Review by MoeAlotaibi

A must-have for Music producers - I intially was looking for light audio player that could run with my DAW without having CPU issues. Instead I found this app. I tried the demo for a few days and was a great sample manager. PROS: - All your samples in one place. - Automtically tagged and organized by company. - Easy to find any sample very quick. - You can favorite any sample. CONS: it is missing many basic functions like - Sort by time, size, and etc - You cant rearrange the columns in the sample list. - You cant play any audio files from finder. - It takes up so much of real memory. To Developer: The app has so much potential to be great however you need to look at what the market is looking for. Most mac-based music producers have no access to a simple audio player with a waveform and file management features like yours. And I find your app's placement is somehow odd. in other words, all producers have DAW and an audio player to play thier samples. Your app is in between those two because you are not replacing the audio player. To run the DAW, your app, and an audio player simultaneously the load on memory, and cpu would be a disaster. You should focus on your primary features like auto tagging, your sorting system and leave the things that the DAW is capable of doing like using audio units and plugins. And If your app was just about the auto tagging I would still have purchased it because no one was offering it. Your app is unique and you clearly have a great vision. I wish you the best.
