It’s About Time!

Quite an Impressive App I must admit. If you are a musician or student this app will be perfect for personal improvement especially for composing ideas on the spur of the moment and recording. Educationally, it grabs the attention of students immediately and is amazing for practicing individual parts for almost any song. The ability to import midi files and see the playback on the pan is really a step in the right direction. It’s about time the steelpan be given this type of attention. I would recommend this to anyone, the possibilities are endless!

This App comes in handy for last minute practices for gigs/performances. When I am on the go I can easily pull out my phone and enjoy yet practice on my Electronic synthesized Pan which also comes with many unique features such as changing the octaves and tones. This new and improved Steel drum app is a step into new and improved technology and I absolutely love it! With such a reasonable price to download and so many benefits of installing such a well rounded instrument app why not,I highly recommend this App for any and everybody wanting to take their steel drum skills to the next level.

Great App!

As a professional steelpan musician, I use this app all the time on the go when I need to work out stuff but I don’t have my steelpan near by. In contrast to @Oh_Mg_ review, the steelpan tones aren’t that bad for a App. In fact it sounds a lot better than many real steelpans I’ve played. There are also many other tones like guitar, piano and trumpet in this app. Remember this app is only $2.99!! This app can be used as a great teaching tool for teaching steelpan in a classroom setting as you can record your self playing and have a visual play back to show students! You can also teach yourself songs on this app by importing .midi files to have the notes played on the layout of the app. This is the best steelpan app on the market!
