iMPC for iPhone Reviews


iPhone X -constant crashes  Ultrasonoro  2 star

Crashes in the middle of playing, I can’t use this for a performance at all. Akai should be ashamed to put their name in this


App not working right on iOS 12!  jld!  1 star

Since updating to iOS 12 I haven't been able to use this app because every note is sustaied indefinitely. That means that every note recorded in "hold" mode acts as if I never release the pad. I have to tap it again to stop the note from holding. This momentarily retriggers the note, but cuts the sustain. It's virtually unusable like this for anything other than short little bursts of sound like snares and closed hats. PLEASE FIX!!!


IMPC  Delvacchio9  3 star

I like it but it could of been better but my favorite is the sampler but need to learn how to control it


Bluetooth Issues  Mackk01  1 star

This app use to be so useful until suddenly I couldn’t use it with my Bluetooth. Can the developer please give us a solution to this problem?


Do not buy  Mikedean808  1 star

This app crashes constantly when editing programs. If you are going to use this to make music think again. You’ll spend half of your time saving and reloading. Steer clear and just buy a MPC.


a disgrace  subrhcosheo48495  1 star

this has no relation to the workflow of an mpc, it is just drum pads with stock samples and a sad excuse for a workstation

reilee williams

cool app, but it doesn’t work with my bluetooth headphones  reilee williams  1 star

outside of this problem, the app is alright, but the fact that i get this weird sound when and only when my bluetooth headphones are connected is really disappointing and annoying. does anybody have a solution? this is beyond frustrating.


Impc pro  Jfisher125  1 star

Can we get an updated app....please

🚨🚨🚨  3 star

Please add a way to delete samples right from the app we all don’t have computers

There is something wrong  Dink Jenkins  1 star

This app became useless. The sound is glitchy and it crashes.


A little buggy but awesomely powerful  LetterAfterZ  4 star

This app is fantastic, it may have a few bugs but once you know what they are they're easy enough to work around. I've put together about 15 tracks with this app involved and I must say it holds up pretty well against real gear.


Don't waste your money  Sndrthsndr  1 star

Crashes all the time


What do you expect?  Ifwhats  4 star

There are a few reviews that compare this to the original, of course it's not! This is an app you use whilst killing time and has the potential to yield results. If you're buying this as a replacement to your 2000xl you're a silly duffer.


No no  MickOxford  2 star

Not good. Lacks almost every feature you need to make serious music. Akai... I love my MPCs... Seriously, why would you release this useless app? Why would you ruin your reputation like this? Where is the company that once built the MPC60, MPC3000... and also the 2500 and 1000? Now you just release things like this app. It's sad :(


Good idea, few problems.  Salbo223  3 star

I love: Being able to sample music that's on your phone + live sounds, the beat pads, 4 channel mixer, exporting, pitch shifting and sample library. I hate: Pressing the audio paste button makes the app crash immediately. This is a huge problem because even though I know, I still sometimes touch it, loosing everything I was working on. tracking in a song when sampling is very, very painful with the vinyl needle. Recording is just terrible; If you record and make 1 wrong note, on any track at any point, back to the start for you. There is no undo.

Finn the dog

Only for the Akai fans!  Finn the dog  2 star

It lacks a zoom function when chopping samples. Also no auto chop function to be found, therefore chopping and assigning samples becomes very tedious. Beatmaker 2 is a much better and fully featured app. Akai - I love most of your products, but this one is a let down! Step your game up!


Good  CorruptFrequency  4 star

Im really liking it! Only downfall is it crashes occasionally & always crashes when I try sharing my sequence to soundcloud. Overall my favourite beat making app so far for iPhone.


An awesome addition to iPhone Beatmaking!  engelberthumperdink  4 star

This app really is awesome. It inherits all of the powerful iPad features and gains it's own unique feature called 3D Perform Mode. This uses the iPhone's gyroscope to allow you to manipulate parameters my tilting your phone. It does loose the classic Akai kit found on the iPad making it half the size. If they want 5 stars retronyms need to add Audiobus support badly! Please listen to your users Retronyms :)


The best beat maker is the one you have with you  Monad  5 star

I always have iMPC with me on my phone. Never know when inspiration strikes.

Broski 37

Please Add more samples & drum kits!!  Broski 37  3 star

I've had this app for a few years and was never quite happy with it. I can't stress this enough, I'm not too happy the fact that the default drum kits are weak. Especially for hip hop ,we need better snares, kicks, hi-hats, shakers, you name it.My point is there is not many options for hip hop or other genres for that matter, we need hip hop samples too, something new,, most samples on here are primarily for pop and house music, which does not fit my taste. I'm not just speaking for myself, I'm speaking for many others too, keep in mind there are still people who use this app. Don't get me wrong, I love this app even though there have been inconveniences with bugs and crashes, just please take the time to add more drum kits, not just for hip hop but many other genres .I've had no problem with sampling songs and all but I never have any good drums to make a good beat with, most kicks and shares are weak and boring.People spent money on this for a reason, to produce good beats, but not everyone likes pop and house samples. And again please add more genre samples especially drum kits. I've seen the same ones since 2014 that's just sad. come on people something needs to change and people want something new, besides the old boring ones, Thanks for taking the time to read this.


AMAZING  6Bean  4 star

This app does it all expect have a cloud feature but that's okay. Other than having a place to save all of your work, I would much rather appreciate if they allowed you to delete sounds you have made by recording from samples just to clear up space. That would be extremely handy. But as of right now it's the best app on the market of this kind


Dope  Ken_lilT  5 star

Very cool to have MPC technology on my iPhone. Real easy to use and has some kick to it once you plug into a sound system!


Years  rubberizes  1 star

Excited about prospect of working AudioCopy function,but years later still not working,BUY BeatMaker,works perfectly


CRASHES ON LAUNCH !!  m3f4d0n1  1 star

Bought this app for $3 installed and it keeps repeatedly crashing RIPOFFF DO NOT BUY I've had no luck after resetting my phone several times and even turned my data just to get passed the launch screen to at least get a glimpse of what I purchased WHATS GOING ON ???


Worst APP management EVER  Quiksandd9  1 star

To everyone wondering if AKAI will fix this APP that they CHARGE for, they are oblivious. I called AKAI and the man I spoke with told me he is unaware with the issues on the app. I tweet them constantly and sent emails yet no response nor an update. This was a waste of money and space and I suggest to anyone reading this review NOT to give AKAI your money.


Very Promising but Dissapointing.  SteveLikesTacos  1 star

It started off as a good easy to use app, but then when it came to sharing it led to disappointment. The Audio becomes corrupted after sharing & ruins the song, all that hard work for nothing. Thanks IMPC for wasting my time.


Crashes on me  DaRealDimSumLuv  3 star

Everything was fine up till a few days ago when the app kept crashing on me. Every time I open it, it auto closes. Unsure of what to do!
