Band Instruments

Band There have been quite a few (13 to be exact) Instrument add-ons for Band in the last few days. Below is a list, screenshot, short description and video of each. I would highly recommend taking a look at the instruments and picking the ones that you like best. I found that Band can only handle around 3-4 additional instruments (besides the eight that come with it). Even then it randomly crashes. When I installed more than 4 additional instruments, Band would open to the splash screen hang there a minute and then close back to the SpringBoard. Band is available through the ModMyiFone source. All of the following Instruments are also available through the ModMyiFone source.

1. Bongos

    I wouldn’t install any instrument K Duds provides on installer, they’re really lame and not worth the trouble. Had the same crashes as you mentioned here. Band is a great app, now if only I could get my phone off my kids…….

  2. i installed all of them and then i get crash everytime i open more than 10 secs.
    I think this still have a log of bugs and laggy

    • Same problem here.. crashes every ten seconds. Does anyone know what to do about this?

    • Don’t have so many installed. Just add one at a time and see how it performs. If it’s ok then add another and test again. Keep going till you hit problems then go back a step and you have found your limit.

  3. I have found some other instruments but dont know if i can post links here. Brook?

  4. I’ve never experienced a crash since install and its had plenty of use,
    oh yeah, I also have every instrument installed…I think this is a Great App!! it’s weird how the same apps work so different on everyone’s iphone? (some working, some not?) -just my 2cents

  5. It s depends on what apps u lauch in background.
    If u go off an on again and lauch only band, it works perfect :D
    It s the case for me !

  6. Amazing

  7. i removed all of them, the basic instruments are enough for me

  8. if it crashes you should set the right permissions, and be sure to delete not needing instruments! (like scratches or audience)

  9. hey my Band app closes sometimes like when im playing an instrument…..umm help?

  10. Pitty harmonica is not working.
