a pitched percussion instrument for your iPad

Three instruments in one ~ for iPad!

Vibraphone ~ Marimba ~ Xylophone

Each instrument has dynamic bars that are color-coded, as well as a pitch overlay grid so you can see the names of the notes. You can play glissandos, chords, melodies, anything you can do with a real-world pitched percussion instrument, with a range of two and a half octaves. All three instruments were created with beautiful 3d graphics and carefully tailored sound samples. The vibraphone also includes a pedal feature, with a sustain and tremolo effect. Learn to play these timeless instruments, and let your fingers be the mallets!

~available on the app store~
