Samplr is a uniquely designed and powerful audio manipulation app no iDevice should be without.
A super cool and fun way to control waveforms by touch, in a diverse collection of playing modes.
Samplr does a superb job with the gesture and touch controls leaving no impressions of it being anything short of brilliant.

This is just such a fun and powerful app. To start off, there’s nice presets to choose from that are a great way to begin with familiarizing oneself with the intuitive controls. Of course no sampler would be worth anything if you couldn’t easily bring in and record your own sounds.
Samplr is fully ready for you to explore and get creative while also being very enjoyable. AudioCopy/Paste and Audiobus – Input & Output compatibility opens the best doors to stroll on in hassle free.

Designed for use in live performances, Sampler offers 6 slots for you to place samples in. Play all six simultaneously while manipulating one in real time. Each slot can be independently paused and started again with a quick tap of the slot it’s in which is visible on bottom of the screen at all times. There’s no getting lost here. With 7 different play modes, each assignable in any order to the samples, there an awful lot of possibilities.

That’s a pretty nice variety of tools to twist up samples.

Amplitude-Modulation, Reverb, and Distortion effects are at your fingertips.
A sweet gesture recorder allows custom movements to continue while moving on to another sample bank.

Samplr has quickly become my favorite for all my sampling uses. It has everything I need to do everything I want to do. It’s reliable, stable, and sounds great. To me its not just a sampler but a creative and strong instrument. Samplr will suit many uses and music styles very well. I’ve not experienced any crashes or strange malfunctions at all (so far) using it with my iPads 3 & 4. It was in fact a great inspiration for my Colors Of Choices song which I made based off of this magnificent app.

I have no reservations with recommending Samplr as a must have. Unless you really need something of a more common design, it will very likely become a new favorite.
