The Revolutionized Oud > The i-Oud
Invented by Ramy Adly
An iOud is a revolutionized electric oud that can alter the pitch, create over 20,000 different sounds from different instruments, and transcribe sheet music of any form based on the notes being played on the oud. The iOud is an internationally patented idea that is secured by the USPTO. The School of Oud Online LLC exclusively licenses the iOud to Oud Instrument LLC and it is available for purchase on Oudinstrument.com.
The iOud is a modern take on the oud, yet it has the same size and measurements of a traditional, acoustic oud. This allows for existing oud players to easily transfer their skills and abilities because the iOud will have the same size as an acoustic oud.
Ouds are works of art and so is the iOud, but the iOud is much more portable and less fragile than a traditional oud. The iOud is a much lighter weight, has a thin, sleek shape, and is much more durable than a large oud with deep, hollow wooden back. The iOud is significantly easier to travel with, perform with, and store on a day to day basis. There are multiple types of iOuds and the iOud 2000 will have a detachable back that is also very easy to store.

The Use of the iOud
Best solution for Session Musicians
The iOud is the most powerful tool for anyone who is trying to create music or pursue a musical career. There is no musical instrument or sound production tool that has the capabilities of iOud. This revolutionary technology can play sounds of any instrument and write the sheet music for it as it is being played. The iOud also has a built in pitch corrector that will ensure perfect notes every time and harmonized counter points. The instrument plugs in directly to a computer so there is no microphone needed. This is an essential tool for any musician who plays studio sessions to record songs, sound tracks, theme songs, and more. The variety of sounds and vast library of different sounds makes the iOud the most powerful tool for anyone trying to seriously pursue a musical career. The iOud can be used in performances but can branch off new paths of your career such as creating movie soundtracks, video game soundtracks, and new genres of music.
Best solution for an oud preforemer
If you perform the oud, you already love the oud instrument and have a special relationship with the music like Ramy Adly does. When developing the iOud instrument, RamyAdly made sure that the same experience and feeling of the oud would stay with him on the stage while also creating different melodies, sounds, and atmospheres. The iOud can create songs live by looping the sounds and playing different parts of the song. Live performances with the iOud have limitless potential. For example a melody can be played in the sound of one instrument and then be looped while a piano,violin, or drum solo is also being played on the oud. One iOud instrument and one talented musician can play a symphony of sound that will rival any orchestra or band.
Best solution for composers
Creating and writing musical compositions is difficult. A lifetime of experience and a masterful understanding of musicology are usually the two ingredients that create a great composer. The iOud instrument is a very powerful tool that allows anyone to become a talented musical composer. The iOud is capable of playing sounds from any type of instrument with over 20,000 different sounds. The iOud can then transcribe the sheet music of what is being played on the instrument into the sheet music of any type of instrument with zero latency. For example, you could play a classic oud solo then have it transcribed into piano sheet music as you are paying the notes. It is extremely satisfying to watch the music being written in real time and it helps further the musician’s understanding of composing music. You can now create songs for any instrument without having to know how to write sheet music. The iOud allows oud musicians to apply the same techniques and have the same feeling of playing a traditional oud while creating new sounds. Any songwriter, composer, and aspiring musician needs the iOud, for it is the most powerful musical tool in the world.
