New Freewheeler Music App Lets Anyone Sound Like a Rock, Pop, or Country Band

Freewheeler is an innovative music app that lets people who do not play an instrument create rock/pop/country music. The free iPhone/iPad music app has just been released in the iTunes App Store.

Freewheeler is a new rock, pop, and country music app designed for people who do not play an instrument.

The way the app is laid out is native to the touchscreen environment, unlike many music apps that involve a simple translation of a keyboard or guitar interface.

Pitches, chords, and power chords are laid out around small wheels that invite users to try out new combinations - the essence of creative discovery.

Tapping and swiping produce different sounds, and users quickly get the feel for switching back and forth between these gestures.

When users hear something they like, it’s easy to capture with the built-in multi track recorder. They can set down a chord pattern, then while playing it back, add a riff or a melody or acoustic or synth chords. The user is the whole band.

“People wish they could do more with music”, says the app’s creator, Shaun Elder. “We’re responding to that hunger. We’d also like to see artists using this app as a platform to empower their fans - sharing ideas that their fans can then explore creatively.”

“We invite artists who are down with this vision to contact us, we will work with them to create custom apps, or they will be able to use our soon-to-be-released audio import feature to send out new ideas to fans by email”, says Pablo Joseph, User Experience for freewheeler.
