What exactly is Magic Fiddle? If you love playing the violin, you will be glad to hear this piece of news. This is an app and works like a virtual violin. Once installed, this app can transform your iPad into an awesome violin, producing electric fiddle music. It’s available on the app store for a few bucks. The credit goes to the CTO Ge Wang and the co-founder Smule. Let’s find out more about this awesome app.
You can only get a better idea of the Magic Fiddle if you install it on your iPad. Alternatively, you can watch the demo videos created by the developer. The videos help you know what electric fiddle music sounds like.
Magic Fiddle works almost the way a real violin or fiddle works. All you need to do is put the thing on your shoulder and pluck the strings with a finger. The other hand will be used as the bow. The process is easy to understand for you if you have already used a string instrument.
Apart from working at Smule, the CTO Ge Wang also serves as an assistant professor at CCRMA at Stanford. Now, this is good news because some popular apps, such as I Am T-Pain, Glee Karaoke, and Ocarina was all developed at CCRMA. The technology behind Magic Fiddle comes from the same research center.
In a statement, Wang stated that the app doesn’t just play pre-recorded notes. You can use your device and the app to create original music as well. With the help of physical modelings, the iPad has been programmed to create unique sounds. Although the sounds don’t have perfect accuracy, they follow a similar model of electric fiddle music.
Making Music tons of Fun
At the end of the day, Magic Fiddle, just like other apps provided by Smule, is tons of fun. Moreover, Magic Fiddle is a solid proof that you can accomplish a lot on a simple device like an iPad or iPhone.
Around two years back, Ocarina was made available for the iPhone. This app was the first “breakthrough” as far as iPhone music apps were concerned. This app allows you to play music just by blowing into the microphone of the device. And this was just the start.
As far as our opinion is concerned, we think that the creator has a similar plan for the iPad as well. Magic Piano is on the list of the most popular game on the iOS but Magic Fiddle can allow you to do much more with this device. With a lot of features, such as multitouch and connecting players from across the globe, the app offers a good deal of value.
Magic Fiddle offers a Songbook that contains 20 songs for free. You can also buy add-on packs. More songs will be added with the passage of time to make the app even better.
So, if you have never given a go to this amazing app, do give it a go today. We bet you won’t regret your decision. The app is just too good as far as electric fiddle music is concerned.
