MASCHINE For iOS

Native Instruments introduces iMASCHINE groove creation app for iPhone and iPod touch      08/10/11
Native Instruments has introduced iMASCHINE, an intuitive groove creation app for iPhone and iPod touch. They say that, with four flexible tracks, real-time sampling and loop recording, a range of classic drum machine features, high-quality effects and an expandable arsenal of studio-grade drum and instrument sounds, iMASCHINE allows users to conveniently sketch out distinctive, hard-hitting grooves on the go. Grooves can be easily exported to a computer, uploaded to SoundCloud, or even transferred into the full-featured MASCHINE groove production system for detailed editing and arrangement.
Here's more of what NI has to say...
iMASCHINE complements the acclaimed computer-based MASCHINE range with a mobile component, and distils Native Instruments' profound expertise in sequencing, sampling, audio processing and sound design into the company's first app for iPhone and iPod touch. iMASCHINE takes an especially musical and seamless approach to groove creation, with all areas of the interface carefully designed and optimized for intuitive and efficient touch-screen operation. Each of the four tracks can be switched between a 16-pad matrix for drums, a highly playable dual octave keyboard for instruments, and a loop sampler that can record audio from the built-in microphone in sync with the beat. The live-mode sequencer in iMASCHINE automatically detects and adjusts the loop length of any recording, allowing all four tracks to come together seamlessly and naturally into one cohesive groove.
iMASCHINE comes with a versatile range of distinctive drum kits that cater to a wide range of electronic music styles, complemented with studio-quality lead, bass and keyboard sounds, all derived from the professional MASCHINE sound library. The sonic arsenal can be easily extended by sampling sounds directly through the microphone on iPhone or iPod touch, by importing individual samples from a computer, and through in-app purchase of dedicated iMASCHINE sound expansions available through In-App Purchase on the App Store, with 'Vintage Heat', 'Transistor Punch', and 'Swagg City' already available at release.
Pricing and Availability:
iMASCHINE is available for $4.99 / 3,99 EUR from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch.

If NI had allowed users to load their own samples I think iMaschine would have been great. From what I have about read iMaschine though, users will only be able to load additional sounds from NI for extra $$$

You can load any samples you want from anywhere. I've loaded my own drums samples into it.

Audio copy and paste would be nice. Otherwise, a fine program for a fiver. Limited, sure. But anyone raised on 80s drum machines most likely won't have a problem with it.
