Singing Fingers

Singing Fingers is yet another reason the iPad is a must have for musicians. How can you not like this? The iPhone version is available now and looks ok on the iPad: click here (App store link).

“Singing Fingers Lets You Finger Paint with Sound. Make a sound while moving your finger to record a sound-drawing. Touch the drawing you just made to play the sound back: forward, backward, sideways, or any way. That’s it! Singing Fingers lets you see music, hear colors, and re-see everyday sounds for the beautiful playground that they are. Singing Fingers lowers the floor to let beginners play with sound as if it was finger paint, and raises the roof by letting advanced DJs break out of the grooves of the records into a world where sounds take any shape you give them.” – singingfingers.com

    1. Yeah I’ve been playing with it for about an hour… definitely makes some unique sounds. It’s going to get some use for sure.

    This would be excellent for use during a live performance though it might fit best in a concert by acts like The Flaming Lips or Otto Von Scraitch.
