  • This App is Good But Needs Improvements

    The number one thing needed is cloud support. Actually all of their product would benefit from cloud services that way you would be able to sync all projects cross all your devices and their products instead of needing work arounds when changing devices or want projects for the computer app or vice versa. Also they need to update this for iPad Pro 11” because there are big boards around the app. I don’t think they update this app much because it seems like they aren’t trying to improve the app in general because they know it’s good. But the thing is it could be better with small changes that could drastically change the user experience. If they could fix those complaints this app would be A+ because outside of those complaints it’s really good. It’s a slightly simpler version of desktop version which is a good thing on a mobile device.
  • Amazing workflow - Devs: please don’t abandon!

    This app has my favorite workflow for beatmaking out of anything I own on iOS or Mac (and I have or have tried pretty much everything). I’m not exaggerating or joking. The “step mode” in iMaschine2 is the fastest way I have ever found to lay down bars, create variations, and lay down a solid foundation. From there, you just record (play) most of the melodic stuff (anything that requires a keyboard). The challenge with this app though is there aren’t enough tools to properly finish, mix, master the track. Not a problem, it’s great at what it does well. However, if there is no further features to follow such as a piano roll, legit mixer, ability to use outside Fx (AUV3), then please at least enable a function to export our stems to audio. I’m sitting on a bunch of tracks I like a lot but they’re sitting indefinitely because I need a way to export stems. I’d love to see further developments on this app but if not, please enable this one feature! This workflow is hugely underrated and the folks I know who actually learned it all agree - nothing comes close. It would be a shame to see it stuck in an app that is amazing like this but has some limitations that we can’t work around. Thanks for the quality product! Hope there’s more to come (or even im3??!)
  • Amazing!

    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!
  • Good....but...Still much to be desired

    Many see this as just a scratch app...yes it is,but why make us all suffer. What do I mean? As an owner of too many NI tools to mention, this app is just scratching the surface with its current state. I owned version 1 and upgraded to 2 immediately. I've been waiting for portrait mode in order to use the entire screen real estate. I've also been waiting on a proper arrange window.... Like that of the MPC Pro app....what gives? Can we also get more groups and 16 levels? Please? It would really help when bringing it into the $999 piece of gear I already own. I love the MPC App, but guess what? I'm using maschine....it would be very helpful to have similar features. I'm loving all of the updates, but they seem to come quite slowly.
  • Crashes often... decent when it doesn’t.

    I’m honestly disappointed in and with native instruments. For how many new sound packs and features they release throughout a year I feel like iMaschine 2 should run WAY more smoothly than it does on my 7 plus. I can never rely 100% for the app to even open, often times it’ll show the start screen then just crash. Funny enough, it’ll be there in the background but I can’t open it. I’m often stuck with force closing the app and trying to restart it but that rarely works. I’ve deleted the app several times, losing projects in the process, only to reinstall and nothing works. I’ve been a native instruments user for quite a while, but honestly, I’m over their slow to no response customer service and glitchy app. I haven’t even described how limited the app is, which can be cool for creativity, but c’mon native instruments, this app is begging for an update. 2-stars and I’m being generous.
  • NI, you there?

    I sunk a decent little chunk of cash into this app, its expansions, and the previous release, and it won’t open at all! All the projects I had been working on aren’t accessible! Every time the app opens, it crashes before I can get to the workspace. I’d really like to be able to use this again, it was perfect as a go-to when I wasn’t at my laptop. But now that I haven’t used it for a while, I’m starting to notice what others are saying in terms of it needing improvement before I even had this issue. Hopefully NI doesn’t forget about this one! Please don’t make me buy another 20$ (30 something including expansions I copped) app lol, just fix this one 🙃 I really hope your pricier products don’t get abandoned like this one did
  • SETLIST For onstage musicians! Reverb!!!Thanks for listening

    Great app. I'm a drummer and I actually use this to loop my click tracks during church service. I can also adjust tempo on the fly of course. The Reverb that was just recently added to the app is great too for dynamics that I can actually use during service in the loop helps create a better worship experience. I'm hoping the developers pickup on this review and also add a SETLIST. I've got so many tracks that i take too much time finding the next track, I actually end up creating a pause in service that's a little too long for what I would like to achieve, and that's smooth and fast transitions. Especially because I'm controlling it and sometimes my other hand still needs to be busy playing. Thanks!!!
  • Possible added features similar to the DAW version.

    By Shlozen
    Love the app for years now. I only wish there was a way to change pitches on a pad for multiple tones within a song without having to use more pads. As well as when adjusting the tune level or any levels for the fact if there are visible numbers to see to match different pads or changes to match without guessing until you get home and use the Maschine Studio. Last some how incorporate the slice feature and the loop feature to auto sync samples for perfect timing as well as from a 110bpm to sound the same as it did at 83bpm like the DAW version. I hope any of these could be one day added or all. Thanks for the great app and hardware/software to love using!
  • Awesome app!

    First off I want to say thank you for the compatibility update. This really is one of my favorite beat making apps. It’s easy to use, great for beginners. Many sound packs that are awesome. Pure drip is probably my favorite to make some hard rap beats with. Would love to see more sound packs similar. Quick tutorial videos in the settings would be nice. It would be helpful for us visual learners. It would be helpful to be able to easily put melody loops in loop playback with one touch. So there isn’t any need to worry about my timing and can keep my melody playing constantly well I make the rest of the beat. Hopefully that makes since. Just a hold loop button. I also would love to see more piano sound packs and orchestral. With beautiful melody loops with them
  • Mobile Powerhouse could Use a Tune Up

    I’ve been making beats with this in combination with my mk3 since the mk3 was released and I have a love hate relationship. The idea is 10/10 and I would be devastated if Native Instruments ever gave up on this app. That being said the app could use some work. The latest update moved step mode into the pattern menu instead of the old force touch design and it makes the work flow slower. Also FX could benefit from offering more than 2 slots. That being said I’ve made countless beats that started as sketches on here and I consider this app a crucial tool to be used in conjunction with desktop Maschine’s. Please continue to update and listen to user feedback!

    I’ve had this app for a long time... Like, A REALLY long time... It was working beautifully until I got this 12.9 inch iPad Pro 3rd Gen... Now, I can’t duplicate my patterns... I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and ALL MY BEATS FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS ARE GONE!! I am livid... I’m an AVID Native Instruments user and this is just unacceptable...

    By derrtiblu
    The app does not crash. But does not load any new packs. My person not able to purchase. I go to buy. And nothing!! Idk if it’s my WiFi issues or what. And the same from the collected pack. it registers dat I have bought items of the pack. but I can not buy “the complete pack.”
  • NI can you guys please listen to your customers.

    By ab saloj
    On the reviews there are concerns for improving your quality products. Why doesn’t anyone from NI come support its customers. I was expecting a lot more from you guys attending us. This app hasn’t had any improvements since it first came out. Right now when I open I can’t write different progression chords sections. Why is that. This function is so simple yet this app can’t work.
  • Sample search

    By Bryan Paul
    Would be great to have a specific sample search for example I’m looking for a crow squawking sample to add to a beat anybody no a sample kit with this sound?
  • Worked for a short time

    By Darryl_2014
    I like led this app at first—it worked well. Then all of a sudden there was this weird delay between pushing a button and getting sound. I tried a few possible fixes but nothing worked. There’s no reason why it should be doing this!
  • Plus and delete buttons pattern won’t work

    By P zillion
    What’s going on, I just bought a few packs and now my plus button to edit my track won’t work and even my delete button won’t highlight... Can you guys fix it please Thanks
  • Update needed

    By Dobledinc
    I am an veteran user since 2011 when the app first came out. I have gone through one or two updates ever since. In 2015 we were blessed with version number two but we haven’t seen any updates ever since. Please add midi control and live recording, more effects and more patterns per channel. Thank you in advance.
