The first musical instrument and MIDI controller that adapts to the player's hands.

PIANO KEYBOARD GUIDE
Clawtar now shows a piano keyboard at the bottom of the screen. On this keyboard you can see the currently selected range and the notes you play. You can not play on this keyboard. It is a view-only element. If you like, you can hide this keyboard by going to Settings>Show Piano Keyboard Guide and turning the switch off.
- Calibration algorithm optimised. It now works much faster and smoother.
- Settings menu was remade. It is now shown as a more regular dialog instead of a fullscreen view.
- Minor UI improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Does what it was designed to do
I don't have a clue as to what the other review thought they were buying but this app is NOT about the included sound engine. The developer could have left that out for all I care. But for what this app was designed to do, it does very well. It replaces the crappy little keyboards that come with apps that do have a stellar sound engine (Thor, Photophore, Sampletank, etc.). I was looking for a soft controller so that when I'm not hooked up to my midi rig and want to compose I have an easier way to play the instruments with sub-standard playing interfaces. This does the job nicely!
Can't understand the use for this app
I was able to bring over via Midi instruments to this app from another and that was cool, now what? How do I actually use the app in a musical context? The keyboard layout is simply confusing. I wish the developer could offer more detailed instructions than just the quick-start guide.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thank you for your feedback.
Yes, I know the app interface doesn't look like any over musical instrument's layout. It is an experimental one. But the main idea is quite simple. In your right hand you have one-octave long chromatic scale. And with your left hand you move this chromatic scale around. In result, you have access to all chromatic scale notes in the range of about 4 octaves. I am planing to make more tutorials for the app.
This is a very fun and unique midi controller. Works really well
Not sure what the 1 Star review is about? That does not reflect the quality of this app, at all.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
