World's first iPhone implementation of the main instruments of a Javanese Gamelan.
A gamelan is a musical ensemble from Indonesia. The word "gamelan" comes from the Javanese word "gamels", meaning to strike or hammer, and the suffix "an", which makes the root a collective noun. Real hammers are not used to play these instruments as heavy iron hammers would break the delicate instruments.

The lite edition is available only one part of gamelan musical instruments, namely saron
Saron in Laras Salendro. Mid-sized member of saron group. Metallophone with seven large bronze bars placed over teakwood frame. Keys held in place by two pins inserted through holes in the bars and embedded in the frame. Decorated with flower and leaf pattern covered in gold leaf. Length: 86.9 cm. Mallet (tabuh) with long handle and large, oval-shaped wooden striker.
Function: The saron instruments play the basic or skeletal melody of the music—the balungan. This basic melody is an abstraction of the melody played by the elaborating instruments. Usually the notation for any piece of music will be limited to the part played by the saron instruments.
Playing technique: The saron instruments are played by striking the bar in its center with the oval end of the mallet and dampening the previous bar when the next is played. The player sits on the side with the pitches ascending to the right.
