iTrump - '2-inch Trumpet' with Trumpad

By Spoonjack, LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

The Trumpet for your iPhone or iPod Touch. Play it anywhere. Practice and learn scales and songs. Jam along with anything in your iPod. Or play along with a song in the Songbook and let it show you how. It's useful to students and playable by anyone. (*see below for details about the interface)

It's easy:
1. Touch or Blow to make a sound
2. Tap the 'valve pads' to set the pitch
3. Raise and lower the bell for volume.

And it's capable:
Cover the Trumpet's standard notated range -- slur up and down, trill, and even bend notes and add vibrato. It's the closest you'll get to the real thing.

No clue about the real thing? Pick a tune from the Songbook, and let it show you the way as you play along with the band accompaniment. Just tap the colored blocks at the bottom of their fall to hit the right note at the right time.

iTrump comes free with seven songs:
- Theme from 2001: Also sprach Zarathustra with orchestra
- Aura Lee with piano
- Air (on a G string) with guitar
- Greensleeves with accordian
- Guantanmera with bass, bongos, guitar and drums
- Ride of the Valkyries with orchestra
- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with piano

Additional songs can be purchased and downloaded. Some of these include:
- Sloop John B with Rhythm
- Man of Constant Sorrow with Banjo
- Carol of the Bells with Brass
- First Noel with Ochestra
- O Silent Night with Strings
- O Little Town of Bethlehem with Organ
and more! With more to come.

Whether you play Trumpet and need something more portable, or you've never touched one but want to learn, iTrump.

ABOUT THE INTERFACE
iTrump is modeled after the real Trumpet and is designed to allow play purely by touch with maxmium agility and minimum coordination between left and right hand.

There's an 'open pad' for left thumb, and three 'valve pads' which correspond to trumpet valves 1, 2, and 3 and drop 2, 1, and 3 half-steps_ respectively. The vertical divisions are based on the harmonic series and what you would play if you slurred continuously all the way up or down for a given valve combination. For open, this would be C G C E G (Bb) C, etc. (The Bb partial is currently left out).

Customer Reviews

Left me wanting

ITrump is cute, and is probably perfect for iPhone enthusiasts, but it just doesn't fill the gap for an old horn player like me.

After losing my chops forever to head & neck cancer, I was hoping for an experience that closer mimicked playing trumpet more than this. I DO like the "no blow" feature, as that's an issue for me.

While I understand that substitutes for open fingering & octave changes are necessary for an electronic horn, iTrump's GUI just feels wrong to me. Perhaps a set of 3 stationary valves & buttons to accommodate the above requirements would make it more realistic.

I don't think that I wasted my money. It's still a fun app - just not real enough for my needs.

Closest you can get to real thing

I am a trombone player, and found iBone and it came in handy. Now I found out about iTrump, but before I found it I was thinking if it would even be possible to make a trumpet app, and spoonjack made it possible! This app taught me the chromatic scale, and the basics of a trumpet. Thanks spoonjack!

Fantastic

Extremely well made and well designed- it's surprisingly playable, and also serves as a great illustration of trumpet fingerings over the harmonic series. Lots of fun!
