Learn about the music and movie industry's best kept secret - WIVI™.
The WIVI instruments are real-time playable computer models of real acoustic instruments. But instead of being constructed from woods, metals or plastics, they're based on the analysis and modelling of the sound and physics of the actual instrument.
The professional studio version of WIVI is normally used by artists, composers and producers for everything from radio hits to Hollywood blockbusters. Now you can enjoy the same expressive musical instruments that professionals have had access to for years.
See a demonstration of Wivi Band™ on YouTube, by amazing Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater:
Wivi Band is now also available as a VST/AU/RTAS sequencer plug-in, for use in your professional music productions! For more information please visit our homepage:
Wivi Band runs on the iPhone, using the microphone as a wind controller with full dynamic range, and an easy-to-learn piano fingering with 5-octave range.
The free version of Wivi Band includes a fully playable Trumpet, Trombone and Saxophone instrument!
Hook up Wivi Band to headphones, a Hi-Fi system or multi-track recording device, start a band with your friends or watch your kids take their first steps as rising musicians.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q: The octave keys sometimes let go when I play the keyboard?
A: Make sure your screen is as clean as possible! This makes it easier for the iPhone to detect multi-touches.
Q: Why is the sound low-fi on my 1st generation iPhone?
A: The iPhone 2G (1st generation) automatically locks at 8 kHz sample rate whenever the internal microphone is in use. To get high-quality output on 2G iPhones, you must use a compatible headset with microphone.
Q: How do I use it on my iPod Touch?
A: If your model supports it, you can use a headset or an external microphone. If you don't have a microphone, the Wivi Band instruments will lock at the highest dynamics and are still playable, but without wind controller support.
Q: Why are some keys blacked out?
A: Keys that are blacked out are outside of the natural range of the instrument. Most wind instruments only have a 4-5 octaves range.
Q: I get little response from blowing at the Microphone of my iPhone 4.
A: Make sure that microphone amplification is set to 2x in Wivi Band, on the main screen.

Ratings and Reviews
I liked it but and want to get the full version but I think it costs way too much
Thanks for the effort but...
Sounds like a good idea, but the actual app doesn't work. There are a few points I want to make.
1. Have a wider variety of instruments!!! I do not play trumpet or trombone, but I do play clarinet. So I tried the saxophone.
2. Actually have it make a sound! I tried it, and NOTHING could be heard but me blowing. And yes, I did check the volume.
If you have a good idea, at least make it work!!! I mean, it was a disappointment. Now I am glad this was free. That is why you get one star.
For all of those who don't find noise in their app with the volume on, you have to press a piano key. And here's a tip try blowing away from the microphone to get the most noise possible
