Since this review not a lot of changes excepted the "Killer skins" in App Purchases.
The last update was released in 2015. So I think that it's not a good idea to buy an App in Purchases at this moment.
(The App is Free)
Also, a lot of soundboard have been released since this time and it's easy to find a better one now as the Novation Launchpad.
Published on 24 Sep 2013
A very very well thought out and very well made Soundboard. 16 Pads. 5 playing modes, and an independent volume for each of them. 16 really great effects which can be controlled with the dedicated Pad. You can assign or not a Pad to the effects section. You can import your own samples from your Music Library (no AudioCopy / Paste. :-() and add your own Artwork. You can also buy Audio Packs from the Store. (The sound quality of these Packs is really great...). iPro-DjSampler also comes with the Audiobus feature which is really cool and another feature that I've left for the end... The Time Stretch! Just awesome because of its processing quality! To conclude, iPro-Dj is amongst the best in its category. A Killer Soundboard for Djs! For "musicians" also, but, there are 2 features that we would really enjoy having in a future update... AudioPaste and the MIDI. A Killer App!
