This is the app for guitar, bass, and strings players who need realistic woodwind instrument sounds for recording or live performance.

iFretless responds naturally to the the finger movements strings players use for vibrato and sliding between pitches. Using those techniques, the app gives a more believable, natural imitation of woodwind sounds than traditional keyboard based synth interfaces.

It also supports midi input from EWI MIDI controller devices and keyboard MIDI controllers.

1. Tenor Sax
2. Alto Sax
3. Bari Sax
4. Soprano sax
5. Clarinet
6. Bass Clarinet
7. Synth lead

1) Dynamic volume control based on touch force. (Yes, this really does work.)
2) MIDI (in and out)
3) Inter-app audio connects with GarageBand, Beatmaker 2, Cubasis, Auria, and other recording apps.

5) Audio copy

* We recommend at least iPad 3, iPad mini with retina display, or iPhone 5.

** iPad 2 and 1st gen iPad mini users will experience significantly better performance if they do not update their device to iOS 8.

Ratings and Reviews

So good


I’ve been using this app almost everyday for weeks now to create super lush drones on my iPhone (with added effects via Audiobus 3.0). The tones are so good and easy for a non-skilled musician to play around with. Worth every penny!

Getting better


After living with this app for a week,I must in all fairness revise my review. The alto is the better sounding instrument. First impression was with the tenor and that needs more work to smooth the envelope and possibly a filter to build a less boxy sound. It is a fun app a little pricey but overall I will stay tuned for updates . Sorry for being irritated out of the box but it will work

IFretless Sax doesn't work on iOS 9


This program is bugged. I have iFretless Brass and that works fine. It is actually one of the better Brass modeling synths I've found. The iFretless Sax doesn't fill the entire screen and it crashes instantly when going from 8va to loco. I will give the Brass version 4 stars, but until the Sax is fixed, save your money.
