VirtCello v1 (c) PGBapps, is an app for emulating the sound of the Cello. This Cello is a musical instrument with a twist. Use of orientation sensor and a tilt of the device changes the Cello fingerboard notes, while accelerometer allows for reverberation. This version 1 app makes use of four main buttons for the four Cello strings (and three between buttons for double bowing strings), and tilting/twisting the device changes the notes.
This version is simple and fun, and you can invent your own edgy musical tunes with it. If you are interested in more sophistication, look for VirtCello v2 which gives you more control of the fingerboard.
