Periscope Audio Lab

SpaceSampler is a smart audio convolution application that lets you record, apply filters from real acoustic spaces and equipment, and then share with anyone.

Demo Video:


"...doing for audio what apps such as CameraBag and Instagram do for photos." - iLounge

"Convolution technology comes to iOS with an app that enables you to record, apply filters (Impulse Responses), set the mix and then share the resulting sound. The IRs come from real gear and acoustic spaces, and you can export via email Audio Copy, Dropbox and SoundCloud." - Music Radar

"Even for an audio newbie such as myself, it’s exceptionally easy to create some great results with SpaceSampler." - 148apps


Record, paste or import audio, select between filters, EQ, set the mix, and then share. The high quality filters, or Impulse Responses (IRs), are captured from real gear and acoustic spaces, creating realistic, unusual or far-out effects for any type of audio source.
