The Magic Fiddle iPad App Will Have You Making Sweet Music In Minutes [Video]

Smule, the maker of the popular Magic Piano iPad app, has just shared its new Magic Fiddle app with us. It’s cleverly designed, produces lovely sounds, and will only briefly frustrate the hell out of those with non-existant musical talent.

Despite being initially frustrating for a beginner, the app will actually leave you fiddling a mellow tune in little time. Magic Fiddle guides you through the proper way to hold your iPad—yes, you’re supposed to rest your chin on it—and then gradually walks you through some simple songs. Once you’re confident in your fiddling skills, you can compete against folks around the world and work your way up the Magic Fiddle leaderboards.

The app’s gonna cost you three bucks and is available in the iTunes store now. [iTunes]

Magic Fiddle Turns Your iPad Into a Violin, and It Rocks

Smule, makers of the musical iOS titles like Ocarina, I Am T-Pain, Glee Karaoke and Magic Piano, has just released its newest creation: Magic Fiddle for iPad [iTunes link].

What is Magic Fiddle, you might ask? It’s pure, unadulterated musical awesome. It turns your iPad into a string instrument — with a twist. The $2.99 app was just released in the App Store, but we got to spend some time speaking with Smule co-founder, CTO and Chief Creative Officer Ge Wang earlier this week about the app and how it works.

Describing Magic Fiddle doesn’t make a lot of sense until you see it in action. Smule created some demonstration videos showing off the app, and the fiddle, in action. Check out this example, which comes just in time for a certain plumber’s birthday:

You play Magic Fiddle the same way you would play a stringed instrument like a violin or a fiddle. You place the device on your shoulder and then use your fingers to pluck the strings and your other hand acts as the bow. If you have ever played a string instrument before, catching on to the process is very easy. My fiancé was able to pick up Magic Fiddle in just a few minutes.

I don’t have any previous experience with string instruments (I took piano lessons and never got that violin I always wanted), but thanks to the “Storybook” guiding mode, I too was able to pick up on the instrument’s nuances and learned proper finger position.

The app really goes out of its way to anthropomorphize itself. When you first pick it up, this is how the app greets you:

You tell the app your name and you can even name your fiddle. I named mine HAL.

When we spoke to Wang about the app, he pointed these features out, emphasizing the importance of making the app easy to pick up and making it feel whimsical and fun. The idea is also for the app to be easy to get a feel for — whether you are already an expert at games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, you have previous experience with a stringed instrument, or you just love music and want to play.

In addition to his work at Smule, Wang is also an assistant professor at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford. This is important, because just like the backends of apps like Ocarina, Glee Karaoke and I Am T-Pain were developed using some of the technology research pioneered at CCRMA, Magic Fiddle also gets some of its technological footing from the university.

In particular, Wang pointed out to us that Magic Fiddle isn’t just playing pre-recorded notes. The device itself is actually creating music. Using physical modelings developed at Stanford, the iPad itself has been programmed, by way of the app, to be able to generate and create unique sounds. These sounds aren’t 100% accurate to a real fiddle or violin, but they follow the same models. The results are that you are able to do freestyles and solos that have a lot more personality and zing, rather than merely just trying to match certain notes.


Making Music Fun


Ultimately, what comes through with Magic Fiddle, as with all of Smule’s other apps, is just how much fun it can be to create music. Beyond that, however, Magic Fiddle is a testament to just how much can be accomplished on electronic devices like the iPhone or iPad.

Two years ago — almost to the day — Ocarina was released for the iPhone. It was one of the first true “breakthrough” iPhone apps in that it showed that you could do something with an iPhone that most people probably never even expected to see: Play music based on blowing into the microphone. It helped kickstart a flurry of innovation in music-based apps and games that continues today.

With Magic Fiddle, we think Smule is doing the same thing for the iPad. Magic Piano remains one of the iPad’s most fun games, but Magic Fiddle, like Ocarina, really breaks the mold of what is possible and what is expected from the tablet device. Using multitouch for the strings and the bow — plus using Smule’s Global feature of connecting players with one another around the world, the game and app have tons of replay value and really makes the idea of making music on an electronic device feel natural. It’s also a ton of fun.

Magic Fiddle comes with a Songbook bundled with 20 songs that you can play along with and learn. Smule will also sell song add-on packs, with more songs added as time goes on, to even further enhance the app.

Freekade, the iPad arcade cabinet, goes up for auction (video)

What’s the date today, middle of August? Great, so we can now say with scientific certainty that it takes four and a half months to bring an excellent April Fools’ idea to market. That’s the total gap in time between the unveiling of the jokey iCade by the writers at ThinkGeek and the “for auction” sign going up on the Freekade arcade cabinet. This nostalgia-infused iPad accessory has now added a veneer of style to its retro control scheme, with “walnut effect” sides and a matte black finish. It interfaces with your slate via Bluetooth and (provided you’ve done the jailbreaking jig) will play along with NES, SNES and PSX emulators obtainable from the Cydia store. You’ll find its latest demo video after the break and can track the auction’s progress at the source link below.

iPad-Powered Kegbot [Kegbot]

The nerds at Yelp who revolutionized the way 20-something girls could give their opinions on stuff and actually have it matter in the slightest, have turned their attention to beer. Namely, making an iPad and a keg work together.

The shouting Yelper explains now the iPad/Kegbot contraption works. The iPad displays beer information—live, while it’s flowing—and even tracks who’s drinking from the keg, plus how much they’ve taken. You can rate the beer and even see a leaderboard.

And if you want to do it yourself, you can grab the source code here. [Yelp via Lifehacker]

Homemade Waterproof, Kitchen-Proof iPad Pouch

If you often use apps like Epicurious or Weber when you cook, you must have noticed how easy it is to get your iPad dirty (flour, water/oil, dirty fingers, etc…). In other words, the probability for you to mess up your iPad by spilling something nasty on it is definitely not negligible.

If you don’t want to worry about potentially destroying your $500+ gadget anymore, simply use the homemade iPad sleeve the guys at the Wired GadgetLab just came up with. Ultra-simple, ingenious, and dirt cheap, the homemade pouch is an easy way to avoid any mishap. Enjoy!
