Doesn’t work anymore!?  skinnytanner  2 star

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  Illmanik  2 star

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  SB3334  1 star

Crashes upon opening. Hasn’t worked in months


Please add more tracks for layering sounds  Daspeiker  4 star

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 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.....  all my names were takin  5 star

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  Omegadjdududeufieid  1 star

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


Thanks...  CCcrsSS  5 star

Great app... My only 2 requests would be a hold button for the arp feature. On an IPad it’s fine but when using an iPhone the keys are too small. The 2nd is a midi note editor because I can’t figure out how to edit in or out played note on the piano instruments.Not a big deal. I’m having more fun with this than my MaschineStudio because Native Access does some funky stuff 60% of the time on installs and updates that affects functionality. I know you can’t make this have all the features your Maschine2 app has so no big deal

Expeditiously  STG it's ZDV  5 star

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  J'orie  4 star

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.


Not working  Fxxkyoface  2 star

my iMaschine 2 app on iPhone isn’t opening. I don’t want to delete the app and re download as I’m afraid it will lose the projects I currently have on there. Can this be fixed please. Otherwise a refund of money would suffice. Thanks


Disappointed  grajl009  1 star

Was really looking forward to using this, bitterly disappointed when it wouldn’t get past the loading screen before crashing. Hope this gets fixed ASAP.


Features not working  harrymellon  2 star

Hello - certain features of the expansions for the app aren’t working. The App doesn’t let me Restore my Purchases or Download the latest Ultimate Collection. Very disappointed. On iPhone X.


Needs MIDI  Brad.drum34  3 star

Would love to use my MIDI keyboard with this... please add! Also would love to be able to export the instrument sounds that I’ve purchased. There’s a work around by playing the sound and exporting the song, but would love to have the ability of export for each instrument or pack.

Recording is way off.  Jman782655  1 star

Compared to the first iMaschine on iPhone 4s using iMaschine 2 on an iPhone 7Plus is a terrible experience as the record, on playback is completely different from what is recorded.

Once I purchased iMaschine 2 it did not let me restore an expansions from the previous iMaschine Don't get me wrong great app, great experience but why purchase all those expansions again ? Hungry hungry hippos


Where's the integration?  wharf99  1 star

The blurb for this app says you can open projects from the original iMaschine in v2.0. But how? There is no function to do this. Please explain. I feel like I have bought a lemon.


What happen?  TheKarmaKeeper  5 star

Guys what happen to the app? All my kits are disappeared, I've tried to restore it but doesn't work...and all my projects now are missing of some instrument or sound.. Please fix this because is not good. Greetings..

Stole my money  mixer03-03  1 star

App Crashes and won’t open  Skinny_chan  3 star

I love the app, but it frequently won’t open and crashes. I don’t want to erase the app and re-download, but I need the app to work better and be reliable when I have musical inspiration.

Menty Muziq

It’s ok for sketching an idea.  Menty Muziq  3 star

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.

DK New Era

UPDATED REVIEW 1/30/19  DK New Era  5 star

So I went thru a real rough patch with this app, because it would never open. I have found that trying to open it while in Low Power Mode is the main culprit of the problem. If this happens, when the loading screen appears and then disappears taking you back to the home screen, quit the app, turn off Low Power Mode, and reopen the app. It should work again. Thanks! Updated a year ago, that should be enough said. You spend longer trying to open the app than actually using it; and I think it’s a great app, but this is nonsense.


Update ASAP  BDFS380  1 star

I’ve been using the app on my iPad just fine. Now that I decided to use it on my phone as well the app has started to crash multiple times and sometimes the app doesn’t open or load in order for me to use. I’ve spent money on this app and would very much do like a working app to use please

disappointed devoted customer

App won’t ever open and lost songs  disappointed devoted customer  1 star

Idk what the issue is but I haven’t been able to open the app for a month! Every time I try it just shuts down. I’ve tried resetting browser database and still nothing. I tried reinstalling the app in the past to see if it would work and it deleted all my songs... I was really not happy about that. DO NOT REINSTALL THE APP if you have songs saved you will lose them all.

Under powered  Fazzcar1  3 star

A great selection of sounds(especially if bought at the introductory price) but just four instruments at a time feels very limited. No Audiobus/IAA for external instruments either. Just really a sketch pad for doodling with. I would happily pay three or four times the price for a "pro" version.

Nick Createname

Much improved, worth repurchasing at intro price  Nick Createname  3 star

A lot of great workflow improvements, and at the intro price, inclusive of purchase of all legacy kits, actually worth purchasing again if you have iMaschine 1. But... there is one *significant* feature missing which is why I dropped a review star... import of samples from AudioShare and the Document Picker API! We've all moved beyond physical connections to iTunes File Sharing at a mac at this point, even when we have the physical Maschine hardware and software! Please *fix* ASAP!
