Sampletoy by Marek Bereza

Marek Bereza, developer of Koala Sampler, released Sampletoy back in 2010, and today it gained Audiobus support! You can also import samples from AudioShare!

Sampletoy iTunes Description:

Sampletoy is a radical new musical instrument/plaything; part sampler, part granular synthesiser. Use it to capture sounds through the microphone, then play, loop, pitch and distort them live on the screen.

There are plenty of features under the hood, such as resonant filters, delays and envelope. You can enable "stepped" mode to play your sounds like a traditional keyboard, or keep it in "free" mode for some microtonal madness.

Once you've recorded a sound, use the main area of the screen to play it back at different pitches (up to 5 fingers at a time). You can crop the sound by dragging a selection over the waveform. The crop area is also multitouch and you can adjust the crop while playing the sound too.

The y-axis is pitch of the sound, and the x-axis is configurable to control filters or envelope.

You can record your performances on Sampletoy and send them via email within the app as a CD-quality wav file (mono or stereo)

FEATURES

* Create your own instruments out of any sound.

Didn't buy this when it first came out as it didn't work with AudioBus back then. Now it does.

And you can import directly from AudioShare, glitch up the sample and export it back to AudioShare or other apps.

Lots of fun.
