At the heart of WerkBench are two step sequencers that let you instantly sample sounds into rhythms.
The concept is simple and powerful. You will be making awesome musical patterns in seconds!

--"Fancy Controls" (pitch, lowpass filters, envelopes, and more!)
--Edit pitch, pan, cutoff, envelope decay, echo, and level independently for each step!
--Chain sequences to build longer loops (1 - 128 steps!).
--Funky tape echo for spacey effects with a sweet real-time visualizer.
--The two sequencers can be chained to make a 32 step sequencer!
--Save and load loops or whole sets of 8 patterns.
--Export loops and recordings via Audio Copy, iTunes file sharing, and email.
--MIDI sync and MIDI note modes.
We hope you love it!
What's New in Version 2.0.0
This is our 2.0 baby!
We've completely overhauled the audio engine and added tons of cool features.
Check out the file importer, Audiobus support, new sequencer and graphics!
At this moment, the best Audiobus Compatible app
First off I am just amazed what I got done on this app with Audiobus support from the time I downloaded it. I have the iPhone version which is pretty cool and gives you a taste of what it's big brother can do. But now with Audiobis support I can take any other AB compatible app and instantly create my own sounds and craft them on the fly the way I want. Not to mention the numerous ways of routing Werkbench to and from another app via Audiobus.
Just freaking amazing!
I have to say that I am actually laying more beats down on this then on the iMPC. Keep up the good work and this app is a must have!
For those who have the iPhone version, the developer has mentioned he will work on Audiobus support for that as well.
Awesome But Still Has Room for Improvement
This app is really good and really fun to use. The Audiobus support is perfect and opens up the doors.
The app is basically a five star app as is, but I'm currently rating it a 4/5 because great apps like this can transcend and evolve into something really special (see below for my ideas).
Additions to the app I would like to see are the ability to reverse samples and the ability to adjust their start and end points. Also the ability to change time signatures (the swing slider just isn't enough for me). Oh, and a bit crush effect would be nice as well.
All in all small gripes on an otherwise fantastic app. One of my favorites on the iPad and I have a lot!
Works great with an iPad 2 and Audiobus.
The definitive iOS beatbox/sampling app, ow featuring Audiobus support!
Werkbench has been one of the most unique and easy to use beat generation apps in recent times, but the mic only sampling was the thing holding the app back. Now with version 2.0 you can sample using Audiobus directly as well as AudioCopy. This opens up infinite possibilities! In addition you can also run Werkbench's output to your favorite iDAW or looper while routing through an effects app using Audiobus. All in all this is now one of my favorite music making apps on iOS.
