  • Fun to play with

    Really fun to put ideas down before moving into the studio!
  • Needs some updates in iOS 11.

    By Deviantkirby
    If your phone locks, iMaschine has no sound. I’ve used this app for years and this is new and annoying. Please fix this. Also I agree with other commenters that the 3D Touch needs a way to be turned off.
  • Was such a great app

    By Big jahlife
    After Deleting the app and reinstalling it it opens up every time now but guess what I lost all of my tracks that I’ve worked on I work every single kid pack for this app in the developers has not updated in over a year!! I want my tracks back or my money back thank you.
  • Was the greatest.

    By Kouchiedohne
    This app was the greatest app music makers using iOS... since iOS 11, the app won’t open which has left severally handicap simple because it was/is a vital part of music production setup. I can’t believe I’m giving this app a 2 star! Smh.
  • It Crashes Constantly on iOS 11.2.2

    By Joshua D.
    Update: I just noticed this app hasn't been updated in a whole year. They have time to release new sample packs for us to buy, which I've bought every one of them. But, the app won't work for me at all and just crashes to my home screen every time I try to open it, like I've detailed below in my original review. I wish their priorities were more about keeping the app stable and in working order, than releasing new sample packs for us to buy only. I give you money, for the price of the app and the constant packs I buy. I'd hope you return the favor and fix the app so that I can actually use it please. As I said, it's been a whole year since you've touched this app and that's just straight up neglect in my opinion, bordering on unprofessional. Original Review: iMaschine 2 would normally be a 5-star app in my opinion. But, I can no longer even open the program due to its constant crashing on iOS 11.2.1. I'm running the app on an iPhone 6 Plus and every time I attempt to open it, it loads up the main logo screen then it crashes back to my phone's home screen every single time. Instead of leaving this review, I first tried to email Native Instruments with this bug report. But, I thus far haven't heard back them. And because of that I was hoping that this review would get their attention instead. So, with this crashing it just means that I cannot use an app I paid good money for at all. I would hope and ask please that N.I. please figure out what's causing this bad crashing problem and release an update soon that fixes it. Thanks if you would, I would be very grateful for that. If it wasn't for me not being able to use the app at all. I would most definitely gives iMaschine 2 5-stars as I said. To me, it's absolutely a one-of-a-kind application for creating awesome beats on your Apple devices. I just wish that I could actually still use the program. Thanks if you release a fix for this heinous crashing bug and God bless. iPhone 6 Plus/ iOS 11.2.1

  • Tighten up N.I we won’t something more powerful

    By Ceez561
    I am a big native instruments user a.k.a. fan I just want you guys to update to match up or even beat the competitors on the iOS first off let me tell you guys something I have BeatMaker 3 and I also have a MPC pro...BeatMaker 3 is way better than this.. but I feel that I am being un-loyal due to the fact that I’m using other iOS music making apps,I give this 2 Stars Only because we are limited
  • Crashes on startup

    By Saint Eskimo
    With the latest updates to iOS iMaschine will no longer open on my iPhone 6s. The app sits for several long moments on the splash screen and then bombs. It’d be great if Native Instruments showed their app more love. When it works iMaschine is top notch.
  • Simply Amazing 🙃

    By AkilTW
    Butt. PLEASE UPDATE 😩🙏🏽 Im in love with Imaschine
  • Pretty annoying on iOS 11

    By vegathavillain
    UPDATE FOR IPHONE X YALL HAD ENOUGH TIME. I DIDN'T SPEND OVER 20 DOLLARS ON THIS APP FOR ZERO UPDATES, I UNDERSTAND YALL JUST DROPPED NEW HARDWARE AND ALL THAT BUT LETS GET THIS DONE. Overall, an AMAZING, AMAZING app. Super intuitive and sinple but After having it since launch I still have a few gripes: - still no number sliders so I have to guess and listen to see if a sample is pitched the same or at the same volume. ( cmon bruh) - no way to shut off 3D Touch in app, so if I’m hitting a pad I might accidentally screw up recording because the app thinks I’m trying to use a 3D command. ( common sense function bruh) - on iOS 11 when loading a sample sometimes the slider glitches - still no way to stretch samples (BeatMaker has this and more so it’s definitely possible and there’s ZERO excuse) - no auto chop which on an iPhone app would make things WAY easier than chopping samples then still having to go and manually load each one. ( also something beat maker has) While it’s my go to app and has been since the first one, it’s super limited for no reason. I actually went it and bought a Maschine Mikro because I love this app so much and it’s collecting dust because this is so much easier to use, but you guys shouldn’t limit it like you are, I would rather have these simple functions than a new beat pack every month.
