Everything is good but this......

I love that fact that you can sample songs and them remix them and so on and so forth, but Apple slammed the DMR on all of my Apple Music songs. It is much harder to sample the music that I want very quickly, and it is frustrating and time consuming. I would like for us to be able to load music from other apps like the Apple iCloud files, documents, etc. All from my iPhone.

Besides that:

The app is great! Good quality, easily accessible, and very fun!

Great potential, but limited

**Updating my review since the most recent app update. I lowered my rating to 2 stars. When are they going to listen to their customers!!! Still no interapp audio or Audiobus support. The exporting of beats still has dead space at the end of the beat making it loopable only if you trim it. This app is still no match for could be...the iPad version is much better, but the iPhone version gets tossed...what a shame.**

This app is a solid drum machine, second in sounds only to iMaschine. However, I wish iMPC worked better in the iPhone. They give the iPad version all these sweet updates and the iPhone version gets neglected. I contacted support for the app and they promise Audiobus and inter app audio is on the way, but time just ticks cool update yet. All iMPC can do for the iPhone is work as a sketch pad...if you try to export a beat it does not export it as a loopable rhythm and if you export to AudioCopy the sound gets all distorted...they dropped the ball for iPhone use 😕🤔

Amazing App

thank you so much for updating! I use this to make beats when I'm on the road all the time. it's still not easy to swipe sideways for different menus (it only works when I use my pointer finger and drag the tiny area that has hatch marks specifically), if this function were made easier it would be much easier to navigate the menus. thanks again for this amazing tool of creativity!
