My commute just got really interesting. I’ve tinkered with the iMaschine app for the iphone and the iPad version, FL Studio for the iPad and even Beatmaker but never found any of them to be terribly intuitive. Let’s see what AKAI does for the producer on the go.
Following in the path of the popular iMPC app for iPad, Akai Professional, in partnership with Retronyms, this week released iMPC for iPhone. Priced at just $2.99 for a limited time and including all of the core capabilities of its iPad counterpart—classic Akai Professional sequencing, sampling, and effects—iMPC for iPhone also includes an exclusive feature: 3D Perform, a powerful and innovative control that takes advantage of the motion sensor in iPhone, allowing users to tweak samples in real time by tilting the phone.
“iMPC is all about creativity … the world is now your sound library. Smartphones have given people everywhere the ability to take pictures and record video at any time. Similarly, iMPC gives people the ability to capture samples of anything, instantly, and make music on the move,” said Dan Gill, Product Manager, Akai Professional.
