Finally one that acts something like a violin. I've tried a lot of other virtual violin's on here with a simple tune I tried to copy, & this came closest in note sustain & sound quality. (It also understood a hammer-on which a lot don't). Obviously there's lots of things it can't replicate (a bow to control certain notes would've been nice) but is impressive.
It's fine for remembering melodies, although I miss 2 things It's a great app, really useful for violinists that want to remember melodies "on the go". Nevertheless, there are 2 major features missing: 1. There should be a bigger tablet mode so we can play the higher notes in the strings. Right now in tablet mode/view, the fingerboard is still way too short to play any famous piece. So, please, add a new larger view of the violin, zoomed out to play higher notes. 2. The open string note is confusing, it looks like another note. The design should be different.
Worst game ever Been playing violin since 2nd grade, And this doesn't work, sound, or does anything like a real violin. And the notes only go to 4 not 6. And most of the note are too high or low. So I wish I could give 0 stars
Brilliant Erin Ramay--I don't know if you'll see this, but hit the menu button. This app includes viola, violin, cello, and bass. Hope this helps. Multi touch on the same string would be great, to allow for tapping and sliding. Dev, if you get bored, feel free to make a hammered dulcimer app, as you seem to be the only one who can do these things correctly. I only gave five stars because that's all the system would allow me to.
Nice, could use some tweaks. People are ragging on this free app hard, and honestly, it's a pretty great app! It's nice for playing with song ideas when the violin isn't around, simple practice, and sound comparison when actually playing. There is a few things I would like to see tweaked, or options as tweaks. 1. Set width in phone mode (note 4 makes it wider than a real violin), 2. Play open string with thumb at bottom (sound strings in general with thumb at bottom) rather than open at the very top.
Amazing. Love the app, its sound is great to make my compositions i am greatful for such an app, is it possible to make the neck a little longer? I would like to have more tones to work with in each instrument, transposing the music is a real pain. Thanks again! Keep up the great work!
