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.
*user note - If you have trouble hearing any sound, make sure your mute switch is not engaged, check the Apple Settings app, under sounds, turn up the volume, and set the mute switch to mute and not "lock rotation" and you will hear everything just fine.
