Orphinio, an app developed by Bastus Trump has been released for iPhone today. Orphinio is the little brother of the popular Orphion for iPad app and features an expressive virtual glockenspiel instrument.
Just like its bigger brother Orphinio makes great use of touch control changing the output on how you place and move your fingers across the screen. Check out the first jam video to see Orphinio in action.
