Play instruments with your voice in real time! Voice Band introduces a revolutionary new way to make music - with only your voice. Featured on G4TV’s Attack of the Show (with Olivia Munn).

* Imagine creating an entire song with only your voice. *

Just sing into your phone and hear Voice Band transform your voice into an instrument in real time. Voice Band doesn't simply alter your voice to sound like an instrument, it actually plays a real sampled instrument which follows what you sing. Want to jam to a guitar solo with your favorite band? Voice Band lets you play along with your ipod library, too.

Voice Band features a recorder which lets you build a song, one instrument at a time. Auto pitch mode helps you stay on key, and if you're a musician, you'll appreciate the adjustable scale and metronome. Voice Band also includes a built-in effects processor with distortion, reverb, and delay.

Whether you’re a musician looking to instantly capture an arrangement idea, or a music fan looking to make your own music for the first time, Voice Band will inspire and challenge you.

Disappointed

Bought this after recommendation via a friend. The idea is so good, however the App continually freezes and crashes. There are no instructions on how when you have finished a song, to start a new track - it needs a "start new track" button. I got really frustrated and lost recordings because I deleted the App and then opened to see if that would clear the crashing. Sadly therefore unusable - as it is a paid for App they need to sort this URGENTLY.

Sheet genius!

This app is sheer genius. I have no musical skills or talents at all so my results have been variable to say the least but I cannot tell you the fun I've had with this app - it is absolutely brilliant just making up little tunes and singing along to songs you already know well. My only request for more features would be to add a couple more instruments and also to allow you to create a guide track that you can later delete seperately from your main track. But all in all this app is the best £1.79 I've spent in a long long while - joyus!

revolutionary app

This is a really amazing app that is great fun and really encourages people to use their voices to make music. Suggestions for future releases: more instruments, especially acoustic guitar, piano (any chance of it playing chords?) as the power chords guitar is a bit limiting and pushes you into certain styles of music. A bit more info in the help section would save newbies the bother of going to help forums. Well done to the producers of this amazing piece of technology.
