Oval Sound has created the very first digital HandPan instrument aptly named OVAL that allows you to play, learn and perform music thanks to its companion smartphone and tablet application.
Even though OVAL has its own companion application it can just as easily be connected to any MIDI compatible software depending on your preferences.
Watch the video below to learn more about how the digital HandPan is played and how you can play almost any sound you can imagine.
“The OVAL is an electronic musical instrument that connects to an App for smartphone or tablet and it can also be used as a controller connected to a computer.
Inspired by the HandPans family of acoustic instruments, the Oval provides total freedom to create sounds and it’s a tool geared towards music learning and performing. It allows you to both change and create sounds and it is also a tool for sharing your compositions with an on-line community of users.
• The external case is made of Solid Surface composed by natural materials –minerals like bauxite, marble and quartz–, natural resins and acrylic.
• Carefully designed, the Oval is light, portable, durable, minimal, simple and energetically self-sufficient.
• The OVAL is ergonomically designed and can be played in many ways. Highly sensitive, intuitive, easy, durable and (children-proof) resistant!
• Designed, engineered and made with care in Barcelona.
