Samplr for iPad – Music at your fingertips

It allows you to explore the sounds melody and texture using the different play modes and create your music compositions with the gesture recorder.

The app includes 7 different play modes: Slicer, Looper, E-bow, Tape, Scratch, Keyboard and Loop Player; 6 simultaneous samples (with 6 voices each); 5 sound effects per sample: Distortion, Filter, Amplitude Modulator, Feedback Delay and Reverb; Gesture recorder; High quality audio engine; Detailed user guide; Import your own samples (WAV) through iTunes.; Ready to use sample library.

      Looks like the op-1 was a big inspiration in this. Really looking forward to buying this when I can afford an iPad.

      I’ve tried this. It’s real multitouch reimagination of audio sampler interface. Must have for everyone who use sample based instruments for their music.
