App DescriptionA virtual Wash Tub Bass.
Hit the Top 10 music app ranking in Makedonija, Moldova, Slovenia!
Modify pitch by tilting, pluck and dampen the string via your finger. Includes many fret options to play in tune, or go free-form fretless!
Check out the new 8va switch which takes it up an octave! Now you have a WashTubTreble; or something.
Works fine on iPad too, especially at 2x display mode. Just get it on iTunes on your computer, then sync your iPad to iTunes and the app will load right up.
Be sure to use headphones or an external speaker/amp...because those little phone speakers can't kick out the bass so well. Set the treble higher in the app to hear without extern speakers.
If you are running this on an iPod, be sure to have the headphones or speakers plugged in before launching the app or it will not launch, as there is no audio output for the sound to go.
Only the "string" is displayed on the app. You tilt the device to stretch or unstretch the string, then you pluck the string to make the tone. Touching the screen stops the tone. By tilting the device thru different angles before you pluck, you can play about an octave range of tones.
The Knobs screen which is accessed by the Knobs button allows you set the particular pitches played. Bass and treble and sustain (how long the tone lingers) can be set here too. The Frets control determines which particular pitches are latched onto. Typically about a 15 to 20 degree change in tilt of the phone will change the note one step of the the scale you have set (major or minor, chromatic etc) in the Frets setting. You can also go "fretless" and play free form pitches, but that is fairly difficult. The wood setting changes how much the string buzzes when you stop the tone.
For best results, you will need to use headphones or an external speaker for this app, and we suggest turning down the treble or turning down the high frequency ranges if you have an equalizer involved.
