If you have a Maschine or Maschine Mikro I highly recommend getting the iMachine for iPad, Ipod or Iphones. I have been using it for months now and it has never given me any issues and has worked great every time. I am now able to work with the “maschine” anywhere that I am because I use it on my iPhone 4 and iPad and then export the project to work on it more when I get back to my studio.

I do not choose to use it much on my iPhone because the screen is so small but on my iPad 2 it looks amazing and it is just like having my real Maschine with me at all times. The interface is easy to work with and pretty much has the same features of the actual Maschine or Mikro.

This app is worth having and it only cost about 5 dollars from the app store. This is only available at the current moment on Apple phones and products. There is no Droid support at the current time but I would expect they would integrate that in the near future with the rise of Droid phones and products.
iMaschine comes with included kits but you can also purchase more kits from the app store like the Platinum Bounce, True School, Transistor Punch, Vintage Heat and Dark Pressure. My favorite one that I have purchase so far has been the Platinum Bounce because of the fat drums and beats that have that “club” feel and sound to them. But always end up EQ’ing them any ways once I get back to my studio.
You will need to have an iPad 1 or 2, iPhone 4 or Ipod touch running iOS 4.3 or higher for it to run properly, I am not sure about the newer iPads yet but I would think they have made it available to them now too as well.
