Used_paper_bag - 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!
mainplaner - Like a better, more fun PO-33 or SP-404
This is far and away my favorite music app for iOS. I always keep coming back to it, paying for the Samurai update was a no-brainer. If you've ever used a teenage engineering PO-33 or a Roland SP-404 the workflow is very similar. That being said the speed with which you can do things in this app and the amount you can do blows me away. You can just use it as a sequenced sample player or, with the samurai update, you can now start turning your samples into proper synths in their own right (set em to loop and shorten the length a lot). The developer has done a really amazing job of keeping a good balance between quick music creation in the moment, while also providing enough detailed and smart additional tools so that you can tweak your sounds and beats to your heart's content - all without cluttering up the UI. This is one of the few iOS music apps I would actually trust live.
Jason Judovin - 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.
Manelee Arnbee - 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!
coby ash - 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.
Choppinbroccoli - 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.
vurnt22 - 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
Mehmui - Love it!
Fixed! Stereo recording! But now it doesn’t record st unity gain? Seems to be 6db down. Still clicks on recording start and now seems to have a slight gap at end.
- !! Please oh please can there be a toggle for select on “play/ midi note”. It would be nice to be able to edit one sample at a time without having to stop playback.
- snap to zero crossing. I have some samples that start with a click and or end with a click.
- please allow for recording to snap to quantize? This could be a samarai feature. For recording loops especially. In addition an edit snap feature for setting a start point in time. This feature set essentially how blocwave did recording snd editing.
- super super huge request. Please allow for individual fx per sample or bank 🙏🏽
- some individual outputs.
- it’s gotta somehow be possible to make modern mode pitch shiftable, even by just one octave? It does sound the best of the three algos.
Thanks for making such a cool tool, its straight ahead and really easy to work and be inspired.
Still 5 stars.
Marsh of Beat Brothers - Crazy Game Changer!!!
This app is so dope! My workflow for making beats has gone through the roof with Koala. I love not only sampling and making beats but I get lost in the joy of sound design with the resampling and effects. The one thing I would like to see is being able to export full song arrangement stems after you record a song instead of just sequence loop stems. Plenty of ways to work around that with other apps but it would be nice to do it within the app. That’s not even a minus though just a wish list item. I truly love making music on this app!!! Koala effects is great too and sampletoys is fun too from the same developer!
Sunburst12String - 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!
ShawBoog - 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.
cmruko - Fun, Simple, and Serious Music Making
Such an amazing app, really easy to use and understand. It’s a lot of fun but also a serious tool for creating music. Easy to play it live, or sequence the pads. The new IAP Samurai addition is awesome as well. Bought the IAP yesterday and immediately lost 2-3 hours. Lol. If you have some samples, loops, one shots, and hits on your device you can create anything, the FX are really great too. Even if you don’t have samples just make some with any household items. There are lots of free ones available as well. Works great with audioshare. Definitely 5 Stars.
TGE CAT SOOSOZ - Tried very hard with this app
I’ve had koala and it worked amazingly for a long time. It chopped and meshed samples perfectly and I loved the intuitiveness of it all. Easily the best feature is the capability of using recorded videos from your camera roll to use as samples as well.
Sadly, this app has been crashing like crazy. When I get a notification regarding full iCloud storage, or even trying to open a wav file using the app (for some reason it defaulted to koala) it would crash and clear my samples. Just today I was switching apps and upon switching everything was gone. Devs should really try to fix these random crashes, because even with updates the issue persists. Would have gotten a 5 if it was capable of storage for longer than a few days.
Sifi 315 - 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.
mikenoface - 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.
* 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
QuinnX. - 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! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 🌟 🏆
Sketcherazzi - 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!
Jayden_Letrell - 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!
brothisnameisnttaken - 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.
avk.digital - 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! 👽🤘💯
Riddimk - 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.
Mac Dramastic - By far the best Sampler on IOS
With every update this “Sampler” comes closer and closer to being a DAW! The interface is super intuitive and easy to learn. Nothing is hidden (except the Samurai upgrade at first lol). Mentioning the Samurai upgrade..this made this app essential to my workflow! I can chop samples with more ease than even an app like BM3 (which til now had my favorite sampler in iOS.) Autochop and Timestretch just blew this thing wide open and now I haven’t opened any other app for a week! Nothing for price is more powerful on iOS! Nothing at all!
ukiiknggfg - 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
aktwang - 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!
Nomadxoxo - 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).
chowderhead1962 - 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. I have one super minor request that has nothing to do with functionality, but instead the visuals. It would be ultra cool if there were themes or ways to choose the colors for the samples and interface.
Tyrone Slim - Best Sampler For iPad Ever Made
Simply the best and most feature rich sampler ever made for iPad. You can make killer beats, complete songs, entire albums with this magic making device. This does more than most of the software programs I own for a fraction of the price. It’s insanely underpriced for what it does. This is easily in my top 3 apps for iPad. I spend more time on this than my MPC, 404 , and SP 1200 combined. The sky is the limit for this sonic beast. Highly recommended.
The Elegant Mr Mos - 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.
East koast emprah - 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.
Littldevil - 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.
Geesace - 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 $3!
Jesveidnebej - Very dope and easy to use for beginners
Dibia$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
Mo Freeapps - 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!
sgranlund - Fun app. Still could use some pro features
I love the app and it could be a five star app. Needs a few features.
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
joshuwalrus - 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.
Nekkonetwork - 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!
SGarzia - 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
Flaco Picasso - First Ever Review
Been making beats for about a decade now. This app has my sp 404sx, and mpc one just sitting there collecting dust. If you would’ve told me while I was using nanoloop back in 2011 that there would be an app with this many functions and ease of use I’d have said you’re hi. So much fun, super easy, and the samurai update just solidified its place as my fav beat making app!
ledrea heaven - Please fix it
To be honest I really don’t want to give a bad review about this app because I really love this app and I enjoy it but the thing is it keeps shutting me out every single time I am making a project he keeps knocking me off can you guys please fix that issue because I’m starting to dislike the app right now so once again can you guys please fix this app because it keeps knocking me off thank you
Klrxs - 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.
Soft_Pizza - Probably the Best Sampling App
The best sampler out there for i phone my only issue is maybe add quantization or the ability to edit the timing of the sequence for more progress and less trial and error when syncing up your beats otherwise it’s pretty much perfect glad I got this app great fore making breakcore/jungle beats highly recommend sounds great with other apps
Laura Z 13 - Beat Making made Easy
Been a user for about a year now , It has become an indispensable tool for me , I make full sequences very quickly and efficiently..Chopping samples has never been easier. Developer is A+ and has a presence online and frequently updates and answers questions ...If you make beats you need this ...period
BenHere101 - 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.
Myfaceisnotacumbucket - Really amazing and fun
Really simple straight forward work flow. A portable simple stand alone sampler on your phone or tablet that allows you to sample anything anywhere. That’s amazing.
I have 2 suggestions though.
1. A piano roll just to tighten up the beats. And that’s it no other nonsense just to map out the beats....
2. An option to have when you push for a new pattern in completes the pattern it’s on and smoothly triggers into the next. I understand some people like it to trigger every time you hit the pattern bc I do to sometime but maybe some kinda button that enables a one shot for patterns? Idk....
Still this is a fantastic app. Great job to the designers.
DJ B-Flat - 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!
KingDiamond - 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)!
theloganrussell - 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!
Solomon of Kleptolia - 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.
sebastiankemml - 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?
soundcloud.com/pr4y - i love this app. 10 stars.
but lately after this new update even with NOTHING else playing on my ipad, everything is closed, background app refresh off, etc. It keeps randomly crashing on me and i lose all this work i had done. It is very very frustrating. not even beatmaker 3 or nanostudio do that. and Koala has never done it before. so If the amazing devs could figure this out for me then ill IMMEDIATLY GIVE 5 STARS. i only did one to get your attention. i use this app daily and i rely on it for a side income involving music production! please help!!
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
bEnWaGhOrN - 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.
Hired_G00Ns - So creative and intuitive!
Very user friendly & well designed. Excellent features. Would love to see a loop sustain mode in a future update (playhead separate to loop brace with loop ping pong movement)
Dazz26 - 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.
iOS Simon - Great app just a great IAP update.
Lots of fun and great for creating interesting sounds and riffs. The developer keeps adding great new features. Top app and top dev.
Conzza - 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!
Piggyintheblanket - Best iPhone music app I’ve seen
Extremely intuitive, fun, and practical for music.
thakidmz - Love this app
This is such a powerful app. Would recommend this to anyone.
big_ups - The most useful & fun beatmaking app
I’ve tried all the beat making apps but you guys got it right 👏
Chops.BigMac - Innovative
so much fun
Snufbox - This is DOPE AF
An amazing and intuitive sampler. This is sooooo good. And it’s super cheap. Nice work 🙌🏼
beaubrookes - Absolutely brilliant!
Very cool. Love my Koala here in Australia!

Perry Pelican - A winner
Great great app. Period.
One thing really bothers me. If you buy an app and you like it a lot, it's cool to communicate that to others by rating it. If an update has bugs, you DONT RATE IT AGAIN WITH A BAD RATING TO THREATEN THE DEVELOPER. You email the guy or girl to let him know. You know the app is good so why screw up the apps sales because of a bug that will get fixed. Ratings are not there to communicate with the developer. The thing that really shows that the people who do that do not care about anyone but themselves, is that they never change their bad rating. So the promise of hanging thé rating if the bug is fixed is never honoured.
Koala is fantastic. Every app has bugs sometimes. If every time a bug appeared everyone would give a bad rating, every app would have lousy ratings. Most people realize this so it's not a big problem. It's only bad when one if those ignorant people buy a great app.
Bookburner_ - More FX please
Awesome app, great compliment to my work flow and my hardware SP404.
Are there going to be any other FX added to the Kaola sampler?
Imported samples must always de « ready to go » but sometimes EQ, compression and others must be used in order to make everything fit together.
In order to do this I m’usât bounce samples back in forth between my SP, DAW and Koala.
Thanks again for such a cool app.
BeatzByBiz - This is Dope!!!
But we need this in auv3 to make it perfect!!!! It’s already the best sampler now let’s do this one last step. #auv3LetsDoIt!!!, great job guys keep up the great work.
JereSN - So good.
Extremely well thought out, fun. Get samurai mode! It’s worth it
Richeroni - Fantastic creative app!
So well designed. Smooth and wonderful experience.
SenzBeats - You won’t regret buying this app
It’s the best sampler for phone/iPad on the market & it changed how I make music for the better
Shabidus - 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.
DJCAM - 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.
exy day - 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.
Lontevo - 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
Puzzlefanquebec - Oustanding Sampler
Fun, easy to use and fun to use. Did I say fun to use?
dr00pyyy - 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.
Anonymousilicious - 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.
Phoopock - 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
Alex Dunae - So great.
Delete all your other apps. This is the time killer you’ve been waiting for.
Kyle Cain - 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)
Meparadis1 - 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!
Krestan - 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.
Turtle_free - 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!
t dot m - 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!
Tony1st48 - Koala Sampler
Looking Forward to Many updates ❤️
DJJuniorPops - Best App
This is a must app, the only thing is landscape mode for iPad
SteveOrandomnumbers - 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!
Rd Louis - 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!
cosmonautincanada - 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!
