Virtual Handpan

A handpan is a unique and melodic percussion instrument that consists of two convex steel hemispheres joined together to create a resonant, UFO-like shape.

It's played by striking the various tone fields on the top surface with the hands or fingers, producing enchanting and soothing sounds.

Handpans are known for their captivating, meditative qualities and are often used for relaxation, meditation, and artistic expression.

Virtual Handpan is a virtual instrument that recreates the sound of the handpan by using physical modeling and sound design. The idea is to expand the playable range of a standard handpan to as many notes as possible.

The result is 57 notes that can be played, something impossible to do with a real handpan that's limited to a maximum of 9 notes.
