Ringheims Auto has announced the release of a new audio app for Android: Kalimba.
The Kalimba, also called Karimba, Thumb Piano, Lamellophone, Mbira, Sanza, among others, is a musical instrument from southern Africa. The keys are plucked with thumb or fingers, and the vibrations are amplified by a hollow box resonator or sounding board.
With this Android App you can experience this popular African instruments for yourself. In addition to playing you can also tune the instrument by making the keys shorter or longer like on a real Kalimba. Save your new tunings for later use. You can also try out several built-in tunings to get you started.
In the Pro version you can choose between four different sounds, as well as MIDI over WiFi. It costs Nkr9.90.
The Lite version is ad-supported, and comes with only two tunings and sounds.
