Excellent, needs some small fixes

I really love this app. Its easy to use, it responds and records quickly, and it is not complicated. My only concerns are the quantization occasionally moves the note where I don't want them (perhaps I need to be more accurate), but the biggest issue is it is incredibly difficult to maneuver the editor. The selector works alright, but zooming in and out is nearly impossible, and I end up moving notes when I don't want to. Also, the undo button is not obvious, and I never know if I accidentally moved something whether I will undo a mistake or a purposeful change. Its infuriating. If you can get by that, it is a fantastic app.

For those of you wondering, you can import voice memo recordings by going into the apple recording app and hitting the share button.

Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the zooming.

Sampler with Grid Editor

The ability to record sounds on the fly to pads, to edit the sounds (you can zoom way in), and to copy/paste them on the grid gives a lot of flexibility. The variety of drum grooves built into the app can you be used with your sounds to get a beat going.

With Audiobus 3 and IAA support you can combine Samplebot with other apps or record output from other apps into the Samplebot pads.

The ability to zoom in on the grid and shorten the length of the regions on grid adds another layer of options to explore. The ability to loop a section of the timeline and record into the grid makes adding to your project a breeze. Naming the pads allows you to easily keep track of the sounds you're working with. The ability to time stretch is also a nice feature of the app.

In many ways, Samplebot is like a mini DAW. You can also set the pan and volume level of each pad so you can control where the different sounds are in the stereo sound stage.

Elegant UI For Sampling And Beatmaking

Samplebot records samples one sample at a time, just like the rest of the samplers. Except once the samples are loaded it makes gold records.

A lot can be said for a simple User Interface that gets the job done without being confusing. For the price I’m amazed it comes with a sequencer and sample trimmer. Many of the big DAW/iOS developers have yet to release a competing sampler that offers the basic functionality and ease-of-use of Samplebot.
