iOrgel, turn your iPad into a Music Box 

The Musical Box is a 19th century automatic musical instrument that derives its unique sound from a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder that pluck the teeth of a steel comb. Yes, it's a very old school iPod!

iOrgel HD from Allum Interactive takes its name from the Japanese word for Music Box, Orgel. iOrgel HD gives you 48 notes to play with. You can edit, save, reload and share your tunes from within this stunningly attractive iPad application. The user interface is lovingly crafted to appear as authentic as possible. Most importantly, the unique sound of the Music Box is here even when using the internal iPad speakers. In short, it's a real labour of love.

Another instrument to add to the iPad collection.
