Can’t restore purchases
by LongBeachDude on 2019/11/21 18:14
Spent a lot on expansion packs, but I haven’t been able to restore these purchases for 2 plus years :( Please fix or refund me for these expansion packs
Unsatisfied and Disappointed
by 432=1 on 2019/11/14 06:49
I own a maschine mikro mk2 which is a pain to learn and I trusted their video on this app how it says you get all plugins included in the app and what a joke it is not free so you basically getting ripped off twice for a sound pack that should naturally come and or be freely updated for every maschine whenever a new one comes out... but no they rape u on it. .15 of a star is all this best
Time signature options
by Jayjay134 on 2019/11/11 18:51
I use the app very frequently and use it not only for hobby but professional mobile recording as well and believe me when I say it gets absolutely frustrating when I try to sync it with other apps and either A: it won’t sync correctly or often(GarageBand and IMaschine) or B: I can’t pursue my ideas because Maschine has no option to change the time signature from 4/4! (WHICH IS HUGEEEE!!!)
Update
by Michex00 on 2019/11/07 21:07
Would love to see a major update. It seems as though native instruments is good with just keeping it simple. They went from iMaschine to iMaschine2 and haven’t budged since. I LOVE the drum kits. C’mon NI give us more! Maybe starting with AUV3 version of the app. PLEASE for the iOS music creators!
Love this app
by A-lazer on 2019/11/06 04:25
My father introduced me to this app and I am in love with it. It’s fun to do in your spare time! It is simple enough where I can creat a quick beat but complex enough where I can create better songs on this app than many other apps. I don’t think the app should be so expensive though. $10 plus expansions are a little annoying but other wise this is a fun great app!!!
This is garbage
by Thezoo82 on 2019/10/31 12:39
There isn’t a piano roll editor...I can’t edit or position notes individually like I can do on EVERY music production program. Unless I’m mistaken I’d really like my money back. This app is basically useless with out that feature. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I hope I’m wrong
Just get Impc
by Fastboy780 on 2019/10/29 14:07
Been waiting for a bug fix to resolve the sample not trimming issue for the iPads, no one in support or twitter reached out to me. I enjoy the app and been using for about 6 years now. But this issue is really putting a damper on my production goals. At this point I’m just teaching myself to use iMPC by Akai because seems like no one seems to care to fix this issue.
Let build on something that’s great.
by qwconsulting on 2019/10/27 01:47
This app is dope, the sound kits could be doper. Which is the reason I’m writing this review. I would like to see a sample chopping and editing add on for this app. The sequencer get 5 stars all day. Yet I’m a sample based producer. I hate having to use 5 different apps to make a beat. It kills my work flow. So it that could be something you guys create in the future that would be dope. This app will always be in my mobile productions studio. Stay golden I’m a fan!!!
Redesign please!!!
by Daghost313 on 2019/10/27 00:46
As a huuuuge Maschine user on my Mac I think app would benefit greatly from a redesign that would make it look like the computer version or at least something similar the interface is not very user friendly and I use maschine daily I love all the packs I’ve brought but I don’t use the app because it’s just not workflow friendly at all
Why has this happened?
by Djmust// on 2019/10/21 07:20
Either my phone is not installing iMaschine correctly 😂 or after the 2.2.2 update or whatever you guys recently did made the app go nuts !!! I can even open the expansion packs some parts of the iMaschine display panda don’t show on screen it’s soooo strange....I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the iMaschine app numerous time and nothing. Over all Great app loved it on my iPhone 8 but since I got the 11 something went wrong 😳
IPadOS
by Technic_ on 2019/10/14 05:55
Everything was working fine until the new iPadOS update. Now you can’t chop samples. Any update on a fix?
Error Loading
by Tripduz on 2019/10/07 17:58
Ever since the latest Apple update, my imachine2 app refuses to load anything from AudioCopy. Since that’s basically where I send all my sounds/loops/samples, this all becomes worthless. Fix it!!
It’s okay
by Apexboss on 2019/10/05 06:49
Very good app. But the only problem is that when your phone updates this app cannot keep up and I swear to god if my music gets lost I’m done with this app.
Screen problems resolved in 13.1.1
by Saint Eskimo on 2019/09/28 16:04
The problems with iMaschine 2 are resolved by recent iOS update 13.1.1
App deleted all my files
by 5cooley on 2019/09/28 00:58
Can someone please help me get my app to work, I can’t scroll through the app or select anything . It’s like the app is glitching
Not working correctly on iOS 13 now corrected in 13.1
by inferno00000 on 2019/09/24 17:45
Buttons are missing like the 1/4 1/8 1-16 etc there kinda there I can hit were there supposed to be and it works sometimes. Please fix I have all the packs use this ever day and have the actual machine software and the latest komplete software on pc. I use this when I have ideas through the day and transfer to machine when in the studio. Looks like the IOS 13.1 has corrected this issue. That’s great I can get back to work used to 5 stars
App Update
by Censor mode on 2019/09/24 16:19
Please update app for dark mode on IOS13, a lot of things are invisible.
Update
by Rahbleezy on 2019/09/24 16:16
Is this software not compatible with iOS 13. Can’t see icons on my app. Making this app not fun.
Love it! BUT
by Nickolas W. Name on 2019/09/24 04:01
Just bought the iPhone 11 and was excited to make something because it was starting to be slow on my iPhone 8. I open the app and half the interface is missing or in the wrong place. I know the phone has only been out a few days, but it’s the same size as the XR. Hopefully it just needs an update
Needs Major Update
by Weirdo Burrito on 2019/09/24 03:23
I love NI products and I’m sure there are others that feel the same way; some may even own multiple products. However, the mobile app needs some serious updates. What was once a great app 5 years ago has now starting to become obsolete. Do not allow this great product to become dated especially during a time where more creators are moving towards mobile—Maschine has serious bug issues with iOS13 by the way.
I’ve been using for years!!
by Streetking510 on 2019/09/23 16:01
However this most recent iOS 13 update ruined the interface of the app...I can’t really see anything and resume all the work I be been doing...please fix....and the only thing from making this app perfect is that there should be more FX and the option to have more fix being used at a time and at once.
Update
by nicolas dncsn on 2019/09/22 18:27
After upgrade ios13 i got some problems with app please fix it
Many buttons and controls not visible
by djloving on 2019/09/20 06:27
Hard to tell what I’m doing tapping on random parts of the screen. I can tell from the screen shots that there are buttons missing. Maybe it is not iOS 13? They better update quickly - as it stands a waste of $10!
Needs to be brought up to date...
by LazyOne23 on 2019/09/16 15:37
Sounds are great and very easy to lay out a track but needs AU3 support...
No audio from latest update
by Moneyd00 on 2019/09/15 22:48
The most recent update has made it so iMaschine 2 will only play through a Bluetooth connection or headphones. There is absolutely no sound or triggers when I press play without any sound accessories connected.. not sure what’s happening.. I have always used this program ever since iMaschine came out and this has never happened before so I’m kinda bummed.
Where’s imachine3?
by KĀEPH on 2019/09/13 07:31
Just asking...mobile producers are here to stay, charge a little more to get more im with it...
Disappointed
by SevenOh3 on 2019/09/11 17:01
I wanted this to have the arrangement feature that the actual program has, but you just have to use this like all the other free drum machine apps. No arrangement feature makes me wish I could return this.
Why!!?
by YNG228 on 2019/08/26 15:18
I paid for this app and a good bit of sound packs and now it will not update or allow me into the app why..?
Love it, but could you add....
by ishootemup on 2019/08/24 07:47
I use imaschine 2 religiously and love it! But I wish there was at least was a way to get sound FX for individual sounds instead of affecting the whole kit. And if you could add more tracks instead of just 4 to use.
Possible added features similar to the DAW version.
by Shlozen on 2019/08/21 21:11
Love the app for years now. I only wish there was a way to change pitches on a pad for multiple tones within a song without having to use more pads. As well as when adjusting the tune level or any levels for the fact if there are visible numbers to see to match different pads or changes to match without guessing until you get home and use the Maschine Studio. Last some how incorporate the slice feature and the loop feature to auto sync samples for perfect timing as well as from a 110bpm to sound the same as it did at 83bpm like the DAW version. I hope any of these could be one day added or all. Thanks for the great app and hardware/software to love using!
Pretty good except...
by Flame 1 aka J.Flizzo on 2019/08/14 11:53
This app is amazing. The only thing I would add is bouncing songs to all DAW’s as WAV files. At least have tracks bounced over separately in any workstation ex. Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live...when this happen it’s 5 stars from me!
I’ll give 4, but brothaROD is right.
by kswanca on 2019/08/12 02:06
NI I love your incredible synths. This app is ready for an update.
App still crashes
by Hard Nocz on 2019/08/09 07:11
Been a user since The original apps launch and honestly once 2 dropped it’s always crashes. Lack of updates also is annoying. Also i have downloaded the new update so please don’t respond with generic reply. Using iPhone 7+ and IPhone x latest iOS Update....
Basics Missing
by Applesnoranges99 on 2019/08/08 16:05
Good overall app, with a few important pieces missing. First, this needs to have at least 8 tracks instead of 4. Second, the project needs to follow the cursor in all modes. Third, we need to be able to start the pattern from the bar that is selected. It seems all iOS groove box apps are limited in this way.... which just blows my mind, because these are MAJOR limitations!... and can easily be fixed, (see any older akai mpc). This app (and many others) could be great with just this small redo. Be the first on the block NI!
Nice
by Tenemec on 2019/08/03 17:15
I lost everything and still repurchased I like it the much Anyway to avoid this again? Or is this part of the deal
Soundcloud Crashes.
by bubblez741 on 2019/07/30 05:39
ive had this app since it came out and it ran fine, now it freezes my screen and crashes the app whenever i wanna post it somewhere.... still a constant problem.
App Stopped Working
by jaclynherrington on 2019/07/22 23:00
I love Native Instruments and I love the sounds available in this app. I think this app is one of the best out there in terms of being able to create something quickly. But I’m extremely annoyed. After a year or so the app has stopped opening up. I deleted and re-downloaded but that only bought me another day of use while erasing all my music. Please fix this app NI!!!!!!
Cannot open this app
by Eat 25!!! on 2019/07/22 21:41
I’m a big fan of this app and this company, I’ve used this since high school and made a ton of fun stuff on it. But for the past year or so, I haven’t been able to even open the app. I don’t want to delete it and lose all my projects. Can someone tell me what to do here?
Great app
by Jcoke1 on 2019/07/15 17:34
Great app, I think this app would be way better with more sound filters.
Good app, but the keyboard doesn’t fit the screen
by Makhlouf Makhlek on 2019/07/14 11:52
Makes it unusable to write melodies / progressions
IT DOESNT WORK After Updating to 2.21
by Willa Beez on 2019/07/10 12:13
i have had imaschine since the beginnings i have purchased all the in app packs and I CANNOT OPEN THE APP FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS. deleting and re downloading doesn’t work either. I AM FED UP NATIVE INSTRUMENTS DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS !!!
Crashes
by IIIRDPOWER MUSIC on 2019/07/10 07:46
Crashes every time I can’t open it on iPhone at all smh and I am running the latest software version 2.2.1 on an iPhone 7 this has been persistent and I don’t want to delete and reinstall because I will loose all the music I have created. Furthermore I don’t want to deal with such an unstable application.
Great, doesn’t crash on startup
by Doors54 on 2019/07/10 03:36
Amazing
Crashing, this app is bunk
by WhoIsRod? on 2019/07/09 23:23
Auto-updated, now I can’t access any of my music! Edit: They updated it and now it opens, but restored and installed purchased instrument packs but they aren’t restoring so none of my projects will play.
Good, but very flawed.
by nick_ewald on 2019/07/09 19:47
There have been improvements made to this app over the years, but very minimally/few and far between. Recently, the developers resolved an issue I was having which I appreciate a lot. Overall, it is a good app, but it needs an overhaul. I love incremental updates, but this app has been “business as usual” for a bit too long. Needs to be refreshed in the UI department as well as under the hood/more features, etc..
3/5
by nick09990 on 2019/07/07 20:19
Good producing app but the samples are pure garbage, even the extension samples
Abandoned ware
by ios producer on 2019/07/06 02:57
This app hasn’t been updated in years. This last update was just a fix on compatibility. Get it together Native Instruments.
STILL CRASHES
by dwayne-ii on 2019/07/05 23:04
haven’t been able to use this for years because it won’t stop crashing on my phone. PLEASE UPDATE!!
Good app
by Victor Hyde on 2019/07/03 06:46
Finally works! I hope it will not crash on iOS 13 ;)
Awesome app
by djphatjive on 2019/07/03 01:54
This all was actually updated today. Love this app and a have been using it for a long time. Glad to see they are still thinking of us.
App doesn’t even work
by Falcon148 on 2019/07/02 07:08
Had this app for over 3 years and they don’t update the app as often as it should be . I can’t even open the app and it’s been like 3 months since I can remember since I was able to open it . No updates and because of that , i guess i lose all my saved files .
I want my Maschine back
by DJSobriquet on 2019/07/01 06:23
Crashes. I can’t use it anymore. iPhone X updated os
Love it but it needs more!
by mcflu48 on 2019/06/30 16:33
Most of the reviews are correct and I agree with them. The app needs to go all the way though. I want to add effects on individual sounds, not just the whole track all the time. I wish it had more than just four tracks but I have been making due. I would like it if you could export straight to your iPhone library directly. Bring back the Traktor DJ app for iPhone. I can not stress that enough! I make most of my projects on the go and don’t have a iPad or laptop with me. These apps are essential to my mobile work flow.
App Force-Closing!
by Psy Buo on 2019/06/24 18:42
I’d been using this app no problem for about a year now and I have never had any problems except for recently when the app force-closed after updating my SE. If anyone else is having a similar problem, please let someone know that can help.
Crashing non stop
by drum jihad on 2019/06/22 17:41
Ive been using the imaschine since the first one came out. Been a huge fan of it since day one. But for the past few months its been closing non stop, and now it wont even open at all. FIX THIS PROBLEM
TRASH
by 4483828299292 on 2019/06/21 13:41
I paid for my app and all it did was crash thanks I machine
Amazing app, but...
by TrevBarnes on 2019/06/20 19:45
It seems NI doesn’t have an interest in continuing with this app. I love using it when it’s not crashing. Please work out these problems and listen to your reviewers. Everyone seems to love this app but you guys haven’t updated anything in 2 years, please help us out!
I love this app
by Qillab on 2019/06/18 22:57
First off im bias because I use the Maschine groove on my computer. But this is the best beat making app that give you solid user friendly tools, but room for advanced ideas (or for the start of advanced ideas) But where is the support for this app. There are days i lose beats because the app cant open. I have more than enough memory and this is the only app that does it. I have turned off and on my phone to retry. NOTHING. I feel this is very basic bugs that can be fixed. There are new expansion packs to download but cant use em because the app wont open. And if it does. There are missing tracks. This is losing to the garageband and other beat apps. Im disappointed.
Best app to own for mobile beat production
by Perskescious on 2019/06/16 06:51
And it hasn’t worked for the past year. Just keeps freezing restarting or won’t even let me open the app. I’ve reinstalled multiple times deleted and re-added all purchases and still... nothing. It’s like it’s been abandoned by the developers or something
KEEPS FORCE CLOSING
by kayybug22 on 2019/06/13 20:56
Everytime I click on the app it force closes!
No update yet?
by GzUpHookie on 2019/06/12 04:30
I swear it’s been like a year since I’ve been able to successfully use this app without crashing or not even opening at all. Please fix, people spent money on this app supporting your pockets
This app does not work anymore
by angel123252 on 2019/06/11 01:10
Ever since I’ve updated my phone the app does not open anymore. It just shows the loading screen, then it goes to the home screen. I have about 30 beats that I’ve made on this app, and they took me about 2 years to make...please fix this ASAP
Well that was $10 down the drain
by Jayebrave on 2019/06/09 21:41
It keeps CRASHING. It won’t even open up. This is crap. Ten dollars WASTED.
Can’t even load the app at this point
by JSanderson on 2019/06/08 09:03
RIP iMaschine 2.... might be time for IM3....
Amazed
by SwoleJoel011 on 2019/06/07 21:42
Honest this has been my wheels for over two years and I’m never turning back from music for as long as I live. Great app and numerous ways to use so many sounds on kits, or keys. I’ve got to say I’ve lost countless projects due to the fact there is no account system or cloud to save to.. how I reflect that I should’ve sent them out at least somewhere.. but is there absolutely no way getting them back? Are they actually gone? Anyways I will always own this app as long as you guys are available. Mobile studio like this is game changing. Even on my iPhone 5se I surprise people with what this app does. Thanks a lot for this.
Amazing app but crashes before startup every time
by Car stank on 2019/06/07 01:14
This app barely ever starts up without crashing and developers have done nothing to fix this
Update where and when
by Stealthdaybe on 2019/06/05 05:00
When is there going to be an update????
Great App but now crashes on startup
by Shopanpro on 2019/06/04 23:53
I have an iPhone X and the app just crashes every time I start it up now I’ve got over 100 beats saved and I can’t listen to them anymore and only close up half the time
Not opening
by lelandlucky on 2019/06/04 07:48
I have a brand new iPhone and just bought this app and its not opening . Did I just waste 11 dollars ?
Update is definitely needed
by Onxykid87 on 2019/06/02 18:26
Just do everyone a favor and keep updating this app. We’d love to see more improvements!
WTH
by Fcydhush on 2019/06/02 13:58
my app won’t even open, i just bought it I WANT MY MONEY BACK
No longer works
by Boxmuncher619 on 2019/05/30 22:37
That app was good when it was kept up to date but now it no longer works with the new iOS on my iPhone 8.
Fix the Crashing Issues!!
by MYchickenhiccups on 2019/05/29 17:46
This app is great for making music on the go, but half of the time I can't even open the app because it crashes whenever I attempt to open it. Please fix this and I will leave a 5 star review!!
App problems
by iTZyABOiDWiLL on 2019/05/26 16:29
Idk why out of no where the app wont open it just closes out everytime , i brought alot of sound kits and really use this app its a mpc for ur phone is there anyway to fix this ??? @_d.Will on IG if anything plz let me know
Won’t Open
by BetterNetRocks on 2019/05/25 18:43
I bought this app for $10 about two years ago. Now it won’t open, and it won’t start or run. After 39 seconds of the start up of the app, it just closes. Pretty much got ripped of my money. Only reason why there are two stars is because when I could open it worked fine and was kind of fun.
Crashes during startup
by 10Rad on 2019/05/23 17:44
Update this please I use the app alongside my equipment regularly. It hasn’t worked on my iPhone X since iOS 12 crashed frequently for iOS 11. I’m so disappointed I’ve spent so much time and money with this app I love it for quick ideas. A whole new iM3 would be incredible but all I ask is an update to iM2 so I can use it again.
Solution for APP not opening/running
by iamshmacked on 2019/05/21 22:11
The app will force close or not open if your phone is on Low Power Mode. Turn off Low Power Mode and your app should work perfectly fine
Does not launch
by DannyRojo on 2019/05/20 04:41
I haven’t been able to work on maschine because it doesn’t launch when I want to use the app.
what happened
by Desjardin CG on 2019/05/18 23:57
app keeps crashing doth thou hast an update? my imaschine 1 app is still alive and kickin
Doesn’t work anymore!?
by skinnytanner on 2019/05/17 16:31
I bought this app about 2 months ago and loved it a lot. But for about 3 weeks now. The app doesn’t load at all. It just sits on the loading screen and never does anything. I deleted and reinstalled it but still nothing has changed. Very disappointed I spent $10 for an app that worked for 1 month. :(
Imaschine 1
by Illmanik on 2019/05/16 22:49
I have purchases in the 1st gen of this and I’m guessing that I can no longer use those purchases with version 2 i have tried to restore purchases and it says error every time can someone help me out
Doesn’t work
by SB3334 on 2019/05/15 05:00
Crashes upon opening. Hasn’t worked in months
Please add more tracks for layering sounds
by Daspeiker on 2019/05/14 18:58
I give it a four because I feel limited when only being able to create ideas using 4 tracks on the go and trying to fit as much sound content as I can into it as I can. It would be nice to be able to mix additional sound content separately too. We are there with mobile applications working as “DAWS”. This would be an excellent upgrade with all the sounds I have purchased though this app. Cmon developers.
I’d like a refund
by King Moon Racer 420 on 2019/05/13 21:09
I have an iPhone X, however I’ve only been able to use this app once. Every time i try to open the app it crashes. I’ve tried turning my phone on and off and nothing helps. I’d either like a working app or my money back.
Great but.....
by all my names were takin on 2019/05/13 00:13
I use this everyday. I love it, once I learned how to really use it I was off and running. But the app won’t open sometimes more then it should happen, is anyone manning this thing? I hope there’s an update soon too it’s like they forget about it for years at a time. All in all I love this program but get it together.
Woooow
by Omegadjdududeufieid on 2019/05/11 12:39
So I redownloaded the app after awhile of not having it and every time I try to open it it just closes and I can’t use the app. Idk why it always closes EVERY TIME I open it
Expeditiously
by STG it's ZDV on 2019/05/10 16:24
I am a big fan of native instruments, especially iMaschine 1, but this app force closes waaay to much. I still uses it, but NATIVE INSTRUMENTS.... please fix this, expeditiously...quickly!
The most forgotten underrated Music App
by J'orie on 2019/05/02 00:35
The love this app but recently it’s been crashing on my iPhone. I’ve made over 100 beats using the app. The last several weeks I haven’t been able to open the app. The app is very intuitive I would rather use iMaschine iPhone app than any other beating making app. Hopefully the bugs can be worked out sooner than later.
Lost projects
by Madsci23 on 2019/05/01 02:44
Hi, the app crashed on my iPhone XR and I had to download it again but all of my saved projects are gone. How do I recover them?
iMaschine 2
by AlWaltonMusic on 2019/04/30 00:43
I like it most because of its diverse sound library! I would love to see more tracks added to its functionality. I need at least 16 track recording capability for a 5 star rating.
TURN OFF LOW POWER MODE
by Hęłłö on 2019/04/28 09:31
I’m only writing this review because i hope it’ll help someone else. I found an old support chat from Native Instruments and seen the customer service account recommended turning off all battery saving settings. It immediately worked for me and has so ever since. Hope if works for other as well! Working on iPhone 8 Plus 4/28/19
Disappointed
by MCillfated on 2019/04/27 15:55
Can i get a refund?!? The app will not open, it closes 10 secs in to opening up 😡
It hurts.
by Joagaiivhvj on 2019/04/25 00:10
Let me start off by saying I really love this app. I do. But it crashes so often and sometimes for days at a time I can’t open the app.
Mediocre, barely works.
by Taizukujin on 2019/04/21 06:40
Most of the time it won’t even open. When it does, I can make something cool, but the fact that it barely functions is horrible. Can’t give you higher than a 2 due to this. Would be a 4.5 with minor issues.
Awesome app except compatibility.
by Parker holl on 2019/04/20 00:55
Please update app to make it compatible with iPhone xs max. It freezes on opening screen every since I upgraded my phone. I don't want to lose a awesome app like this one.
App Keeps Crashing
by Xtrajazzie on 2019/04/17 13:28
How do I get a refund. The app will not load and keeps crashing.
Sad
by Zaytoven jr on 2019/04/15 07:38
I wish I could get a refund FL mobile has better platform and more to offer waste of my money 😡
Crashing more often than not.
by mr.grench on 2019/04/11 21:05
This app was incredible before. It was perfect for “sketching your ideas”. Now it just crashes
The App That Time Forgot...
by brothaROD on 2019/03/16 01:40
This app is good for what it was intended to do: get done rough ideas for songs and tracks using quality (44.1 kHz and 16-bit? SERIOUSLY?!!?) sounds/samples. But two years or so and countless soundpacks later, I’m looking for a swing function that DOESN’T affect all 4 tracks, MIDI support for playing keyboard parts (because large fingers don’t work well on small keys), and addressing a bug that causes the app to crash after saving custom drum kits (ever since iOS 11!!). I also agree with another reviewer who mentioned that file management (as well as importing and exporting projects to something OTHER THAN MASCHINE, which is something many of us DON’T have) needs to be better and more integrated. It’s sorta “bassackwards” to develop all of these soundpacks (again...44.1 and 16?!!?) and ignore the framework and usability of the app itself. I mean, thanks for the addition of effects and all, but at this rate, NI shoulda added this app among their numerous updates and additions to their arsenal of products across the board. Maybe an iM3 wouldn’t be too much to ask these days...?
This App is Good But Needs Improvements
by D*7 on 2018/12/18 11:14
The number one thing needed is cloud support. Actually all of their product would benefit from cloud services that way you would be able to sync all projects cross all your devices and their products instead of needing work arounds when changing devices or want projects for the computer app or vice versa. Also they need to update this for iPad Pro 11” because there are big boards around the app. I don’t think they update this app much because it seems like they aren’t trying to improve the app in general because they know it’s good. But the thing is it could be better with small changes that could drastically change the user experience. If they could fix those complaints this app would be A+ because outside of those complaints it’s really good. It’s a slightly simpler version of desktop version which is a good thing on a mobile device.
Amazing!
by Young Qeyse on 2017/05/09 15:20
I had been contemplating getting this app for some time because I didn't know how fluid it would be far as making beats on a mobile device but after reading reviews and taking a chance, I was amazed. The interface is smooth and looks great. There's no lag and it quantizes sounds perfectly. You may struggle at first but once you get going. It's hard to stop. What really makes this app great is the ability to export this right into Maschine on your computer and pick up where you left off to do even more. By no means is this app perfect or meant for full production but if you're out and about and got an idea come to mind, look at this as a sketch pad to get those ideas out, transfer them, and go in more once you get home! Also you can get all the expansion packs separately for one price of $9.99. Which is a great deal so you can't beat it!
Good....but...Still much to be desired
by viasangp on 2016/11/17 13:50
Many see this as just a scratch app...yes it is,but why make us all suffer. What do I mean? As an owner of too many NI tools to mention, this app is just scratching the surface with its current state. I owned version 1 and upgraded to 2 immediately. I've been waiting for portrait mode in order to use the entire screen real estate. I've also been waiting on a proper arrange window.... Like that of the MPC Pro app....what gives? Can we also get more groups and 16 levels? Please? It would really help when bringing it into the $999 piece of gear I already own. I love the MPC App, but guess what? I'm using maschine....it would be very helpful to have similar features. I'm loving all of the updates, but they seem to come quite slowly.
Crashes often... decent when it doesn’t.
by zeLrsn on 2018/12/25 19:26
I’m honestly disappointed in and with native instruments. For how many new sound packs and features they release throughout a year I feel like iMaschine 2 should run WAY more smoothly than it does on my 7 plus. I can never rely 100% for the app to even open, often times it’ll show the start screen then just crash. Funny enough, it’ll be there in the background but I can’t open it. I’m often stuck with force closing the app and trying to restart it but that rarely works. I’ve deleted the app several times, losing projects in the process, only to reinstall and nothing works. I’ve been a native instruments user for quite a while, but honestly, I’m over their slow to no response customer service and glitchy app. I haven’t even described how limited the app is, which can be cool for creativity, but c’mon native instruments, this app is begging for an update. 2-stars and I’m being generous.
SETLIST For onstage musicians! Reverb!!!Thanks for listening
by Oilman dry on 2016/11/17 16:21
Great app. I'm a drummer and I actually use this to loop my click tracks during church service. I can also adjust tempo on the fly of course. The Reverb that was just recently added to the app is great too for dynamics that I can actually use during service in the loop helps create a better worship experience. I'm hoping the developers pickup on this review and also add a SETLIST. I've got so many tracks that i take too much time finding the next track, I actually end up creating a pause in service that's a little too long for what I would like to achieve, and that's smooth and fast transitions. Especially because I'm controlling it and sometimes my other hand still needs to be busy playing. Thanks!!!
NI, you there?
by Average Mexican on 2019/02/14 10:46
I sunk a decent little chunk of cash into this app, its expansions, and the previous release, and it won’t open at all! All the projects I had been working on aren’t accessible! Every time the app opens, it crashes before I can get to the workspace. I’d really like to be able to use this again, it was perfect as a go-to when I wasn’t at my laptop. But now that I haven’t used it for a while, I’m starting to notice what others are saying in terms of it needing improvement before I even had this issue. Hopefully NI doesn’t forget about this one! Please don’t make me buy another 20$ (30 something including expansions I copped) app lol, just fix this one 🙃 I really hope your pricier products don’t get abandoned like this one did
Possible added features similar to the DAW version.
by Shlozen on 2019/08/21 21:11
Love the app for years now. I only wish there was a way to change pitches on a pad for multiple tones within a song without having to use more pads. As well as when adjusting the tune level or any levels for the fact if there are visible numbers to see to match different pads or changes to match without guessing until you get home and use the Maschine Studio. Last some how incorporate the slice feature and the loop feature to auto sync samples for perfect timing as well as from a 110bpm to sound the same as it did at 83bpm like the DAW version. I hope any of these could be one day added or all. Thanks for the great app and hardware/software to love using!
Best 4-Track BeatMaking App
by freakwithamachine on 2018/12/27 08:29
Like many of the best apps out there, the user interface seems simple, but it hides so many Amazing features under the hood. While only allowing 4 tracks and up to 4 patterns per track...there is so much you can do within those parameters. Each pattern can be up to 32 bars and each track in pad form can hold up to 16 sounds. You can even adjust the panning, volume, and tuning of each sound. You can combine the patterns to create an unlimited number of “Scenes” for your masterpiece. There’s no excuse for not creating great music on this App. Native Instruments, please do not abandon this app. Please update it at some point soon, so that it may be usable in upcoming versions of iOS. Thanks!
Pretty annoying on iOS 11
by vegathavillain on 2018/01/02 18:05
UPDATE FOR IPHONE X YALL HAD ENOUGH TIME. I DIDN'T SPEND OVER 20 DOLLARS ON THIS APP FOR ZERO UPDATES, I UNDERSTAND YALL JUST DROPPED NEW HARDWARE AND ALL THAT BUT LETS GET THIS DONE. Overall, an AMAZING, AMAZING app. Super intuitive and sinple but After having it since launch I still have a few gripes: - still no number sliders so I have to guess and listen to see if a sample is pitched the same or at the same volume. ( cmon bruh) - no way to shut off 3D Touch in app, so if I’m hitting a pad I might accidentally screw up recording because the app thinks I’m trying to use a 3D command. ( common sense function bruh) - on iOS 11 when loading a sample sometimes the slider glitches - still no way to stretch samples (BeatMaker has this and more so it’s definitely possible and there’s ZERO excuse) - no auto chop which on an iPhone app would make things WAY easier than chopping samples then still having to go and manually load each one. ( also something beat maker has) While it’s my go to app and has been since the first one, it’s super limited for no reason. I actually went it and bought a Maschine Mikro because I love this app so much and it’s collecting dust because this is so much easier to use, but you guys shouldn’t limit it like you are, I would rather have these simple functions than a new beat pack every month.
Amazed
by SwoleJoel011 on 2019/06/07 21:42
Honest this has been my wheels for over two years and I’m never turning back from music for as long as I live. Great app and numerous ways to use so many sounds on kits, or keys. I’ve got to say I’ve lost countless projects due to the fact there is no account system or cloud to save to.. how I reflect that I should’ve sent them out at least somewhere.. but is there absolutely no way getting them back? Are they actually gone? Anyways I will always own this app as long as you guys are available. Mobile studio like this is game changing. Even on my iPhone 5se I surprise people with what this app does. Thanks a lot for this.
Good but
by Chris 364588 on 2017/02/10 16:44
I really like the idea of this application but have only used it to capture real rough ideas. Considering the touch interface on phones and try to get the timing right one of the biggest things that I think would really take this app a lot further would be truly being able to edit the notes or at a bare minimum being able to quantize after recording. Please please add an update that at least gives the ability to quantize after recording. I think this App would be so much more useful with either a real editor or post recording quantization.
Thank You "NI"
by GameCentralHQS on 2016/10/30 00:44
Reverb! Such a nice addition. Still a lot more things that can improve the mobile capability of this app that doesn't contest with in Fruity Loops Mobile Studio. Id love to see a option on the next update involving a 1/64th for creating a more intuitive beat for on the go and also you guys should add more than just 4 tracks!!!! Maybe a couple more would spice things up a bit. Instead of just limiting this app, expand it and show off the potential that this easily usable application can put on the table. For 5$ it is still quite a steal! But until that day there is a 1/64th option for more intuitive beat creation on this app it will always remain 4 stars.
best app to start with.
by nextxlife666 on 2018/12/30 09:02
Got this app for fun, because I was far from having enough money to actually be able to make beats. after making some pretty cool beats off this app alone, it convinced me to look into Native Instruments even further. Now I’ve got the Maschine Mikro MK3 and I was able to expand on the beats I had made on my phone even further. I would definitely say this app sparked up my creativity for making beats, and was a major step in getting a feel for maschine software. As stated in another review, this app can very much be a useful “sketch pad” for ideas that you have to work on in the future.
Good app!
by Chucksteroonerooski on 2018/02/18 15:20
Edit: app crashes and won’t open on iPhone SE half of the time! Please fix! Original review: This is a cool and great sounding app. Here's a wish list of features for NI to include in next update: 1. The ability to add a fade to the end of samples to reduce noise and the occasional "click" at the end of user made / chopped up samples. 2. The ability to fine tune the tuning of a sample with an actual numeric value so that multiple chopped portions of loops could all be tuned to exact same value instead guessing with the visual slider. 3. Actual EQ for individual samples instead of just the filters available for tracks now. 4. The ability to separate stereo samples into two separate mono samples that can be panned anywhere in the stereo field. Thanks for a cool app! Look forward to more updates and sounds!
Excellent app! If you have Maschine you should get it!
by Hmillstone on 2017/07/10 17:26
I have almost all NI product (Komplete 11 ultimate, Maschine studio, Maschine jam and 16 expansions) that being said. I really recommend to have this app as well. If you are working, on your break, airport, etc... you can put some of your ideas together and then export it to your Maschine and keep working on it. At the beginning I purchased before having all NI products that I have now and I didn't know how powerful and convenient can be this app. Also, is easy to use! Give it a try! Get the expansions as well.
Why limit it?
by Fretless33 on 2017/04/16 14:05
This app to me is more than a scratch pad for Maschine. It would be nice if they would add core MIDI to this app, so I could play it with my MIDI controller. The only way to record on my iPhone with this is by using Audiobus and tapping live with my fingers on my phone. If I use a loop I programmed then the export feature is nice, but my music doesn't always have looped drums! This app has some of the best sounds available with a huge library from which to choose, but it has been held back by making this a "stretch pad" when some of us don't have the PC version. This app is solid, but needs some advancements.
This should be free
by chaseisbrown on 2018/06/07 20:26
While the ability to continue or finish projects from the computer is very innovative, the basic elements that distinguish Maschine are absent. Working with iMaschine is very difficult in that it barely functions or even resembles any similarity to the real deal. It really feels like more of a novelty item or a toy than anything. There’s not even a traditional piano roll feature and the sliders are very difficult to gauge and control. Really could be much more of a useful tool if it was even hardware compatible. The even the most basic functions and fast workflow that make Maschine 2 such a powerful tool are simply not present within this application. Hopefully in the future it will become worth the money.
Lost all my projects
by sincerely disappointed on 2018/07/08 00:10
This used to be a really good way to sketch out ideas and get rough songs together, but support has clearly been cut and it has been extremely buggy for the past year. I’m devastated that I’ve lost ~100 projects and am left with an app that is now unusable and that I sunk money into for all sorts of content. Recording samples causes it to crash, certain user kits make it crash... pretty much most things make it crash and you risk the program getting so buggy it won’t start for days on end. Awaiting some support from NI I’m getting the projects back so will loop back and update this if necessary, but even outside of losing the projects this has been very buggy. Love maschine on my Mac and am bummed the experience hasn’t been up to par on mobile.
Great App for Church Musicians
by IsraelARB on 2017/12/05 22:15
This is a great app for making click tracks for a worship setting. I was using iMPC but the sounds on iMaschine 2 are way better. Only thing is i wish there was a way to make a playlist or setlist. I don't like it asking me whether I want to save changes or not even if i only opened a track to just play and not edit. It kills the workflow, especially when trying to change the click track in split seconds during a service. I hope they can add a playlist feature with quick smooth transitions between tracks like iMPC does.
Love it but it needs more!
by mcflu48 on 2019/06/30 16:33
Most of the reviews are correct and I agree with them. The app needs to go all the way though. I want to add effects on individual sounds, not just the whole track all the time. I wish it had more than just four tracks but I have been making due. I would like it if you could export straight to your iPhone library directly. Bring back the Traktor DJ app for iPhone. I can not stress that enough! I make most of my projects on the go and don’t have a iPad or laptop with me. These apps are essential to my mobile work flow.
This app is truly amazing !!
by Bg nm on 2017/01/09 01:59
I love everything about this app! I would really love it if there was a way that it would not lag while being paired with a Bluetooth device... every time i try to use this application while it is connected to a Bluetooth device it seems to be off by a whole eighth note:/ Another neat thing would be is if there was a live play option for the tune of the sample like there is for the dynamics. Other than these two things, it is an amazing product.
Great app!
by A11n1ckn4mesaretaken on 2018/05/07 23:15
App is great unless you need customer service or something is wrong from Native Instruments end, then you’re done. I’ve been waiting a week and a half for an instrument kit ($10 in app purchase). I’ve talked with 7 different people from iTunes to try and diagnose my download error, talked with my bank and now will be sitting on hold (have been for 40 minutes) with native instruments. By now it’s almost not worth it but I really enjoy making music from my phone and I already have NI products that I use in my studio. Native Instruments support could use serious improvements.
Everything is great!! Except the crashing
by ayydeedee on 2018/11/30 09:56
This app is simple and very easy to use compared to any real beat maker out there. It’s the next best thing besides the real beat maker. This app has simplified how beat making is for beginners. The only thing I that has been a reoccurring problem is the crashing when you go into the app, and while making music in the app. Other than that it’s really fantastic app to start having fun with. You can really make some incredible music with such simple tools to use. Worth it !!
Many great memories...
by smol and lonely keegi on 2019/02/25 02:47
I used to love using this app to make basic beats and create ideas for future songs I would produce. That is, until I could no longer open the app. A while ago, I found that I can no longer access the application anymore. This saddens me, since I had many treasured songs stored in its files. They will be missed. All I'm asking of the devs is that I can at least open the app so I can export my songs. Other than that issue, this is a great app! I hope I can recover my songs soon :(
Let build on something that’s great.
by qwconsulting on 2019/10/27 01:47
This app is dope, the sound kits could be doper. Which is the reason I’m writing this review. I would like to see a sample chopping and editing add on for this app. The sequencer get 5 stars all day. Yet I’m a sample based producer. I hate having to use 5 different apps to make a beat. It kills my work flow. So it that could be something you guys create in the future that would be dope. This app will always be in my mobile productions studio. Stay golden I’m a fan!!!
extremely limited in functionality
by Miles Standish Jr. on 2018/12/15 02:44
Plusses: sounds amazing, familiar Maschine workflow, easiest sampling on the fly you will ever encounter Minuses: extremely limited sound palette (even owning half the add on packs); a nightmare to arrange a song in; extremely unintuitive and un-ergonomic interface; limit of 4 patterns per track is unnecessarily stingy (if you have one pattern for the intro and one for the outro that only leaves you two patterns per track for the body of the song — pathetic) In short it is more of a toy than a serious musical tool, albeit an extremely complicated toy that will leave you cursing if you are tempted to try serious work with it.
Why has this happened?
by Djmust// on 2019/10/21 07:20
Either my phone is not installing iMaschine correctly 😂 or after the 2.2.2 update or whatever you guys recently did made the app go nuts !!! I can even open the expansion packs some parts of the iMaschine display panda don’t show on screen it’s soooo strange....I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the iMaschine app numerous time and nothing. Over all Great app loved it on my iPhone 8 but since I got the 11 something went wrong 😳
Please add more tracks for layering sounds
by Daspeiker on 2019/05/14 18:58
I give it a four because I feel limited when only being able to create ideas using 4 tracks on the go and trying to fit as much sound content as I can into it as I can. It would be nice to be able to mix additional sound content separately too. We are there with mobile applications working as “DAWS”. This would be an excellent upgrade with all the sounds I have purchased though this app. Cmon developers.
Improved from v1. Lacking key workflow features.
by Subimage on 2017/02/12 21:13
First lemme say this is definitely an improvement from v1. I'm using it as a quick field recorder for percussion and loop creator. Dig that they now have audiocopy, sample reverse, and ableton link implemented. Still this is missing some key features for me and I'm sure a lot of other people using this as a sound creation (instead of consumption) app. PAD COPY/CUT/PASTE. Please let us EDIT pad location in this way; so we can split large samples, organize our created kits, and double kick drums for fast playing. (It's hard to "double time" hits on the phone with such a small UI) Next...WHERE IS THE MIDI SUPPORT? Let me use my usb controllers please. Last — why can't we play "16 levels" for sample tune, velocity , etc? The sample songs are clearly using pitched samples but it's impossible to play different pitches in this app. These demo songs were obviously created in the desktop version of Maschine. This is false advertising.
Great But Needs Some Tweaks -> Desktop Import
by SmittyWit on 2017/02/10 23:12
The app is only good if you buy all the packs it offers(it's worth it if your serious). It has a VARIETY of sounds && you can basically export it in SoundCloud or IMachine for the desktop and continue your work just how you left it. My only problem is when you actually export it into the desktop. There's no way to import the project back into the app. Idk I like working on the phone better than computer. Faster workflow for me.
Needs work
by Tmokkeys on 2018/12/05 12:36
This app is GREAT!!!! I love the control it allows me to have. It’s better than the the beat machine that I had. However.... 1. It has stop working completely on IOS 12.1. It takes about 20 secs and just shuts down. VERY FRUSTRATING!!! 2. The pads are not touch sensitive for dynamics. This makes things difficult when attempting to make your percussion loops sound realistic. 3. There is no quantize in 3/4, 6/8 or advanced meters like 5/4, 7/8, etc. I am a musician. This limits me. Now there is a way for me to turn off the quantize and go manual but the millasecond delay on the pads makes it difficult. I use IMaschine to make tracks for church. Allow I have enjoy this software, the lack of updates have left me wanting more. Especially, with it not working at all. I mean I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it. Still nothing!!!! COME ON NATIVE INSTRUMENTS!!!! Did you guys forget you had an app. Let’s go!!!! Get with the program!!!
Love the App!
by KweSalik on 2018/10/24 22:26
My ONLY concern is that the app force closes on the iPhone X when the phone is in low power mode. The app will not open at all. It took me a while to figure out what it was that was causing it to force close, but you guys should try to get on that as soon as you can. Side note: it would be really nice if the app allows users to change the sound effects per instrument, or at least per scene.
Missing one thing
by 4Ever"ardo" on 2017/10/18 04:46
This app is amazing. I have loads of fun making beats using my iPad Pro. I even export to Maschine on my MacBook Pro. But one thing that would get this app 5 stars. Which it deserves 5 stars but since there is a computer version to this app and being the technology is there. I feel it would be phenomenal to use my iPad as a remote to control the software on my computer. I take my laptop and iPad with me on the go but to carry Maschine Hardware as well is just to much.
Kind of needs a new update
by Man likes books on 2019/02/26 06:07
The app is great over all and really easy to use. Though the last time there’s been an update for this has been like two years ago. With each new expansion added, the ideas for creating content seem endless. If anyone could just bring this app up to date, that would be great. The app keeps crashing when I’m trying to save kits, and naming the kits. When loading a different project.
It’s ok for sketching an idea.
by Menty Muziq on 2019/02/09 02:39
The sounds are really good and the simplicity is great for sketching out a beat idea but the this app has no integration or accessibility with other DAWs which makes it hard to continue working on your idea. The fact it has no track out option is frustrating. You would have to record each track into your DAW one at a time. The options are, You either export the whole project to be imported only in NI Maschine if you own one) or your stuck with exporting the master out.
Needs some more improvements
by Love this game but? on 2017/03/14 17:50
The whole idea of the app is good but I needs a improvement like the sampling should be recording until you end the recording not when the app wants to end it also be able to normalize the recording. I find my self coming up with ideas in this app then later working on then on the intua BeatMaker 2 cuz it has more two work with yet it also has his up and downs you can't export as a song.
The Future Of Sound
by xanderLOVE on 2017/07/25 02:50
I am a professional musician and producer and im blown away by design and power of this app. It is the future of mobile music making, but it's available right now. Worth ten times the cost. How about an opportunity to send feedback through the app? Most of the abobe creative apps have this feature. I've always got valuable feedback as a power user of this app. #NativeInstruments
Good, but very flawed.
by nick_ewald on 2019/07/09 19:47
There have been improvements made to this app over the years, but very minimally/few and far between. Recently, the developers resolved an issue I was having which I appreciate a lot. Overall, it is a good app, but it needs an overhaul. I love incremental updates, but this app has been “business as usual” for a bit too long. Needs to be refreshed in the UI department as well as under the hood/more features, etc..
Update for iOS 12?
by Paul_Blart on 2018/10/13 02:12
Any possibility of an update for iOS 12? This is a great app for producers. Since we haven’t seen an update in a year it’d be nice to see one for iOS 12. The only flaw I can see as of right now is the app’s stability. It’ll crash and won’t reopen causing the user to uninstall and then reinstall every time it crashes. Other than that, it’s a great app and well worth the money.
Love this app
by A-lazer on 2019/11/06 04:25
My father introduced me to this app and I am in love with it. It’s fun to do in your spare time! It is simple enough where I can creat a quick beat but complex enough where I can create better songs on this app than many other apps. I don’t think the app should be so expensive though. $10 plus expansions are a little annoying but other wise this is a fun great app!!!
Loyal NI Customer
by Ahahahahshdk on 2017/04/25 06:54
I'm a loyal customer to Native Instruments because time and time again they seem to blow my mind away.. this app is perfect for musicians across the board just to put a music idea down. Now there are a couple of touch ups that can happen such as post quantize as you are tapping on a phone.. delay perhaps? Minor tweaks to make it more customizable as all of your products are pretty in depth.. other than that, great product!
No audio from latest update
by Moneyd00 on 2019/09/15 22:48
The most recent update has made it so iMaschine 2 will only play through a Bluetooth connection or headphones. There is absolutely no sound or triggers when I press play without any sound accessories connected.. not sure what’s happening.. I have always used this program ever since iMaschine came out and this has never happened before so I’m kinda bummed.
Pressure sensitive feature
by Zellian26 on 2018/07/31 01:14
Ive been playing with this app for quite some time. Back when the first iMachine app came out the volume never went up and down with how hard you press on the pads. Im not the biggest fan of the pressure sensitivity especially when im playing with the drum kits it doesnt really work well for that. Wish there was a setting to turn that feature off. Still a great app tho.
😔
by srry-kun on 2019/02/26 05:13
bruh. . . I USED TO LOVE THIS APP 😩 i haven’t been able to get it to work since iOS 11.1. i updated my phone, tried to open the app immediately after an it’s been crashing ever since. i haven’t tried to reinstalling iMaschine yet but ill give an update once i do. im giving you 5 ⭐️ s b/c i hope NI can resolve this issue sooner than later; if not, can we have iMaschine 3?
Super fun
by SethTnk on 2017/09/17 04:35
Great App. A bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, it gets easier and easier to fly through and put together beats and progressions. The UI is a little windows 95 for my liking, but they can't all be as pretty as Figure. My only two complaints would be to add a step-record and/or quantize feature to the keyboard since it's latency is crap, and access to Dropbox for dropping in my own wavs and samples.
Perfect if Bluetooth Delay is fixed
by ColdFiya on 2017/02/05 19:06
The only reason I'm not giving ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is because of the Bluetooth lag! I like to record real time and not use step edit. There is a 1 to 2 second delayfrom the time you hit the pad to the time you hear the sound when using Bluetooth 🎧 or 🔊 . Other than that, this app is AMAZING!! It's this app that made me buy Maschine Studio. Please fix the Bluetooth lag to make this app 💯!!!!!
I’ve been using for years!!
by Streetking510 on 2019/09/23 16:01
However this most recent iOS 13 update ruined the interface of the app...I can’t really see anything and resume all the work I be been doing...please fix....and the only thing from making this app perfect is that there should be more FX and the option to have more fix being used at a time and at once.
Great but.....
by all my names were takin on 2019/05/13 00:13
I use this everyday. I love it, once I learned how to really use it I was off and running. But the app won’t open sometimes more then it should happen, is anyone manning this thing? I hope there’s an update soon too it’s like they forget about it for years at a time. All in all I love this program but get it together.

Can’t restore purchases
by LongBeachDude on 2019/11/21 18:14
Spent a lot on expansion packs, but I haven’t been able to restore these purchases for 2 plus years :( Please fix or refund me for these expansion packs
Unsatisfied and Disappointed
by 432=1 on 2019/11/14 06:49
I own a maschine mikro mk2 which is a pain to learn and I trusted their video on this app how it says you get all plugins included in the app and what a joke it is not free so you basically getting ripped off twice for a sound pack that should naturally come and or be freely updated for every maschine whenever a new one comes out... but no they rape u on it. .15 of a star is all this best
Time signature options
by Jayjay134 on 2019/11/11 18:51
I use the app very frequently and use it not only for hobby but professional mobile recording as well and believe me when I say it gets absolutely frustrating when I try to sync it with other apps and either A: it won’t sync correctly or often(GarageBand and IMaschine) or B: I can’t pursue my ideas because Maschine has no option to change the time signature from 4/4! (WHICH IS HUGEEEE!!!)
Update
by Michex00 on 2019/11/07 21:07
Would love to see a major update. It seems as though native instruments is good with just keeping it simple. They went from iMaschine to iMaschine2 and haven’t budged since. I LOVE the drum kits. C’mon NI give us more! Maybe starting with AUV3 version of the app. PLEASE for the iOS music creators!
Love this app
by A-lazer on 2019/11/06 04:25

This is garbage
by Thezoo82 on 2019/10/31 12:39
There isn’t a piano roll editor...I can’t edit or position notes individually like I can do on EVERY music production program. Unless I’m mistaken I’d really like my money back. This app is basically useless with out that feature. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I hope I’m wrong
Just get Impc
by Fastboy780 on 2019/10/29 14:07
Been waiting for a bug fix to resolve the sample not trimming issue for the iPads, no one in support or twitter reached out to me. I enjoy the app and been using for about 6 years now. But this issue is really putting a damper on my production goals. At this point I’m just teaching myself to use iMPC by Akai because seems like no one seems to care to fix this issue.
Let build on something that’s great.
by qwconsulting on 2019/10/27 01:47
This app is dope, the sound kits could be doper. Which is the reason I’m writing this review. I would like to see a sample chopping and editing add on for this app. The sequencer get 5 stars all day. Yet I’m a sample based producer. I hate having to use 5 different apps to make a beat. It kills my work flow. So it that could be something you guys create in the future that would be dope. This app will always be in my mobile productions studio. Stay golden I’m a fan!!!
Redesign please!!!
by Daghost313 on 2019/10/27 00:46
As a huuuuge Maschine user on my Mac I think app would benefit greatly from a redesign that would make it look like the computer version or at least something similar the interface is not very user friendly and I use maschine daily I love all the packs I’ve brought but I don’t use the app because it’s just not workflow friendly at all
Why has this happened?
by Djmust// on 2019/10/21 07:20
Either my phone is not installing iMaschine correctly 😂 or after the 2.2.2 update or whatever you guys recently did made the app go nuts !!! I can even open the expansion packs some parts of the iMaschine display panda don’t show on screen it’s soooo strange....I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the iMaschine app numerous time and nothing. Over all Great app loved it on my iPhone 8 but since I got the 11 something went wrong 😳
IPadOS
by Technic_ on 2019/10/14 05:55
Everything was working fine until the new iPadOS update. Now you can’t chop samples. Any update on a fix?
Error Loading
by Tripduz on 2019/10/07 17:58
Ever since the latest Apple update, my imachine2 app refuses to load anything from AudioCopy. Since that’s basically where I send all my sounds/loops/samples, this all becomes worthless. Fix it!!
It’s okay
by Apexboss on 2019/10/05 06:49
Very good app. But the only problem is that when your phone updates this app cannot keep up and I swear to god if my music gets lost I’m done with this app.
Screen problems resolved in 13.1.1
by Saint Eskimo on 2019/09/28 16:04
The problems with iMaschine 2 are resolved by recent iOS update 13.1.1
App deleted all my files
by 5cooley on 2019/09/28 00:58
Can someone please help me get my app to work, I can’t scroll through the app or select anything . It’s like the app is glitching
Not working correctly on iOS 13 now corrected in 13.1
by inferno00000 on 2019/09/24 17:45
Buttons are missing like the 1/4 1/8 1-16 etc there kinda there I can hit were there supposed to be and it works sometimes. Please fix I have all the packs use this ever day and have the actual machine software and the latest komplete software on pc. I use this when I have ideas through the day and transfer to machine when in the studio. Looks like the IOS 13.1 has corrected this issue. That’s great I can get back to work used to 5 stars
App Update
by Censor mode on 2019/09/24 16:19
Please update app for dark mode on IOS13, a lot of things are invisible.
Update
by Rahbleezy on 2019/09/24 16:16
Is this software not compatible with iOS 13. Can’t see icons on my app. Making this app not fun.
Love it! BUT
by Nickolas W. Name on 2019/09/24 04:01
Just bought the iPhone 11 and was excited to make something because it was starting to be slow on my iPhone 8. I open the app and half the interface is missing or in the wrong place. I know the phone has only been out a few days, but it’s the same size as the XR. Hopefully it just needs an update
Needs Major Update
by Weirdo Burrito on 2019/09/24 03:23
I love NI products and I’m sure there are others that feel the same way; some may even own multiple products. However, the mobile app needs some serious updates. What was once a great app 5 years ago has now starting to become obsolete. Do not allow this great product to become dated especially during a time where more creators are moving towards mobile—Maschine has serious bug issues with iOS13 by the way.
I’ve been using for years!!
by Streetking510 on 2019/09/23 16:01
However this most recent iOS 13 update ruined the interface of the app...I can’t really see anything and resume all the work I be been doing...please fix....and the only thing from making this app perfect is that there should be more FX and the option to have more fix being used at a time and at once.
Update
by nicolas dncsn on 2019/09/22 18:27
After upgrade ios13 i got some problems with app please fix it
Many buttons and controls not visible
by djloving on 2019/09/20 06:27
Hard to tell what I’m doing tapping on random parts of the screen. I can tell from the screen shots that there are buttons missing. Maybe it is not iOS 13? They better update quickly - as it stands a waste of $10!
Needs to be brought up to date...
by LazyOne23 on 2019/09/16 15:37
Sounds are great and very easy to lay out a track but needs AU3 support...
No audio from latest update

Where’s imachine3?
by KĀEPH on 2019/09/13 07:31
Just asking...mobile producers are here to stay, charge a little more to get more im with it...
Disappointed
by SevenOh3 on 2019/09/11 17:01
I wanted this to have the arrangement feature that the actual program has, but you just have to use this like all the other free drum machine apps. No arrangement feature makes me wish I could return this.
Why!!?
by YNG228 on 2019/08/26 15:18
I paid for this app and a good bit of sound packs and now it will not update or allow me into the app why..?
Love it, but could you add....
by ishootemup on 2019/08/24 07:47
I use imaschine 2 religiously and love it! But I wish there was at least was a way to get sound FX for individual sounds instead of affecting the whole kit. And if you could add more tracks instead of just 4 to use.
Possible added features similar to the DAW version.
by Shlozen on 2019/08/21 21:11
Love the app for years now. I only wish there was a way to change pitches on a pad for multiple tones within a song without having to use more pads. As well as when adjusting the tune level or any levels for the fact if there are visible numbers to see to match different pads or changes to match without guessing until you get home and use the Maschine Studio. Last some how incorporate the slice feature and the loop feature to auto sync samples for perfect timing as well as from a 110bpm to sound the same as it did at 83bpm like the DAW version. I hope any of these could be one day added or all. Thanks for the great app and hardware/software to love using!
Pretty good except...
by Flame 1 aka J.Flizzo on 2019/08/14 11:53
This app is amazing. The only thing I would add is bouncing songs to all DAW’s as WAV files. At least have tracks bounced over separately in any workstation ex. Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live...when this happen it’s 5 stars from me!
I’ll give 4, but brothaROD is right.
by kswanca on 2019/08/12 02:06
NI I love your incredible synths. This app is ready for an update.
App still crashes
by Hard Nocz on 2019/08/09 07:11
Been a user since The original apps launch and honestly once 2 dropped it’s always crashes. Lack of updates also is annoying. Also i have downloaded the new update so please don’t respond with generic reply. Using iPhone 7+ and IPhone x latest iOS Update....
Basics Missing
by Applesnoranges99 on 2019/08/08 16:05
Good overall app, with a few important pieces missing. First, this needs to have at least 8 tracks instead of 4. Second, the project needs to follow the cursor in all modes. Third, we need to be able to start the pattern from the bar that is selected. It seems all iOS groove box apps are limited in this way.... which just blows my mind, because these are MAJOR limitations!... and can easily be fixed, (see any older akai mpc). This app (and many others) could be great with just this small redo. Be the first on the block NI!
Nice
by Tenemec on 2019/08/03 17:15
I lost everything and still repurchased I like it the much Anyway to avoid this again? Or is this part of the deal
Soundcloud Crashes.
by bubblez741 on 2019/07/30 05:39
ive had this app since it came out and it ran fine, now it freezes my screen and crashes the app whenever i wanna post it somewhere.... still a constant problem.
App Stopped Working
by jaclynherrington on 2019/07/22 23:00
I love Native Instruments and I love the sounds available in this app. I think this app is one of the best out there in terms of being able to create something quickly. But I’m extremely annoyed. After a year or so the app has stopped opening up. I deleted and re-downloaded but that only bought me another day of use while erasing all my music. Please fix this app NI!!!!!!
Cannot open this app
by Eat 25!!! on 2019/07/22 21:41
I’m a big fan of this app and this company, I’ve used this since high school and made a ton of fun stuff on it. But for the past year or so, I haven’t been able to even open the app. I don’t want to delete it and lose all my projects. Can someone tell me what to do here?
Great app
by Jcoke1 on 2019/07/15 17:34
Great app, I think this app would be way better with more sound filters.
Good app, but the keyboard doesn’t fit the screen
by Makhlouf Makhlek on 2019/07/14 11:52
Makes it unusable to write melodies / progressions
IT DOESNT WORK After Updating to 2.21
by Willa Beez on 2019/07/10 12:13
i have had imaschine since the beginnings i have purchased all the in app packs and I CANNOT OPEN THE APP FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS. deleting and re downloading doesn’t work either. I AM FED UP NATIVE INSTRUMENTS DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS !!!
Crashes
by IIIRDPOWER MUSIC on 2019/07/10 07:46
Crashes every time I can’t open it on iPhone at all smh and I am running the latest software version 2.2.1 on an iPhone 7 this has been persistent and I don’t want to delete and reinstall because I will loose all the music I have created. Furthermore I don’t want to deal with such an unstable application.
Great, doesn’t crash on startup
by Doors54 on 2019/07/10 03:36
Amazing
Crashing, this app is bunk
by WhoIsRod? on 2019/07/09 23:23
Auto-updated, now I can’t access any of my music! Edit: They updated it and now it opens, but restored and installed purchased instrument packs but they aren’t restoring so none of my projects will play.
Good, but very flawed.

There have been improvements made to this app over the years, but very minimally/few and far between. Recently, the developers resolved an issue I was having which I appreciate a lot.

3/5
by nick09990 on 2019/07/07 20:19
Good producing app but the samples are pure garbage, even the extension samples
Abandoned ware
by ios producer on 2019/07/06 02:57
This app hasn’t been updated in years. This last update was just a fix on compatibility. Get it together Native Instruments.
STILL CRASHES
by dwayne-ii on 2019/07/05 23:04
haven’t been able to use this for years because it won’t stop crashing on my phone. PLEASE UPDATE!!
Good app
by Victor Hyde on 2019/07/03 06:46
Finally works! I hope it will not crash on iOS 13 ;)
Awesome app
by djphatjive on 2019/07/03 01:54
This all was actually updated today. Love this app and a have been using it for a long time. Glad to see they are still thinking of us.
App doesn’t even work
by Falcon148 on 2019/07/02 07:08
Had this app for over 3 years and they don’t update the app as often as it should be . I can’t even open the app and it’s been like 3 months since I can remember since I was able to open it . No updates and because of that , i guess i lose all my saved files .
I want my Maschine back
by DJSobriquet on 2019/07/01 06:23
Crashes. I can’t use it anymore. iPhone X updated os
Love it but it needs more!
by mcflu48 on 2019/06/30 16:33
Most of the reviews are correct and I agree with them. The app needs to go all the way though. I want to add effects on individual sounds, not just the whole track all the time. I wish it had more than just four tracks but I have been making due. I would like it if you could export straight to your iPhone library directly. Bring back the Traktor DJ app for iPhone. I can not stress that enough! I make most of my projects on the go and don’t have a iPad or laptop with me. These apps are essential to my mobile work flow.
App Force-Closing!
by Psy Buo on 2019/06/24 18:42
I’d been using this app no problem for about a year now and I have never had any problems except for recently when the app force-closed after updating my SE. If anyone else is having a similar problem, please let someone know that can help.
Crashing non stop
by drum jihad on 2019/06/22 17:41
Ive been using the imaschine since the first one came out. Been a huge fan of it since day one. But for the past few months its been closing non stop, and now it wont even open at all. FIX THIS PROBLEM
TRASH
by 4483828299292 on 2019/06/21 13:41
I paid for my app and all it did was crash thanks I machine
Amazing app, but...
by TrevBarnes on 2019/06/20 19:45
It seems NI doesn’t have an interest in continuing with this app. I love using it when it’s not crashing. Please work out these problems and listen to your reviewers. Everyone seems to love this app but you guys haven’t updated anything in 2 years, please help us out!
I love this app
by Qillab on 2019/06/18 22:57
First off im bias because I use the Maschine groove on my computer. But this is the best beat making app that give you solid user friendly tools, but room for advanced ideas (or for the start of advanced ideas) But where is the support for this app. There are days i lose beats because the app cant open. I have more than enough memory and this is the only app that does it. I have turned off and on my phone to retry. NOTHING. I feel this is very basic bugs that can be fixed. There are new expansion packs to download but cant use em because the app wont open. And if it does. There are missing tracks. This is losing to the garageband and other beat apps. Im disappointed.
Best app to own for mobile beat production
by Perskescious on 2019/06/16 06:51
And it hasn’t worked for the past year. Just keeps freezing restarting or won’t even let me open the app. I’ve reinstalled multiple times deleted and re-added all purchases and still... nothing. It’s like it’s been abandoned by the developers or something
KEEPS FORCE CLOSING
by kayybug22 on 2019/06/13 20:56
Everytime I click on the app it force closes!
No update yet?
by GzUpHookie on 2019/06/12 04:30
I swear it’s been like a year since I’ve been able to successfully use this app without crashing or not even opening at all. Please fix, people spent money on this app supporting your pockets
This app does not work anymore
by angel123252 on 2019/06/11 01:10
Ever since I’ve updated my phone the app does not open anymore. It just shows the loading screen, then it goes to the home screen. I have about 30 beats that I’ve made on this app, and they took me about 2 years to make...please fix this ASAP
Well that was $10 down the drain
by Jayebrave on 2019/06/09 21:41
It keeps CRASHING. It won’t even open up. This is crap. Ten dollars WASTED.
Can’t even load the app at this point
by JSanderson on 2019/06/08 09:03
RIP iMaschine 2.... might be time for IM3....
Amazed
by SwoleJoel011 on 2019/06/07 21:42
Honest this has been my wheels for over two years and I’m never turning back from music for as long as I live. Great app and numerous ways to use so many sounds on kits, or keys. I’ve got to say I’ve lost countless projects due to the fact there is no account system or cloud to save to.. how I reflect that I should’ve sent them out at least somewhere.. but is there absolutely no way getting them back? Are they actually gone? Anyways I will always own this app as long as you guys are available. Mobile studio like this is game changing. Even on my iPhone 5se I surprise people with what this app does. Thanks a lot for this.
Amazing app but crashes before startup every time
by Car stank on 2019/06/07 01:14
This app barely ever starts up without crashing and developers have done nothing to fix this
Update where and when
by Stealthdaybe on 2019/06/05 05:00
When is there going to be an update????
Great App but now crashes on startup
by Shopanpro on 2019/06/04 23:53
I have an iPhone X and the app just crashes every time I start it up now I’ve got over 100 beats saved and I can’t listen to them anymore and only close up half the time
Not opening
by lelandlucky on 2019/06/04 07:48
I have a brand new iPhone and just bought this app and its not opening . Did I just waste 11 dollars ?
Update is definitely needed
by Onxykid87 on 2019/06/02 18:26
Just do everyone a favor and keep updating this app. We’d love to see more improvements!
WTH
by Fcydhush on 2019/06/02 13:58
my app won’t even open, i just bought it I WANT MY MONEY BACK
No longer works
by Boxmuncher619 on 2019/05/30 22:37
That app was good when it was kept up to date but now it no longer works with the new iOS on my iPhone 8.
Fix the Crashing Issues!!
by MYchickenhiccups on 2019/05/29 17:46
This app is great for making music on the go, but half of the time I can't even open the app because it crashes whenever I attempt to open it. Please fix this and I will leave a 5 star review!!
App problems
by iTZyABOiDWiLL on 2019/05/26 16:29
Idk why out of no where the app wont open it just closes out everytime , i brought alot of sound kits and really use this app its a mpc for ur phone is there anyway to fix this ??? @_d.Will on IG if anything plz let me know
Won’t Open
by BetterNetRocks on 2019/05/25 18:43
I bought this app for $10 about two years ago. Now it won’t open, and it won’t start or run. After 39 seconds of the start up of the app, it just closes. Pretty much got ripped of my money. Only reason why there are two stars is because when I could open it worked fine and was kind of fun.
Crashes during startup
by 10Rad on 2019/05/23 17:44
Update this please I use the app alongside my equipment regularly. It hasn’t worked on my iPhone X since iOS 12 crashed frequently for iOS 11. I’m so disappointed I’ve spent so much time and money with this app I love it for quick ideas. A whole new iM3 would be incredible but all I ask is an update to iM2 so I can use it again.
Solution for APP not opening/running
by iamshmacked on 2019/05/21 22:11
The app will force close or not open if your phone is on Low Power Mode. Turn off Low Power Mode and your app should work perfectly fine
Does not launch
by DannyRojo on 2019/05/20 04:41
I haven’t been able to work on maschine because it doesn’t launch when I want to use the app.
what happened
by Desjardin CG on 2019/05/18 23:57
app keeps crashing doth thou hast an update? my imaschine 1 app is still alive and kickin
Doesn’t work anymore!?
by skinnytanner on 2019/05/17 16:31
I bought this app about 2 months ago and loved it a lot. But for about 3 weeks now. The app doesn’t load at all. It just sits on the loading screen and never does anything. I deleted and reinstalled it but still nothing has changed. Very disappointed I spent $10 for an app that worked for 1 month. :(
Imaschine 1
by Illmanik on 2019/05/16 22:49
I have purchases in the 1st gen of this and I’m guessing that I can no longer use those purchases with version 2 i have tried to restore purchases and it says error every time can someone help me out
Doesn’t work
by SB3334 on 2019/05/15 05:00
Crashes upon opening. Hasn’t worked in months
Please add more tracks for layering sounds
by Daspeiker on 2019/05/14 18:58
I give it a four because I feel limited when only being able to create ideas using 4 tracks on the go and trying to fit as much sound content as I can into it as I can. It would be nice to be able to mix additional sound content separately too. We are there with mobile applications working as “DAWS”. This would be an excellent upgrade with all the sounds I have purchased though this app. Cmon developers.
I’d like a refund
by King Moon Racer 420 on 2019/05/13 21:09
I have an iPhone X, however I’ve only been able to use this app once. Every time i try to open the app it crashes. I’ve tried turning my phone on and off and nothing helps. I’d either like a working app or my money back.
Great but.....
by all my names were takin on 2019/05/13 00:13
I use this everyday. I love it, once I learned how to really use it I was off and running. But the app won’t open sometimes more then it should happen, is anyone manning this thing? I hope there’s an update soon too it’s like they forget about it for years at a time. All in all I love this program but get it together.
Woooow
by Omegadjdududeufieid on 2019/05/11 12:39
So I redownloaded the app after awhile of not having it and every time I try to open it it just closes and I can’t use the app. Idk why it always closes EVERY TIME I open it
Expeditiously
by STG it's ZDV on 2019/05/10 16:24
I am a big fan of native instruments, especially iMaschine 1, but this app force closes waaay to much. I still uses it, but NATIVE INSTRUMENTS.... please fix this, expeditiously...quickly!
The most forgotten underrated Music App
by J'orie on 2019/05/02 00:35
The love this app but recently it’s been crashing on my iPhone. I’ve made over 100 beats using the app. The last several weeks I haven’t been able to open the app. The app is very intuitive I would rather use iMaschine iPhone app than any other beating making app. Hopefully the bugs can be worked out sooner than later.
Lost projects
by Madsci23 on 2019/05/01 02:44
Hi, the app crashed on my iPhone XR and I had to download it again but all of my saved projects are gone. How do I recover them?
iMaschine 2
by AlWaltonMusic on 2019/04/30 00:43
I like it most because of its diverse sound library! I would love to see more tracks added to its functionality. I need at least 16 track recording capability for a 5 star rating.
TURN OFF LOW POWER MODE
by Hęłłö on 2019/04/28 09:31
I’m only writing this review because i hope it’ll help someone else. I found an old support chat from Native Instruments and seen the customer service account recommended turning off all battery saving settings. It immediately worked for me and has so ever since. Hope if works for other as well! Working on iPhone 8 Plus 4/28/19
Disappointed
by MCillfated on 2019/04/27 15:55
Can i get a refund?!? The app will not open, it closes 10 secs in to opening up 😡
It hurts.
by Joagaiivhvj on 2019/04/25 00:10
Let me start off by saying I really love this app. I do. But it crashes so often and sometimes for days at a time I can’t open the app.
Mediocre, barely works.
by Taizukujin on 2019/04/21 06:40
Most of the time it won’t even open. When it does, I can make something cool, but the fact that it barely functions is horrible. Can’t give you higher than a 2 due to this. Would be a 4.5 with minor issues.
Awesome app except compatibility.
by Parker holl on 2019/04/20 00:55
Please update app to make it compatible with iPhone xs max. It freezes on opening screen every since I upgraded my phone. I don't want to lose a awesome app like this one.
App Keeps Crashing
by Xtrajazzie on 2019/04/17 13:28
How do I get a refund. The app will not load and keeps crashing.
Sad
by Zaytoven jr on 2019/04/15 07:38
I wish I could get a refund FL mobile has better platform and more to offer waste of my money 😡
Crashing more often than not.
by mr.grench on 2019/04/11 21:05
This app was incredible before. It was perfect for “sketching your ideas”. Now it just crashes
The App That Time Forgot...
by brothaROD on 2019/03/16 01:40
This app is good for what it was intended to do: get done rough ideas for songs and tracks using quality (44.1 kHz and 16-bit? SERIOUSLY?!!?) sounds/samples. But two years or so and countless soundpacks later, I’m looking for a swing function that DOESN’T affect all 4 tracks, MIDI support for playing keyboard parts (because large fingers don’t work well on small keys), and addressing a bug that causes the app to crash after saving custom drum kits (ever since iOS 11!!). I also agree with another reviewer who mentioned that file management (as well as importing and exporting projects to something OTHER THAN MASCHINE, which is something many of us DON’T have) needs to be better and more integrated. It’s sorta “bassackwards” to develop all of these soundpacks (again...44.1 and 16?!!?) and ignore the framework and usability of the app itself. I mean, thanks for the addition of effects and all, but at this rate, NI shoulda added this app among their numerous updates and additions to their arsenal of products across the board. Maybe an iM3 wouldn’t be too much to ask these days...?
This App is Good But Needs Improvements
by D*7 on 2018/12/18 11:14
The number one thing needed is cloud support. Actually all of their product would benefit from cloud services that way you would be able to sync all projects cross all your devices and their products instead of needing work arounds when changing devices or want projects for the computer app or vice versa. Also they need to update this for iPad Pro 11” because there are big boards around the app. I don’t think they update this app much because it seems like they aren’t trying to improve the app in general because they know it’s good. But the thing is it could be better with small changes that could drastically change the user experience. If they could fix those complaints this app would be A+ because outside of those complaints it’s really good. It’s a slightly simpler version of desktop version which is a good thing on a mobile device.
Amazing!
by Young Qeyse on 2017/05/09 15:20
I had been contemplating getting this app for some time because I didn't know how fluid it would be far as making beats on a mobile device but after reading reviews and taking a chance, I was amazed. The interface is smooth and looks great. There's no lag and it quantizes sounds perfectly. You may struggle at first but once you get going. It's hard to stop. What really makes this app great is the ability to export this right into Maschine on your computer and pick up where you left off to do even more. By no means is this app perfect or meant for full production but if you're out and about and got an idea come to mind, look at this as a sketch pad to get those ideas out, transfer them, and go in more once you get home! Also you can get all the expansion packs separately for one price of $9.99. Which is a great deal so you can't beat it!
Good....but...Still much to be desired
by viasangp on 2016/11/17 13:50
Many see this as just a scratch app...yes it is,but why make us all suffer. What do I mean? As an owner of too many NI tools to mention, this app is just scratching the surface with its current state. I owned version 1 and upgraded to 2 immediately. I've been waiting for portrait mode in order to use the entire screen real estate. I've also been waiting on a proper arrange window.... Like that of the MPC Pro app....what gives? Can we also get more groups and 16 levels? Please? It would really help when bringing it into the $999 piece of gear I already own. I love the MPC App, but guess what? I'm using maschine....it would be very helpful to have similar features. I'm loving all of the updates, but they seem to come quite slowly.
Crashes often... decent when it doesn’t.
by zeLrsn on 2018/12/25 19:26
I’m honestly disappointed in and with native instruments. For how many new sound packs and features they release throughout a year I feel like iMaschine 2 should run WAY more smoothly than it does on my 7 plus. I can never rely 100% for the app to even open, often times it’ll show the start screen then just crash. Funny enough, it’ll be there in the background but I can’t open it. I’m often stuck with force closing the app and trying to restart it but that rarely works. I’ve deleted the app several times, losing projects in the process, only to reinstall and nothing works. I’ve been a native instruments user for quite a while, but honestly, I’m over their slow to no response customer service and glitchy app. I haven’t even described how limited the app is, which can be cool for creativity, but c’mon native instruments, this app is begging for an update. 2-stars and I’m being generous.
SETLIST For onstage musicians! Reverb!!!Thanks for listening
by Oilman dry on 2016/11/17 16:21
Great app. I'm a drummer and I actually use this to loop my click tracks during church service. I can also adjust tempo on the fly of course. The Reverb that was just recently added to the app is great too for dynamics that I can actually use during service in the loop helps create a better worship experience. I'm hoping the developers pickup on this review and also add a SETLIST. I've got so many tracks that i take too much time finding the next track, I actually end up creating a pause in service that's a little too long for what I would like to achieve, and that's smooth and fast transitions. Especially because I'm controlling it and sometimes my other hand still needs to be busy playing. Thanks!!!
NI, you there?
by Average Mexican on 2019/02/14 10:46
I sunk a decent little chunk of cash into this app, its expansions, and the previous release, and it won’t open at all! All the projects I had been working on aren’t accessible! Every time the app opens, it crashes before I can get to the workspace. I’d really like to be able to use this again, it was perfect as a go-to when I wasn’t at my laptop. But now that I haven’t used it for a while, I’m starting to notice what others are saying in terms of it needing improvement before I even had this issue. Hopefully NI doesn’t forget about this one! Please don’t make me buy another 20$ (30 something including expansions I copped) app lol, just fix this one 🙃 I really hope your pricier products don’t get abandoned like this one did
Possible added features similar to the DAW version.
by Shlozen on 2019/08/21 21:11
Love the app for years now. I only wish there was a way to change pitches on a pad for multiple tones within a song without having to use more pads. As well as when adjusting the tune level or any levels for the fact if there are visible numbers to see to match different pads or changes to match without guessing until you get home and use the Maschine Studio. Last some how incorporate the slice feature and the loop feature to auto sync samples for perfect timing as well as from a 110bpm to sound the same as it did at 83bpm like the DAW version. I hope any of these could be one day added or all. Thanks for the great app and hardware/software to love using!
Best 4-Track BeatMaking App
by freakwithamachine on 2018/12/27 08:29
Like many of the best apps out there, the user interface seems simple, but it hides so many Amazing features under the hood. While only allowing 4 tracks and up to 4 patterns per track...there is so much you can do within those parameters. Each pattern can be up to 32 bars and each track in pad form can hold up to 16 sounds. You can even adjust the panning, volume, and tuning of each sound. You can combine the patterns to create an unlimited number of “Scenes” for your masterpiece. There’s no excuse for not creating great music on this App. Native Instruments, please do not abandon this app. Please update it at some point soon, so that it may be usable in upcoming versions of iOS. Thanks!
Pretty annoying on iOS 11
by vegathavillain on 2018/01/02 18:05
UPDATE FOR IPHONE X YALL HAD ENOUGH TIME. I DIDN'T SPEND OVER 20 DOLLARS ON THIS APP FOR ZERO UPDATES, I UNDERSTAND YALL JUST DROPPED NEW HARDWARE AND ALL THAT BUT LETS GET THIS DONE. Overall, an AMAZING, AMAZING app. Super intuitive and sinple but After having it since launch I still have a few gripes: - still no number sliders so I have to guess and listen to see if a sample is pitched the same or at the same volume. ( cmon bruh) - no way to shut off 3D Touch in app, so if I’m hitting a pad I might accidentally screw up recording because the app thinks I’m trying to use a 3D command. ( common sense function bruh) - on iOS 11 when loading a sample sometimes the slider glitches - still no way to stretch samples (BeatMaker has this and more so it’s definitely possible and there’s ZERO excuse) - no auto chop which on an iPhone app would make things WAY easier than chopping samples then still having to go and manually load each one. ( also something beat maker has) While it’s my go to app and has been since the first one, it’s super limited for no reason. I actually went it and bought a Maschine Mikro because I love this app so much and it’s collecting dust because this is so much easier to use, but you guys shouldn’t limit it like you are, I would rather have these simple functions than a new beat pack every month.
Amazed
by SwoleJoel011 on 2019/06/07 21:42
Honest this has been my wheels for over two years and I’m never turning back from music for as long as I live. Great app and numerous ways to use so many sounds on kits, or keys. I’ve got to say I’ve lost countless projects due to the fact there is no account system or cloud to save to.. how I reflect that I should’ve sent them out at least somewhere.. but is there absolutely no way getting them back? Are they actually gone? Anyways I will always own this app as long as you guys are available. Mobile studio like this is game changing. Even on my iPhone 5se I surprise people with what this app does. Thanks a lot for this.
Good but
by Chris 364588 on 2017/02/10 16:44
I really like the idea of this application but have only used it to capture real rough ideas. Considering the touch interface on phones and try to get the timing right one of the biggest things that I think would really take this app a lot further would be truly being able to edit the notes or at a bare minimum being able to quantize after recording. Please please add an update that at least gives the ability to quantize after recording. I think this App would be so much more useful with either a real editor or post recording quantization.
Thank You "NI"
by GameCentralHQS on 2016/10/30 00:44
Reverb! Such a nice addition. Still a lot more things that can improve the mobile capability of this app that doesn't contest with in Fruity Loops Mobile Studio. Id love to see a option on the next update involving a 1/64th for creating a more intuitive beat for on the go and also you guys should add more than just 4 tracks!!!! Maybe a couple more would spice things up a bit. Instead of just limiting this app, expand it and show off the potential that this easily usable application can put on the table. For 5$ it is still quite a steal! But until that day there is a 1/64th option for more intuitive beat creation on this app it will always remain 4 stars.
best app to start with.
by nextxlife666 on 2018/12/30 09:02
Got this app for fun, because I was far from having enough money to actually be able to make beats. after making some pretty cool beats off this app alone, it convinced me to look into Native Instruments even further. Now I’ve got the Maschine Mikro MK3 and I was able to expand on the beats I had made on my phone even further. I would definitely say this app sparked up my creativity for making beats, and was a major step in getting a feel for maschine software. As stated in another review, this app can very much be a useful “sketch pad” for ideas that you have to work on in the future.
Good app!
by Chucksteroonerooski on 2018/02/18 15:20
Edit: app crashes and won’t open on iPhone SE half of the time! Please fix! Original review: This is a cool and great sounding app. Here's a wish list of features for NI to include in next update: 1. The ability to add a fade to the end of samples to reduce noise and the occasional "click" at the end of user made / chopped up samples. 2. The ability to fine tune the tuning of a sample with an actual numeric value so that multiple chopped portions of loops could all be tuned to exact same value instead guessing with the visual slider. 3. Actual EQ for individual samples instead of just the filters available for tracks now. 4. The ability to separate stereo samples into two separate mono samples that can be panned anywhere in the stereo field. Thanks for a cool app! Look forward to more updates and sounds!
Excellent app! If you have Maschine you should get it!
by Hmillstone on 2017/07/10 17:26
I have almost all NI product (Komplete 11 ultimate, Maschine studio, Maschine jam and 16 expansions) that being said. I really recommend to have this app as well. If you are working, on your break, airport, etc... you can put some of your ideas together and then export it to your Maschine and keep working on it. At the beginning I purchased before having all NI products that I have now and I didn't know how powerful and convenient can be this app. Also, is easy to use! Give it a try! Get the expansions as well.
Why limit it?
by Fretless33 on 2017/04/16 14:05
This app to me is more than a scratch pad for Maschine. It would be nice if they would add core MIDI to this app, so I could play it with my MIDI controller. The only way to record on my iPhone with this is by using Audiobus and tapping live with my fingers on my phone. If I use a loop I programmed then the export feature is nice, but my music doesn't always have looped drums! This app has some of the best sounds available with a huge library from which to choose, but it has been held back by making this a "stretch pad" when some of us don't have the PC version. This app is solid, but needs some advancements.
This should be free
by chaseisbrown on 2018/06/07 20:26
While the ability to continue or finish projects from the computer is very innovative, the basic elements that distinguish Maschine are absent. Working with iMaschine is very difficult in that it barely functions or even resembles any similarity to the real deal. It really feels like more of a novelty item or a toy than anything. There’s not even a traditional piano roll feature and the sliders are very difficult to gauge and control. Really could be much more of a useful tool if it was even hardware compatible. The even the most basic functions and fast workflow that make Maschine 2 such a powerful tool are simply not present within this application. Hopefully in the future it will become worth the money.
Lost all my projects
by sincerely disappointed on 2018/07/08 00:10
This used to be a really good way to sketch out ideas and get rough songs together, but support has clearly been cut and it has been extremely buggy for the past year. I’m devastated that I’ve lost ~100 projects and am left with an app that is now unusable and that I sunk money into for all sorts of content. Recording samples causes it to crash, certain user kits make it crash... pretty much most things make it crash and you risk the program getting so buggy it won’t start for days on end. Awaiting some support from NI I’m getting the projects back so will loop back and update this if necessary, but even outside of losing the projects this has been very buggy. Love maschine on my Mac and am bummed the experience hasn’t been up to par on mobile.
Great App for Church Musicians
by IsraelARB on 2017/12/05 22:15
This is a great app for making click tracks for a worship setting. I was using iMPC but the sounds on iMaschine 2 are way better. Only thing is i wish there was a way to make a playlist or setlist. I don't like it asking me whether I want to save changes or not even if i only opened a track to just play and not edit. It kills the workflow, especially when trying to change the click track in split seconds during a service. I hope they can add a playlist feature with quick smooth transitions between tracks like iMPC does.
Love it but it needs more!
by mcflu48 on 2019/06/30 16:33
Most of the reviews are correct and I agree with them. The app needs to go all the way though. I want to add effects on individual sounds, not just the whole track all the time. I wish it had more than just four tracks but I have been making due. I would like it if you could export straight to your iPhone library directly. Bring back the Traktor DJ app for iPhone. I can not stress that enough! I make most of my projects on the go and don’t have a iPad or laptop with me. These apps are essential to my mobile work flow.
This app is truly amazing !!
by Bg nm on 2017/01/09 01:59
I love everything about this app! I would really love it if there was a way that it would not lag while being paired with a Bluetooth device... every time i try to use this application while it is connected to a Bluetooth device it seems to be off by a whole eighth note:/ Another neat thing would be is if there was a live play option for the tune of the sample like there is for the dynamics. Other than these two things, it is an amazing product.
Great app!
by A11n1ckn4mesaretaken on 2018/05/07 23:15
App is great unless you need customer service or something is wrong from Native Instruments end, then you’re done. I’ve been waiting a week and a half for an instrument kit ($10 in app purchase). I’ve talked with 7 different people from iTunes to try and diagnose my download error, talked with my bank and now will be sitting on hold (have been for 40 minutes) with native instruments. By now it’s almost not worth it but I really enjoy making music from my phone and I already have NI products that I use in my studio. Native Instruments support could use serious improvements.
Everything is great!! Except the crashing
by ayydeedee on 2018/11/30 09:56
This app is simple and very easy to use compared to any real beat maker out there. It’s the next best thing besides the real beat maker. This app has simplified how beat making is for beginners. The only thing I that has been a reoccurring problem is the crashing when you go into the app, and while making music in the app. Other than that it’s really fantastic app to start having fun with. You can really make some incredible music with such simple tools to use. Worth it !!
Many great memories...
by smol and lonely keegi on 2019/02/25 02:47
I used to love using this app to make basic beats and create ideas for future songs I would produce. That is, until I could no longer open the app. A while ago, I found that I can no longer access the application anymore. This saddens me, since I had many treasured songs stored in its files. They will be missed. All I'm asking of the devs is that I can at least open the app so I can export my songs. Other than that issue, this is a great app! I hope I can recover my songs soon :(
Let build on something that’s great.
by qwconsulting on 2019/10/27 01:47
This app is dope, the sound kits could be doper. Which is the reason I’m writing this review. I would like to see a sample chopping and editing add on for this app. The sequencer get 5 stars all day. Yet I’m a sample based producer. I hate having to use 5 different apps to make a beat. It kills my work flow. So it that could be something you guys create in the future that would be dope. This app will always be in my mobile productions studio. Stay golden I’m a fan!!!
extremely limited in functionality
by Miles Standish Jr. on 2018/12/15 02:44
Plusses: sounds amazing, familiar Maschine workflow, easiest sampling on the fly you will ever encounter Minuses: extremely limited sound palette (even owning half the add on packs); a nightmare to arrange a song in; extremely unintuitive and un-ergonomic interface; limit of 4 patterns per track is unnecessarily stingy (if you have one pattern for the intro and one for the outro that only leaves you two patterns per track for the body of the song — pathetic) In short it is more of a toy than a serious musical tool, albeit an extremely complicated toy that will leave you cursing if you are tempted to try serious work with it.
Why has this happened?
by Djmust// on 2019/10/21 07:20
Either my phone is not installing iMaschine correctly 😂 or after the 2.2.2 update or whatever you guys recently did made the app go nuts !!! I can even open the expansion packs some parts of the iMaschine display panda don’t show on screen it’s soooo strange....I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the iMaschine app numerous time and nothing. Over all Great app loved it on my iPhone 8 but since I got the 11 something went wrong 😳
Please add more tracks for layering sounds

I give it a four because I feel limited when only being able to create ideas using 4 tracks on the go and trying to fit as much sound content as I can into it as I can. It would be nice to be able to mix additional sound content separately too. We are there with mobile applications working as “DAWS”. This would be an excellent upgrade with all the sounds I have purchased though this app. Cmon developers.
Improved from v1. Lacking key workflow features.
by Subimage on 2017/02/12 21:13
First lemme say this is definitely an improvement from v1. I'm using it as a quick field recorder for percussion and loop creator. Dig that they now have audiocopy, sample reverse, and ableton link implemented. Still this is missing some key features for me and I'm sure a lot of other people using this as a sound creation (instead of consumption) app. PAD COPY/CUT/PASTE. Please let us EDIT pad location in this way; so we can split large samples, organize our created kits, and double kick drums for fast playing. (It's hard to "double time" hits on the phone with such a small UI) Next...WHERE IS THE MIDI SUPPORT? Let me use my usb controllers please. Last — why can't we play "16 levels" for sample tune, velocity , etc? The sample songs are clearly using pitched samples but it's impossible to play different pitches in this app. These demo songs were obviously created in the desktop version of Maschine. This is false advertising.
Great But Needs Some Tweaks -> Desktop Import
by SmittyWit on 2017/02/10 23:12
The app is only good if you buy all the packs it offers(it's worth it if your serious). It has a VARIETY of sounds && you can basically export it in SoundCloud or IMachine for the desktop and continue your work just how you left it. My only problem is when you actually export it into the desktop. There's no way to import the project back into the app. Idk I like working on the phone better than computer. Faster workflow for me.
Needs work
by Tmokkeys on 2018/12/05 12:36
This app is GREAT!!!! I love the control it allows me to have. It’s better than the the beat machine that I had. However.... 1. It has stop working completely on IOS 12.1. It takes about 20 secs and just shuts down. VERY FRUSTRATING!!! 2. The pads are not touch sensitive for dynamics. This makes things difficult when attempting to make your percussion loops sound realistic. 3. There is no quantize in 3/4, 6/8 or advanced meters like 5/4, 7/8, etc. I am a musician. This limits me. Now there is a way for me to turn off the quantize and go manual but the millasecond delay on the pads makes it difficult. I use IMaschine to make tracks for church. Allow I have enjoy this software, the lack of updates have left me wanting more. Especially, with it not working at all. I mean I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it. Still nothing!!!! COME ON NATIVE INSTRUMENTS!!!! Did you guys forget you had an app. Let’s go!!!! Get with the program!!!
Love the App!
by KweSalik on 2018/10/24 22:26
My ONLY concern is that the app force closes on the iPhone X when the phone is in low power mode. The app will not open at all. It took me a while to figure out what it was that was causing it to force close, but you guys should try to get on that as soon as you can. Side note: it would be really nice if the app allows users to change the sound effects per instrument, or at least per scene.
Missing one thing
by 4Ever"ardo" on 2017/10/18 04:46
This app is amazing. I have loads of fun making beats using my iPad Pro. I even export to Maschine on my MacBook Pro. But one thing that would get this app 5 stars. Which it deserves 5 stars but since there is a computer version to this app and being the technology is there. I feel it would be phenomenal to use my iPad as a remote to control the software on my computer. I take my laptop and iPad with me on the go but to carry Maschine Hardware as well is just to much.
Kind of needs a new update
by Man likes books on 2019/02/26 06:07
The app is great over all and really easy to use. Though the last time there’s been an update for this has been like two years ago. With each new expansion added, the ideas for creating content seem endless. If anyone could just bring this app up to date, that would be great. The app keeps crashing when I’m trying to save kits, and naming the kits. When loading a different project.
It’s ok for sketching an idea.
by Menty Muziq on 2019/02/09 02:39
The sounds are really good and the simplicity is great for sketching out a beat idea but the this app has no integration or accessibility with other DAWs which makes it hard to continue working on your idea. The fact it has no track out option is frustrating. You would have to record each track into your DAW one at a time. The options are, You either export the whole project to be imported only in NI Maschine if you own one) or your stuck with exporting the master out.
Needs some more improvements
by Love this game but? on 2017/03/14 17:50
The whole idea of the app is good but I needs a improvement like the sampling should be recording until you end the recording not when the app wants to end it also be able to normalize the recording. I find my self coming up with ideas in this app then later working on then on the intua BeatMaker 2 cuz it has more two work with yet it also has his up and downs you can't export as a song.
The Future Of Sound
by xanderLOVE on 2017/07/25 02:50
I am a professional musician and producer and im blown away by design and power of this app. It is the future of mobile music making, but it's available right now. Worth ten times the cost. How about an opportunity to send feedback through the app? Most of the abobe creative apps have this feature. I've always got valuable feedback as a power user of this app. #NativeInstruments
Good, but very flawed.
by nick_ewald on 2019/07/09 19:47
There have been improvements made to this app over the years, but very minimally/few and far between. Recently, the developers resolved an issue I was having which I appreciate a lot. Overall, it is a good app, but it needs an overhaul. I love incremental updates, but this app has been “business as usual” for a bit too long. Needs to be refreshed in the UI department as well as under the hood/more features, etc..
Update for iOS 12?
by Paul_Blart on 2018/10/13 02:12
Any possibility of an update for iOS 12? This is a great app for producers. Since we haven’t seen an update in a year it’d be nice to see one for iOS 12. The only flaw I can see as of right now is the app’s stability. It’ll crash and won’t reopen causing the user to uninstall and then reinstall every time it crashes. Other than that, it’s a great app and well worth the money.
Love this app
by A-lazer on 2019/11/06 04:25
My father introduced me to this app and I am in love with it. It’s fun to do in your spare time! It is simple enough where I can creat a quick beat but complex enough where I can create better songs on this app than many other apps. I don’t think the app should be so expensive though. $10 plus expansions are a little annoying but other wise this is a fun great app!!!
Loyal NI Customer
by Ahahahahshdk on 2017/04/25 06:54
I'm a loyal customer to Native Instruments because time and time again they seem to blow my mind away.. this app is perfect for musicians across the board just to put a music idea down. Now there are a couple of touch ups that can happen such as post quantize as you are tapping on a phone.. delay perhaps? Minor tweaks to make it more customizable as all of your products are pretty in depth.. other than that, great product!
No audio from latest update
by Moneyd00 on 2019/09/15 22:48
The most recent update has made it so iMaschine 2 will only play through a Bluetooth connection or headphones. There is absolutely no sound or triggers when I press play without any sound accessories connected.. not sure what’s happening.. I have always used this program ever since iMaschine came out and this has never happened before so I’m kinda bummed.
Pressure sensitive feature
by Zellian26 on 2018/07/31 01:14
Ive been playing with this app for quite some time. Back when the first iMachine app came out the volume never went up and down with how hard you press on the pads. Im not the biggest fan of the pressure sensitivity especially when im playing with the drum kits it doesnt really work well for that. Wish there was a setting to turn that feature off. Still a great app tho.
😔
by srry-kun on 2019/02/26 05:13
bruh. . . I USED TO LOVE THIS APP 😩 i haven’t been able to get it to work since iOS 11.1. i updated my phone, tried to open the app immediately after an it’s been crashing ever since. i haven’t tried to reinstalling iMaschine yet but ill give an update once i do. im giving you 5 ⭐️ s b/c i hope NI can resolve this issue sooner than later; if not, can we have iMaschine 3?
Super fun
by SethTnk on 2017/09/17 04:35
Great App. A bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, it gets easier and easier to fly through and put together beats and progressions. The UI is a little windows 95 for my liking, but they can't all be as pretty as Figure. My only two complaints would be to add a step-record and/or quantize feature to the keyboard since it's latency is crap, and access to Dropbox for dropping in my own wavs and samples.
Perfect if Bluetooth Delay is fixed
by ColdFiya on 2017/02/05 19:06
The only reason I'm not giving ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is because of the Bluetooth lag! I like to record real time and not use step edit. There is a 1 to 2 second delayfrom the time you hit the pad to the time you hear the sound when using Bluetooth 🎧 or 🔊 . Other than that, this app is AMAZING!! It's this app that made me buy Maschine Studio. Please fix the Bluetooth lag to make this app 💯!!!!!
I’ve been using for years!!
by Streetking510 on 2019/09/23 16:01
However this most recent iOS 13 update ruined the interface of the app...I can’t really see anything and resume all the work I be been doing...please fix....and the only thing from making this app perfect is that there should be more FX and the option to have more fix being used at a time and at once.
Great but.....
by all my names were takin on 2019/05/13 00:13
I use this everyday. I love it, once I learned how to really use it I was off and running. But the app won’t open sometimes more then it should happen, is anyone manning this thing? I hope there’s an update soon too it’s like they forget about it for years at a time. All in all I love this program but get it together.
