Virtual Ocarina for iPhone : breath controller

Posted: November 10, 2008 in Audio

Smule presents Ocarina, a virtual instrument for iPhone that takes back the breath controller principle, this time using the included devices’s mic. The virtual instrument openings are easily covered by fingers (but be aware not to drop the iPhone), and vibrato (intensity and frequency) is managed by tilting the device. We can also modify the scale (diatonic, minor and harmonic). Finally a globe allows to discover and listen to other iPhone Ocarina players, and rate their performance. Some listed sites provides quick tutorials.
We can watch videos, and the software is priced 0,99$ at the AppStore.
