Customer Reviews of the Sounds Of The Orchestra App

Awful Midi sounds ruin an otherwise good program

I hate rip-offs's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

This would be a good program...if it used real orchestra sound samples, rather than canned midi sounds. It really shouldn't cost anything to use real instrumental sound samples. And maybe use samples from excerpts that actually feature the instrument, instead of having everyone play the Nutcracker or Carmen, etc.

Lynnyoungsingers's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

Reviewed on 9/16/19 2:05 PM

This was a disappointing purchase. I am a professional musician and bought this for my grandchildren and as a reference for my children's choirs if needed. The majority of the instruments do NOT sound like the instrument it represents. I tried playing the match game where you match the picture with the sound. I missed lots of them because I couldn't tell what instrument was playing! I think I wasted my money!

Needs more to do

Geranium1's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

I like the straight-forward simplicity of this app. But 4-5 more interactive games would be a needed addition to round this app out. Also, some basic history about the orchestra would be a nice touch as well. Otherwise, great concept for young children learning about the orchestra.

Ugh.

The sound samples are the worst midi you can imagine. I totally can't use this in my classroom. What a waste of money. Crap.

Fun, educational music app

Pdearmore's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

Reviewed on 9/16/19 2:05 PM

This is a cute little musical app that does a great job of filling a little niche in the app store that I never really knew existed. It does a great job of educating the user about how to identify instruments that are commonly found in an orchestra. I was hoping there would be a little more about music in general, but it really does focus exclusively on the instruments. It is at the very least a good, short diversion that will increase your knowledge of the orchestra.

Important

These guy did something right with this app and it's important you expose your children to it. My son and daughter found this very fun and "addicting" and their cousins seemed to be eager to join in. I looked over 5 minutes later and children (6 of them) aged 5 thru 10 were hovered over my iPad playing with this app. Clearly this firm tailored the software to the needs, attention span, and thinking of their users. What's more is the children have used this app repeatedly; it's not a one use app. I'm very pleased and look forward to new apps smapsoft. Jz

JMKWA's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

Reviewed on 9/16/19 2:05 PM

There are parts of this app I like, but I would never use with my music students. In the Listen section the oboe and clarinet sounds are associated with the wrong icon. You select oboe and you hear the clarinet, and visa-versa. Please fix! VERSION 1.0.1 - Thanks for fixing the issue. Your app is now ready for the classroom!

Love This App!

MBC Mom's Review of Sounds Of The Orchestra

Reviewed on 9/16/19 2:05 PM

This is a great introduction to the orchestra. My four-year old is learning the names and sounds of each instrument, and enjoys guessing which instrument is played on the quiz portion. I am so glad we purchased it!

Great Educational App

I purchased this app after see my niece and nephew play it. When I showed it to my 3 year old son, he gravitated right to it and loves to play the matching game. He has learned almost all of the instruments, by name and can sit and play it over and over and over again. What a great job Smappsoft did with this app. It is fun for kids or all ages and adults too.
