* the biggest Sampler update since 2008;
* Sampler: click removal algorithm (between two notes on the same channel, or during the sharp note cutoff);
* Sampler: added four new envelopes to control the effect (with polyphony support), which is one of the built-in SunVox modules; so you can choose almost any SunVox module (for example, Filter or MetaModule), and it will be stored inside the Sampler;
* Sampler: new option "Ignore velocity for volume";
* Sampler (sample editor): new loop parameter - Sustain; when enabled, loop will be finished after the Note OFF;
* Sampler (sample editor): deeper zoom;
* Sampler (sample editor): Crossfade Loop effect has been added into the menu;
* Sampler (envelope editor): unlimited envelope length, unlimited number of envelope points;
* Sampler (envelope editor): point info display has been added; press it to show/hide the additional buttons for precise point control;
* Sampler (envelope editor): new envelope parameters: Gain, Velocity influence;
* Sampler (envelope editor): new envelopes: Pitch, Effect Controller;
* MetaModule: new option "Event output"; when enabled, the MetaModule can output events (Note ON/OFF, Set Pitch, etc.) from the internal Output module; see the examples metamodule_arpeggiator3/4;
* MetaModule: effect 07 (set sample offset by percentage) is now supported too; you can use it to jump to the specified location within the MetaModule-project;
* MetaModule: new mode "play without repeat" has been added to the "Play patterns" controller;
* Filter, Filter Pro, Flanger, LFO, Vibrato: current LFO phase is visible now (on the "Set phase" controller);
* Filter, Filter Pro, Flanger, LFO, Vibrato: the incoming notes (Note ON commands) reset the LFO phase to "Set phase" value;
* MultiSynth: new option "Trigger" (ignore Note OFF commands; the new note turns off the old note with the same pitch);
* MultiSynth: new controller "Curve2 influence" (mix between the linear (default) and the user-drawn curve2);
* Reverb: new controller "Random seed";
* LFO: new controller "Generator" (always generate a signal, even if the input is empty);
* LFO: triangle waveform;
* Pattern Editor: new function "Place evenly" (place events evenly in the selected area);
* new project parameter - "Time grid2" (the higher-level grid, number of time grid cells);
* "Randomize controllers" can now be canceled through the UNDO;
* lists of the recent files and folders have been added to the file browser; you can disable it in the Preferences -> Interface;

Rewarding after tough learning curve


The title is the best summary I can think of. If you are used to tracker based DAW's this is a great platform. It is pretty daunting at first but as somebody who uses Renoise on PC as my main software, this is a great mobile alternative... once you figure out how to use it. Would greatly benefit from a tutorial, which would have it reach 5 stars in my view.

Different, deep but highly capable and cool.


It's very different setup to most Daws/sequencers, but it's actually very cool and sounds amazing. Good to see something different that actually works so well.

A stunning sequencer


Sunvox is a step sequencer with modular synthesis. The block tracking is very very good and allows users to 'do it their way'. The modular synthesis routing it allows on a mobile device is un-paralleled and an astonishing amount of effects and sounds can be built. Samples may be loaded. It has a theremin mode. The UI is extraordinary and once you get your head around it, the workflow is direct and intuitive.
Great for jotting down a rhythm or a tune quickly, building an entire song or making experimental noises.
I have re-birth, figure, FL studio mobile, MIDI synth, iShred and many other music apps n tool. Because of its genius sequencer, Sunvox is the one I use to record melodies and tunes when I'm away from the PC. Well worth the price 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
