Tapestri for the iPhone touches your sounds.

Well here you have a great example of how touch screens are going to transform musician’s tools. Tapestri allows you to sample a sound and when you touch the waveform it plays it from the location you touched it.

“Tapestri version 1.0 is a sound sample-based synthesizer that uses the iPhone / iPod Touch touch screen interface to crisply control the playback of recorded sample material. With this innovative tool, recorded sounds can be quickly transformed into rap or electronic beats, synthy “clouds” of sound textures, or syncopated, improvised drum beats. Sounds are recorded by pushing the red record button to start and stop the recording process. When a sound is recorded, its waveform displays on the screen, and wherever you touch on the wave, the playback will rapidly jump to that location, allowing you to loop and cut up the sounds instantly!” – huffsound.com

I bought Tapestri and I think it will be a fun way to throw in some quick sounds into my own songs. I like the idea of a few minutes away from the mouse and screen creating a weird unexpected tidbit. Is this the new Casio SK-1?
