Description

This is a musical instrument with a unique interface. Utilizing three separate sound sets: Tibetan bowls, crotales (small bells), or a dulcimer, it provides a peaceful atmosphere when played. The twelve stones are fashioned from dodecahedrons, which react when touched. A bit more than a vibraphone, and a lot more than wind chimes, this immersive and meditative environment is a must-have for any music lover. An octave-plus-fifth range is available, and each stone is also color-coded, so non-musicians can learn and remember their musical patterns right away - geometry, color, and sound, brought together. Both children and adults can enjoy this engaging tactile experience, with no musical skills required, as the organization of the stones is based upon the principles of chord construction. On the settings screen you can choose any starting note, the instrument, and any of 21 possible scales - (for musicians: the 7 modes of major, melodic minor, and harmonic minor). The application is also multi-touch enabled, to facilitate harmonies as well as melodies.

Very cool

:
This app is very cool period but even more so when playing along with music already written in a specific mode. It has become an easy soloing instrument. It would be nice to have more sound options and would be amazing if midi compatible.
