From courtly love to bluegrass to folk escapades, mandolin has been one of the most mysterious and personal instruments in history. Using our expertise in musical app design, we bring you the first iPhone and iPod Touch adaptation of this venerable instrument.

Featuring three different sounds, or "instruments", Mandolin also offers a new zero-latency picking/plucking algorithm we have developed in-house. Combined with a choice of three different plucking modes, you can execute different playing techniques with ease and speed.

★ For example, you can set Mandolin on "Pluck Only" to use the tremolo picking technique....in this mode, tapping the string will not make a sound, but when you move your finger up and down on the string (imagining that you are hitting it with a plectrum), the string will be plucked.

Mandolin also offers you the ability to tune each of the 8 strings individually to craft your own harmonic or cross tunings. To start you off, we have included 10 tunings.

Additional features include the option to change fretboard orientation, left-handed mode, pluck-only-modes picking sensitivity, and our vintage-influenced reverb unit with settable time and feedback, easy fretboard scrolling, and a capo on/off setting to "capo" the fretboard on the lowest (partially) visible fret.
