  1. A worthy update to one of the very best musical devices for Ipad, but I was sad to find still no external MIDI clock sync. I really hope Marcos can add this soon because I would have loved to have used this extensivly on my next release but without the ability to sync it to midi clock its still a standalone app.

    • what theres no midi ???

      i want to use the ipad as a sampler in my machinedrum/analogfour setup !!!

      no midi in a sampler is idiotic in my opinion, thats not a random feature thats nice to have, its super important for every computer based music instrument to be able to sync it to a midi clock ^^

      very disappointing, so i have to buy sampletank^^

  3. Samplr is a great app, and I’m really impressed with the frequency with which it’s being updated. I wish the vinyl mode had a latch feature, where the sample would continue at normal speed once you lift your finger. It’s impossible to trace your finger at a constant speed, so you can’t get playback that doesn’t warble.

  4. One of the most musical apps, truly unique and very playable; it’s a pity izotope iris doesn’t have this much innovation, I would buy this as a VSTi if the dev ever ports it.

  5. Best use of audio bus thus far, I believe, especially through the output to record eight tracks from eight apps and then mess with them and Create something new lifts this app head and shoulders above the rest.

    • No first hand experience with this yet but it could a buffer issue. If you take a look at the forum on the audiobus site there should be a thread outlining ways to make sure all apps are running the correct buffer size.

  7. Here are my humble wishes for this already great app.
    Ability to mute slices / add empty slices in slice mode,
    Midi sync,
    More sample slots (with disk streaming if necessary)

  8. can someone who has used this tell how does the input recording work ? can you record a new sample to a sample slot while it is playing with a single tap/hold ?
