Very good percussion teaching instrument!

Gave a class at a private school in Ocala, Florida on December 18,2013 and the High School students were very impressed with the development of the " Jibaro" music. I used the App to explain how to play each percussion instrument and how it varied thru the years. The App is awesome and when are you going to make one App for "Salsa" ?

Almost there!

This one features the basic instruments you'd find in a Puerto Rican Xmas carollers' kit. I expected plenera drums instead of bongos, the trombone is a cheesy MIDI iimitation with fixed tunes, and the cowbell pair won't be fast enough when you alternate them, but the basic grooves are there, and are pretty decent! So are the other instruments. I'd love a tempo control and a tunable slider for each instrument, but this App is pretty cool... A portable asalto!!!
