Ratings and Reviews

Only simulator for a fascinating instrument


App is great in concept and allows one to experience the harpejji's fretboard layout (at life size) and an approximation of the sound, with handy scale and chord overlays for learning one's way around and options for reverb and pitch bending.
In active development as of early 2016; some remaining rough edges: sound is prone to clicks and pops, at least on the older devices I've used it on, and notes in quick runs tend to drop or fuzz out; bass notes are very quiet in relation to the rest; scroll bars are easy to hit while holding a note, moving the view to an unexpected area of the fretboard; text is pixelated; and note overlays show through controls oddly.
All that said, it's an excellent resource for learning about a unique instrument, and although I don't find it playable in a performance sense, I've spent hours practicing on it and expect to continue.
Feature suggestions: additional and/or configurable scales; option to turn off scroll bars; in-app volume control for the bass strings.

I like it, but ...

I’m grateful for this app, as it gives me the opportunity to explore the Harpejji. I like the layout of the user interface with its many value added features. But there is room for improvement in sound quality. There are many pops and hisses on my iPad 3. The bass notes have better fidelity, but the higher notes often don’t sound like strings at all, they have a shrill synthesizer tone.

Great instrument, ok emulation


I really was excited about this emulation, because I love natural stringed instruments like this. The problem is its responsiveness and playability. There's not much of it. They need to make the response much more sensitive. Also there's a very slight lag from when you hit the fret to when the sample starts. This lag seems to very slightly vary, so playing any thing fast and complex becomes increasingly sloppy. If they could fix this, and add more layers of samples at different velocities, it would maybe start to play like an instrument. I sincerely hope they do because it could turn into a great little software instrument.
