Excellent, needs some small fixes

I really love this app. Its easy to use, it responds and records quickly, and it is not complicated. My only concerns are the quantization occasionally moves the note where I don't want them (perhaps I need to be more accurate), but the biggest issue is it is incredibly difficult to maneuver the editor. The selector works alright, but zooming in and out is nearly impossible, and I end up moving notes when I don't want to. Also, the undo button is not obvious, and I never know if I accidentally moved something whether I will undo a mistake or a purposeful change. Its infuriating. If you can get by that, it is a fantastic app.

For those of you wondering, you can import voice memo recordings by going into the apple recording app and hitting the share button.

Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the zooming.

MUCH Potential... but not there yet.

I want to be clear, this is a great little app. I’m a fan of creative limitations (big fan of Koala and Samplr, both good examples of apps using minimalism, to create limitations in order to force the artist to be more creative, to literally think outside of the box. And that is why I purchased this app. As good as this app is I cannot deny that I am a little disappointed. I feel like the hype was a little bigger than the delivery. I want to be clear here I respect all the hard work that goes into making these apps. I’m not some kid who just fell off the turnip truck, I’m an audio professional and an artist. That being said, there are a couple of things that could really improve this. I would encourage the Dev to take a look at koala, there are some features there that would take this app to the next level. The ability to re-sample within the application being one of them, frankly being one of the main ones. It opens up an entire world of Soundesign. Also being able to control whether the sample is triggered as a gauge or one shot would be very helpful. And last but not least, just to teach touch deeper workflow and the audio editor in the clipboard would be fantastic. This app has the potential to be a game changer, will just have to see.

Thanks for the thoughtful review, J! I'm planning on doing some more work on Samplebot soon (just got a few other bits to do with my other apps), and I'll certainly take your thoughts on board. Some of these are already in the pipeline. Cheers -- Michael.

Sampler with Grid Editor

The ability to record sounds on the fly to pads, to edit the sounds (you can zoom way in), and to copy/paste them on the grid gives a lot of flexibility. The variety of drum grooves built into the app can you be used with your sounds to get a beat going.

With Audiobus 3 and IAA support you can combine Samplebot with other apps or record output from other apps into the Samplebot pads.

The ability to zoom in on the grid and shorten the length of the regions on grid adds another layer of options to explore. The ability to loop a section of the timeline and record into the grid makes adding to your project a breeze. Naming the pads allows you to easily keep track of the sounds you're working with. The ability to time stretch is also a nice feature of the app.

In many ways, Samplebot is like a mini DAW. You can also set the pan and volume level of each pad so you can control where the different sounds are in the stereo sound stage.
