"REAL STEELPAN" is an application that recreates the sound of steel pans on your iPad/iPhone.  Also known as steel drums and kettle drums, this musical instrument originated in the Caribbean's Trinidad and Tobago.  Please enjoy these beautiful tones that were sampled from a real steel pan (Tenor Pan).


Tapping your screen with your finger will produce a regular sound like playing the steel pan with a mallet once. If you push and hold a note, it will produce a two-handed roll on that note. You can also produce a roll by holding down the drumstick/mallet icon in the lower-left corner of the screen while playing notes. When using this “roll icon,” you do not have to push and hold notes to get the roll sound.

The "Tap & hold to roll" function can now be turned on/off. When disabled, performance response is quicker, but you cannot "hold to roll." Regardless of this setting, however, the "Roll" button in the lower-left corner of the screen is always active.

There are two performance screens:

One has the notes laid out just like a real steel pan.

The other has the notes laid out like a piano keyboard, which is particularly useful if you are an inexperienced pannist.

Enjoy panning!

REAL STEELPAN」はカリブ海の島国トリニダード・トバゴの楽器スティールパン(スティールドラム)をiPad / iPhone上に再現したアプリです。実物のスティールパン(Tenor Pan)をサンプリングした美しい音色をお楽しみ下さい。


指で軽く叩くと鳴ります。長押しすると両手のマレット(バチ)で連打するロール奏法になります。左下のロールボタンを押しながら演奏すると、長押ししなくてもロールになります。


「長押しロール」はオン・オフを切り替えできます。「オフ」では、レスポンスが速くなる代わりに長押しロールは無効になります。画面左下のロールボタンはどちらの場合も有効です。


演奏画面は二つあります。一つは実際のスティールパンと同じ音の配列。もう一つは鍵盤楽器の白鍵・黒鍵のような配列です。スティールパンの独特な音の配列に不慣れな方はこちらを利用するといいでしょう。


Enjoy panning!
