Great, could be the greatest

I love this app.
A couple of suggestions for the devs:

- when recording onto a new slot, it would be better if the interaction was a toggle rather than hold. One tap onto the slot to record, second tap (anywhere on the screen) to stop recording. This way users have both hands free while recording.

- when trimming the samples, it would be great to have pinch to zoom functionality.

- when trimming the samples, it would be great to have fade in and fade out options

- since we can already resample from the app, it would be awesome to be able to add the mic fx onto already recorded samples in order to resample them with the fx

- it would be amazing to have a simple sequencer with grid resolution

Keep up the great work, this is one of my favourite music apps

Great, just missing a couple of things

Great little app. The only things I would like added would be an option to add fx after recording is done, and a way to eq the samples once recorded.

If they were added, it would be 5 stars!

Very fun, very powerful

I love this. Has such a speedy workflow to it, and I’ve only begun to discover what it can do. The developer has made a great job of this. Similar to, but different from and perhaps MORE amazing then Samplr. Thanks Marek. Inspiring work.
