I must be misunderstanding. The box looks like it's a VST instrument. I
don;t see the app you are talking about, but it sounds like they have a
stand along VST Host that works with this thing, which is cool.
As for the qualiy, looks to me like both offer the same 8 second
samples, no looping, etc. I'd expect that they are probably pretty
similar in terms of sound.
At $45 Pounds it's pretty much the same price as String Boxes. I'd
probably go the LinuxSampler route since you're likely to be part of a
larger community and get some support, but that's just my point of view.
Good luck whatever you do.
