  • Everything is gone

    By Derfin Shea
    I'm not sure what happened but i opened the app to finish a beat and everything is gone, my beats, kits, everything. I love this app but this is disappointing. Is there any way to fix it?

    If you want to make hot music on this app i suggest practicing with the real DAW so that this app would be no problem for you as you already have a foundation of knowledge from the actual DAW that you can apply to this app, just a heads up. Do not be discouraged!!! If you love the music it shouldn't be an issue. This is a quality app and it feels kind of silly to call this just an "app" because it is no ordinary app. The software is so good and tight and works smoothly most of the time. The only thing i can say is that since it is technically a real DAW, you might want to take it east with the tasks, if you try to press too many buttons and selections at once, it overwhelms your apple device and crashes the app. Not sure if its a apple problem or a Maschine problem. But other than that SMALL PROBLEM, This sh*t is legit.
  • This app is truly amazing !!

    I love everything about this app! I would really love it if there was a way that it would not lag while being paired with a Bluetooth device... every time i try to use this application while it is connected to a Bluetooth device it seems to be off by a whole eighth note:/ Another neat thing would be is if there was a live play option for the tune of the sample like there is for the dynamics. Other than these two things, it is an amazing product.
  • Really Like The Reverb. Some Requests.

    Thank you, Native Instruments, so much for that new Reverb effect option that was added. I find it be better than I would have hoped for and it really is fun to use on my tracks. And also thank you so much for continuing to update and add new features like that new effect. I'm very grateful for the hard work and time no doubt put into the app. I did also want to make a few feature requests and want to thank you if you'll consider adding them please. - I think it would be great if we had the ability to do a 64 steps or higher song please. - I also would hope that you will continue to please add further Effects like the great new Reverb option, thanks. Such as a Distortion Effect, possibly an Overdrive Effect, maybe something to speed up or slow down the entire song/track please and just other things of that nature. - And one last request. I was hoping that you might add a way to record live, the user adjusting effects in the X/Y window panes please? Because I can create some really neat sounds by sliding around the cursor in the X/Y windows live while the track is playing, when using an effect like Chorus or Delay or the Flanger Effect or any of them. And I would really, really love to be able to record that manipulation while my track is playing and it gets added to the overall track. I've seen this type of Effect Recording function in other music apps and I really hope that you will please consider adding this feature. Thank you. And thanks again for this new update and Effect selection. I highly recommend iMaschine 2 for all of your music-creating needs. Thanks for all that, God bless and Merry Christmas 🎄😇. iPhone 6 Plus/ iOS 10.2
  • Glitchy

    By Ohwellmando
    I for sure want my money back. App glitches when doing beats, changes time on me, etc. no thank you.
  • Would be my go to if it had core midi

    By Strizbiz
    Great app but extremely limited when playing keyboard parts, you have to use the onscreen keyboard. If I could use my irig keyboard this would easily be my go to app. Why wouldn't NI add such a fundamental feature like core midi? Aren't Germans supposed to be smart?
  • I'm not satisfied i need a refund

  • 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!!!
  • 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.
