IPhone Talkbox: Like Peter Frampton Got Stuck in Your Phone
June 24th, 2009
This application for the iPhone lets you create cool vocal/guitar sound mash-ups that sound like something off of Frampton Comes Alive or Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet.
LoL Software’s TALKBOX app for the iPhone lets you manipulate sounds with your mouth, creating that classic 1970s guitar wah-wah sound.
You manipulate the tone by changing the shape of your mouth while the sound samples play. Because you need to put the iPhone really close to your mouth to get the effect right, you might look a little silly playing the TALKBOX, but once you perfect the mouth movements, you’ll have a hard time putting it down. Check out the video below for a little Hendrix Star Spangled Banner tribute…
TALKBOX comes pre-loaded with almost 30 built-in guitar, bass, and funk tracks for you to pair up your voice with. I’m hoping they’ll add the ability to load your own tracks in, but for now you’re limited to the built-in tunes. You can grab a copy over at the iTunes App Store for just 99 cents and rock out!
Just don’t blame me when people think you’re trying to eat your iPhone.
