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.

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! :)

ds homebrew... I really want to use my n3ds as an ocarina...
@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.
