iPad Sampler For Sound Design

SampleWiz ipad sampler

SampleWiz is an iPad sampler for all. Created by Jordan Rudess. Jordan says: In creating this instrument I wanted to create something that would appeal to the sonic explorer in all of us. Creating a sampler for iOS devices has allowed us to push the boundaries of traditional sampling instruments. From playing a selection of my signature sounds on the SampleWiz keyboard (JR lead anyone?) to getting up close and personal with sounds by playing directly on the waveform screen, our mission was to blow your mind, put a smile on your face, and expand your creativity. In creating SampleWiz, we have created partnerships with leading sound developers in addition to my personally selected onboard presets.

What’s New in Version 1.5.0
– update to AudioBus 2 for compatibility with iOS 8
– SampleWiz-to-Geo copy function works properly again (also requires an update of Geo)

You must have this app if you’re looking for an iPad sampler app that is more of a sound design tool.

Capture your sonic universe!
Listen… Record… Create…

We have poured our hearts and minds into this and driven our families, bandmates, and friends insane by sampling everything that moves. I hope you enjoy this very expressive and wild music app creation!

iPad Sampler SampleWiz

*Choose from three different sampling modes: classic, granular, and modern.
*Classic – the traditional method of sampling where the sound will speed up and slow down as you go higher or lower than the recorded pitch.
*Granular – Wizdom Music’s own take on a granular synthesis engine. Adjust grain size and speed while the entire range of notes maintain the same speed.
*Modern – explore new sampling possibilities using Dirac technology to allow formants and time to be adjusted automatically over a device-selected range.
*Up to 10 seconds per sample.
*Jordan Rudess presets from his private collection.
*Resample anything that you play on the playing surface to create all new samples derived from your existing presets!
*Three playing surface modes allow you to play on the keyboard, wave-edit screen, and the ADSR window.
*Wizdom Music’s Advanced Pitch Rounding for initial attack as well as after a slide.
*Every note you play is an independent event allowing powerful, expressive control of pitch and amplitude.
*Finger vibrato effect allows you to achieve vibrato even when pitch lock is activated!
*Unique visuals for each sampling mode. A glow tracks your fingers and respond to the amount of amplitude of every note you play.
*Choose from many different scales and customize your own.
*Play your samples forward or reverse!
*Looping options include standard looping as well as back-and-forth looping.
*Allows trimming of samples.
*Unique visualization of the amplitude envelope on the ADSR page.
*FX include delay with a choice of tap-tempo, BPM, and seconds control over the rate.
*Have two keyboards on the screen, each with its own range and scale!
*Unique hold mode where every held note can be in a different synthesis mode!
*Share your presets with friends by mailing them as SampleWiz files or standard audio files.
*Play directly on the waveform and hear the audio that is right under your finger. Slide each finger separately in any direction to change pitch and position in the sample.
*MAPI AudioCopy/AudioPaste allows sharing of audio with top audio apps.
*Load your own audio files with iTunes file sharing.
*Onboard help screens explain every parameter. Touch the question mark to activate.

SampleWiz is available for $9.99

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
