scgriff ,

Like it a lot

No fancy stuff like midi or audiobus but it is fun and immediate
The functions like 16 levels and beat repeat work well..
Keeping it simple means you can get to work on a beat and get it done quick.. Sounds are punchy enough for me.. Recommended beat maker/jam tool

Gifts Tiff ! ,

impc review- giftshoppe

Save/export function has bugs , this needs to be sorted out ASAP!
Get caught in the final screen with no way out other then quitting the app ! Not good ....

Effects need a bypass switch ......
An option to record a live session ....

Granted its a new piece of software , but if I can't record anything more then a loop which don't even export properly what good is it to me ?

You got my 7$ akai , now give me what I paid for !
I didn't pay for an unfinished piece of cluttery junk that kind of works but doesn't ....
Updates please .

Great looking interface , awesome functionality ,
With some tweaks and debugging , this has huge potential ,
Maybe you need to pay some industry brains to point u in the right direction ?....

Wish list ....
8 tracks ...
Live mix down function ....
A HOLD button .... Please <----
Arpeggiator .......
Some sample manipulation tools ...
Eg, reverse, pitch/key , Adsr contr0L ..

This app could go next level !

Shame it's not quite there yet..

Cheers wrap sheet !

Very intuitive

Got it all working in a short time due to the smart layout and the ease of use. Is lacking decent audio export function which means you have to fetch your audio exports from an iTunes computer (not so smart for an app designed for a mobile device)
I also feel the sequencer needs an editor. The sampler recording functions are very limited and lack controls such as stereo or mono input and there is no input gain. I have also found that I cannot monitor the audio input when using with iRiff Port which means I have to sample blind. Only has WIST midi over Bluetooth. This app really needs core midi support so you can sync to your external DAW.
