We at idvance LLC are proud to introduce version 2.1 of iTrumpet. iTrumpet is for people who play "real world" trumpets, not for the casual gamer:

A. iTrumpet does not require you to blow into the iPhone microphone! You blow a real trumpet using a range of mouth positions. We have deliberately chosen not to require confusing alternate behavior for your lips and tongue - we see blowing into the iPhone microphone as an awkward gimmick, not as a practical design point.
B. iTrumpet does not require contrary fingering! You play iTrumpet like a real trumpet, using your right fingers to press keys. To control embouchure, and to get open notes, you use your left thumb - which is idle when playing a real trumpet.
C. iTrumpet simulates a B flat (transposing) trumpet with a full three octave range - and with respectable sound quality for a simulator.

We designed and tested iTrumpet with experienced trumpet players. We believe that if you are a student or a professional musician, you will find our solution most compatible with how you play your real world instrument. If you are in a marching band or a jazz ensemble, give iTrumpet a try. Then email us at, and let us know what we can do next to make it even less of a crude alternative when your primary instrument isn't handy...

What's New in Version 2.1

Version 2.1 of iTrumpet delivers the following changes:
- A reviewer identifying himself as Tiberius Rautha suggested that in defining 8 embouchures, we had associated most open notes with the succeeding embouchure when we should have associated each with the preceding embouchure - thinking this through, we realized he was right and we have changed embouchure settings accordingly.
- You can now switch between open notes and other notes much better. We think this addresses various other reviewers' critiques.

After you are comfortable with this latest release, please let us know what improvements to consider for the next release, through writing a review, or better yet, by communicating more fully with us back and forth through
