Salome - MPE Audio Sampler 4+

Record, Import, Play

Bram Bos

    • $7.99


Salome is a tool for recording (or importing) sounds, turning them into seamless loops, and then polyphonically play them using MPE or MIDI.

CONTROL: The onscreen keypads can be latched, turning them into 2-dimensional faders for controlling various modulations. Additionally, software and hardware MPE controllers can be used (or normal MIDI, in a pinch).

WORKFLOW: The entire process from sampling to playing was designed to be a fast and fluid as possible. Speed > features.

UNIVERSAL: AUv3 plugins for iOS (iPhone, iPad) and MacOS (ARM, Intel) are included*.

- Full Audio Unit compatibility (note that not all hosts support all AU features)
- Built-in MPE keypads for multidimensional onscreen control
- MPE/MIDI input and output from the Audio Unit, so you can record your performance or even control other MPE synths
- 12 mode filter, based on the Oberheim Xpander design
- Latch-mode lets you play the instrument using faders
- Basic standalone mode included (for connectivity use the AU plugin)
- Record or import sounds (WAV, AIF, MP3) and instantly play them as a polyphonic instrument
- Effortless seamless loops using the non-destructive X-Fade feature

* not all MacOS DAWs fully support Audio Unit plugins. This is not a VST plugin.

Thanks Bram 🥺🙏🏼

I’ve been wanting this for ages ! Even built my own inside of Drambo but honestly I’m sure this will be 100 x more efficient on my CPU so it was an instant buy for me (knowing the quality of your craft there is no doubt it’ll be amazing).

Thanks bud,

Hopefully you can consider a Mozaic 2 sometime - with some much needed love such as custom layouts (or more layout options and colors especially) - a buildable interface paired up with the amazing mozaic scripting language would make for an amazing Swiss knife tool - I use mozaic everywhere.

Thanks for all the wonderful apps friend.

I love me some BramBos!

Bram, love the sampler Salome. One issue I noticed is that when you latch a note, then shift octaves, you cannot latch the same note an octave lower or higher. This seems like a bug or an oversight. Otherwise, very cool for a “utility ”.


Another winner

Love it so far! would have also liked if you could sample in stand alone. Did I miss something? Hats off for always dropping some heat!
