Indispensable Lateral Music Making Marval

I've been using Samplr to play live over five years. Samplr is an intuitive kinesthetic touch based instrument with zero menu diving.

In a world of reasonably high quality analogue budget synths and expensive hardware samplers it’s important to give occasional pause and recognize the beauty of working with machines or software that posses limitations.

These so called ‘limitations’ mean less options. Having less options means less paralysis by analysis, and fear of missing out from not having ‘mastered’ all functions instantaneously.

By using machines with less options you exhaust the possibilities of what is theoretically possible. Once thats been accomplished you can start approaching it from a lateral or novel perspective.

Samplr allows you to exhaust all of its functions rather quickly; you can learn them in day or two. In six years I still find new ways to use the the tools provided. I imagine in six more I still will.

It's my favorite instrument I have ever played and is an indispensable part of my set up. I use it to jam, to play everything I make live, dawlessly and to compose.

I recommend it to everyone regardless of the genre of music you play. Hip hop, ambient, dub experimental, noise, music concrete. It does it all.

The one music app to rule them all!

Amazing!!! Get it Support it.

Wow we finally have channel panning!🎶😊😁🤩📈⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟
Bring on those in-app upgrades so we can support this genius and unique app.⚡️⚡️⚡️❤️👍

Since its release, nothing has come close to what this app has to offer. Sure, there are other granular apps out there but non have come close to the flexibility and durability of Samplr. It’s not just a granular app it’s also a great sequencer daw which goes beyond the conventional with great potential to go even further with community support. (Let’s make it happen ). If you never experience this, now here your chance. If you already have it, show support by giving ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️and comment favorably to also encourage in-app purchases to allow this app to flurish.

Glad I bought this at the original price (although once you have used it you know it is well worth the new one- heck, I’ve heard of people who bought an iPad ONLY to use Samplr), but to the dev: I would love to contribute again as a thank you for keeping one of the most amazing iOS instruments ever alive. My favorite podcast app, Downcast, has a sliding scale “tip the dev” IAP option that I have used several times. I think you would have a lot of people thrilled to be able to contribute again 💗
