Your new favorite musical instrument - The iPhone

Ocarina is a beautifully designed app with a lot of great features.

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. (http://ocarina.smule.com/)


It's a lot of fun to play, and after a while you forget that you have a telephone in your hands.
It just feels so natural, and the sound is so crisp.

Well yes, playing the Ocarina is great, the forum on the Smule website is fantastic. There are plenty of users with a lot of songs tabbed out (think guitar tabs...except for the ocarina). It's VERY easy to pickup.

Really the best part of the app is the Globe view. Hearing other people play around the world is just incredible.


Also, like most Smule products, Ocarina is a social application. Tap on the globe icon and you will see and hear other Ocarina players throughout the world. The globe view will highlight the source of the music. Rate your favorite performances so that others may benefit from your judgment. Name your Ocarina if you want listeners around the world to identify your performances. With this robust application beautiful music is created, appreciated and shared.


This is a great app, and at $.99 really worth it.

Here is a quick video from the Smule website:
