Been saving up for that Hang, but don't have quite enough yet? You can get busy on our version of the infamous steel instrument. Start it up, bang away, even record your own loop to play along with. So authentic, your friends will think yours has already arrived. Fill them in on the secret, and they too can download and record their own creations. Do I hear a "Hang out"???
* Audiobus 2 support including state saving

Little bit of information about the Hang ... The Hang is a steel percussion instrument that is typically played using the hands and fingers while it rests in the musician's lap. It was developed in Switzerland in 2000 by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer. There are currently 5 generation models.
Ours is a first generation Hang that defaults to the Aeolian tuning with a D3 central note and a A3 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 tone loop. The eight notes are arranged in a 'Tone Circle' that zig-zag from low to high and are harmonically tuned around the low 'Ding' note in the center. Select from 45 tunings including microtonal tunings. These various tunings can be mixed into loops that are being constructed.
Many thanks and kudos to Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer for creating such a unique, elegant, and fun instrument. For more information about the origin of the Hang, to hear some sound samples, or just to see someone kickin' it, visit one of the following:
The loop recording in all of the OddTunes apps is roughly modelled after the Gibson / Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pro. While there are only a few buttons, there is much more functionality there than meets the eye. For more information on the operation of the looper, please visit our Web site at the following address:
OddTunes:Hang is one of the many fine instruments coming your way from the Avacata iPhone development team. Stay tuned for new upcoming OddTunes releases and additions to the loop recording capabilities.
From one musician to another ... it's Hang time. Ding, Ding, Ding.
