Andrey Savitsky released Sound Weaver back in February. This sample chopping instrument has now been updated with Inter-App Audio and Audiobus support.
Sound Weaver is an instrument which allows you to chop audio recordings into 8 different slices. Each slice can be played as one shot or looped sound by assigned colored pad, or chromatically with the on screen keyboard.
Every slice has it own independent FX chain:
and can be sent to global Reverb effect.
Make recordings via Microphone or import any audio file from your device or export slices to wav files. Sound Weaver can also generate random audio combinations based on your saved recordings.
Slices can be played with a sequencer which has 16 slots to store patterns and slices settings. Sound Weaver has an opportunity to generate slices and sequencer patterns randomly. The application has 10 free demo projects with prerecorded sounds.
Connect your MIDI device to control everything in the app.

Here I go through some of the main features of Saturn 2 and talk about how bloody great this thing is. The modulation possibilities are quite astounding.
This is not a detailed tutorial, but useful nevertheless. First, I run a simple sine wave through some of the fx presets to see how radical a sound design tool this can be, and explain the main features.
Then we look at how it can be used more subtly, to add warmth and colour. Finally we hear what the amp algorithms can do to electric guitar sounds. If you enjoy this tutorial, please remember to give it a thumbs up, subscribe if you haven't, and comment. Cheers！
Developer Elliott Garage posted a feature walkthrough for their new sEGments. This one includes captions, instead of a voice over, which feels odd to me in a developer video. I guess I like hearing from devs.
With sEGments slicer/sampler app you can Import any loop/sample/audio file and find the best samples inside it, using the automatic transient detection or manually adding markers. You can play the slices with any MIDI external controller or with the builtin pads and keyboard layout; also each slice can be played chromatically as in a real synth with mono or polyphonic voices (up to 12). Each slice has independent parameters (all automatable in any AU host), such as reverse, level, attack, release, start point and length and individual fxs (reverb, delay, bitcrusher and filter) that can be changed on the fly thanks to its flexible audio engine.
sEGments automatically detect BPM and root key of your audio file and it can adjust its tempo and pitch according to your project settings.
It can be used both in standalone or hosted as AudioUnit AU3 inside apps like GarageBand, AUM, BeatMaker3, NanoStudio2, n-Track9 and others, and it supports AU Multi-output.
