Learn about the music and movie industry's best kept secret - WIVI™.

The WIVI instruments are real-time playable computer models of real acoustic instruments. But instead of being constructed from woods, metals or plastics, they're based on the analysis and modelling of the sound and physics of the actual instrument.

The professional studio version of WIVI is normally used by artists, composers and producers for everything from radio hits to Hollywood blockbusters. Now you can enjoy the same expressive musical instruments that professionals have had access to for years, at a fraction of the price.


See a demonstration of Wivi Band™ on YouTube, by amazing Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater:


Wivi Band is now also available as a VST/AU/RTAS sequencer plug-in, for use in your professional music productions! For more information please visit our homepage:



Wivi Band runs on the iPhone, using the microphone as a wind controller with full dynamic range, and an easy-to-learn piano fingering with 5-octave range.

Wivi Band includes 15 expressive musical instruments - Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Tuba, Tenor Saxophone, Alto Saxophone, Flute, Piccolo, Alto Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon and Contrabassoon.

Hook up Wivi Band to headphones, a Hi-Fi system or multi-track recording device, start a band with your friends or watch your kids take their first steps as rising musicians.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: The octave keys sometimes let go when I play the keyboard?

A: Make sure your screen is as clean as possible! This makes it easier for the iPhone to detect multi-touches.

Q: Why is the sound low-fi on my 1st generation iPhone?

A: The iPhone 2G (1st generation) automatically locks at 8 kHz sample rate whenever the internal microphone is in use. To get high-quality output on 2G iPhones, you must use a compatible headset with microphone.

Q: How do I use it on my iPod Touch?

A: If your model supports it, you can use a headset or an external microphone. If you don't have a microphone, the Wivi Band instruments will lock at the highest dynamics and are still playable, but without wind controller support.

Q: Why are some keys blacked out?

A: Keys that are blacked out are outside of the natural range of the instrument. Most wind instruments only have a 4-5 octaves range.

Q: I get little response from blowing at the Microphone of my iPhone 4.

A: Make sure that microphone amplification is set to 2x in Wivi Band, on the main screen.

Ipod Touch 4g Issues Unresolved

I purchased this specifically for the French Horn and Saxophone.
The good: The two-handed controls are clever, give something akin to the feel of an actual instrument, and allow for beginners to make music right away. The woodwinds in general, including the three Flute variations, have very warm, fairly authentic tones. The woodwind options are well done and span several registers nicely.
The not-so-good: The keys are a touch to small to be comfortable, and it's awkward to play a scale because of the way you have to shift. The brass is seriously lacking. Some of the notes are too quiet while others are too bright, giving an uneven feel. If you were to string all the brass together from Tuba through French Horn and up to Trumpet you'd have a few octaves of electronic, annoyingly brassy beginner keyboard sounds, rather than the full, bold tones one can hear in even a High School marching band. I have two brass apps that provide FAR superior authenticity, playability, and tone.
I believe this is an overpriced app. The variety of instruments detracts from what is done well and pulls down the overall value. I would MUCH rather see the dev team split this into two apps - one for woodwind and one for brass. Make the woodwinds a bit less electronic and give sizing options for the keys and this would be a five-star app, even for the price. Shuck the brass and start from scratch.

Update 3/10/2011
Service has responded twice saying "get a line-in headphone mic". I do not want to use this with headphones, I want a $9.99 app to WORK. The update moved the "blow here" arrow from the lower right corner to the lower left corner for my ITouch4g, but it was a graphic update only - the mic still doesn't register. As-is this would be a 5-star app if it were a buck or two, but if I'm gonna spend several times that FIX THE THING OR OFFER A REFUND! Perhaps a 4X mic option would fix?

5/5 stars

iPod Touch 4G microphone placement

The updated graphic actually points at the iPod Touch 4G speaker (doh!). If you flip the Touch over, the microphone is beside the back-facing camera on the opposite side. Blowing here produces a very nice signal for the instrument, even though you can't blow directly on the mic and still see the keyboard real well. You'll actually be blowing sort of past the microphone, rather than into it directly if you want to look down at the keys but, as I mentioned, it works great as long as the 2x amplification option is enabled. This has to be one of the coolest apps in the iTunes store. If you want to hear the sounds as intended (they are very high quality), plug the headphone out into an appropriate amplification system. I use a Peavey Vypyr guitar amp aux in, and it sounds absolutely killer!
