Well, at first sight I said… this must be the silliest thing that was ever programmed for the iPhone. Who in his right mind would see how possible this could be. Well, it is possible, and so now the iPhone has made history another time by being the FIRST smartphone that can also be used as a musical instrument.
Smule’s new iPhone app “Ocarina” is making waves in tech world by turning your iPhone into a fully-functional musical wind instrument.
Ocarina is the first true musical instrument created for the iPhone. Both experts and beginners will be amazed by this innovative player. Ocarina is sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, making it even more versatile than the original. Unlike other musical applications, there are no pre-compiled riffs so musicians will find unlimited opportunities for self-expression. Advanced options allow you to choose between diatonic, minor and harmonic scales. Or channel your favorite video game adventurer with Smule’s Zeldarian mode.
How cool is this eh? They even started an online community where you can upload songs made thru Ocarina.
