TUAW: "...pretty easy to strum out a few of your favorite popular songs this weekend"

OMGuitar comes from the makers of Touch DJ! It is a synth with unique interface and new-generation sound hybrid engine that allows anyone to produce realistic synth guitar sounds.

There are 6 guitar types to choose from (more in updates), both electric and classic.

OMGuitar is very playable and truly expressive. It responds to the speed of your guitar strumming, catching the emotion of your melody. The quality of the guitar synth sound is so high that it can easily be used in studio work as a quick method to produce realistic rhythm and arpeggio guitar tracks. You can also engage the autoplay functionality with lots of built-in rhythms!

True guitar simulation on the touch-screen device is now possible thanks to the advanced artificial intelligence algorithm that analyzes your style of playing and alters the sound accordingly.

There is a dedicated string-picking/arpeggio interface, represented as a column of 6 buttons, which can easily be played together with the string strumming interface. Note bend effect is achieved by swiping the button area.

The glowing neon strings themselves respond to the speed of strumming and the distance between themselves and the initial screen tap. The player is supposed to strum the guitar with one finger and place the second finger on the guitar at any time for muting all the strings (this option can be turned off in the settingsmenu). With such approach, many common guitar playing techniques can be easily accomplished.

You can choose from about 300 chords to play 99% of the songs ever written. The songs are conveniently saved as chord sets and can be loaded with a single tap.

Some of the world's best and most expensive guitar models have been sampled with great precision and act as the source for the synthesis engine. There are 6 completely different playable guitars, 3 acoustic and 3 electric. The tone can be further shaped with the 3-band equalizer.

OMGuitar has 10 built-in effects with over 50 presets: 2 types of Distortion, Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Wah-wah, Vowel filter, Compressor, Tremolo.

OMGuitar now supports external fretboard running in iPhone via the free Amidio Remote app (just like the Futulele).

Back from the dead.

OMGuitar came out with high expectations, and for me much excitement. Then dead silence for a long time. That left me feeling angry for having paid the launch price based on Amidio setting expectations for new content, and improvements "soon". Those just didn't come, until now. Better late than never.
This is a uniquely designed guitar simulation, with a pretty cool interface and sound. Nothing replaces the real thing, but this comes pretty close and is at least a competent substitute for situations where a real guitar isn't an option.
I can't explain it but my first 2 WiFi downloads came with what I thought were app bugs. Not so. I deleted and then re downloaded while connected to my computer with iTunes and everything was fine. Sounds and plays great! With Audiobus support added, OMGuitar becomes even more usable than ever. Just the kind of update to make me happy and forgive the long wait. Worth all of the $5.

This is an awsome app- best guitar on the ipad!

Between the iphone and the ipad I have at least 10 guitar apps. Not the light, but the full versions. I have been looking for something that would allow me to take a few of musical ideas and work out the chord progressions while I am on the road or at lunch while at work. This IS that app. It is a guitar program that sounds like an actual guitar. I love the interface and the ability to play any of the chords on the fly. Most programs make you select a half dozen chords and the finger picking or strumming is not nearly as good as it is here on the OMGuitar. I collect guitars and have been playing for over 25 years, this will never replace any of my real guitars but it sure does an incredible job of helping me write music. As far as the price is concerned I think that it is a steal I would have paid double for this app. Keep up the good work!
