Sample your world!
iSample 2.0 is a very powerful sample based music production tool. New with the 2.0 update are an array of features that make iSample a leader among the beat making / pocket studio apps. iSample ships with over 50 MBs of samples created by Mutato Muzika (founded and run by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh) that provide a great starting place to create your own jams, and also to get started with iSample.
Here's what people are saying about iSample 2.0:
"iSample is incredibly deep, containing features found normally on professional audio software costing far more. And itís loads of fun to play with." - Roger Linn (of Roger Linn Designs and MPC inventor)
".... the functionality you've put into the new version is astounding. It took me all of 5 mins to work out how to use it. It's so logical" - Darren Scarce (iSample 1.0 owner)
"Wayoutware has created a an extremely cool app here with ISample. It's not only a very solid sampler for the iphone, but it also elegantly opens up new avenues of creativity which I have really enjoyed exploring. This is the way an iphone music app should be!" - Jordan Rudess (Keyboardist for Dream Theater and an iPhone music expert)

Delay and Reverb effects.
Pattern sequencer with 12 stored patterns.
Song mode that allows you to chain patterns together to create songs.
Ergonomically designed for the iPhone or iPod touch screen.
Even large fingers can play easily.
Unique multi-touch recording makes for very fast and accurate mutiple sample captures and accurate slicing of sounds.
Record lock feature allows you to create longer recordings without touching the pads.
6 sample pads with direct to file recording.
Very fast response to pad touches.
Up to 6 samples can be played at the same time.
Banks of pads can be saved and loaded.
Because of the built in iPhone condenser microhpone the cleanest samples come from a very quiet setting. The louder the room, the poorer the samples. Louder individual sounds in a quiet room create ideal samples.
Since you can actually capture more than one sample at a time, you can use a pad to create one long sample, and then create secondary shorter samples within the larger sample on other pads. This allows you to play the pads in interesting ways.
