Just added the iMPC to my apps today. It's quite nice. I like the look and feel and
the delivered samples are great. When they add virtual midi it's gonna be my choice for drums.
Right now I make the beats and audiocopy them to Cubasis.
This whole iOS thing is becoming quite anoying. How hard can it be to add virtual midi
support for an app that already is able to receive Midi data (the iMPC was released with
the MPC fly)? I get the feeling that there's always something missing no matter what app.
Another thing: I just don't understand why NI and Akai are so fixed on getting the user to use
their creepy host applications for further work on the stuff that you made
on the go. Sure, I'd use machine and I'd use an MPC Studio. But NOT their hosts.
They're jokes. I just want the right patch loaded with the midi data I created
on the go in my host of choice. This strategy is so lame.
They'd sell more of it when they'd keep it a little more open!
They produce good hardware and plugins. But when will they finally get it
that their hosts suck?!
