What's NewMajor Update for Christmas!
A Songbook of Christmas tunes is now available for you to play with your handbells.
This new mode, found on the Title Screen, guides you through songs by highlighting the pre-assigned spectrals (buttons), allowing you to easily tap out these carols. Perform concerts without sheet music or musical experience. Classics like "Angels We Have Heard on High", "Jingle Bells", and "Joy to the World" are just a few of the fun choices available.

- Real handbell features

Change the way we interact with music. Using “Be Creative” mode, design original note layouts. Pick the location you want the note(s) to go and label your assignments. Play more than one note at a time, chords and even complete octaves with one finger. Choose your play style based on your mood – ring or tap. Your bell spectral set ups are automatically saved for quick future encore concerts.
SIMPLE TO PERFORM
Easily ring bells like a Master, just tap or swing your device. Breeze through the “How To” screens to discover bell ringing tips. With “Be Quick” mode, all your notes are pre-assigned in the key of C, more than 2 octaves for the iPhone/iPod Touch and 6 octaves for the iPad. Create your own music, perform for others – ring a solo, a duet or a trio. Play an impromptu concert ANYTIME . . . ANYWHERE.
EXPANSIVE COLLECTION OF 74 BELLS, RANGING FROM C2 TO C8
This is the largest range of rich, pure handbell tones available for the App Store. Contrast 13 tables, 26 pads, several trucks full of cases and 74 bells with the small space that mobile devices occupy in your hand. Hear the ping of the high C8 with the gong of the low C2 simultaneously.
REAL HANDBELL FEATURES
You have precise control over sustaining a note (allowing the sound to die naturally) or dampening a note (stopping the sound instantly). In a handbell choir, bells are often re-arranged in a unique order advantageous for a particular piece; this concept has been perfected, allowing you to ring or tap an entire song without breaking tempo. Utilizing multi-touch allows multiple bells to be rung with ease. Bell Spectrum transforms your device into the closest thing to a real bell.
The minimal price of this App buys you $60,000 worth of bells and their necessary equipment.
Potential side effects of enjoying this App:
- Picking up good tintinnabulations
- Learning to read music
- Forgetting that your device is not a real bell
Belltastic ballads by both bell beginners and bronze bellmasters
Close your eyes and grab the 74 bells in your hand.
