Absolutely, Jesse I just

<t>Absolutely, Jesse <br/> <br/> I just started playing around with coo2, which isn't nearly as sophisticated as thumbjam, but it can use sound fonts in sf2 format. That means hundreds on real good quality sounds available instantly, including partially looped samples, which are so hard to do right ...

Ideas from MorphWiz

<t>Looking at the recently released MorphWiz, I think thumbjam could use some of its features in the next release. For instance:<br/> <br/> 1. Ability to do finger-vibrato by shaking the finger on the note. Better than shaking the whole iPad, if that's what you're using.<br/> <br/> 2. Morph one patc...

Three looped instruments: clarinet, oboe, and voice ooh

These are all from the same source: the PC51 soundfont, which you can find on the internet, re-sampled to 44.1 kHz and tweaked. It's hard to find the right loop points from within thumbjam, so these have been looped in Wavelab. Enjoy! http://forum.thumbjam.com/images/migrated/Clarinet.zip http://for...

I've re-sampled the instrument to 44.1 kHz, and now it sounds slightly different, but it should install much more easily. If Jesse doesn't put it up you can always upload it manually. Tested.Image

Thanks!

It's always nice to get credit. You can call it "Sitar"

I'm working on a clarinet, oboe, vibraphone, and a set of voice drums where I will try to write the .float files as you say.

Sitar

Here you go, a sitar! Just rename the "picture" below to Sitar.zip I don't know much about Indian music, so I set the scale to match the Tampura that you can download in-app (more or less). Let me know if the scale should be different. Sounds extracted from a free Hammersound soundfont. More coming....

Is "thumbjam" the best name?

<r>I love the app, but I can't stop thinking that the name "thumbjam" sounds like something else. There's another app named "sound fields" that is a lot more like jamming with your thumb, but it doesn't come close to the real thumbjam in capability.<br/> <br/> I believe this app is destined for grea...

<t>One more idea.<br/> <br/> I saw elsewhere on the forum that people want the ability to record some sort of midi events. If you get down to it, you can use that ability to arpeggiate the chords. You could have, say, two different arpeggios available by switching them with an additional button on t...

Chord ergonomics

<t>Jesse,<br/> <br/> First off . . . Wow!<br/> <br/> Now, on the issue of chords, I've done a little ergonomic study and I think you could implement it this way for simple chords so they are playable on the fly. It's a bit of a modification on the "Casio chord" method of Casio keyboards. <br/> <br/>...
