Developer Chris Wolfe has introduced YUMI:synth, described as “the worlds first realistic sounding bowed string simulator for iOS”.


  • All sound generation is synthesized, no samples are used.
  • You can play two strings at once (at different locations on the scale) and bow manually or automatically.
  • A scale system allows you to quickly define all the playable notes.
  • Two stereo effect units: ping-pong delay and reverb.
  • Save/load presets, and backup your presets via iTunes.
  • Interactive help system.
