Sir Sampleton iPhone app (similar to SK-1)

Post by paulslocum » Fri May 20, 2011 5:07 am

I've used the Casio SK1 for years to make music, and so I decided to write an iPhone app that basically did the same thing and also included a few extra features that I wanted. I recently added support for the AKAI Synthstation 25 keyboard, which is how I've been playing it primarily. I plan to add support for the Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer and CoreMIDI soon. For anyone that wants to try it out, below are a few codes that will let you install it for free. Please let me know what you think of it.

Here's the app:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sir-samp ... 73671?mt=8#

Promo codes, each can be used once:

LP9J73ANXFP3
7LMT7J7REXLX
4PAHKW6R79PX
KJYKKKA6M4X7
WK7KY4JYHEPF
P9JAPP364YPX
NFFXYPYTFFW9

Here's how to redeem app store promo codes:

Love this! I've got the free version of pocketvoice and I definitely prefer this. The record button is instant which it isn't on pocketvoice and I like your dual keyboard layout. Coremidi over wifi support would be a big plus. But this is really cool! I like the spinny waveform graphic thing whilst recording!

(I used the code beginning LP9 in case you'd like to remove that from your original post)

I'll carry on playing with this and I'll try to leave some more feedback on it :)

Cool thanks! Yeah, I recently tried some of the other sampling apps and the user interfaces felt too slow and clunky on all of them. I think a quick, simple UI is pretty critical for an app like this.

Some other features I'm considering: more sound settings, multiple sample save-banks, drum pattern editor, visualizer using video-out cable (supported on iPhone 4 and iPad)

The KJY code was used, but I grabbed the WK7 code - this is a blast! I love how the keyboard is optimized for the touch-screen, a lot of other apps try to make them look cool, but leave the black keys hard to hit (and my fingers aren't even that big!), and the quick UI is totally brilliant. Awesome! Giving me yet another reason to pick up a SynthStation

I love the fast UI, and the sound quality has a nice character to it. It would be cool if you could file share the samples.
