SynthJacker: Auto Sampler app

    Hey @dendy & @coniferprod is there any sneaky way to make synthjacker record IAA synths? My main use case with NS would be to multisample the synths I can’t load into NS, so this would make the app an instabuy. 😀

    only using external audio interface loopback :) old good cables, connect audio and midi output into input :))

    but i believe virtual MIDI ports and audiobus support is on @coniferprod roadmap, that would be nice solution for IAA synths ..

    Sure would! I don’t have an iPad capable audio interface so I’m going to have to do this the old fashioned way.

    Hello, at the moment not directly -- as @dendy mentioned, there is a loopback method documented by richardyot on the AudioBus forum (thread).

    I would put it like this: I'm not saying that SynthJacker will never get IAA and/or Audiobus support, but right now it seems a little distant -- there's a lot to be done on the external synth and instrument Audio Unit v3 side of things before that, with limited resources.

    Absolutely, I totally get limited resources and personally, I don’t see myself building a large multisample collection, so I’m fine 🙂 thanks for clearing this up, much appreciated!

    When sampling Auv3s the normalise function isn't working for me, I've got the option checked in the prefs but the samples don't end up being normalised.

    checked it.. they are normalized but not to value you set in Synthjacker settings - it looks like they are normalized to lower value.. i set normalize level to 0dB, but they are normalized to something bellow, i guess it's -1dB (judging just by eye in NS audio editor)

    Same here. I let the dev know. It’s really the only thing I’d like to see fixed. The rest is fine.

  • Let this be the thread where I announce the latest version of SynthJacker, the autosampler for iPad musicians, and quite handy for Nanostudio 2 users:

  • nice to see ypu are still improvimg app :+1:

  • nice to see ypu are still improvimg app :+1:

    Sure! It isn't even version 1.0 yet ;) Lots to do.

  • Fantastic news! Keep up the great work.

  • Guys I have an old Korg Trinity Synth that I don’t use anymore but I would love to sample some of my favorite presets. Would you recommend sampling it with effects?

    I also just realized that my Trinity’s digital output is hard coded set at 48 kHz; would SynthJacker be able to auto convert the samples to 44.1 kHz?

    Is, my analog outs are broken.

  • I also just realized that my Trinity’s digital output is hard coded set at 48 kHz; would SynthJacker be able to auto convert the samples to 44.1 kHz?

    How are you planning to connect the Trinity to your iOS device? Do you have an audio interface with a digital input (like Zoom U-44)?

  • My suggestion would sample it without delay / reverb - that's what i usually do, anything i sample (no matter if it is HW or SW) i'm trying to hold on sampled material without delay/reverb so it is better usable in future with various delays / reberb based on context of track where i want to use it ..

    If you have plan used your sampled material in NS2, then there is no problem if samples will be sampled at 48kHz - you don't need take a care about sample rate - NS2 always plays correctly samples no matter which sample rate / bit rate they have (NS supports samples up to 32bit / 96 khz)

  • I was thinking of sending the digi out to my old XP pc which has a digital input soundcard but on my iPad I only have the UCA222. It has analog in and outs and a digital out but no digital in.

  • Thanks Dendi, might have to do this.

    OK, if I got this right, then it is already analog when it hits the UCA222, so the sample rate will be whatever its USB uses by default (maybe it's configurable?). Tell me how it goes; you can examine the results in the Files app. If you copy them over to a Mac, use the afinfo utility. On a PC, maybe Audacity or somesuch.

  • Yeah I forgot that the analong signal recorded doesn’t have anything to do with the 48khz B)

    But it would be so cool to keep it all digitally crisp as the sound of the Trinity at 48khz is amazing 😉
