Very Cool

Simple and quite unique in character. Very musical! This is why I love iPad so much. Because of apps like this, the versatility of an iPad really shine! Half the time I just playing the thing, Thanks.
Only bad thing so far is the the thing stops playing audio once I close my iPad and has to be restarted even though I have sleep disabled? A minor thing though but should be fixed.

A true original musical instrument and experience!

I have been a fan of Orphion since it’s arrival. A number of years ago, I was interested in running my iPad through the volume pedal and into an amplifier, so I could create volume swells. At the time there was no mono option, Which made this technique that is promising. I reached out to the developer, and asked about a feature he promptly responded. Said it was a good idea. And then, life happens, and things fall to the side. FlashForward, last week, after years of working with an iPad 3, I got a new pro.I remember this app, download it, and much to my surprise and glee, was a mono option. Bravo!

Love using this app. It brings a new and fresh idea to my tracks when producing. I wish more additional sounds would be added.
