Needs a tenor bass

This app is great overall but I play the tenor bass in my orchestra and it gets confusing if I have to play the six bass and transfer the notes to the tenor bass in real life.

Developer Response ,

We totally understand that it is counterproductive practicing on the Six Bass but you instrument of choice is the Tenor Bass. You can get a Tenor Bass in the upgraded version of this app it’s called “Steelpan App PRO”

Before you downloaded this app the description of the app indicated the 4 SteelPans that this app comes with.
Big thank you for your input. Have a bless day.

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.

This is a great app, it is very handy, fore I can pull out my phone, and practice songs where ever I go, I have even used it while listening to a band, and worked out the chords, and some riffs, that I heard being played, was very nice to be able to figure it out on spot using this app (#1 Steelpan App Gold)on my Iphone. This app also have the ability to import midi files, so you can teach yourself songs, and it will make a great teaching tool in the classroom. This is by far, the best steelpan app on the market. I use it, I love it and I would recommend it to anyone.
