I review many applications and, most of the time, I am very impressed by the creativity of the developers...
Some even show magic...
I know one, for example, who manages to fit a real Drummer into his Apps (the poor one...)
Embertone, are also magicians....
I don't know how they do it, but every time they release a new App, so a new instrument, it's magic...
It's really like a simple magic trick that you can't understand...
An Israeli Flute, a Sax, an Irish Flute, an Ocarina...
I have lots of flutes and even Shire Whistle and no one can sound like this one....
Shire Whistle Is an AUv3 instrument and a Stand Alone App too.
The 2 version are identical excepted the keyboard (a switch to a double keyboard in the Stand Alone version.)
As usual with the Embertone App, a Reverb.
A magical one as usual again with a slider to set the Size and the Reverb amount.
In the setting menu the MIDI cc assignment: legato | slide | poly | short | volume| sustain pedal | reverb amount | reverb time | vibrato
Also a round rob|n switch | on-screen wheel function (pitch bend) | ornaments velocity / threshold bend range in semItones & Mute
a Buffer settings & Midi input & output section.
One more time magic is there...
Sure that I will use it in a lot of other Apps reviews, as it is with the Jubal Flute and the Sax...
I love it, I love them all...
A Killer App!

The App Store description
Welcome to the Shire!
It's time for a musical jig, an excellent eve for some spirits and wine
so have a seat, put down your sword, and join us for a pint
We'll banter on about days of old,
while we share a smoke and tall tales are told
You'll hear about Barty, the fool of the town,
Blakeley and Barny, who will turn any frown
There will be mention, of course, our friend from the north
who came riding in on a stunning white horse.
And if you perk your ears up, you'll hear something quite blissful:
the sound of a beautifully-crafted SHIRE WHISTLE!
Embertone's Shire Whistle iOS edition uses the same sample set and concept from the original version for Mac/PC. It's an authentic virtual Irish Whistle with true legato slurs and slides. A beautiful set of short samples are included for you to get a preciiioooooouuuusssssss sound.
Because I can read everywhere a Policy...
