    This is Orchestrina, a tiny homebrew app to allow you to play a variety of instruments from the Zelda franchise. You can do anything from free-playing the Ocarina, to activating the familiar tunes of the games in Auto-Play mode! Includes instruments from OoT, Majora's Mask, Spirit Tracks, and more!

    Please note that for sound to work correctly on the .3dsx version, dspfirm.cdc is needed in the sd:/3ds/ folder.
    (Thanks @Asia81)

    Most importantly... it works!!! I kept it sooo simple that there's NO way I won't be able to release this very soon.

    A game
    I had something like this for the Nintendo DS. It had glitches and whatsoever, but worked. I hope this works better than that one when released.

    Neat! Will definitely be looking forward to this! But a quick question, will there be any way to make/record custom songs (Perhaps exporting/importing feature)? Or will there only be a free-play mode?

    I will take this into consideration perhaps for a future release. I'm planning for the first beta release to be Ocarina only with only N64 songs, then expand with more instruments, more songs, and then perhaps requests such as a recording feature. Stay posted! :)

    My suggestion; Make the auto song play mode optional
    Its easy to accidentally play the familiar tunes when freely ocarina-ing
    This would also be useful if we were to want to make something to come after the songs

    Sugestion: Link's Awakening DLC pack with Marin and the eight instruments of the sirens :P

    EDIT: Sorry, confused Marin with Malon.

    I am ready to see what this can do. Hopefully it will be good. How do the controls work as of now?

    Yup. As for post-N64 instruments I'll just map them as equivalently as I can. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    @DarkRiolu264 Now you will be able to :) I spent 10 mins looking for your name (and the quote) :P You better appreciate this lol

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, this will be amazing :D Will be so great to not need to open OOT just to use the ocarina :) (Yes, I know, I'm kinda sad :P )

    Can you not just do that on the actual game?
