This app is nothing short of Genius. The manipulation of grains of sound is immediate, fluid, tactile and intuitive. It is addictive from the get go and the textures and moods you can squeeze out of even a few samples are almost infinite. Getting sounds in and out is a breeze since the update. Recording of parameter automisation and filters adds a whole new level and incredible as a granular effect on a live input. Amazing.

This is the best, most inspired, most usefully creative utilization of the unique capabilities of the iPad's touch interface I have ever seen. If you are at all interested in granular processing of sound, you need to try this app. A+

It's so very close, when it works its amazing the problem is that most of the time it doesn't. Loading samples is hell and if you manage to load something it's hard to tell what exactly it is That said when it works its paralyzingly awesome. It also needs to play better with other programs, seriously who runs just one program at a time

A steal at any price, and a touchscreen legend. Borderlands was the first app - and still the most unique IMO - that really took the touchscreen concept and its capabilities and transformed the iPad into an actual musical instrument. I jumped on board v1.0 in 2012 and never looked back. A bit of history - in 2012 the very new community of iPad musicians totally fell for this app, and when it became apparent that real life had slowed the apps development after its initial release, the community of Borderlands users not only maintained their enthusiasm but also continued to grow the user base despite the "advanced beta" characteristics of v1.0. It reached legendary status as the oldest app in the App Store that you absolutely could not do without, and every iOS update would be quickly followed by a chorus of "yeah OK but does Borderlands still work on it?" When the update dropped years later, minds were blown everywhere. As the greatest iOS app ever to be rescued from history by its own developer, even an Alchemy iOS update would not touch this - as great a synth as it is, Borderlands was pioneering AND legendary AND is still the most unique instrument on a touchscreen. Bar none.

Truly great interface, simple and elegant. The sounds it produces are out of this world. Giving this 4 stars and not 5 because it really does need a better way to import sounds. iTunes playlist just isn't doing it for me... And I'd like a little more memory to play around with, I've got a lot of long samples I want to load up at one time and usually the app runs out of memory after loading only a few of them. Great app, on its way to being perfect if we can move away from itunes playlisting and get an update with a native import feature and more available memory. Throw in a simple delay and reverb and you'll make a lot of users very happy.

All these configurable parameters should be associated with a CC mapping. Will update my rating when midi is implemented. Would also be nice to map midi controller note on/off in place of finger tap with ability to give each node specific note on trigger. I.e. [node1:g, node2:c#, node3:e]
