Melody is a musical VR experience in which the user plays the African / Central American instrument: marimba, in different environments; merging creativity with the presence of VR simulation. A low latency audio engine allows for players to experience very little lag and jitter in their audio experience. We focused on creating a simulation instrument that is both expressive and realistic.

Like with the physical instrument, players can play with a combination of soft and hard mallets and currently the experiences supports play with up to 4 mallets (two per hand). There are also other features common to a musical workstation including a metronome, 4 track recording / playback, velocity and resonance sensitivity in the keys.

There are currently 3 levels to choose from. The Enchanted Forest is a fanciful forest scene where musical play generates excitement in the wildlife and the trees. The Practice Room is a true-to-life music room that serves a great sterile environment where one can focus and hone their skills. Lastly, The Tron Room is a futuristic environment that makes for a dynamic performance arena.

    I never thought I would be playing the Marimba. I have no experience playing this instrument and have very limited musical knowledge (I play guitar, using Rocksmith and tabs). I also have a very limited knowledge of reading musical notation. However, even with my limited musical training/experience, this app is just amazing and inspiring. I had a lot of fun just playing around with the Marimba in VR. I didn't notice any latency/lag issuees, double hits, or sensitivity problems [u] Note: I played this on the Oculus Rift with Touch Controllers and the controllers played fine [/u] (grab buttons are for volume, trigger to add a 2nd mallet, Y or B to go to main menu and choose different environments). I loved recording myself and then hearing the midi file once I exited the game. Amazingly, it actually didn't sound half bad if I don't say so myself. There's 3 different environments and they all bring a little something different to the table. I think you start off in the Enchanted Forest. It's a very nice environment to play in, just seeing the VR world around you makes playing the Marimba all that more enjoyeable and relaxing. However, I think you should start in the practice room. You can see where the C note is to center your playing and that's awfully helpful, especially not being familiar with the Marima key layout and not having the best musical ear. The Tron Room changes up the Marimba experience as the keys are laid out all around you. That makes playing the instrument totally different and is where I created my masterpiece due to my unrestrained creativity being properly unleashed :D Should you get this game? I think it's quite the bargain for $9;99. Just know that you will need some musical experience or have an appetite to learn and experiment. There are no lessons and no tutorial. If you love making music and VR, then it's a no brainer, get this app. Now, I'm going to check out some YouTube tutorials and see if I can apply what I learn there to my virtual instrument. Peace out!

    This was amazing to play. I loved playing the marimba back in high school and this game brought all of those happy memories back! Playing this felt like I was back in the high school band room playing away. While playing I did find it annoying how the menu button hint kept poping up every 5 min. I also saw the store page says vive only but, it runs just fine on oculus. One feature I would love to see is a way to view sheet music in the VR space. Overall I give this game 4 VR mallets up!

    Melody is awesome! A gorgeous colorful environment with a responsive Marimba setup, great fun for kids and adults. Really impressed with the ergonomic and accessibility tweaks the dev made to ensure it's comfortably playable for all.
