SampleWiz App Description

SampleWiz was awarded Music Making App of the Year for 2011 by the Music Industries Association! Capture your sonic universe! Listen… Record… Create… 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. "Inspiring! Just when you thought nothing could be new in the world of sampling, along comes SampleWiz to fire up the neurons of our creativity in new ways. I love the the new realtime interactive noises I can get by 'touching the sound'...the crazy and unique stuff you can do with it is really expressive and fresh!" - Eric Persing, Founder of Spectrasonics "SampleWiz gets you playing instantly, and if you like to sample, there's no quicker or more fun way to go from recording to playing your own samples. Amazing controls, easy to understand yet deep enough to let you create musical voices! And it comes with a library of great sounds from Jordan Rudess. SampleWiz is a wiz if ever there was!" - David Mash, VP of Technology and Education, Berklee College of Music  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! *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 use 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.

    After many years still a most capable and enjoyable app. Wish we saw more updates or v2. Would be nice to have 2 Osc and an envelope filter would really beef up this app. Please please update or release a newer build would pay again for it
  • Could be better

    For Aliasing and please stop putting your face or look alikes all over your apps. It is rather tacky and egocentric. This lacks so many things a real sample app needs. Its ok for putting in words and playing wacky sounds.
  • Very cool sampler

    Just works perfect on my iPhone 6! The sounds, the quality... I'm a big fan of Jordan Rudess, the best keyboard master around the planet! 👌🏼

    While this is probably the most "normal" interface of all your apps, it still puts an intuitive twist on things. There are modes and functions that are much more than meets the eye. The fact that it interfaces with geo synth makes it a must-have. Very inspiring work as an electrical engineer and keyboard player. Thank you! -Brendan Hasson
  • Just bad

    Sounds awful. One sample at a time. Completely outdated and a ridiculous waste of money. I want a refund!
  • Intuitive, fun sampler.

    Does exactly as it should and has a couple inventive features that really add style to the sampler without over complexifying the interface. A fun and well thought out app that is easy to use and is quite original.
  • Jordan is one of us

    After my first try I kind of did not like the interface. But a friend urged me to check out some of Jordan's demos ...and I must say that kind of gave me the impression that he Really wanted people to like and understand his interfaces.As it turns out sample wiz is much cooler than it seemed at first. Now I'm a fan of it.peace Christo

    Very cool features, three different stretch modes, neat resampling and sample point selection.. Wish I could sample more than 10 seconds, but everyone has their wishes ;)
  • Great Sample Manipulator

    Still the best, and most useful, sampler keyboard for iOS.
