If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to make music with rare stringed instruments from around the world, you’re in for a treat.
A new app coming from EarthMoments promises to dish out sound samples meticulously collected from an impressive variety of unique instruments that most of us will never lay a hand on.
The app, named Rututu, collects these samples into libraries and inserts them into loops. Users can drag and drop these loops into Rututu’s cool “playground” where you can manipulate them in a variety of ways. The loops automatically sync, so things never sound off, making this a fun way for both kids and adults to get into music-making.
One of the coolest aspects is the ability to mesh ancient instrument sounds with very current musical styles. Sitar hip-hop anyone? Go for it!
The app currently has a Kickstarter campaign running for its completion. You can check it out and join here>>
