Publisher's Description

Sample Lab is a full-featured sampler/sequencer made exclusively for iPad. With a professional set of features packed into a simple, multi-touch interface you can skip the learning curve and start making tracks within minutes.


  • Record your own samples, or import wav & mp3 files using iTunes.
  • Per-beat attack, queue point & loop control allowing for unique new sounds and more flexibility composing. No other software (iOS or otherwise) offers this.
  • Professional quality pitch-shifting preserves sample length and formants while giving you 2 full octaves from any sample; without chipmunking. Lock a sample to a tempo and change track tempo to time stretch/compress.
  • Pinch-zoom precision sample editor lets you select your audio and drag it right onto a track.
  • 8 stereo tracks @ 44.1kHz with per-beat volume, pan and pitch control.
  • Copy/Pasteboard support for sharing audio with other apps.
  • Mixdown to WAV & upload to SoundCloud.
  • Audio Multitasking: Sample Lab will continue to play audio after you switch apps.
  • Multi-touch trigger pads for tapping in patterns or stand alone performance.
  • 4 real-time DSP FX: distortion, bit crusher, resonant cutoff, and reverb.
  • Multi-touch sequencer lets you build a composition with ease.
  • Virtual MIDI support lets you control other audio apps from Sample Lab.
  • Shuffle control for simple syncopation.
  • More than 100 samples included to get you started.
  • Punch-in loopbox style recording on each track allowing for recording layers of loops live.
  • MIDI Clock-sync output and Virtual MIDI output with per-track channel control. Send notes and clock signals to other supporting apps while multitasking.
  • MIDI input support: trigger samples and record beats with a MIDI controller to get variable velocity and lower latency. 
  • Use MIDI to punch-in/out for pedalboard hands-free looping. 
  • Plug & play support for Akai LPD8 and Behringer FCB1010.


Sample Lab was made to fit into your live set. You can:

  • Trigger samples or tap un-mute for percussive slam fading
  • Slice up a beat
  • Load a different composition or sample kit
  • Control 8 FX parameters at once with X/Y axis controls
  • Record and drop-in layers of beatbox or harmonizing vocals

...all without stopping the music.
