Samplebot 1.1 – Ableton Link, More Sampling Options, Pitch Manipulation and more

Samplebot is a playful new sampler, clip launcher and sequencer app for iPhone and iPad from A Tasty Pixel, developer of award-winning apps Loopy and Audiobus.

We covered the release of Samplebot last September, and now a major update has been released which adds a whole new set of importing, sampling and sound manipulation abilities.

Select a song from the iTunes Music library or from Dropbox, iCloud Drive or other cloud storage services.

Then use the trim handles to pull out a sample – automatically adjusted to fit the project’s tempo – and tweak the pitch up or down a couple of semitones to fit.

Drop it onto one of Samplebot’s colorful pads, and return to grab more samples.

Then pick a beat and remix your little heart out. Step two, profit and stardom.

With the release of Samplebot version 1.1, musicians and tinkerers alike get new sound-wrangling powers. A wide range of importing and sampling options joins powerful tempo matching and pitch manipulation features, making it even easier to get creative.

The addition of the Ableton Link synchronization technology makes collaboration and multi-app workflows delightfully fun and easy.

New features:

  • Support for iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive and other cloud services supported by the iOS 11 Files document picker, as well as importing from iTunes music library and Audio Copy
  • Automatic time stretching to fit project tempo; pitch and playback rate adjustments
  • Synchronisation with other devices and apps via Ableton Link

Immediately following its launch late last year, Samplebot was featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, in segments with Fred Armisen and Chris Hemsworth.
