Synthtopia posts on a new iPad app that turns your device into a sampling workstation. Features include:

  • 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 control.
  • Pitch-shifting preserves time and gives you 2 full octaves from one sample; without chipmunking.
  • Record your own samples, or import wav & mp3 files using iTunes.
  • Trigger pads for tapping-in patterns or stand-alone performance.
  • 4 real-time DSP FX: compressor, bit crusher, resonant cutoff, and phaser.
  • Shuffle control for syncopation.
  • Over 100 samples included to get you started.
  • Audio Copy & Paste to share with other apps.
  • Upload your mixdowns to SoundCloud to collaborate & share.
  • Import new samples using iTunes.

Good to see audio copy in there too. No ideas on price as yet, but as I know more I’ll post details.
