  • Absolutely phenomenal

    By Nobody 789
    Never have my ears heard such a realistic soft synth. This rivals desktop string sample libraries in sound quality and I have never would have expected this out of the iPad. Maybe some ears can tell it apart from the real thing but mine can't. Definitely gonna use this for future compositions.
  • Outstanding

    By ArtSmartx
    You can tell when developers put some love into an app. I'm no musician, but this app blew my mind. So impressive!
  • Quite realistic

    By Jandro Kirkish
    This is a great app. The modeled sound is very realistic, and the interface is quite expressive. The developer has some great ideas for future improvements, and is very receptive to suggestions, so this great app will only get greater!
  • The virtual cello I've been waiting for

    By Steve Bryson
    This is an amazing instrument! The playing is intuitive and very expressive. The interface is beautifully thought out and the sound quality is fantastic. Like the real thing, it will take some practice to learn to hold it properly and play it well, but probably less practice than the real thing. This is a bargain at this price.
  • Got me out of a creative rut

    By Shea the Man
    I got this on impulse after seeing it on synthtipia. I'm honestly blown away. I spent all night last night playing it, and all day this morning recording it through some effects (reverb with some modulation). It does everything you can think of, and sounds amazingly real. This was done extremely well. Besides a graphic interface that isn't to my taste, this app is perfect.
  • Wow!

    By Chinchilla Wafers
    Really neat app, thank you!! The physical modeling aspect is intriguing too, how the sound changes based on how close to the bridge you bow, or how fast.
