Pro 2 FAQ 🎶

Our support cue gets a few common questions, so we wanted to leave you with these resources! Curious about something that isn’t answered here? We’d love to help. Email us at support@retronyms.com and we’ll help you out.

Q: I’m trying to load xx Audio Unit and it isn’t working. What do I do?
iMPC Pro 2 can host AUv3 instruments, but currently doesn’t support AUv3 effects. iMPC Pro 2 itself also cannot be hosted as an AudioUnit, but may be used over Inter-App Audio. Here’s a comprehensive list of AUs available!

Q: I downloaded iMPC Pro 2 but there aren’t many sounds available. How do I get the sounds?
First, download our free app, AudioCopy (available for both iPhone and iPad). Once you download the app, tap “Content Store”. You’ll need to sort by genre, and scroll until you see “Pro 2 Packs”. Tap the “Buy” button and follow the suggested steps, but you won’t be charged! The content is free.

Q: How do I use the app?
We recommend you start here to get a quick overview of iMPC Pro 2. We partnered with Loopmasters and Akai to make these tutorial videos as well. To dive into the iMPC world, check out our iMPC Pro Log series and learn how all of these features work at a basic level.

Q: I want to make an AU track, but I don’t have any Audio Units. How do I get one?
We made the ultimate AU list, and it’s constantly being updated! Developers email us with submissions and our team adds them as soon as we can. Check out the list to find your new AU, but we recommend using instruments to be compatible in Pro 2. Note* These links are affiliate links, so when you click on them, we earn a small profit.

Q: What is an iMPC Pro Pack and how do I get one?
An iMPC Pro Pack is a Sound Pack curated to lay out perfectly in iMPC Pro 2 with kits, programs, sound adjustments, and mute/solo groups. iMPC Pro 2 comes with free iMPC Pro Packs, which are located in AudioCopy. To purchase additional content, tap the “Sort by Producer” section to see all of the Akai iMPC Pro Packs! We release one to two iMPC Pro Packs per month.

Q: I wanted to use the Spotify feature, but I don’t have very much control. Why?
This is due to a limitation on Spotify’s streaming service, which limits streaming to a 30 second clip of the track. If this increases in the future, we will be sure to extend the feature. To have more creativity, we recommend using Spotify to figure out what track you want and then purchasing the song via Apple Music! Then you can import any section of it in our iTunes Sampler (right next to the Spotify button).

Q: How do I get my project into MPC Desktop?
Great question. Here’s how:

1. Open the session you wish to export
2. In the session menu, opened by tapping the icon on the upper-left corner of the screen, select “Export for MPC Desktop” under the Options heading.
3. On your desktop machine, go to iTunes, select your iDevice, and then tap File Sharing  
3. Select iMPC Pro 2 from the list of apps
4. Drag the MPC Export folder to your desktop
5. Inside of this folder is the xpj file which can be opened in MPC desktop.
