Improvising With The iHolophone

May 3, 2010

I’m in love with Amidio‘s new iPhone app, iHolophone. You play this virtual instrument by dragging your thumbs around two circular controllers that resemble an analog cassette and video game virtual controllers or life counters. You can tap for short sounds or leave your thumb on for sustain. It feels totally fresh, a new way of making music. The app comes with a limited sequencer, hundreds of samples, 160 patterns, etc. Although the accompanying beds are OK, the app really comes to life when you jam with the two controllers. With iHolophone, Amidio, makers of Noise.io and JR Hexatone, confirms its place amongst the leaders in touch-screen music apps.

You can read a good review of iHolophone on the excellent promusicapps site.
