$.99 iPhone Trumpet App

Musicofx has released a new iPhone app (App Store link) that turns your iPhone into a virtual trumpet.

There are demos at the Musicofx site – and it doesn’t sound convincingly like a trumpet – but it does sound like a useful virtual instrument.

Trumpet also offers additive synthesis and can be used as a wireless MIDI controller.

TRUMPET is a performance musical instrument for your iPhone. It plays, sounds, and operates like a real trumpet.

TRUMPET’s controls are based upon the principles of a real trumpet. You can adjust this control to include breath, touch, and even tilt control! It’s a great way to learn how a trumpet works, and it’s expressive enough to be a real instrument for proficient musicians.

TRUMPET includes a unique sound engine that uses sound samples of real instruments — including a trumpet, a muted trumpet, and a flugelhorn. TRUMPET also features the Visual Synth. Create your own sounds with our additive synthesizer, adding reverb, filters, and sculpting the overtones to explore the soundscape.

Control your music studio with TRUMPET — full MIDI control is included via the musicofx midi tool [PC *and* Mac], free with TRUMPET! Control GarageBand, Reason, or Logic wirelessly — a new performance MIDI controller!

Finally, you can record and share your TRUMPET performances. Upload, download, vote — you can even listen to them in your browser, embed them in your blog, or send them to Mom in an email.
