Real time bitcrush, sampler and looper.

Nils is a real time sound effect machine with a minimalistic looper. It comes with bitcrush, delay and gain for distortion. As input you can use the internal microphone, your earpods or accessories like iRig. Can also be used as a sampler, by holding the delay buffer and changing its phase. Lo-fi looping for both beginners and professionals.

Another win

I've been using shapesynth, sinusoid and kinetic for some time now. Nils does not disappoint. Nils makes great distortion, pitch shifts and echoes. ACP works and overall Nils is as described. Needs a few tweaks but overall it's great. Loop length seems to come out strangely and the play, stop, record and reset loop point buttons end up getting hit constantly while moving along the playback speed bar. It's by no means a problem though. The interface is built for experimentalism. Lowfi and glitch producers should get nils, it rocks.

Good, but...

Where is the AUV3 option? This is an amazing app. Please upgrade it!

Elegantly destructive

This app is a beautifully minimalistic example of the potential of touchscreen devices in musical creation. There are limitless possibilities with this app, without an overwhelming sense of clutter that many programs on all platforms inspire in many users. Well done sir.
