Photos of the fretboards were taken and then cropped to size. Because of my recent neglect to clean my fretboard, some of the guitar’s fretboard was photoshopped to conceal the gunk buildups.



The Ukulele was sampled with a Zoom H5 in Logic Pro X and then exported to import into Hype. The guitar would have taken a long time to sample (30 sample notes) so using a software instrument was more viable, however, effects were added to change the sound.

Adding the Sample Triggers

Rectangles were placed over the strings on the frets to trigger the samples. The Triggers were then made 100% opaque so they are completely hidden.

Sadly, there is no control over sustain and the notes can bleed into each other, creating binaural beating when the intervals are close together. A properly coded app would have a way around this, as Hype’s audio engine is start and stop based.
