Blog . Orphion
Orphion is a fantastic iPad instrument by Bastus Trump that mixes string and percussive sounds with a drumpad-esque layout. Users can choose the Five, 3rds Matrix, Harmonic Minor, or Pentawheel pad layout, and then transpose the available notes into different keys. Different articulations, from hard plucking to soft tones, can be achieved by the pressure of your fingertips, as well as a vibrato by quickly swiping back and fourth. Orphion has MIDI support – utilizing Audibus, synch a synthesizer application and start mixing audio tracks! Available for $4.99 in the iTunes Store, Orphion is worth the price – with recording capabilities, the musical possibilities are truly endless.
