Akai Pro Announces iMPC for Samsung Galaxy

Akai Professional today announced that their iOS app iMPC, is now also available from the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store.

iMPC for Android was created in collaboration with app developer Retronyms, and the app fuses the workflow of an Akai Professional MPC (Music Production Center) with tools for composing, editing and mixing music on the user’s Samsung device.

iMPC for Android at launch will be available exclusively to Samsung phone and tablet users as an in-app purchase inside Samsung’s Soundcamp, a digital audio workstation. The Soundcamp DAW enables users to record, edit and mix up to 8 audio/MIDI tracks, and also has a piano roll editor for music editing.

iMPC for Android Features:

  • More than 1,200 samples, 50 editable programs, and 80 editable sequences
  • Exclusive iMPC sound set and classic Akai Professional sound library
  • Sample from Android mic, line in or music library using multi-touch turntable interface
  • 16 Levels mode: 16 levels of attack, velocity, length, and tuning
  • Note Variation slider: adjust attack, velocity, length, and tuning as you play
  • Trim and categorize samples, undo takes and erase samples
  • Built-in effects: delay, bit crusher, master compressor/limiter
  • Export your projects for use in the desktop MPC Software or in wav format

Pricing and Availability. Akai iMPC, for Android Galaxy phones and tablets, is available now as an in-app purchase from the Soundcamp app, which is available via Samsung’s Galaxy App Store. It retails for $6.99 (£5.99 UK). For more information, visit akaipro.com.

  1. Wow. This is big. I’m interested to check out what the latency is like. Likely getting it tonight (I think it is now available).

    “Sample from Android mic, line in or music library” – Nice!

      1. I tried and tried to get iMPC Pro to function properly on my ipad air, having used the ipad as a performance tool with other apps successfully. Buggy and unreliable and no updates or communication, completely the worst way to act as the company producing it. Its the only time I felt moved enough to leave bad feedback on the app store. A horrible experience. Avoid.

  2. It’s supposed to be one of the downloadable instruments through Soundcamp (DAW), but isn’t showing up yet.

    I’ll probably hold off until I see some video reviews of this android Version as retronyms doesn’t have a good track record. :-/

  3. I only read negative comments above. I was thinking of it as a gift for my niece on her android tablet…but now i realy have doubts…anyone with better news about it?

    1. Works fine on iPad. Not sure why all the moaning… however this will only work on (some) Samsung devices – those that can run Soundcamp (Samsung’s GarageBand equivalent). If your niece can run Soundcamp she should be able to run this.

      …that said, it still hasn’t appeared in the Samsung App Store or in-app. Has anyone else actually seen it (on Android that is?)…

    2. might check the other post about IMPC some look better there, it just may an OS update that has given an issue.
      Another thing is android is not know for music making apps, although there are a few, one to check out is caustic 3, free to try out on android, free to use windows and mac, available for IOS as well

      1. Yes. Caustic 3 is really good and even has MIDI CC support. I have been using it for years (and was a beta tester for several versions). It works with your own samples as well, and they even added a new synth and more features in the latest release.
        I highly recommend Caustic 3.

  4. I do know that retronyms is slow in customer service, take 4-5 days to get an answer, plus in tabletop app, the t-pain effect is in store but not buyable

  5. Looked for impc for android everwhere, where the hell can I buy it?
    Have it on my I phone but want it on my galaxy tab
