- My favorite music making App hands down!

Koala is so good for me because of two factors, being fun and being simple. I was hesitant and first to buy this app because over the years I have collected a large amount of computer software, instruments, and hardware samplers to make beats with. So for me I was like “why would I need this? I already have everything!” But my favorite beat maker posted a video using it so I gave it a try and wow. I loved it. koala was designed to be intuitive and easy to use but still very powerful. In a age of complicated, extremely powerful beat making computer programs and Phone apps. A lot of my time is spent just tweaking on small details to make my song “perfect” which takes away from the natural fun flow of making music. Koala gives that back to me. Is it worth the few $$$? Yes. I have music hardware that costs $1200 dollars and this app is more fun and easy to use. I love it!

- My New SP-404 (and more)

This app is incredible. It’s maybe my single favorite app ever (not just music). If you are proficient with an SP-404 you will love this app. It makes sample chopping such a pleasure. Beautiful, smooth, stable, precise - everything you could ever ask. So artfully laid out. The whole thing really is a work of art because of its beautiful simplicity and power. It embraces why people love the 404 despite its limitations and also embraces the iPad as an instrument. Thanks so much to the developer for this. The one thing it kills compared to the 404 is the sequences. Bravo on that. It’s such a fast workflow. I can’t even explain how efficient it is. You just have to get in there and use it. The effects are great on here but totally different than the 404. Good call on that too. You cannot do the 404 fx on an iPad. It wouldn’t work. This was a much smarter direction. (But if you nailed that vinyl sim, oh boy😳). The effects are really more like the pocket operator’s fx but more robust. The one thing I would ask (to speed up my personal workflow significantly) would be to have an “export current sample” option just like you can export the current loop only. I do so much sample chopping in here and sometimes have a whole mess of things all in one file and would love to be able to just export one sample at a time. Again, thanks for making my favorite app.

- A Producers Dream

Played with lots of apps for music, this one had to be written by a producer. Straight forward, fast, and the necessary tweaks to get you where you want to be. Not a bunch of hidden menu tricks and processes. Straight in your face productions and super easy to use. This is a must have and a no brainer. I use it on my phone more than iPad. I sample sounds out in the field all the time. And this makes it just way more easier than anything I’ve ever used. Just get it,... you’ll get it. Koala; how about adding the ability to press and hold clear button then press a sample button to erase just that sound from a sequence? Winner, winner chicken dinner!!! I’m embarrassed my friends for not knowing that it does that already, thank you for clearing that up for me, going to eat that chicken dinner now. Appreciate the timely from response you!

- Fantastic App and it keeps getting better

This app is genius and could easily be priced at 10x the cost, so definitely buy it before they realize that and raise the price. It takes the workflow of a traditional sampler (SPs and MPCs) and mixes it with amazing UI to make an even better production workflow. Elf audio is continually making updates and improvements so it has only gotten better over time. There is a very active user community forming, only a matter of time before this app truly blows up. The simplicity of this app is what makes it so good and effective, if you are looking for a full featured DAW you will be disappointed. However, you will find a powerful tool for creating beats wherever you are, just look at Dibiase’s Koala beats on social media and you will see how powerful the app can be with the right perspective.

- I’m obsessed with this app

I’m relatively new to music production, but I’ve found this app to be very intuitive and useful. I’ve always wanted to get into sampling in a more serious way, and this app really scratches that itch. I own a PO-33 and, while I love it, this has essentially replaced it. The price is fantastic as well. While the app is incredible, the only real feature I would wish could be added is some kind of way to edit the timing of different samples in the loops that you have already recorded (in the same way midi can be edited after the fact). However, I understand that this may be a difficult (or impossible) feature to implement. Regardless, if you have an interest in sample based music, I cannot recommend this app enough.

- A Dream Come True

I’ve been waiting, and hoping, for something like this for years. A full on, no b.s., sampler that will allow me endless creative freedom, with a great workflow, that is Ableton compatible. Thank you so much for this product. There’s no better way to spend $4.00. Now I can go outside, and start a music project on my IPad on a nice day, and them bring it home in the evening, and put on the finishing touches in Ableton. This app should win an award. What I’d like to see in an update: 1) Numbers added to the audio edit, so that you can visually see how many bars your sample is. 2) Auto chop audio by transient, or by beat. 3) Sample warping, so they don’t speed up, or slow down, based on the pitch. 4) The ability to choose different keys for the scales. I believe right now, the key of the scale for the keyboard feature is whatever key the sample is in. I would love to be able to have the scale dictate the key of the sample, instead of the other way around. With those four updates, this app would be absolutely perfect, but it’s already a great achievement. Cheers!

- Love This Thing! One feature request! Okay, Two...

I ❤️ Koala Sampler’s layout, features, and ease of use. My request is for landscape mode be made available for iPad. I use a Focusrite iPad dock and portrait mode isn’t practical in terms of workflow going from App to app. The second request is to be able to easily transfer songs & sample set-ups from iPhone to iPad. Maybe via iCloud? That way the iPhone can be used as a Field Sampler, & the iPad can be used, with it’s more ergonomically friendly size, for further song & soundscape production. Seriously, Landscape mode would make this incredible work-flow wise if it were an option. Thank you

- Awesome sampler

I have only used it for about an hour but it’s very easy to get started and has a lot of power for an affordable app. I was looking for something like the old days. I could play a sound into the Emulator II where I worked and have a beat looped in seconds. I have a full on software sampler but you have to record in one program and drag files to it, assign a key range etc. which is precise but not creative. It records from the iPad mic but I was able to use a Rocksmith guitar cable into a Camera kit adapter to record line level samples with ease. I am sure it could be more than what it is, but then it wouldn’t be what it is!

- For lo-fi heads

I love this app. It’s like a nod to the SP-303 and PO-33 and I’m a big fan of both. It almost checks off all my wishes I had for a portable sampler. The workflow is smooth making it easy to use and bang out ideas quickly. I picked up an iRig 2 that works perfectly for sampling from any line out and it takes this app to the next level. It even has a 3.5 mm headphone jack that allows you to monitor your sample source and the Koala app while it’s plugged in. I feel like I underpaid for this app and I would gladly pay for extra features like a one shot option for samples, sample load and a simple step sequencer, but that doesn’t take away from how dope this app already is. I’d also like to see the ability to load tracks into the performance section to be able to do 303 style beat sets. Looking forward to future updates to this slick app. Edit: I’d like to see an update that allows copying a pattern or sample between one page/bank to the next. Edit 2: I figured out how to move patterns from page to page. Sorry.

- Best! pocket Sampler(Ever!)

This now officially the Best pocket sampler even at twice the price. Current release fixed a really annoying bug ( thank you thank you) and now is the go to app for quick and easy beat/song making. Developer has shown great commitment to this app and encourage everyone to show support by also purchasing Sample Toy and KoalaFX as I have to help further support development of this great sampler. Looking forward to future enhancements one of which I hope is Multi Out for external processing of samples would be the final Icing on the cake. Superb! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 🌟 🏆

- Super fun Sampler

First off, great fun! The comparisons to PO-33 and SP type samplers are spot on. My gripes are fairly minor and if addressed this would be five stars. UPDATED review: * Since the last update, I have had issues where I lost a whole song after a crash. * Feature request: Quantize when jumping to next sequence. Like Ableton, I would like it to play from the start of the bar when I click next sequence bubble. Or quantize to quarter, half bar, 16th etc. * When recording into sequence, sometimes a loop will quantize close to the end of the bar, rather than on 1:1:1 of the bar. This throws timing off when importing into a daw. * allow 44.1 sampling rate. Is there a tech reason we’re stuck at 48? • Still an issue: Trash can popping up while I’m playing or editing. Let me turn that off once I’m done sampling. • Add a wet/dry on the input fx. A few of them almost unusable (fuzz, robot, bass synth). They’re cool sounding, they just turn every sample into the same three sounds. Overall, nice work! ~mikenoface

- Outstanding!

It’s like having a sp-404 in your pocket. The UI is such that when you go to do something, it is done in a way that comes naturally without having to think about it, such press for duration of record and drag and drop to duplicate. The features and limitations are in perfect balance to foster creativity whether quickly getting ideas down or doing something more sculpted and spending a little time making. Dev seems responsive and involved. One of my most used music apps as of late, def recommend especially for the price.

- Amazingly robust and accessible

Koala is such an amazing tool! Been using it for several months and it continues to improve. The developer really listens to users and increases the value of this app continually. Recent additions of amplitude envelopes for samples and the highly desired Landscape Mode for iPad really took this over the top for me; had to add my enthusiastic five star review. Great for capturing quick sounds from the surrounding world or sampling from other music apps in AUM. Also fun driving Koala’s pads with midi sequencers like Rozeta Suite or Fugue. Excited to see where Koala goes in the future!

- Good app but flawed

I love the app. To me it’s one of the better Samplers out there. But I have some complaints.. or suggestions. We should have the ability to edit/fine tune our sequences to make sure everything is on time. There should also be a count down to record. And there’s a glitch that makes your samples not play back when you have recorded them in the sequence. I also wish it had a few more effects (like Half time) and/or more control over some of the existing effects (like reverb). With all this said I still really like the app and I hope you guys make more!

- Plz make this addition with the next update

This app is dope but one thing I would like to be added is an editable step sequencer sorta like fl studio that way I can get in and create my own grooves and properly set sample chops where I need them because my timing be a bit off. Also a composing window where I can put all my ideas together. I know everything comes with time but those features will definitely take this app to another level. Freedom of creation is key. Keep up the great work I’m teaching my daughter how to make beats with this so she can hear the value of all things that create sound.

- Best musical app for iOS

This is the most user friendly sampler I’ve probably ever used. I’ve sampled lots of hits from my drum kit and some of my favorite synths from OP1 into this app and basically have a Pocket Operator on my phone now. Very pumped for these new effects! I haven’t tried it yet, but the ability to send data to Ableton live is pretty incredible for mobile composers or any musician who become easily inspired on the go. Thank you for making such an intuitive app! Landscape mode would be fantastic as well as ADSR controls for individual samples! 👽🤘💯

- Best music app out there

Even though I keep buying each major music producing app as they come out, I still always come back to this app. It’s a beat beast. My only complaint is that triplets are very hard to make happen but they’re definitely doable. Also this is a side note My ear may be off but it seems to me like the triplet stutter is a bit wonkey. I can work with it but if you put the Met on and hold the stutter right in the middle to make triplets they don’t seem to line up. Other than that an AMAZING app

- Really amazing work

My two favorite samplers have always been the Korg Electribe and the SP 404. Grooverider GR-16 nailed the electribe workflow but the App Store was lacking in a true SP inspired app until Koala showed up. It feels like really getting your hands dirty with audio in a way that few other apps do. It’s as simple as building collages with magazines and scissors but the depth is completely up to your imagination, and like the SP, you’re not shoehorned into any one way of working. Awesome work and thank you for putting this one out there. I’m going to make a lot of music with it.

- From brain to sequenced

I am always drumming and humming stuff that pops into my head. This app makes it so easy to grab the inspiration and sequence it. Then you can just run with the sound you got, or replace with more hi-fi samples. I made a fairly intricate beat within minutes of first opening it, and it was a lot more fun then working in my daw. For me, this provides a workflow that separates the creative process from the production and engineering process. That’s something that I’m sure a lot of people struggle with. Excellent app... thanks for creating it!

- Near speechless.

How do I come up with a title for this review? What words can I use that explains how fast, FUN, and intuitive this little sampler is. It’s more than just a sampler. It’s like having an sp404 with a better sequencer on your phone. I’ve made music with other apps, but never as often and as consistent as I do with koala. If I could dare ask for anything to change, it’d be more effects, and the option to change the background image of the sampler (without doing the hack).

- Amazing and always improving

I can't say enough great things about this app. The developer definitely has a passion in this. As if I didn't love it initially, every update is something great. Now there's additional effects! I just sample whatever in real time, like my washing machine or stuff at a grocery store or whatever, and instantly I can sketch out some amazing loops and pieces to utilize further in a daw or other apps, or a hardware sampler. This is worth the price and in my top 5 apps I must have

- Great app

This app is slowly becoming one of my go to apps for sampling percussive kits on the go! I was so sad when real beat stopped getting development but this is better and getting better too. If there is one thing I wish this current version had tho is landscape mode support when running on iPads as it’s somewhat awkward to have to turn the device around when running along side other music apps via Audiobus or AUM.

- Great app, very fun, wish it had AUV3

Really fun and well designed. My favorite ios sampler. It has lots of functionality, but it's hard to get all the way to complete sounding tracks. I've found it best for coming up with loops that I turn into full tracks in other apps or software. My main wishlist feature would be AUV3 support, so it played nicer with others. Also, please add individual track exporting for Ableton. It's a letdown that you only get all of the pads together, rather than each pad as a separate loop.

- It’s good. I have made good music out of it but that’s all there is to it.

This music making app is okay. I’ve been using it for a while. First it was complicated, but now i finally know what i’m doing. But yet, it just isn’t enough. Whenever i’m using the keyboard to increase the pitch of whatever sound i programmed into Koala, it doesn’t sound right because the octaves aren’t right. It pretty much skips an note instead of giving me the exact note i want. Another thing is that whenever i want to roll a certain beat, i can’t do that. There’s a lot that Koala is missing & i am suggesting an improvement.

- My favorite music app

This pocket sampler is easily the best money I’ve spent on a music app, ever. The recent update introduced some fantastic features like one shot mode for samples and Ableton Live Set export!!! I use Ableton primarily so Im super hyped about that. I’m looking into purchasing a new iPad for music work, and this app has me very inspired to create on the go. I can’t wait to try it out on an iPad instead of on my phone! I can’t believe it only cost $3!

- Very dope and easy to use for beginners

Dibia$e brought me here... laptop out of commission so was looking up ways to produce without a cpu and came across this dope cost friendly app... Not sure if anyone else has suggested but would love a zoom tool when editing samples, unless im over looking one that’s already in the app... and quantization would make this even better... first time making beats this type of way compared to cpu software and it’s fun so far... for mpc or SP users this should be a breeze

- Fun app. Still could use some pro features

I love the app and it could be a five star app. Needs a few features. Developers, Please please add ability to record the effects. I would love to be able to hit record and perform the effects and have the automation recorded. Do this and no app will even compare to the functionality and playability. Also please a count-in option to the record.!! As it stands now the app is fun and easy to use. A few small tweaks would make it pro level and easily 5 star app

- I like it but...

Would be REALLY nice if I could use a(n) auv3 plug-in or two when using the “perform” mode. I realize a lot of allocations may need to be allocated and inevitably some ninny is gonna try to run Turnado and Saturn 2 or some other possibly high resource grabbers on their iPad 2 or iPhone 5 and this thing will probably cause a tear in the matrix but if this could somehow work, it brings this already super fun app to next-level cool!

- The best app on iOS

This app is amazing. It’s a great sampler, has great effects for resampling, cool dj effects for performing and let’s you easily save songs and individual sounds. Obviously not gonna replace the feel of say an sp404 but gives a lot of the functionality and you basically always have your phone so you should get it so you have it. Then you can make music anywhere. Stay sharp.

- Buy it. Support it. It’s awesome

I’m loving this app. I rarely buy apps and I couldn’t pass on this. It does so much well! The UI, the sampling and composing. It’s all fantastic. I understand it’s for sampling but having some built in drum sounds that you can always reference would be awesome. Having a sequencer with a built in grid system to drop sounds in would really help out. Also, it would be awesome to have some predefined chords in the “piano roll” key section in the sequence pane. I sampled a piano note, having it build chords or having a chord gallery option would be spot on. Otherwise this app is fantastic Edit: Really enjoying this app, it’s been updated very frequently with fantastic updates and improvements!

- A lot of fun for the money

It’s a blast to play with and I can see myself integrating this into my music making process. It’s great that it already works with Ableton Link and AudioShare. Bonus point is awarded because my toddler likes it too. Two things I’d love to see in future updates: - editing notes within patterns after recording - applying effects to samples after recording

- Fantastic sampler....

With the new updates that include stem export and choke groups i am having more musical fun than I have had in a while. This is a near perfect app...imo. It’s now where I start and then compose most of a beat. I finish the work elsewhere for mixing/mastering but am grateful for the amount of work I can get done with koala. Thank you! Keep up the great work!

- The Best Drum Machine Sampler with FX

This beast is amazing! I love this thing and it’s infectious! The price is perfect and while your at it pick up there FX IAA. It’s incredible too. The only thing I with they would do is make it an AUv3 so that I can use it in AUM without having to go back and forth. It’s more for ease of use purposes. Buy and you won’t regret it! Please make it an AUv3. If you have to charge a couple bucks more it will be worth the money.

- No Background Audio option??

Tried opening another app while this was looping and its audio just faded out. No setting for allowing the audio to play in the bground. Then clicked ‘Help’ and it was a webpage with a header but absolutely nothing for content, blank. Also would be nice to be able to double the length of a loop instead of having to the to record the extra bars of pattern if you decide to change a 2 bar loop into a 4 bar loop. Hopefully these will be addressed.

- Highly recommended for sample heads!

Simple, intuitive, and yet very powerful. Everything you need, nothing you don’t want. I have a Korg Microsampler. This thing reminds me of it. I also had a PO-33. The instant effects remind me of that. The mic effects are a GREAT touch. Particularly the bass synth effect is handy for turning your voice into slurred synth lines. Great job. Absolutely terrific.

- Love it but Could use a better sequencer!

Koala is a great sampler and recorder! I’ve found it super easy to record different sounds and easily transfer to my computer. The only think I wish is that the sampler worked better. I know I don’t have the best rhythm but it seems to quantize my drums/etc weird and not on beat. Overall tho one of my favorite apps and used daily!

- Like an SP-404 on your phone!

I love this app! Hours of sampling fun! It reminds me of sampling on my old SP-404 but the workflow is much faster. The mic and performance effects are terrific! I just wish the performance effects had a “fall off” option so the change isn’t so abrupt when releasing them. Either way, this app is worth every penny (and more)!

- Great app, great tool,

Integration with ableton is nice. Airdropping samples from splice on the Mac to your iPhone and into koala is a breeze. I use this all the time and I own an sp 404 sampler, so it’s nice to have a similar style mobile sampler with faster workflow . I’d say it’s almost perfect. Can we maybe have import audio from other saved projects in the future?

- Dope app str8 up and down like 6 o’clock !!!

Only thing I would suggest is when selecting the next sequence to play for the current sequence to play all the way through before it goes to the next selected sequence like on the sp 404sx sequencer it always stay in sequence. This would really useful when recording a song. THA

- Awesome App just one wish...

My only wish would be a fade tool in the sample edit window, that could increase the fade out amount of the sample, or even just a button that would increase the fade amount with each press Other than that two thumbs up!

- Fantastic tool!

I never write reviews. But this app is totally imperative for me. I use it constantly and it fits into every project I work on. It’s just that great. Also, each update it gets better and better! Thanks for the attack and decay! Perhaps parameter cut offs one day?? I don’t only use this on an iOS device (with AUM) But I’ve also found ways to integrate it with my hardware as well (irg + midi linkSync + Ableton link.) The sp303 was the first sampler I owned and sadly the pads and connectors have died...so I am really grateful this app exists. Don’t front on this one...I’ve seen a few respected beat makers throw this one into the mix....

- Amazing, just one thing for me though.

In the sequence tab where we bring up your keyboard, can we have the ability to long hold each sound so it loops and doesn’t abruptly end? If that is already a possibility i’m sorry I didn’t look better.

- 404-heads unite!

If you don’t want to dish out the $500 for a Roland SP-404sx, consider dishing out the $4 for this incredible app instead. An intuitive workflow and inspiring performance capabilities mean you’re making music in no time. The one thing I’d like to see is more skins - possibly even the ability to use custom skins?

- Fanfreakingtastic!

I have quite a few sampler apps, but NONE of them are as intuitive as this little gem. You can hit the ground running with this. Brand new and the wonderful developer is already adding even more improvements. Don't hesitate. Highly recommended!

- Mind blowing

Made a decent beat within 10 minutes of installing this app. I use hardware samplers like the Roland sp404sx and teenage engineering po33, but the convenience of having a legitimate phrase sampler on your phone for incredible. For less than $5 it’s almost unbelievable.

- GUI glitch causes part of pads not to show

Great app, the only three things I would add is providing some attach decay on the samples, utilizing 3D Touch and allowing the FX hold to work independently per FX. Unfortunately, the GUI is glitched out on my iPhone 7 and won’t display the right half of the right 4 pads on the grid. It still works if you hit in right location, just looks broken. Also, it won’t work with Bluetooth headphones, maybe to avoid latency issues?

- Pretty awesome PO-33 style app

When I first saw the video I thought “Finally! Someone has made a Pocket Operator app!” - it’s as close as you’re gonna get to a PO-33 for a fraction of the cost. I’ve been playing around with it some and it’s quite rad. Hoping for sample import so I can lift stuff out of stuff like Blocs Wave and Launchpad. But for what it is and does it’s a solid piece of kit!

- the pinnacle

this application is truly great. anybody who has ever owned a sampler and been frustrated by the workflow, needs to just get this. this app gets completely out of your way and i doubt you would even need to watch the tutorial vid. and even though it is simple, pretty much all the features you'd expect in a hardware sampler are in here in the most logical place. it's also super responsive. this is exactly what i wish would've been available 20 years ago when i started down the rabbithole.

- Very simple Inter Audio practical sampler

Just bough and used it with Cubasis. It will record Midi data, and you can apply Cubasis effects to it, but you can only use one instance... hope Marek upgrades it to AUv3 and overcome this important limitation. Plus I’ll be able to use it in GarageBand that way too. Then we’ll all be happy.

- Great app, Great support!

I won't add much to what's already been said, but this is an excellent sampler. Easy to use and learn. Intelligent and well designed work flow. Powerful and it sounds great. Add to that fantastic and responsive support. Super impressed! Buy it, you won't regret it.

- Perfection.

All the effects have given me a reason to not buy an SP404 or PO33 for large quantities of money, the sampler is brilliant, sequencer is amazing with a bit of auto-quantisation, what’s there not to love. Definitely worth the price.

- This sampler is DOPE AF!

It’s so intuitive, fun and instantly rewarding. I’ve made more music on koala in the first few days than any other app. Just buy it. You won’t regret it.

- Please add vinyl crackle!

This is awesome, to make it supreme, please add vinyl crackle and individual fx to samples. I love how this app just keeps getting better!! A must have!

- Best iPhone music app I’ve seen

Extremely intuitive, fun, and practical for music.

- Nice app!

Lots of fun and great for creating interesting sounds and riffs. The developer keeps adding great new features. Top app and top dev.

- Love this app

This is such a powerful app. Would recommend this to anyone.

- This is DOPE AF

An amazing and intuitive sampler. This is sooooo good. And it’s super cheap. Nice work 🙌🏼

- Great fun

Bought it yesterday, have already spent maybe 6 hours in it, addictive and very fun, seems the dev is very engaged so I'm sure we'll see new features.

- 404 killer

I love this app. It’s the everything I wanted from the sp 404, with touch pad effects like the Kaoss pad. It’s a dream to use.

- The hell happened???

This app was so great, I made a whole 8 song tape on it and it worked fine until the latest update... loading takes forever, always crashes, sometimes doesn’t save, even if I save it manually, crashes if I turn off my phone for a second, deletes samples and loops for no reason... This app was so good until this update... if you patch these bugs, this will be a 4, maybe a 5 for me.

- Marek Bereza, thanks. Awesome is the only world can discribe your app

The possibility are infinit. Im totaly no voice about how much your app is fantastic. The power of creation can be totaly develop and use as is maximum with Koala app. Marek Bereza is the second Genius in all this generation right after Steve Jobs. We all superstar now with this kind of app. You are Great keep goong Bento

- Impressive

First time I feel compelled to leave a review. Incredibly designed intuitive app, a real joy to use. Coming from an experienced 404 user, they really nailed the machines work flow, if not improved upon it. Do not hesitate, if you are reading this - you need this app in your life!!

- Oustanding Sampler

Fun, easy to use and fun to use. Did I say fun to use?

- This is it.

This is the one. Pretty much everything that an SP 303/404, with some major quality of life improvements. I would even argue that this app singlehandedly outclasses them. Super easy to pick up, fun to use and really brings the joy of beat making to the forefront. Don’t sleep on this.

- Tight

As a dev, I can tell how good the code under the hood of this app is. Major kudos. Beyond the quality, this is simply an app that is wildly capable and brings joy to people from beginner to advanced. In fact, if you’ve never used a sampler in your life, get this app, love this app.

- This app is money

Love how simple and straight forward this app is I sold my po pocket ko cuz this workflow is so much nicer Wish it had a bit more live juggles in the preform sector Maybe like like the flytape or maybe allow a plug-in to join I would pay for more features Thanks GOONKNOX

- So great.

Delete all your other apps. This is the time killer you’ve been waiting for.

- Good but limited

Awesome little sampler, but limited in how you can edit the audio. Wish there was more effects or audio manipulation for the samples (stretching audio for example)

- Best mobile DAW

I’ve tried FL Mobile and SampleBot for quite a bit and must admit I prefer this. It’s a GREAT old school gridless interface (with sequencers). It takes a little getting used to, but it does force you to easily rework song structure, and make you feel like a G. Missing one star, as I would like a count-in on the sequencers, although real hardware would’nt give this ability, the app should. Likewise, listening to a sequence while recording on an other one would be also be nice, but at least the metronome is there. It has the simplicity I need. Really all of the essential is here. The built in fx are great. You just need dope samples in your files app and you’re well on your way to making dope beats. I’ve had a small tempo sync problems with Audiobus but the devs reply darn fast and found the solution which is simply setting Audiobus at 48kbps. This is the easiest way to make beats that I know of. I highly doubt anybody is gonna regret getting this. People have been using phones at LoopSessions in Ottawa and Montreal a whole lot more because of this app. Puuuuurchase it.

- I sold my SP404

I’ve spent hundred on the app store on music production apps and this one is the only one I use daily! Its seriously the most intuitive and the best for the music I make. Only thing I find would be missing is more controls on the FXs because after a while they get a bit annoying. Other than that I’d like to thank the developper to make such a good app!

- So much fun

So I paid like $5.50 for an app. And now all I do is sit around sampling our cat and dog and wife and remix them into songs and it’s great.

- Absolutely brilliant!

It looks good. Has great features. It’s intuitive. It’s fun. It works. Pay up front get all the features. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

- Perfect

Simple to use. Great UI. Everything you need to create on the go. Just start the application and play. It is fun. Everything (almost) has been cleverly designed. Congrats!

- Incredible!

This app is amazing. Everything it does is fast, musical and intuitive. I hope they add live looping and loop slicing in the future—I’d even pay for these as add-ons. It’d also be nice if there were more intuitive ways to resample audio from other iOS apps in real-time. Already as it is it’s a must-have sampling app!

- Koala Sampler

Truly Amazing!! Looking Forward to Many updates ❤️

- Best App

This is a must app, the only thing is landscape mode for iPad

- So so good.

Wish I could buy it twice, it’s such a wonderful musical sampler. Easily the best one on iOS. Just buy it!

- Wonderful

I had to sell my my beloved sp404sx a few years ago because I was beyond dead broke and still miss it to this day. Koala actually brings the same advantages and improvements over the Sp series for a fraction of the price.It might be all that I need plus an iOS interface!

- So much fun to be had

So easy, fun and very nicely designed. Love playing with this thing but it is getting in the way of my doing the things that I should be doing!

- Koala is the BEST!

This app is an amazing sampler/sequencer! Absolutely fantastic, easy to use and has endless possibilities. I particularly love the pitch flexibility aspect. Also like the new FX. This app is a must have for all music makers! To the dev: 1) Thank you, the app is excellent. 2) Please can you make landscape orientation available for iPad? 3) The only other thing missing for me would be measure length: if we could make the bar length anything between, say, 2-20 beats (and have the metronome match), it would be extremely helpful. Thank you again!

- Meh. Not that great.

Hardly a “replacement” for a real sampler. There’s really not much accuracy or nuance for the fx. Plus there’s no fx normalization so they get really loud and sound cheap and bad. You also can’t really edit your sequences. The pitching isn’t that good either. Beware. It’s ok but not groundbreaking, visionary, or revolutionary. It’s also not that inspiring. It is fair to moderate for sketching out ideas however. About what you’d expect for 4 bucks.

- Incredible app

Learning so much from this app and having a blast! Just wish there was an undo button so I didn’t have to start from scratch after every screw up.

- Almost there

Koala is great, definitely more convenient than the hardware it's inspired by, but still leaves alot to be desired. But the great thing about apps is new features can and will be added, so i'm looking forward to Koala surpassing (that one hardware sampler) one day. Keep up the great work!

- Conversions

The files to transfer over with the same quality always it’s pick and choose with the files . Some are loud some aren’t even when the files is quality audio

- Cool app but keeps ruining beats!

I like this app a lot it’s very useful and incredibly dope and fun to use! But it’s not fun when I open a project and at random without me doing anything Koala has either pitched my entire beat or the tempo is thrown off to the point where I have to start over! I dig this app but if I continue losing dope beats I will probably get rid of it!

- Best app I have bought in a while

Addictive, simple, effective. I was hooked from the first moment. I look forward to seeing where the developer takes this next.

- Fantastic Pocket Operator Replacement

This app is so great and is so much fun! I love creating simple grooves in this thing and playing around with them in the built in effects. I just have one request: Can we have a mute function. I think with some sort of simpler volume control this sampler would be complete Thanks Edited: This thing just keeps getting better, thank you so much for adding the Background Function

- Hey awesome app but why no choke groups?

I got this the first day it came out. I’ve used it for multiple reasons fx and sampling mostly but if choke groups were implemented it would definitely be a major go to for my music production. Also there’s an AU storm brewing any chance this app is going to be an Audio Unit? It would be very beneficial to Auv3 community.

- Almost perfect.

Great app that is very easy to use. It is very similar to using an sp303. My biggest issue with it is that you cannot precisely adjust cents on pitch so it makes it impossible to perfectly loop things like drums. For one shots this isn’t much of a problem.

- Lack of a programable sequencer but still my favorite iOS app

Hands down my favorite iOS app, I love how much work and love you put into this, please keep going, the addition of a programable sequencer, and make a sequence of patterns would make it the most perfect music app ever.

- Crashes in ApeMatrix:(

Update: filled out form on dev site regarding issue mentioned. No response since. :/ Refund? This is a great app on its own, but it sure would be nice if it played better with others. Running in ApeMatrix is a big part of my workflow. I take it for granted that I can run non-daw-sized music apps in it. KoalaSampler crashes in ApeMatrix immediately on loading. That’s a bit odd for a mature app. Does what it says on the tin well otherwise.

- God sampler...but.

Best and fastest sampler by far. Just for some reason I can’t get it to work with inter app audio inside mod step. Midi pad learn would be nice. Also,I wish I could import audio file to the exact pad I want and not just the next available one.

- Sweet sampler

This is a really cool intuitive little sampler. Perfect for beginners but holds up the standards for experienced beat makers. However. I don’t see any way of sampling in trigger mode. I sample a lot of percussion so I need two hands to drum. A threshold trigger would be great so you don’t have to go in and edit the sample. Bang, your beat is right there.

- Best Sampler App for iOS

Simple & powerful. Everything you want from a sampler app. No sleazy in app purchases or subscriptions either. Regular updates. Finally a dev who care about their app & user base.

- Amazing- please add looping!

This app is easily the most amazing app I’ve ever used for the iPhone for creating music! Would love to see them at a looping function similar to the sampler in GarageBand to put the icing on the cake.

- Getting better and better

I purchased Koala when it was first released. This app have improved so much over the past months. I hope the developer will keep improving it! Wishlist: To be able to apply effects after recording the sample; To be able to use au3 effects on each sample; To be able to use au3 effects on bus/master track; Built in tuner while adjusting sample pitch;

- Soooo fun

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a piece of music creation software so immediate and so fun. Seems crazy to me, but it somehow manages to beat out most hardware on this front too. No small feat!

- Great App But..

This App is a lot of fun until it crashes and looses all your Beats..Having problems since updating iOS ..Sequences get all jumbled up and play back as if at the wrong bpm after crash

- Wow!

Super easy to use! I am a professional composer with a full studio of gear. This app is now part of my work flow! I have had it for 24hrs and already written half a dozen songs.

- Record song bug

There is a bug in record song mode that closes the app when you press play. Can’t we expect a fix for this

- This is everything I’ve been looking for

Absolutely love this app, have been needing something like this in my set up for some time now 👌🏼👌🏼

- Amazing

I love this app! I have gotten more inspiration with this little app in the past month than I have in a year with my studio setup. Simple yet complex. Love it!

- This app fire but needs a few adjustments.

I feel like if there was an option to stutter the pads individually like make Hi-Hats triplet while holding them down and also sequence it like a 808; as well as add individual effects to each pad like reverbs and EQ; it would be ultimate.

- Love app but it keeps closing now.

App keeps closing when I try to open it. I want to get on but I can’t. And I’m afraid that if I delete the app that I will lose my beats UPDATE: deleted the app and lost all of my saved beats 😞

- So much freakin fun!

This is such a killer sound app and so much fun. This developer is on the ball with update refinements regularly to make an excellent app even better. Highly Recommended!

- Scrapped projects

Every time I come back to the app after working on a project, my sequences have added sounds, doubled drum patterns that I most certainly did not add myself. I’ve had to restart a project three times because of this. What’s the use of this app if I can’t save my projects correctly?

- I love this APP !! Best sampling & loops

I’ve loving this app since the first day. It just keeps getting better. Especially for people that love making beats & Sp404sx. If you love Samples you’ll love this app. 🔑

- Ugh one annoying bug is keeping this app from being the greatest sampler for iPhone.

If you record new samples as you’re sequencing and you want to undo them, it actually will just undo the previous loops before those new samples instead.

- Midi Editor

The only thing I can think of that would make it better is if there was a midi editor to rearrange midi notes in a sequence

- Mind blowing good

I wish we had a way to make samples cut each off with one shot enabled. Other then that this app is dope it’s like having a sp404 or Pocket operator. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 5/5

- Shout out to Dibiase

This is the best sampler/music making app 100% The resample function and the ease of use of all other features key to sample based music are outta sight

- Deep sampling app

Having so much fun with this! Great start right out of the gate, and already two updates. More to come for sure.

- Please allow to sample from other apps!!

This app is great but I would love to be able to sample from the output of other apps.

- Love

Only one request, update midi editing. It’s hard to play anything past 16th notes.

- Great app

Love this app and great for sampling and playing on mobile. Simple but effective all around. Excited for updates.

- No landscape for iPad

Looks great, plays great but hoping landscape support is planned since all my other music apps are this way and I hate having to rotate my iPad just for this app.

- Great sampler app!

To the developer: please add at least a global EQ band! Make that update happen!! That would improve the music production experience greatly!!!

- Koala strawberry

Delay is not working which something that’s important to my creativity, Please fix!

- thank you so much

This is the best app I’ve ever gotten thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 100% any updates would be a blessing! 🤯🤯🤯

- No complaints

Very user friendly and very awesome. For 4$ EVERY beat maker should own this

- fantastic

best iOS sampler? the best? well it's THE most inspiring, easy to use and fun to create with! finally!

- Awesome

This really makes sampling very easy. Highly recommend it.

- Sample, sequence & glitch your world

Great workflow. Sequencing and then messing up samples is a breeze. Would love to see this as an Audiobus 3 output to sample iOS noise makers.

- It’s so good

Insanely versatile for a 4 dollar app, I absolutely love it and can’t wait to grow with it

- Request

Koala is excellent! The price is great! If any updates do come to add features, I have these requests... Truncate/trim & more nice effects! This is a great starting point for creative sampling! Beginning samplists may jump right into making music quickly for a bargain! 5 stars

- Obsessed

I don’t know why I waited so long to buy this app. Now I’m obsessed.

- So much fun

Quick snappy sampler reminiscent of SP404 hardware. I love the quick trimming and resampling functions, and the performance fx are engaging. This is awesome for hip hop!

- Please add “chop to pads”

Functionality is great, super stable, super simple, but needs a chop to pads function. I feel like this would appeal to most users. Hopefully it’s in the new update! 🤞🏼

- Wish it was AuV3

Great little sampler. Wish it was also AuV3 compatible but it’s unique and quick fun. Thank you!?!
