Tingalin is a music application for iOS and Android based on the Albanian lute Çifteli (meaning “pair of strings”). This unique application is educational and best of all it is lot of fun! Five melodies are preloaded to make you look like a pro right away!
Tingalin is played by tapping the 14 notes on the instruments handle. Each note is recorded in the tab and the entire melody is played by shaking the device, as if strumming the real instrument. Each strum up and down (meaning shake of the phone) a note is played.
Tempo is controlled by the frequency of your strumming! Tuning can be adjusted to your prefered pitch using the slider control +/- 1 octave.
