Samplism is a revolutionary audio file organizer that helps you quickly ​organize, search and preview your audio samples.

[Key Features]
1. Automatic Tag Matching
Samplism features a breakthrough technology that automatically categorizes audio samples into tags. With Samplism, you don't need to waste your time anymore on manually categorizing your audio files. Just drag and drop folders into Samplism. All audio samples are automatically categorized into tags. It's a magic.

2. Navigate Audio Samples with Tags and Auto Tags
Samplism provides a simple, quick and easy way to search for samples using tags and auto tags. By simply selecting a tag, all its corresponding samples will be shown in the Sample List. In addition, auto tags allow you to search for samples with more specific criteria.

3. Manual Tag Matching
The automatic tag matching feature in Samplism allows you to conveniently and easily classify audio samples into tags. But sometimes the matching results may not be accurate. With the manual tag matching feature, you can classify samples more accurately.

4. User-Defined Tags
In addition to a rich set of built-in tags, Samplism allows you to create your own tags and group tags. With the user-defined tagging feature, you can categorize and search audio samples much more precisely.

5. Organize Audio Samples with Folders
Samplism provides folders and folder groups to help you manually organize your audio samples. Simply select audio samples in a library and drag and drop them into a folder. It is simple, quick and easy.

6. Advanced Sample Player
Samplism provides a simple, easy-to-use yet powerful sample player, which allows you to play an entire audio file, the waveform selection, or transient regions.

7. Simplism: the Samplism mini player
Simplism is designed to use with DAWs or other audio apps together on a single monitor screen. It takes up very little space on your screen and still provides most key features of Samplism to navigate, search and preview your audio samples.

8. Export Audio Samples
With Samplism, exporting as audio files has never been easier. Simply select audio samples, the waveform selection, or transient regions. Samplism provides various export options such as file type, sample rate and bit depth. With just a click, all selected samples are automatically converted as audio files, which can be used in other DAWs.

9. Import Third-Party Library (* Logic Pro X and Ableton Live supported)
Do you want to import third-party libraries installed on your Mac, such as Logic Pro factory library, Apple Loops from Logic Pro and Garageband, and the factory content of other commercial DAWs? With Samplism, you don't need to worry about finding the directory location of all third-party libraries. Samplism can automatically detect factory library samples of commercial DAWs and allows you to import them with just one-click.

10. Working with DAWs
Simply drag and drop audio samples, the waveform selection or transient regions into DAWs. It just works. A powerful drag and drop feature in Samplism will greatly improve workflow and increase creativity. With Samplism, sampling has never been easier.

11. Working with Audio Units
Samplism is compatible with Audio Units. By simply selecting the Audio Unit View, Samplism scans all audio unit effects installed on your Mac and shows them in the Audio Unit List. All you have to do is to preview audio samples with real-time audio unit effects, tweak the plugin parameters and enjoy the sound.

12. Built for Mac
Samplism takes full advantage of the latest macOS technologies including Core Audio, Core Animation and Grand Central Dispatch, and is fully optimized for 64-bit and multicore processors.

LOVE IT! Please add Ableton Link tho. :)


Tried the demo from your website & 5 minutes later purchased here. Been using AudioFinder for a couple years and this is leaps and bounds EASIER to use. That's what we want - easy. AudioFinder might do some more stuff, but this app is dead simple and super fast. Not sure how its built but they've managed to make this thing INCREDIBLY fast. I added my entire 1 TB sample library on my external library and in about 3-4 minutes it had everything tagged and ready to go. Like it says in the description - it's not 100% bang on. Some manual user tagging and fixing will be necessary, but that that is to be expected when we all have out own naming schemes and what not.

Do yourself a favor and buy this app now. When they add Ableton Link support this will be GAME CHANGING.

Thanks a MILLION devs. Here's my money $$ 🙃

Hi, _AGNDA_. Thanks for your lovely comment!
As you pointed out, an automatic tagging feature in Samplism is not perfect and needs improvements. But our team has been really hard working every day to make Samplism better, including the quality of the automatic tagging engine.
We will consider adding support for Ableton Link in the future updates. Please look forward to the future updates.
Thank you again!!!

Very Beautiful App and Great Developer


My story: I do music production with Logic Pro. I have wanted a sample manager for several years. Never looked too hard, just knew I needed one. So last week I saw a free one available from ADSRsounds. I tried it, it was terrible and unusable. Then I searched for a better one, and found Samplism.

Samplism is fantastic. Loading libraries is fast and intuitive. Tagging is superb.
The way the developer is adding features is great and the developer is very responsive when communicating.

Regarding reliability: Even though the app crashed twice the first day I had it, and even though it crashed once after that, it has not crashed since then. (Crossing fingers - maybe it feels more at home in my system now? or possibly the recent update helped). But I don’t feel terribly alarmed about this: the developer stated they are working on crashes, and asked me to send crash reports, which I did.

I have about 40K samples loaded currently.

This is one of the finest apps ever. Sometimes you can just tell that some has designed a beautiful thing and really really really wants it to be best in class.

Hi, WadeCottingham. Thank you for lovely comments.
Our team is hard working every day to make Samplism the best sample management app.
The future updates will include great new features and enhancements. Please look forward to it!
Thank you again!!!

Amazing. Wow.


This is simply incredible. A total changer for any producers workflow. I would buy this at double the price. One question - although your auto-tagging is ridicoulsly good (and really fast) I have still put a great deal of time into assigning user-tag to my library. So m uch time that I’d be crushed if someone my library got corrupted or something went wrong. Is there any easy way to somehow backup everything? Or a certain meta data file I should be making a copy of? Keep up the awesome work! A+

Hi, Room_Service. Thanks for your kind compliment. We really appreciate it!
As you know, the automatic tagging feature in Samplism is not perfect. But, our team is continuously trying to improve both the quality and the performance of the automatic tagging feature.
We are also agree with your idea that a sort of backup feature is necessary. We will consider adding the backup feature.
If you have further questions or any suggestion, please don't hesitate to contact us anytime. Thank you again!
