Fiddlewax Pro, Now Called Firo - Free For a Limited Time

Developer Adam Kumpf has decided to make his Fiddlewax Pro app free for a limited time so that students and teachers can make use of this helpful learning aid! He also changed the name to Firo, but you still get all of the same Pro features without any ads or IAPs!

And after multiple rounds of feedback from musicians and a long series of app updates to dial things in, Firo has finally reached a level where it can fully deliver on its promise of being a go-to app for creating new music.

But as powerful as Firo is, the $20 price tag that has come with being a “pro” app has certainly limited the overall audience of potential iPad musicians. And that’s a serious bummer.

We also think Firo could be a great tool for education; it’s simple enough for anyone to play around, and it includes deeply integrated music theory that opens new doors as students learn. Of course the price tag also gets in the way there, too, since it can be difficult for teachers to use paid apps in their classroom (often requiring funding justification and logistical overhead).

So to celebrate Firo’s new level and open it up more broadly to new musicians, we’ve decided to make Firo completely free through the end of July. This isn’t a light version or something watered down with ads; it’s the complete Firo experience for you to explore and create new songs. Happy music making!

Buy Firo on iTunes: Free (On Sale, from $19.99)

Had it since it was initially released and has been a good academic tool for studying scales and notation relationships. The developer has always been dedicated with his iOS suite of music apps and this 'sale' is a genuous gift for anyone in music.

I'm personally not crazy about the pick bass, cello samples, or tom samples. The demos all seem a little flat, dynamically, but the interface of the app seems clever and well-designed.
