Earhoof update – Psicada fine-tune their novel virtual instrument

There are lots of what you might call ‘conventional’ virtual instruments available on the App Store; virtual pianos, software recreations of hardware synths, strum-able guitars, for example. However, Earhoof - from developer Psicada - and currently priced at UK£3.99/US$4.99,  is not one of them. I reviewed Earhoof when it was first released in March 2014 and, while it looks like some sort of virtual toaster, what you actually get is a rather intriguing - and very playable - rhythm instrument. … [Read more...]

Earhoof sale – Psicada’s virtual instrument at a bargain price

I posted a review of Psicada's rather interesting Earhoof iOS music app on the blog back in June. This is a fascinating app. With a look that some have described as a 'virtual toaster', Earhoof is actually a way of creating performance-style rhythmic sounds. It excels at electronic pulses and percussive sounds but, with the right sample layers (and you can load your own samples into the app), it can also do melodic arpeggio-style patterns. The interface takes a little getting used to but, … [Read more...]

Earhoof review – Psicada launch a novel virtual instrument for iOS musicians

There are lots of what you might call ‘conventional’ virtual instruments available on the App Store; virtual pianos, software recreations of hardware synths, strum-able guitars, for example.
