"surprisingly powerful" - Wall Street Journal
used by DJ/producer Zedd! // supports Audiobus, MIDI, iOS9

Sir Sampleton is a sampling musical keyboard inspired by Casio and Yamaha samplers from the 80s. The app allows you to record sounds through the microphone and then play them on dual piano keyboards accompanied by a rhythm machine. You'll be surprised at the lush, complex musical sounds that can be created with samples of your voice, musical instruments, and other noises. Samples can be looped, customized, saved, and emailed, and we offer free samples for download on our website.

Supports Audiobus, Inter-app Audio, CoreMIDI, MIDI Mobilizer 1 and 2. Works as a virtual instrument for apps like Cubasis, Beatmaker 2, and Genome sequencer. Capable of sampling other apps and effects through Audiobus.

Sampleton applies a subtle stereo effects process to the audio giving it a fuller, warmer sound that you'd typically get from sampling a monaural microphone.

Customer Reviews

No compatibility with GarageBand?

This Would be a useful, powerful and simple sampler if it was compatible with garage band. Unfortunately there is no option to switch back and forth between the to apps like other sampling apps rendering recoding impossible and making this nothing more than a waste of a dollar. If you fix it it'll earn 5 stars.

Love this app

Maybe it's my affinity for the Casio SK-1 that makes me appreciate this little keyboard sampling app so much. The Audiobus update has renewed my interest in using it.
