    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)

    If you need help or support I check GBATemp fairly often, but I'm way more active on Reddit as /u/er1c1996.

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

    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 bet someone will start a thread on people playing stuff on this. I'm really excited for this honestly.

    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 )

    This is going to be great app. I'm going to use it. Oh yeah.
    In all seriousness though, can't wait for this to come out.

    THAT'S MARIN NOT MALON

    Sorry I'm overreacting when it comes to my favourite Zelda game...
