Simply the best
This is an update to my initial misguided review. I have finally come to my senses. No more searching, no more criticising and comparing. I wouldn’t blame a guitar for not being a drum. In the same way I wouldn’t blame Samplr for not being any other app. Rationally speaking , why and what would I compare it to? This is as enjoyable as it gets on IOS for me. I appreciate I send emails and go the internet with my IPad , but this is as close as it gets to to an instrument in itself on IOS. Just play it, have fun and don’t want for more!
Developer Response ,
Hi. You can record your own samples using the iPad microphone. You can also import them using copy and paste from other apps, you can use Files, there’s a folder called “Samplr” in your “On My iPad”. You can also import from Dropbox or from an app called Audioshare.
Very nice, at a price.
Samplr has legendary status among IOS music makers, mostly because it innovated, and still does what it does better than most other apps of its kind. As it should, considering the price hike for this version. Adding Link is useful, but adding AU3 would be the best move. Whether this will ever happen, given that the developer is busy as a busy thing working for Apple, remains to be seen. And if AU3 does appear, will the price then go beyond most people’s pockets?
Good partner to other synths
Samplr is a good tool to use with clips that you’ve made with other synths, or found sounds, or downloaded samples. Samplr allows you that spontaneous freedom to play, rather than to program. You get what you pay for and this is worth every cent, neatly designed, well crafted, lots of fun.
