Cumberland, RI USA (February 27, 2017) — Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of music equipment for performers and producers, today announced popular iOS app iMPC, is now also available from the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store. Developed in concert with Retronyms, a leading iOS and android app developer, iMPC— previously an iOS exclusive—fuses the acclaimed workflow of an Akai Professional MPC (Music Production Center) with cutting-edge tools for composing, editing and mixing music on your Samsung device.

IMPC for Android at launch will be an exclusive to Samsung phones and tablets as an in-app purchase inside Samsung’s Soundcamp. Soundcamp is a Digital Audio Workstation app with professional capabilities and an intuitive interface, enabling users to record, edit and mix up to 8 audio/MIDI tracks. There's also a piano roll editor to edit music with pinpoint precision. Akai Professional has worked closely with Samsung to optimize the iMPC experience for the new Galaxy Tab S3 and other popular Galaxy devices.

With more than 1,200 samples, 50 editable programs, 80 editable sequences and iconic MPC workflow, iMPC is the first app to bring all the functionality of a classic Akai Professional MPC to a Samsung Galaxy Android Device. iMPC for Android includes everything needed to create beats quickly and easily, including built-in effects, with the ability to create new sequences and record and overdub beats. Time correction from 1/8 note to 1/32T with variable swing, and Note Repeat from 1/8 note to 1/32T with latch control are also built in. The app’s built-in sampler can record samples three different ways: 1) the mic on the Samsung device; 2) the line input; 3) the multi-touch turntable interface in iMPC to record samples directly from other music libraries.
