The new engine engine does the standard pitch, forward/backward manipulations, but it also has a wicket looper function, that is capable of producing sounds similar to a grain sampler, which cannot be produced by standard samplers.
Users can switch samples among different patterns, and there are many parameters again to allow the user to manipulate the sample/loop in an elastic way.
For the iPad version there is also new Edit View, where users can edit velocity and automation records in a more detailed and easy way.
