A decent option


There are no other options for a multi Timbral sampler for iPad. I don't like being steered towards syntronik because that's where you've put your investment. My investment is in creativity and paying the hot $ticket to get the great sounds. Your stuff isn't cheap. I realize syntronik is so open ended it's future is probably more lucrative. But while you're worried about profit. We are worried about creating. Sampletank needs tweaking. At the very least for this price I want a stable product. It isn't. You know this. Fix it. Then hit me with the new stuff. But why am I going to trust a new product when your staple mainstay , sampletank, gets put on hold when it shouldn't be? Why am I going to give you more money when you are leaving me hanging with my last investment with you? iPad is not an easy thing do it right with. Apple is shameless. Very very disappointed in their data / cable scam. It's ridiculous. The way they don't really care about their own audio implantation to make it easier ... but still sell the iPad as this great musicians tool is extremely hypocritical... don't end up in bed with that ideology. She will take cab fare from your hungover wallet and leave you chained to the bed. While she eats breakfast in front of you, before she leaves in your car.... don't be that guy.

AUv3 Update Needed Desperately!


The quality of the sound has increased amazingly after this update. Now 8 sound multitimbral, which means you can drive up to eight layered midi tracks all at once giving you sonic power of unheard of quality right on your iPad or even the iPhone.

I am using this sound module with MidiBand 3.1 and I'm creating incredible backing tracks in minutes not hours. All because of the amazing sonic power IK multimedia has provided to us.

For those on the fence, fear no more, this is it! I missed out on the sale by two hours, although it was still 10pm where I am at, It still didn't go through, but I will not miss out next time. For now the stock sounds are doing just fine. I really love the drums and electric and acoustic guitar sounds now, they just have so much more realism than ever before. With Midiband 3.1, i'm able to drive up to 16 midi tracks all at once, but with 8 that is all i really need for now. Bass, drums, pads, acoustics, electric guitars, all in there and more.

I can't wait to see what else is in store for this amazing app, but for now, get it! Heck you can even try it for free!

5 stars worth IMHO!!

Please update to AUv3 and will put this over the top!

I highly recommend this app!


Great app but hate add pop up


I am pleased with the samples in this app there very good. But they keep having an ad for their new product popping up and it is hard to get rid of you press the X and it goes to the website for their new app. After about 3 or 4 times of pressing on the X it finally stops going to their website. I paid to much for this app to have an add pop up. I will never buy anymore of there products if there going to continue to bombard me with new product ads.
