iTrump Embeds Trumpet in iPhone and iPod Touch;
Joins iBone in App Store
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spoonjack, developer of the award winning 'iBone - the Pocket Trombone' today announced the availability of iTrump with Trumpad and the '2-inch Trumpet' for iPhone and iPod Touch. iTrump not only lets users play along with music in their iTunes library, but also with songs from the iTrump Songbook, and even shows them how. iTrump combines an instrument, band, and game into a single application.
"Just like with iBone, our aim is to produce something playable, practicable, and fun," said Tom Scharfeld, Founder of Spoonjack. "With iTrump, we've embedded the Trumpet and the band in the phone so users can make music, have fun, and learn wherever they may be."
iTrump features an interface easy enough for anyone to use:
- Touch the display or blow into the microphone to produce a sound.
- Tap the 'Valve Pads' to set the pitch.
- Raise and lower the bell to change volume.
In spite of its simplicity, iTrump stays remarkably true to the Trumpet. Capable of the Trumpet's standard notated range, users can slur, trill, and add vibrato while producing real Trumpet sound with real Trumpet fingerings.
Not just a solo instrument, iTrump brings the band along too. Those who have developed the skills can accompany the lead or take the solo spot in any song from their iPod library.
Those new to the iTrump and Trumpet may instead select from the iTrump Songbook. The Songbook features a selection of traditional and classical favorites, each with their own unique accompaniment ranging from piano and guitar to full orchestra.
iTrump also shows one how to play. A series of colored blocks fall in-tempo with the song and mark the position and time of the note. Users tap the blocks at the bottom of their fall to hit the right note at the right time. To hear what the song is supposed to sound like, users can activate roboTrump to play it for them.
