New Virtual Instrument For iPad, Earhoof

earhoof-ipad-instrumentDeveloper Psicada has introduced Earhoof, described as ‘a futuristic virtual instrument which turns your iPad into a rhythmic gradient of sound.’

Earhoof lets you layer multiple audio files and combine them with high quality digital signal processing.

Here’s what they have to say about Earhoof:

By continuously changing the sound parameters along the length of your device, Earhoof allows you to create highly expressive playable surfaces.

Its innovative internal rhythm engine allows you to easily play this surface, switching seamlessly between complex rhythms while remaining in complete control of the generated sounds. The result is a playing experience unlike any other, blurring the line between sequencer and instrument.

Here’s a video demo of Earhoof in action:


  • Includes over 80 presets, each one a unique multi-sample instrument
  • Draw curves to modulate DSP parameters for Gain, Pitch, Pan, Filters, Delay and more
  • Import your own WAV and AIFF files with iTunes File Sharing
  • Record or manually create your own rhythms
  • Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support allows Earhoof to interact with other music apps
  • Record your performances as audio files without ever leaving the app
  • In-app help manual will help you quickly learn the ins and outs of the program

Earhoof is available now for US $4.99 in the App Store.

  1. I hope it’s skin-able and I hope they have a version of the skin that looks like some old analog gear with 4 touch strips, wood, very retro looking…. i hope i hope i hope

    1. Hell yes, and I hope it can sort my grocery list while showing the weather forecast too. Anything you would like in this app that was designed by someone else is yours, just ask.
