Developer Erik Sigth has released Elsa – a retro-style sampling app for iOS (Universal) with tempo based looping.
Elsa lets you record, save, load & reverse samples. You can play it with a multi octave on-screen keyboard or plug in a core MIDI device of choice, soft- or hardware.
Elsa comes with three built in effects, a reverb, a resonant low pass filter and a frequency/bit crush. Samples are looped in three different modes, one off, forward and/or forward-reverse. The start and end of playback also comes in three modes, one set of start and stop for all, one set per note and/or one set per octave, allowing for many different types of samples. Additionally at playback time, sample length can also be controlled by a set of sample dividers, 1-8.
