Hands down the best
I have used 99.9 % of all software synth, samplers, virtual instruments from everyone from ILIO,to East West,NI, BIgfish, ZEro-G and so on and so forth... This is undoubtfully the most usable and functioning software for creating music that I have ever seen written for PC, Mac or iOS... no exaggeration to say that this takes music into a completely different level that has ever been able to be achieved until now with touch screens... It's almost like they created a new instrument because anything you put into it, has the potential to come out sounding like whatever your imagination makes it.
Also I'd like to add that I use iOS for music production 12 hours or more a day and I see what's stable and what isn't.... Since the beginning I have never noticed this crash or act whiny and be a brat like some huge companies... These guys will take over soon...
No I am not a paid spokesperson for these people LOL
Most powerful sampler ever I used
It's amazing used daily in my studio. To those complaining of a trim function it's not 100% of a trim feature but it does get the job done. I would only like to see a hold and record function for the loop launcher. That way if your finished editing you don't have to press two buttons to launch the loop. Much faster for us dj types. It also makes it harder to launch or stop multiple loops at the same time without a hold button.
Being able to record a sequence would make this app all powerful! Waiting on the next update....
Teenage Engineering OP-1 or Samplr?
Samplr rivals the 900 dollar machine. This is an amazing creative tool which works flawlessly. Whether re-interpreting audio to make a song or setting up sets of samples to manipulate live, this app is intuitive and sounds flow out of it that amaze me. As an "all hardware" electronic musician, this changed my attitude. A big fan.
