"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!
