miniMusic Releases Pianofly For iPhone & Touch
miniMusic has released Pianofly, a music synthesizer and piano keyboard application for Apple’s iPhone platform. Pianofly pairs a live-scrolling, multi-touch keyboard with a FM synthesizer and a concise interface allowing anyone to create and edit instrument sounds easily.
The first feature you notice in Pianofly is the scrolling keyboard. Pianofly’s keyboard moves with you, scrolling as you play; let your fingers move up and down the full 88 key piano. Eight pages full of customizable instrument icons denote the sound presets. Just tap one and start playing. Want to design your own instrument sound? Simply, double tap on an icon and the editor is revealed. You actually see the waves and adjust their lengths to set frequencies and change waveforms. Rewire the nodes for modulation. Double tap on a node and edit its ADSR envelope for amplitude changes: give it a hard, fast attack or fade it in slowly, rising gently on the breeze. Then, use any photo or image to make the perfect icon for your new instrument. Pianofly can create a nice variety of sounds. You can play them alone, or jam with a song from your music library.
Planned improvements include multi-track recording and additional wave types and effects like reverb or flange to design even more elaborate sounds.
miniMusic’s Pianofly is available now from the Apple App Store at an introductory price of only $1.99. After the introductory period, the normal price will be boosted to $2.99. More information on miniMusic Pianofly.
