[prMac.com] Fort Lauderdale, FL (November 5, 2008) - MC Development has introduced iDjembe, an iPhone and iPod Touch application featuring the authentic sampled sounds of a West African djembe drum.
Just like a real djembe, tap the drum in the middle for a full, resonant bass tone or near the edges for higher tones & slaps.
"iDjembe is a great tool for learning how to play a hand drum, with realistic action and authentic sounds, " said Mike Cohen, founder and developer at MC Development. "Start a drum circle with iDjembe or practice iDjembe during school breaks or while traveling."
iDjembe uses the professionally recorded sounds of a djembe restored to pristine condition by Senegalese dance and drum teacher Ndakhte Ndiaye.
Shaped like a goblet, the Djembe is a skin-covered African hand drum played with bare hands. Djembe has been used on recordings by the Grateful Dead, Paul Simon, Ben Harper and many others.
iDjembe 1.0 requires an iPhone running OS 2.0 or later or a second generation iPod Touch with a built-in speaker.
Pricing and Availability:
iDjembe 1.0 for iPhone is only $.99 USD and available exclusively through Apple's App Store.
