Dis is amazing (I made my own songs!)  Cuculele13  5 star

I love the fact that you can make music with this anywhere you want! I love the app!


Lots of great sounds....but no midi  Strizbiz  3 star

The sound library is great, lots of in app purchases that sound great and priced very nicely that makes it easy to own them all. The thing that disappoints is the lack of core midi. Not being about to use an external keyboard to play keyboard and bass line really leaves me scratching my head and wondering how in the world the developer not think to add midi? I'm perfectly fine with using the touch screen for beats and samples, but being stuck with using the onscreen keyboard for keyboard part is sad.


Super Revamped version of the Original  ChrisYemaya  4 star

Would love to be able to adjust effects for individual pads and maybe as well as adding additional effects. Was a little Salty when I found out that those who previously purchased imaschine 1 would have to repurchase the newer version ( but that's just me nitpicking as I can see the value added in the latest iteration of the app) Excited to see what the next updates are going to be

Uh tough

Refund  Uh tough  1 star

I tried the app and it barely has any beats and I want my money back . Way too expensive for a app that's not even that good


Love it!  JUnr42  4 star

I love iMaschine because it allows me to make music on the go! The only thing I dislike is the fact that it only allows four tracks!! Would be five stars if it had the capability to add more!!


Good app!  Chucksteroonerooski  4 star

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!


It's good but needs a little more improvement  Drimitri  3 star

It's a good can't lie, it's good but for instance like the sampling the pitch shift it would be nice to have on the app........ and also instead of having samples for 10 seconds why don't we maschine users have unlimited time for the samples so that where we can put it in our track export it to the software, it's like making work less complicated

Amazing!  Young Qeyse  4 star

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!


Delay and lag  ClaretsRULEEE  1 star

This app is horrible! I want a refund. The concept is awesome if it actually worked. It lags so hard never gets the timing right. I press the pads and time it how I want it, but then when I play it back the timing is completely different!!! Rip off

Thanks NI!


Love this app but......  LaGoonBalls  4 star

With the new update my individual pad sounds now clip at the end of the sample triggered and that never happen in the update pre reverb. Hope they have an update for the bugs soon.

I was sent this app via a gift. I have the first generation iPad. Shouldn't I be able to get the first imaschine version??


Thank You "NI"  GameCentralHQS  4 star

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.


It hurts.  Joagaiivhvj  2 star

I really love this app. I do. But the calibration for the timing is off by enough to completely throw you off of production. Makes using the app a waste of effort. Please fix this. I have a lot of respect for native instruments..

Reverb! Nice!  Solomon of Kleptolia  5 star

App is still moving along. Better export and sharing features. Now added reverb! This is very good. Would still like to see more direct Traktor iOS integration.

I cannot say enough good things about this app. I have had it for almost 5 years now and it's just simply incredible. A staple for my studio and creative workflow.
