Very impressive and inspiring. Really could use some form of pitch detection for one shot samples though. I also wish the metronome was louder. Look forward to future updates and more effects! Maybe a DJ style EQ or other per-pad FX? Love this software. If you're on the fence about buying this, just go for it. I installed it, played around with some samples, and then when I looked at the time 5 hours had gone by! So much fun. They could charge $30 for this app & it'd still be competitive.

This has quickly become my favorite app. One of my favorite ways to fish for samples is to turn on the native screen recorder and find videos on youtube that have clips I want, then use the import video function and crop out the sound you want. Presto! One feature that I think would be extremely helpful would be the ability to label individual samples on the pads, ie a short description over the waveform on the pads. Thank you so much for this app!

The interface is so much fun and there are lots of things you can do with imported and recorded samples. The stem extraction feature is a cool idea too. Would like the step sequencer to have a few effects for the different instruments, and letting repitched samples change pitch when played in the grid or keyboard sequencer would be nice. Still, I love how many features this app has and it even lets you customize its appearance and give it cool effects. Awesome DAW!
