Orphion. I could not believe what’s going on here. Still on my first generation iPad it already feels like a fifth gen touch device with pressure detection. Touch softly to produce soft sounds – hit hard for loud and tinny sounds. Stunning. Bastus Trump did a splendid job developing this new digital instrument.
In 2014, Bastus was demanded by Apple to remove the app from the app store b/c Apple did not like the way Orphion uses the shape of the touch to play strong and soft sounds. What a silly decission! But your can still enable and enjoy the effect by double-tapping the version number in the about box.
Here is a little tutorial how to customize and connect Orphion with ThumbJam to play a Hang on iPad.
