iMaschine for iPad


iMaschine is a beat making app developed by Native Instruments.  It’s an iOS emulation of Maschine, which is a popular groove production suite.  The app comes with 25 kits and over 400 individual samples.  Lay down beats using velocity sensitive drum pads and various effects.  You can also record your own samples directly within iMaschine. 

Expand your sound library with additional sound sets from the app store.  Import your own 16-bit WAV files through iTunes and export your mix as an audio file. Effects include: Delay, Chorus, Filter and Flanger


iMaschine primarily makes use of its drum pads, but there is a built-in keyboard for those who want it.  The stock sounds are good and if you own Maschine (the hardware controller and desktop software) you can import your iMaschine project sessions directly into it.


I would like to see a few more features from this app, but at $5 it is still a great buy.  I’m looking forward to more updates and new samples.
