Hamilton and now I got all the white women asking me to make a song about them okey dokey will do it right now..
Wack,...
by 404breadman on 2020/05/14 23:42
I have a iPad . It’s not as good as the iPad version and now I have to wait until I can afford to buy it. Super upset . Really wish I knew there are two versions ...
Man!!
by Daveosbeatz on 2018/12/29 00:01
Why do I gotta buy the same sound packs twice on my audio copy..I have iPhone and iPad with both versions of impc2 on them and when I buy sounds it don’t unlock on both..I just paid for 5 sound packs cause the deal and it’s unlocked on my iPad but not iPhone
Key group
by bornas1 on 2019/12/19 21:16
Great app however it doesn’t have a key group without either having to create an entire program for 1 instrument to utilize it through pads or you can only use audio units... Will give a 5 star and would even consider advertising this app...
Big upgrade for first version
by Dwainhr on 2019/07/13 23:32
I love it! Easy to use. I use as drum loop during our church services. Keeps everyone in time which makes me happy.
Love it
by dmoneybagg on 2018/12/11 00:57
I love it because I was still using the iMPC for iPhone then I seen this and this a lot better I’m just trying figure things out but overall I love it
Retronyms is a joke
by Shivascreams on 2020/07/26 19:43
This app along with a string of others made by Retronyms is a fly-by-night money making scheme…If you look at all of their apps, they have huge hype and then they never develop them… They make the initial money and then go on looking for greener pastures Don’t waste your money on it. I guess bad developers kind of define the good developers…Role model this company if you’re trying to be a loser.
Massive improvement

Fun, Nice Samples, Nice Layout
by totally not bot on 2018/12/10 15:51
Not even a day in and I’m already satisfied. I got half off for preordering, and now I’m making nice beats. Those 5 dollars were definitely worth it.

by Superswick on 2018/12/13 04:42

Impc pro itunes turntable not working
by cmanzue on 2020/02/09 20:22
Overall solid program, but itunes wont respond with the turntable sampler. Still waiting for them to update for months. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
Minor stuff but otherwise mad awesome
by Mia Szteisz on 2018/12/10 19:23
I love the new beat maker MPC pro too it’s awesome there are just a few minor things but just to start with is that ableton link freezes the app.
Almost
by Dj Ed Nine on 2020/07/28 03:55
I Can manage to make beats with this, but there’s more to develop. Crashes too much and the interface feels dated. There’s other apps that are more conveniently layed out in terms of performance and workflow.
Loving this app!
by PaleFace808 on 2019/07/26 16:33
MPC on the fly! Sample, cut and chop over beats straight from my phone or pad. Crazy! A couple of adapters and my ability is endless. Anywhere anytime......
Good for quick production, kinda buggy
by Montizzles on 2019/09/02 19:06
Does the job for making beats and music quickly, has some decent mixing capabilities and some great sound packs but it also will just skip over notes during playback sometimes.
Excellent music production app!
by golfnewb13 on 2019/01/21 20:35
I love this app. Just got into music production as a new hobby and came across iMPC Pro 2 and instantly new I was going to purchase it. “No ragrets.” Get this now!
Not bad!
by isitliveorisitmemorex on 2020/06/01 05:00
I would love to have the files sync with iCloud so that I can import them into Logic Pro.
Scam with the AudioCopy!!!!
by Kuleone on 2019/05/31 02:15
Scam with the AudioCopy!!!! Reading the help menu it states that you can download additional iMPC PRO Packs content from AudioCopy and there would be no change???? Did exactly what they said and guess what?!!! I was charged and now I cannot get a refund even though I didn’t download the sounds yet!!!!! Apple store says no refund!!!!!! Not cool!!!!
Overall great app
by IsaiahNYC on 2019/06/06 15:36
Really dig this version compared to the original. I’m wondering if the iPhone version is different from the iPad version.
Blue wire
by Samlatt on 2019/02/25 18:49
The only thing that I find lacking is the lack of Bluetooth midi connect ability. Maybe there can be an update to the app where it will except Bluetooth midi. GarageBand uses midi Korg uses midi so why not MPC pro.? Thanks for listening.
Warning Do Not Purchase!
by TheSell-onator on 2019/02/23 21:14
Read carefully before purchasing this app. It is not intuitive and in no way replaces sequencers both in the box or hardware. Garage band is free and will give you better results and will be far more intuitive. If you do purchase it will be too small for iPhone use.
