Sound Wand reads your movements with the built in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions. It's like plucking invisible harp strings in the air...

- Fast and accurate response to your movements - not just a "random" motion-to-sound generator.
- Extremely “low latency” makes it viable for performance
- Built and thoroughly tested to be a solid, stable, and reliable app
- Creates musical possibilities that no other instrument, real or otherwise can create
- "Velocity sensitive" playback
- 44.1kHz / 16bit stereo (CD quality) audio
- Long sustain and high polyphony means smooth play without digital artefacts
- No games or gimmicks. Just a hi-quality instrument


Sound Wand is high performance application that requires iPhone 4 or newer running iOS 5+ (you might need to update your phone's software in iTunes). Also, while play is definitely tailored more for handheld devices, it works splendidly on the iPad and iPad Mini!
