Easy Strum is:
.... an autoharp for the IPad.
.... one of the easiest musical instruments in the world. From no musical ability you can be playing beautiful arpeggiated chords in under 60 seconds.
.... unique. Strum the piano like a harp, or the glockenspiel like a harp, or any instrument you can think of like a harp (via wireless midi to your D.A.W).
.... quick, you can immediately play chords effortlessly with just one finger (or multiple fingers for Rachmaninov style flourishes :)
.... simple, it has six built in instruments: Piano; Glockenspiel; Harp; Celesta; Sitar and Marimba (no wifi config needed, on board sounds!).
.... a wireless midi controller that can control any Software instrument in your D.A.W if you want more control/sounds (e.g. Garage Band, Logic) for ultimate flexibility and scalability.
.... configurable. Change the note range, chord type for each row, wifi note on times.

Great start, let's give it some legs now
I'd like to thank the developer for this very cool app. With that said, I'd like to request some features. I'd like to see a skin replacement system. I would also appreciate pitch bend implementation, like on the Suzuki Omnichord. It could be triggered by tilting the device, as implemented in Arpeggionome. I've been searching for a Omnichord replacement and this comes real close.
For the price this is great. I love the simplicity
of the design and the small amount of effort
Required to get good results. I'd love to see
an auto chord feature where you could program
your own arpeggios. It could be an on/off butto
For times you don't want it. Then you could play
along with the arp.
