San Francisco, CA USA (December 14th, 2017) – Retronyms, pioneers of pro music production, performance, and expression on multitouch platforms, today announced the official release of iMPC Pro 2. Following up the groundbreaking original, iMPC Pro 2 elevates song production for mobile musicians by adding new track types and enhancing the beloved drum tracks feature from iMPC Pro.
With the addition of vocal tracks, support for Audio Units, and a sleek new design, iMPC Pro 2 ($24.99) is now a full-fledged song creation tool, capable of creating sophisticated tracks anywhere inspiration strikes.
iMPC Pro 2 also adds support for Audio Units — Apple’s standard for hosting and connecting musical instrument and effects apps. This enables any Audio Unit app to function as a digital audio plug-in within iMPC Pro 2 as an Audio Unit Track. Within the audio tracks, users can instantaneously time warp, pitch shift, and rearrange their audio clips to their liking. The sophistication of real-time manipulation is captured in a simple workflow and sleek interface. Users can choose from multiple input sources, including external mic channels, hardware audio interfaces, and Inter-App Audio.
iMPC Pro 2 features a new library of built-in, high-quality sounds. Designed exclusively for iMPC Pro 2, these kits cover popular and cutting-edge genres from world-class sample libraries including ADSR, Rawcutz, SampleTools by Cr2, Niche Audio, and Sample Magic.
In addition, five custom sound packs are available for no extra charge in the AudioCopy Content Store (valued at $35). Essential Club Collection, Classic Cutz, Dub 2 DnB, Melodic Collection, and The Diploma were exclusively curated for iMPC Pro 2, featuring instruments and samples by iconic producers across an array of genres.

“iMPC Pro 2 represents the next stage of evolution for the iMPC series. It takes the classic beat-making workflow found on the original and adds something we've been working on for a long time - the ability to rap or sing over the beat you’ve produced. This evolves the mobile beat-making app concept into a more complete song-creation tool. It has synchrony with what Akai has been working on with MPC desktop and their hardware as well." — JP Walton, Co-founder of Retronyms
iMPC Pro 2 is available now on The App Store for $24.99. For a limited time only, existing iMPC pro users can upgrade to iMPC Pro 2 for $15.
