  • Constant CRASHING On My iPhone 6 Plus

    By Joshua D.
    Updated Review: I just read through a bunch of the reviews and I noticed that I'm not the only one experiencing these constant crashes when attempting to open the app. Many other reviewers are saying the exact same thing is happening to them. Especially on the iPhone 6 and 6S models. If anybody is thinking about deleting and reinstalling the app to fix the crashing problem. Well, I would strongly advise you to NOT do this. That is what Native Instruments told me to do when I emailed them telling them about the constant crashing of the app on my iPhone 6 Plus. And it did absolutely NOTHING to fix the crashing problem. All it did was help to erase my many, many saved songs and erased literally hundreds upon hundreds of samples I had imported over the years. I cannot tell you how upset I am about all of that time wasted importing those samples and that they are now gone. The only thing I would recommend is people in the same boat to all email the developer and leave reviews mentioning this terrible crashing problem. Deleting and reinstalling will most likely not fix your problem and will only anger you when it erases all of your saved songs and custom samples that you imported. This is so unprofessional that Native Instruments hasn't updated this app in over a year. And with all the money I've given you guys, well, I feel absolutely ripped off right now. Why won't you do the right thing and make this app compatible with iOS 11 and especially the iPhone 6 Plus model and others? As I said, I've given you tons of money not only buying the app to begin with. But I have purchased every single sample pack you've released. I've probably spent upwards of $30-$50 on an application that won't even open at all now because you refuse to update the program. It's unethical that I've spent all of that money and have nothing to show for it now. Please update and fix this app. When it worked it was the absolute best music program in my opinion. But now it's just money wasted if you purchase it really. Original Review: I cannot use this app anymore since iOS 11, because it constantly crashes on my iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 11.2.6. I reached out to the developer and there only advice was to delete and reinstall the app. So, I reluctantly did that and in the process all of my saved songs and hundreds of imported samples were erased. But it did nothing to fix the constant crashing of the app. I try to open the app, it loads the splash screen then it crashes back to my home screen, nearly every time I attempt to open it. Thus, all of that time and effort I put into creating songs and the vast amount of time I spent literally importing hundreds and hundreds of custom samples was completely wasted. Just wonderful...... I might have avoided all of this if the developer would actually give this app some attention (besides releasing new sample packs to buy, which I've bought every single one). And instead updated this app so it would work with iOS 11. But, no, iMaschine 2 hasn't seen an update in over a YEARS time. It's been over a year since this app has received any attention from Native Instruments. This wasn't a cheap app either. So, I really want to plead with Native Instruments to please uphold your end of the bargain with me purchasing this app, and every single sample pack released. And to please fix the program so that it will work with my iPhone 6 Plus on iOS 11.2.6. I did what you recommended and deleted and reinstalled the app. And lost tons of work and time I had put into it for nothing. So, again, I beg you to please fix the app so that it will work for me again. I find it ridiculous that you haven't put out an update, patch or bug fix in over a year. You have my money, lots of money I've given you and I don't currently have anything to show for it since I can no longer use this program.
  • iPhone X compatibility update? Any update?

    By Ze Bender
    Do you guys plan on updating this app for iPhone X or iOS 11 at all? MIDI would be cool too. Either way letting us know would be cool. Overall great app.
  • Best App Ever!!!

    By IMerriweather
    I’m very new to beat making and in a short time (after a view tutorials) I was making beats that sound very professional. The app is very stable and well worth the money. In no time I was itching to buy expansion packs. In the near future I hope to buy the MK3 by Native Instruments. In the meantime m, I’ll rock out on this. Just a few suggestions: 1) it would be awesome if you could copy and paste a sound from one bank to another. When I try to customize my pads, I forget where a sound is located. 2) the sliders for TUNE, GAIN, etc. are cool but if there were numbers or percentages that would be even better. That way you could adjust with precision. 3) more expansion packs OR split them up so you can have more options. The regular expansion packs are $50 but have lots of sounds and instruments. It would awesome to have some type of access to ALL of the sounds. Even there had to be a Street Swarm I and II. Again this is an awesome app. Hours and hours of fun. Has truly inspired me. Thanks and keep putting out that hot content!!! P.S. I’ve purchased the MPC app and Beatmaker and this hands down superior. Just in the range of sounds and ease of use. Perfect for a beginner like myself. UPDATE 4/10/2018 Shortly after writing this review the app began crashing on me. Periodically it won’t open. Sometimes for days. Starting to become a real bummer.

  • Has great potential but only 4 tracks???

    By O-SKI-D
    Please listen to your customers. We need more than 4 tracks and also the ability to use an external keyboard Bluetooth or midi. These are essential features that every iOS daw has except native instruments iMaschine, If people invest into your products, you should accommodate them.
  • No MIDI

    By futureconduit
    Having no MIDI capability makes this app useless for me. Uninstalled. Come on NI...
