Ok so you're gonna be bummed out if you just got a Samsung phone so you could be the first to have Manga Carta earlier this summer. Not only was the album not Jay-Z's best work, but now Akai just announced the iMPC app exclusively for the iPhone.
Now you have all the classic MPC functionality to make new electronic music in your hand. From laying down ideas to recording a full song, this app pretty much does it all. Best part is it's $2.99. No, that is not a typo . . . it is two dollars and ninety-nine cents.
So if you're not feeling Jiggaman's album, play like Dangermouse and make your own version. Timbaland infomercial not included.
