"It may come closest to transforming your iPad into a touchable sonic slate." - Peter Kirn, Create Digital Music
"I absolutely love this - This is a wonderful app for playing and manipulating samples. It's a great user interface. It is fun, powerful, unique and the developer is committed to delivering all the elements that put it on top! Bravo and a job well done." - Jordan Rudess

This is no exaggeration...
I have used 99.9 % of all software synth, samplers, virtual instruments from everyone from ILIO,to East West,NI, BIgfish, ZEro-G and so on and so forth... This is undoibtfuly the most usable and functioning software for creating music that I have ever seen written for PC, Mac or iOS... It's no exaggeration to say that this takes music into a completely different level that has ever been able to beachieved until now with touch screens... It's almost like they created a new instrument because anything you put into it, has the potential to come out sounding like whatever your imagination makes it.
No I am not a paid spokesperson for these people LOL
Only missing one thing
This app is fantastic, but is missing a very key sampling function; TRIM!!!! please add a sample Trim feature for both imported and recorded samples, and I will literally not be able to ask for a better sampling/performance app. Thanks guys!!!
Very good app
This is a great app. There is a bit of a learning curve but once you get it you can easily do some mind bending sound design. Highly recommend
