This app uses the ringer/alert sound channel instead of the usual volume control. There is no velocity sensitivity on the bars and the bars are not responsive enough to do a roll on a single note. I'd love to be able to get a refund. Sample sound is ok, at least, and the graphics and size of bars are good and easy to hit. There's at least 3-note polyphony.
Ways to make this much better:
-change the way the volume output works
-add velocity sensitivity
-increase responsiveness of the bars
-add an octave switcher to get more notes
-add other common mallet percussion samples for the win!
