yizzle got a reaction from Cupe in iMPC
Akai has release iMPC for iPhone – a new app that promises to “turn your iPhone into an MPC.”
Here’s what they have to say about it:
"Turn your iPhone into an MPC. With more than 1,200 samples, 50 editable programs, 80 editable sequences, and iconic MPC workflow, iMPC is the first app to bring the look and feel of the classic Akai Pro MPC to your iPhone. iMPC includes everything you need to create a beat quickly and easily, including built-in effects, plus the ability to create new sequences and record and overdub beats."
Time correction from 1/8 note to 1/32T with variable swing, and Note Repeat from 1/8 note to 1/32T with latch control are also built in. The app’s built-in sampler can record samples three different ways: using the mic on the iPhone, using the line input on the iPhone, or using the multi-touch turntable interface in iMPC to record samples directly from iTunes or other music libraries.
- More than 1,200 samples, 50 editable programs, and 80 editable sequences
- Exclusive iMPC sound set and classic Akai Professional sound library
- Sample from iPhone mic, line-in, or music library using multi-touch turntable interface
- Exciting “3D Perform” controls — use your iPhone’s motion sensors to control parameters!
- Export tracks to MPC Software for use with MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio
- In-app SoundCloud community, powered by CloudSeeder
- Share on SoundCloud, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or export to your computer
- 16 Levels mode: 16 levels of attack, velocity, length, and tuning
- Note Variation slider: adjust attack, velocity, length, and tuning as you play
- Trim and categorize samples, undo takes and erase samples
- Create new sequences, record and overdub beats
- Live Sequence queuing for real-time performance and playback
- Simple drag and drop program creation
- Built-in effects: delay, bit crusher, master compressor/limiter
- Time correct: 1/8 note – 1/32T with variable swing
- Note Repeat: 1/8 note – 1/32T timing, with latch
- AudioCopy beats and sequences to compatible apps
- AudioPaste samples from compatible apps
iMPC is available from the App Store

Cloud Generator: http://clang.mat.ucsb.edu/software.html
(Mac-OS9 classic only) (free) Developed by Curtis Roads and John Alexander. Cloud Generator synthesizes granular sounds in units called "clouds" and also "granulates" stereo sound files.
Pulsar Generator: http://clang.mat.ucsb.edu/software.html
