INTRODUCING iMPC Pro 2.


You asked, we listened. We've partnered with Akai to bring you iMPC Pro 2.


iMPC Pro 2 fuses innovative song creation with the iconic MPC workflow. iMPC Pro gave us a powerful sampler and beatmaker, and now iMPC Pro 2 has evolved into a full fledged song creation tool with the addition of vocal tracks, Audio Units integration (our first AU app... yes!), a sleek new design and tons of new features.


iMPC Pro 2 is available now on The App Store. For a limited time only, existing iMPC Pro users can save on the cost of iMPC Pro 2 by completing their iMPC Pro bundle.

Designed exclusively for iMPC Pro 2, these kits cover some of the most iconic and cutting-edge beat genres available, from producers including ADSR, Rawcutz, SampleTools by Cr2, Niche Audio, and Sample Magic. Each kit includes 16 Hi Quality samples featuring sounds from 808’s to melodic hits and stabs, designed for the best user experience possible.


We've also updated AudioCopy for this release. iMPC Pro 2 also comes with 5 additional Sound Packs for FREE (valued at $35). Grab these packs in the AudioCopy Content Store: Essential Club Collection, Classic Cutz, Dub 2 DnB, Melodic Collection, and The Diploma! Create your song in iMPC Pro 2 and share it to YouTube via AudioCopy. This features is available for hundreds of AudioCopy compatible apps as well.

    1. Hi! iMPC Pro 2 has a couple of different exporting options: you can pull your .wavs and projects out using iTunes and iExplorer. We have a direct export to MPC desktop as well. - Taylor

  7. I don't manage to import my impc pro 1 project into impc pro 2. Tried exporting the pro 1 project, zipping it and importing it into pro 2. Didn't work.

    1. Hi! I'm sorry, let's work to fix this for you. Are you running the latest version of iMPC Pro 2? Also, what iOS and iPad are you using? If you don't mind, please email us with instructions on how you are trying to export your project in iMPC Pro 1 so that we can reproduce this at the office. :) support@retronyms.com.

      Thanks,

  9. Great news & Congrats on the new release! I tried to grab the bundle and it's showing a price of $27.99 a u thought there was going to a discount completing my app bundle? The app store literally shows that I own both impc and impc pro 2. I'm assuming that there's some error with the bundle?
