NEW iMPC Pro Pack: Soul Provider

Warm, divine sounds. 

Akai Professional proudly presents Soul Provider, our latest iMPC Pro Pack. We have no doubt you'll like this one. We've been playing with it at the office and are enjoying the smoothness of each sound. Soul Provider is both versatile and classic, allowing you to expand across genres like Dilla-inspired boom bap and future R&B.

If you missed it last week, we updated iMPC Pro 2! iPad Pro users now have optimized pads and everyone gets access to our new Automation Editor. We're working on a tutorial for YouTube that will be up next week. Do you want to see more videos from us? Comment below with your suggestions for topics.

New features. New fixes.

Introducing iMPC Pro 2 – Version 2.0.8

We are excited to announce the latest version of iMPC Pro 2, version 2.0.8! We're excited to bring you this list of new features and bug fixes.

We've got a new feature for your, our Automation Editor! To access it, just tap the Timeline when you're creating an Audio Unit Track or Drum Track. When you're in the Timeline, you'll see the new Params tab in the lower right.

Here's what's included: 
- Brand new automation editor feature (Timeline -> PARAMS tab on AU or drum tracks)
- Large pads on bigger iPads!
- The mic for audio tracks can now be toggled off so that the user can record automation without overwriting the audio
- Fixed dragging sequences from one bank to another. You can now also hover any drag/droppable item over a bank number to flip to that bank, allowing for one-finger drag/drop between banks.
- Ableton Link LED in session menu now appears lit if ABL on when restoring a session
- Fixed pulldown display for 4-channel+ audio input devices (NOTE: higher channel numbers won’t work, but they won’t crash like they used to and the labeling is correct)
- Fixed pad input on AU tracks: It no longer records the pitch wheel at 0 with each hit
- Fixed crash when plugging/removing headphones then immediately adding an audio track

If you are happy with this update, please leave us a review on the App Store page! If you have any questions or need help, please email us at Thanks!

March Madness ends tonight.

We've been following along with March Madness this month. Shout out to the winning ladies at Notre Dame! We're ready to see who wins the men's tournament tonight (and we're hoping it'll be Villanova).

We originally picked Virginia to win it all, but we were bummed to report that our bracket tanked pretty early on in the tournament! We decided to put iMPC Pro 2 on sale while the tournament was going on, along with a select few sound packs. It's your last day to get iMPC Pro 2 for 50% off.

Comment below if you've been watching the tournament! Who are you rooting for?

March Madness 🏀

This year, we're participating in March Madness, the NCAA tournament for college basketball. I bet you probably thought our office is full of only musicians. You're right. Well, we here at Retronyms HQ are also pretty big basketball fanatics. Check out our bracket below and play along with us:

We'll be following along until the final game on April 2nd. We're betting on each of these teams, and if they win, so do you. If you see a blue Retronyms logo next to a team name, that means that a sound pack is going on sale. If you see an orange Retronyms logo next to a team name, that indicates an app going on sale. 

We'll save the details for later, but you should know our biggest sale starts now. If you haven't tried iMPC Pro 2 yet head over to the app store and check it out. iMPC Pro 2 is on sale NOW for just $12.99 until the final game.
