The iPhone and iPod Touch have been mega sellers from Apple the last couple years, and the App Store available on these two devices has opened up a large marketplace for downloadable software on the two entertainment devices. Now, miniMusic hopes to get into that market with the release of the Pianofly app.
Pianofly is a live scrolling, multi-touch keyboard app for the iPhone and iPod Touch that integrates a FM synthesizer, allowing users to make and edit instrument sounds. The Pianofly keyboard makes use of touch commands and scrolls with the users as they play, and features 88 keys. The app is designed from the ground up for the unique touch screen capabilities of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Eight pages of customizable instrument icons are also featured with the app, and double tapping on any icon will bring up an editor that allows for the design of instrument timbre. Frequencies, waveforms, and amplitude changes can all be performed at the snap (or stroke, in this case) of a finger.
The Pianofly application has made it past Apple's system and is currently available in the App Store for $1.99. However, this price is limited time only, so move fast before miniMusic lifts the price to $2.99 or above.
