• Created by a Trinidad and Tobago national who has been playing and teaching steelpan professionally for over 30 years and who has also patented and created the World's 1st Electronic Steelpan, the E-Pan.
This steelpan app is a one of a kind application for your ipad/iphone. The user will be able to play an entire range of a steelband/steel orchestra in this one application. The user can also do this in different styles in the form of a Tenor, a Double Seconds or a Six Bass. The sounds that you hear coming out of this application are real steelpan sounds/tones. They are not samples or computer generated.
Tapping your screen with your finger will produce a regular sound like playing the steelpan with a pan stick once. By keeping your finger on the snare drum icon and then keeping your finger on any note/chord after tapping the note/chord, you will be able to create a sustained rolling effect as though you were rolling with two pan sticks.
There are several steelpan screens. There is a Tenor steelpan screen, a Double Seconds steelpan screen and a Six Bass steelpan screen. With each of these layouts you can press the up and down arrows to change your octaves. As a result, although you are playing the Tenor layout on the Tenor screen, you can press the down button to get lower steelpan sounds/tones, covering the full range of the entire steelband/steel orchestra going as low as the Six Bass. The same applies to the Double Seconds and Six Bass screens. If you press the up arrow it will take you up to the high octaves in the Tenor range (octaves 4, 5, 6 and 7) or you can press the down arrow to go as low as octaves 1 and 2 in the Bass range.

What's New in Version 2.1
Now you have the option to choose different instruments such as Piano, Brass Synth, Flute and another tone/sound of steelpan which comes from a different tuner. This App aims to provide the user access to the sounds of just about every musical instrument. All these different tones/sounds are available to you while you play the Steelpan App in the same conventional way.
NEEDS AN UPDATE
The thing I love most is the response to touch and the tone of the notes. What it needs to be great is a better way to roll the notes. Holding down the roll icon to roll makes it cumbersome. Try multi touch gestures for the roll. So if I use two fingers the note will roll. Maybe even make the upper corner of the notes the part that triggers a roll. For now it is only worth playing around at home. With a proper roll feature maybe I can try this at an event.
PS. Why include controls on the image of the pan that do not work? That could have been left out.
Best steelpan app! Take it from a steelpan player/techie
This app is the most responsive steel pan app on the apple app store and it is also the BEST sounding app on the apple app store.YOu all should also give us the option for if the notes should appear on the pan or not.We should also be able to record our playing on the steel pan app.BUT I MUST FINALLY SAY,this steel pan app is the best on the app store.I hope you all keep updating it so it will stay the best!
Waste of money
Do not waste your money on this app!!! Nice sound, nice response, but this app has not been updated and it stops working after less than 30 seconds. It just cannot keep up. There are other apps that are free or even better. Do not buy this!!! If i could give it zero stars i would!!!!
