Firo4 CE is a student-focused, educational edition of Firo4, a cutting-edge musical instrument, drum kit, chord builder, and multi-channel looper; all seamlessly designed for maximum playability. Create new music like never before with an instrument that's built to help you turn your song ideas into reality, at school or anywhere else.
The classroom edition of Firo4 is a completely stand-alone instrument designed to provide a focused playing/learning experience. There are NO ads or in-app purchases to distract students as they explore and create music. To better suit young users' needs, MIDI, Audiobus, and Inter-App Audio integration are also not included in Firo4 CE (more advanced musicians will find those features in the standard Firo4 app).
• Music first •
Designed from the ground up to help you focus on what you’re creating. Reinvented piano layout extends your expressive potential. Supports 10-finger multitouch and seamless use; keep playing even while adjusting parameters.
• Play your heart out •
Choose from 12 instruments, all optimized for high-quality playback. Select from four drum modes with both analog and electronic samples. Add filter and reverb effects to shape your sound.
• Informed by theory •
Choose any key in 7 diatonic modes and 7 secondary scales (Pentatonic, Blues, Whole-tone, etc.) to facilitate stylistic riffs and melodies. Intuitively learn relationships between notes and chords as you play.
• Chords with context •
Quickly build complex harmonies with a single touch; push-button chords adjust to include triads, 6, 7, 9, sus2, sus4 and modulation chords while also informing the chorded zither/autoharp.
• Intuitive looping •
Five auto-expanding, synchronized loopers offer layering, contextual sizing, replay, and simple undo/redo via press-and-hold. Tempo control and beat quantization let you easily align looped sequences on the fly.
• See what you sing •
Visual pitch detection allows you to sing what's in your head and see which corresponding notes light up on the keyboard.
• Record your session •
Record up to 90 minutes of live session audio as you play — then output as both a stereo M4A file (clean output and vocal/mic input) and multi-channel MIDI file.
• Share with the world •
Share your audio recordings with other iOS apps and save files to your computer when you sync your device.
