Retronyms has partnered with industry giants like Akai Professional and Arturia to create some of the Tabletop-Ready Apps, like iMPC, iMini, and iProphet! Using the Tabletop features of time stretching and pitch shifting, you can slice loops and time stretch them to different tempos and pitches in iMPC Pro. You can also use sliced loops from purchased AudioCopy sound packs inside Gridlock and iMPC Pro. Loops from these sound packs will automatically match the tempo of your sessions.

Tabletop is an audio playground where you can create beats, compose songs, mix live, make mashups with samples from your iPod library, and more... the possibilities are endless. Plug the output of a keyboard into a delay to add an echo, or wire it up to a mixer and adjust the pan. Chain up multiple effects to create new and evolving sounds.

Very good app except for 2 things

I love this app to death! However, there are just 2 things in need of repair. 1, the internet connection for purchases. I can’t seem to connect the app to internet no matter how much I try. 2, Using other apps to record and whatnot in this is a little clunky and confusing. I can’t seem to be able to record or transfer anything.

Just fix these 2 things and you got a winner!

So much potential here! Was amazing but feels dated now.

When this app came out, it was everything I wanted in a tablet jam station, but the aesthetic, performance and method for instrument integration hasn't remained current.

I think if they showed it some love, it could become a welcome alternative to aum- reduce the highly skeuomorphic look a bit, open up compatibility to auv3 and maintain support for the latest screen sizes and it would be truly competitive and appealing to many people. The spatial/environmental metaphor is extremely well-executed and has many thoughtful touches; it is a rare case where the interface adds to the fun of making music, but is still competent and sophisticated. Here's hoping there is a plan for tabletop, it deserves to live on!

Fix the crashes! Tease an update, No fixes

Why is it that the APP will work great and then suddenly just crash despite updates. Running current IOS and always update. Fun easy to use and just plain aggravating. Notes wont trigger and like everyone else states it crashes and for no reason. It crashes more with new OS. Maybe no one is looking at the reviews or the APP has been abandoned and cannot be fixed. It could deserve 5 stars especially if iSem could be used with it(amended 11/30) it still crashes not as often but does. Now has tendency to drop notes. Maybe the app should eliminate some effects or simplify to just drums and bass. The problem just goes on.
