in Music (E)

[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - You can now create and record your own orchestral music on the iPhone, layer by layer, using the instruments and built-in recording features of WI Orchestra (TM). Five instruments are included for free (Violins, Trumpet, Flute, Timpani and Tenor Saxophone) and the app can be extended to a full orchestra via in-app-purchase, at $2.99 per section: Strings, Percussion, Brass, Woodwinds, Saxophones.

WI Orchestra features a velocity sensitive keyboard (requires iOS 4.0 or higher) allowing you to play different dynamics by touching the keyboard harder of softer. The simplest way to use WI Orchestra is to choose one of the dynamics presets (pp, p, mp, mf, f or ff) and play only using the keyboard.

You can work on as many as 98 different projects at a time, and export your songs to your computer, as *.wav files, via the "Apps" tab in iTunes (requires iOS 4.0 or higher). iOS devices with less than 256 MB RAM are capable of 1 minute length projects (iPhone 3GS and earlier) while iPhone 4 and iPads are capable of 5 minute length projects.

For those who are unfamiliar with orchestral music, each instrument in WI Orchestra comes with a picture of the instrument and a story describing its history in music. For the brave users, the microphone can also be used as a breath controller!

When starting WI Orchestra for the first time, press the play button to listen to the included demo song, which was made with the WI Orchestra app in only a few hours. WI Orchestra is a universal iOS app, with a native full-screen iPad version and beautiful high-resolution graphics on iPhone 4 retina displays.
