'Leaf Trombone: World Stage' Arrives in App Store

Leaf Trombone: World Stage [App Store, $0.99], the latest application from Smule, has been released and is now available in the App Store at an introductory price of $0.99. Originally demoed at Apple's iPhone OS 3.0 media event last month, Leaf Trombone: World Stage is a musical instrument application in the vein of Smule's popular Ocarina application.

Leaf Trombone: World Stage allows iPhone users to combine breath and multi-touch input to create melodies with the sound of a trombone. A "touch-only" mode is also available for iPod touch users.

Play:
Leaf Trombone World Stage is a trombone, and, while inspired by traditional Chinese leaf blowers, it sounds like the real brass instrument.

Learning to play the Leaf Trombone is easy. If you have ever had music lessons, you will pick it up instantly. If not, our easy to follow lighted pegs will teach you to play any song from our enormous library of user-created melodies.

Perform:
Heres where the World Stage part comes in. Anyone can perform before a global audience. A panel of judges (i.e. other Leaf Trombonists) will send you love or, encouragement to try again, through short messages and emoticons.

Judge:
Once you've played around with the Trombone, you're ready to be a judge, too! You can help other Leaf Trombonists by listening to their performances and giving them your honest opinion of their artistry. Or, if you happen to be in a bad mood

Be the audience:
Too shy? Trombone finger tired? Just kick back and listen to aspiring artists as well as accomplished maestros perform. Be entertained by your favorite performers, songs and judges.

Compose:
Feeling truly creative? Go to our easy-to-use online composition tool to post your own score or musical accompaniment to store for your own use or to share with the world community of Smuleans.

Gizmodo points to an amusing demo of the application by Rhett & Link, who tackle "Movin' on Up", the theme song from the '70s and '80s television show The Jeffersons.
