* 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;

Customer Reviews

AWESOME! But there is still space for improvements...


I've bought plenty of music apps for my iPhone and iPad, Korg's Electribe, BeatMaker, even much more expensive Pro, totally about twelve apps but yet at this one I found the features that turns iPhone but mainly iPad into a true music studio able to create a whole songs and sets with capacity and features for live shows. Absolutely brilliant! Finaly I can start exploring music creation on iPad, this app motivates me to that.

However, there are still some things to imporve and make it more suitable for Apple's platform. Mainly it's the use of multitouch (pinch doesn't count as the full use of the technology). Then the roll menus could be either slightly bigger or completely different to make it possible to use them easily. I haven't tried the iPhone version yet but even on the iPad the menus could be a little bigger.

I need to explore it more yet as I've just downloaded but keep on man, it's f*ckin great app ;-).

p.s.: Don't bother with those guys who criticize the graphics. It makes the app unique but most of all it makes it simple and directly focused on music creation which should be the priority ;-).

Tenhle soft buď budete milovat, nebo nenávidět. Doporucuji to první. Používám ho od verze pro Palm a stále obdivuji, co umí. Modulární a velmi konfigurovatelný synth spojený s trackerem. Ovládání a UI je poňekud nestandardní, ale pokud si zvyknete, tak velmi fukční. Doporučuji vyzkoušet na počítači, kde je zdarma a pak si ho teprve pořídit. Já nelituji.
