Welcome to Fiddlewax

Fiddlewax instruments are designed from the ground up to enable anyone who enjoys music to experiment, play, and create their own songs without formal instruction.

Every aspect of Fiddlewax puts music first. Simple interfaces help musicians focus on what they’re creating; there are no ads, faux-wood textures, or frivolous interaction to distract from the creative process.

Fiddlewax takes the best of both physical and virtual instruments — full 10-finger multitouch support and maximum playing area provide for seamless digital interaction, while under the hood, samples are processed and routed as analog signals with variable frequency and timing.

Play Fiddlewax today, and amplify your inner voice.

Fiddlewax Blue
Music Maker

Fiddlewax Blue lets you create music at any level.

Instead of practicing scales and memorizing sheet music, Fiddlewax helps you start creating your own songs right away by experimenting and visualizing 2D patterns of notes and chords.

Progress through eight levels: from a simple palette of common chords, to more advanced chord inversions, seventh chords, out-of-key accidentals, chromatic riffs, and even microtonal sliding chords and analog note-bends. There’s also a campfire mode with common major, minor, and seventh chords so you can quickly play along with any song that has chord notation.

Fiddlewax Blue also lets you choose from eight built-in instruments (including true piano, guitar, and xylophone samples), as well as four user instruments you can record (just whistle, hum, or tap on something around you) for an endless supply of sounds to experiment with. And when you’re ready, play and record your song to save for later, import into other programs, or share with your friends.


  • 8 play modes from simple to advanced (6 - 48 chords).
  • 8 built-in instruments + 4 user-recorded instruments.
  • Record and share up to two minutes of your music.
  • Select key root note + 8 scale modes (Major, Minor, etc.).
  • Realtime MIDI output via WiFi and MIDI file saving.
  • Virtual MIDI support (send MIDI out to other iOS apps).

  • Great for all experience levels, from beginners to experts.

Fiddlewax Yellow
Harmony Looper

Fiddlewax Yellow is a live vocal harmony generator, effects processor, and looper all rolled into one.

Create your own music from the ground up using just your voice and whatever is around you! Realtime harmony lets you create and layer sounds as fast you can think of them. Unleash your imagination and build awesome audio tracks in seconds.

Unlike other pitch shifters which often quantize and auto-tune notes relative to a key, Fiddlewax Yellow builds polyphonic full-spectrum harmonies. Slide and bend the pitch of your voice and Yellow seamlessly follows along.

Yellow lets you make music whenever the inspiration strikes. You will need headphones to record, though, so be sure to have some handy.

For more information, read the Fiddlewax Yellow Guide Book.
