Welcome to the Steel Pan Orchestra Series! These apps bring you right to the Caribbean Sea. You can enjoy playing Steel Pan in an ensemble. These apps simulate the true sound of the Steel Pan (Steel Drum), the pitched percussive instrument born in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. Just tap the screen with your fingers to play, easy enough that anybody can play Pan!
Don’t settle for a midi instrument or manipulated tone, each note on these apps were sampled from real Steel Pans to create the “true” sound that no electronic device can create.
The larger iPad screen even lets you use both hands, just like a real Steel Pan.
