I got into composing since I'm into filmmaking and got into experimenting with scoring my own projects. I will sometimes hear a musical instrument in a score and I like it and want to know what it is, but a lot of times people cannot tell me.

Is there phone apps that can identify instruments, when recording a piece of music with them, into the phone? I tried looking it up but most music apps are not about that. But is there any?

How you want to compose music if you don't know the instruments or how they sound? Do you know notes and how to read sheet music?
Can you "hear" notes on a music sheet?
Do you know the note symbols, rest and beats? And how to write them on a music sheet? What instrument will you use to compose music?

Oh yeah I know those things, it's just that sometimes I hear an instrument I want to use in my compositions, but do not know what that instrument is, and figure an app can help tell me.

Does anyone know if there is any apps that can do it? I asked around but no one seems to know any.

You have two of them, one on each side of your head.

If you are listening to music on crummy 1/2" cell phone speakers that may be part of the problem. Listen to a good recording (CD or LP, NOT MP3) with headphones or real proper speakers with woofers and tweeters and all will become clear to you.

I think he wants to learn about instruments, so he can compose music to his movie...

Well, I would say the fast track to that would be to obtain pocket scores of the 9 Beethoven symphonies, and good quality CD (Deutsche Gramophon) recordings of ditto, and listen with good quality headphones (NOT I phone buds) to each one in turn, following carefully with the pocket score and making notes in pencil copiously. Continued repeat listening until each question that arises is answered, should complete the "fast track course in the basics of instrumentation".


After that, working through the three books of Walter Piston, "Orchestration", "Harmony", and "Counterpoint" ought to set you up pretty well to begin learning how to orchestrate a composition.


After that it's just a matter of a few decades of concentrated effort and trials.

Well mainly I will hear an instrument in a symphony here or there, and would like to use it myself, but I cannot identify what the instrument is, and when I ask other people, they don't know as well. This is usually the case with foreign or exotic sounding instruments, compared to the more common Western ones.

Oh sorry, I couldn't figure out the link you provided before. It seems to list programs to download but I wasn't really comfortable without knowing what the programs did exactly.

I checked out the new links. I'm checking out the new links now, and the old ones. Thanks!

But what does speaker quality have to do with it? No matter how good the speaker is, it will not tell me the names of the instruments being played.
