Will Native Instruments ever update iMaschine or port M2 to IPad?

Apparently this is a question that won’t occur to anyone else for another few years.

    That path was suggested directly to NI but when M+ was developed they were still too much x86 centric.

    Nowadays it seems Apple Silicon transition has been took in consideration so who knows?

    I don't really have an answer about what the future might look like but I can probably say that I don't think iOS is really the priority at the moment.

    Oh well. A man can wish. Thanks @Matt @ NI there’s freedom in closure 🤷🏽‍♂️

    I would like to see the iMaschine 2 packs continue - that was a really nice way of sampling an expansion, and I assume it wouldn't take too much work. The app itself is fine, just take my money!

    Using a Maschine controller on iOS with an app closer to the desktop version would be incredible. Last year I began to play around with a few music making apps on my iPad and it can be so much fun and really powerful! Since NI already went this way with iMaschine I think they should at least keep an eye on iOS and keep up some development of the app.

    I guess, much better would be if Apple ported MacOS to iPad.... The life would be easier for all. Maybe except Apple stockholders...

    For example Microsoft Surface Pro is similar to iPad, but it runs normal Windows. Any aplication that runs on Win PC/notebook also runs on Win tablet.
