Akai Professional and Retronyms have a free update to iMPC Pro – their MPC workstation app for iPad – that adds two major new features: Loop Slicing and Time Stretching.
Here are the updates in iMPC Pro, Version 1.3:
- Added Slice Loop mode to the Editor.
- Added support for sliced loops on pads.
- Added support for sliced loops from the Content Store.
- Added “Paste All” — now you can paste entire folders from AudioCopy with one tap.
- Fixed CloudSeeder “latest” feed.
- Various bug fixes.
- Improved integration with Content Store.
Here’s the official video intro:
Perform and Produce with Sliced Loops
iMPC Pro 1.3 supports time-stretchable loops on any Pads in your Programs. Drop a loop onto a Pad, and it will automatically match the tempo of your Sequence. Freely change pitch with 16 levels and note variation to perform with loops at different pitches or ‘push it to the extreme’ for stretching audio effects.
Loops from the Content Store are compatible, as is any .wav file with standard loop metadata (acidized). You can also create your own from any sample, with the new improved Editor.
Sound Editor 1.3
In the updated Sound Editor, you’ll find a new tab. Next to Trim and Chop to Pads is Slice Loop. Take any loop of audio, mark the beats, and your sliced loop will automatically match your Sequence tempo at any pitch.
Any sample can be Chopped to Pads or Loop Sliced. You can also open loops from the Content Store and chop them to pads in one tap.
iMPC Pro is available for US $12.99 in the App Store.
