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.
omg really tho. plz add this multitasking feature??
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.
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.
Thanks for the awesome app and the rigorous updates! Please consider adding IAA/ audio bus support so that users can sample from other instruments within iOS. App does not work well with external audio interface at the moment. For example, it still shows “mic” at the sample page instead of the actual interface name; you’ll have to menu dive to setting to switch the audio input; the app does not support audio interface with more than 2 inputs.
Cannot select midi channel. :(
koala is a true gem! It is the closest thing to perfection in an iOS music production app. The balance between minimalism and functionality gives the artist the right amounts of limitations, and forces you out of the box! I hope that the developer continues to manage that balance. A couple of more upgrades, could turn this into a central workflow app at least for me. Amazing! Worth it it three times the price… Or Hell, even for times! Bravo!
Just got the update giving one the ability to import from AudioShare. So so good! Lots of fun!! Don’t hesitate to buy this app. I haven’t had this much fun making music in ages. Spontaneous frictionless fun. Update: There have been a lot of updates since the comment I wrote above...such as the ability to pitch samples, one shot or latch mode, Ableton export, reverse samples, the ability to export all of your Koala created samples into a zip file and much more... I’ve always wanted either a piece of hardware or software that can do what this app can do. Using this app and importing from Audioshare, I’m getting nice long stereo samples! Another Update: Now you can sample in stereo from another music app or even over USB! This app is amazing, I would give it 6 stars if I could!
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!
I’ve got a couple of decades of music making experience and know some hardware and desktop DAWs inside out. Just nuts how much faster I’ve got ideas out from this app. So immediate, fun and can get quite deep with resampling.
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.
