Firo4 is a new build of Firo (with all of its functionality plus lots of updates) and is free till this month-end(March).

Firo4 is 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.
Firo4 knocks down the walls between drummers, pianists, guitarists, and songwriters. Bridging the gap across instruments and theory opens the door to more people making more music that expresses more of what they want to say.
1. 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.
2.Play your heart out
Choose from 12 instruments, all optimized for high-quality playback. Select from four drum modes with both analogue and electronic samples. Add filter and reverb effects to shape your sound.
3.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.
4.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.
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.
6. ee what you sing
Visual pitch detection allows you to sing what’s in your head and see which corresponding notes light upon the keyboard.
7.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 a lti-channel MIDI file.
8. hare with the world
Share your audio recordings with other iOS apps and save files to your computer when you sync your device.
9.Connect with other apps
Send realtime audio directly to other iOS apps via Audiobus and Inter-App Audio. Output MIDI to control other iOS synthesizers or to desktop synths and workstations via WiFi / Bluetooth.
