What do you get when you combine an ancient video game system, neon lights, a fireworks display, a trombone and your iPhone? The answer is SlideSynth, the first and only instrument app that is intuitive enough for anyone to learn but powerful enough to create professional music.

There are plenty of musical instrument apps out there, but most of them just try to simulate real-world instruments, like a keyboard or ocarina. That's great if you don't mind cramming your fingers onto tiny virtual keys, but if you want to play anything more complex than Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, you're out of luck. And you can just forget about playing chords.

That's why we designed SlideSynth with all of iPhone's advanced capabilities in mind. SlideSynth spaces out the keys and gives you a brilliant graphical display so that you can actually see what you're playing. Even better, SlideSynth takes advantage of iPhone's touch tracking and multi-touch technology to allow you to play any tone or combination of tones that you want. You're no longer limited to the 12 notes of traditional music. Bend notes up or down. Slide between notes. Now you are in complete control of your instrument's sound.


SlideSynth features:
-Classic video game style sound (a must-have for any fan of chiptune)
-Optional arpeggio setting to simulate that vintage arcade effect
-Evenly-spaced keys that are easy to reach
-Touch motion tracking allows you to play ANY tone between A0 and D#6
-Multi-touch lets you play up to four different notes at once
-Cool explosion and fire particle effects help you visualize your music
-Over 20 unique instrument settings
-Optional note labels to help you find your place

This isn't your ordinary music app.
