Been saving up for that Hang, but don't have quite enough yet? You can get busy on our version of the infamous steel instrument. Start it up, bang away, even record your own loop to play along with. So authentic, your friends will think yours has already arrived. Fill them in on the secret, and they too can download and record their own creations. Do I hear a "Hang out"???
Little bit of information about the Hang ... The Hang is a steel percussion instrument that is typically played using the hands and fingers while it rests in the musician's lap. It was developed in Switzerland in 2000 by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer. There are currently 5 generation models.
Ours is a first generation Hang that defaults to the Aeolian tuning with a D3 central note and a A3 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 tone loop. The eight notes are arranged in a 'Tone Circle' that zig-zag from low to high and are harmonically tuned around the low 'Ding' note in the center. Select from 45 tunings including microtonal tunings. These various tunings can be mixed into loops that are being constructed.
Many thanks and kudos to Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer for creating such a unique, elegant, and fun instrument. For more information about the origin of the Hang, to hear some sound samples, or just to see someone kickin' it, visit one of the following:
The loop recording in all of the OddTunes apps is roughly modelled after the Gibson / Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pro. While there are only a few buttons, there is much more functionality there than meets the eye. For more information on the operation of the looper, please visit our Web site at the following address:
Features coming soon:
- ability to save and replay your loops
- adjustment of loop decay rate
- fixed length loops by setting time or tempo and number of beats
OddTunes:Hang is one of the many fine instruments coming your way from the Avacata iPhone development team. Stay tuned for new upcoming OddTunes releases and additions to the loop recording capabilities.
From one musician to another ... it's Hang time. Ding, Ding, Ding.
Version 2.0 is a major release!
* 45 tunings!
* Includes micro-tuned scales
* Loops can contain notes from multiple tunings
* Strike logic completely rewritten to allow more simultaneous or near-simultaneous strikes
* Muted notes are now in the 4 corners and are not dependent upon holding a note
* Settings menu
* Strike animation (can be turned off for performance reasons)
* Start loops on first strike option. Now get a perfect loop every time!
All of the original tunings for the first generation Hang are included plus more that have been used with Hangs.
Version 2.2 now adds iPad support and faster startup!
* iPad device support
* 6x faster startup
* Uses only 20% of the runtime memory needed upon startup
* Fixed several unreported bugs
Version 2.3 now adds IOS4 multitasking support. Included is the freeing up of unused resources to ensure that your Hang loop footprint stays small and you can jump back in where you left off. So take that conference call ... but when you hang up, get back to "Hanging" out.
* Still works on 3.0 devices
* Small suspended footprint helps avoid system termination
* Improved accuracy of touch zone recognition
Save your loops. Share your loops. Amaze your friends.
What's New in Version 3.1
Only two things in this mini-release that we messed up in the last release:
- iOS 5 crashes fixed
- No more black-screen if started from AudioBus
Suggestion for use: start with AudioBus and OddTunes:Hang. Add a distorted growl filled guitar effect (AmpliTube, AmpKit+, etc). Stack your favorite multi-track onto the end. Tasty!
