Wivi Band™ Free now features the Trumpet from Wivi Band!
Learn about the music and movie industry's best kept secret - WIVI™.
The WIVI instruments are real-time playable computer models of real acoustic instruments. But instead of being constructed from woods, metals or plastics, they're based on the analysis and modelling of the sound and physics of the actual instrument.
The professional studio version of WIVI is normally used by artists, composers and producers for everything from radio hits to Hollywood blockbusters. Now you can enjoy the same expressive musical instruments that professionals have had access to for years.
See a demonstration of Wivi Band™ on YouTube, by amazing Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater:
Wivi Band runs on the iPhone, using the microphone as a wind controller with full dynamic range, and an easy-to-learn piano fingering with 5-octave range.
The free version of Wivi Band includes a fully playable Trumpet instrument!
Hook up Wivi Band to headphones, a Hi-Fi system or multi-track recording device, start a band with your friends or watch your kids take their first steps as rising musicians.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q: The octave keys sometimes let go when I play the keyboard?
A: Make sure your screen is as clean as possible! This makes it easier for the iPhone to detect multi-touches.
Q: Why is the sound low-fi on my 1st generation iPhone?
A: The iPhone 2G (1st generation) automatically locks at 8 kHz sample rate whenever the internal microphone is in use. To get high-quality output on 2G iPhones, you must use a compatible headset with microphone.
Q: How do I use it on my iPod Touch?
A: If your model supports it, you can use a headset or an external microphone. If you don't have a microphone, the Wivi Band instruments will lock at the highest dynamics and are still playable, but without wind controller support.
Q: Why are some keys blacked out?
A: Keys that are blacked out are outside of the natural range of the instrument. Most wind instruments only have a 4-5 octaves range.
Better support across different OSs, fixed the "no sound" bug some people experience when upgrading from an earlier version, without deleting the old version first.
