App Store Description:

Ting provides 12 different percussive sounds originating from t(h)ings that can be found in most of ordinary households. Each sound is carefully multi-sampled and processed with the common goal to be musically playable. Ting is intended to be a creative tool and a substitute for ordinary drum and percussion instruments. Altogether ~500 individual samples are used to make this instrument.

In addition to the sounds, there is an EQ, a room simulator, a reverb and a compressor.

Tweaking parameters for each sound:

* Pan
* Gain Level
* Dynamics
* Room amount
* Reverb amount
* Pitch (-12 semitones to +6 semitones)

Global parameters:

* EQ - Treble, Midi and Bass gain levels
* 5 different rooms and 6 different reverbs
* Reverb decay time and a global reverb level
* Compression amount
* Output Level

Sounds available:

CAR KEYS - A subtle hit, works great as a hihat substitute
SILVERWARE - Fork and Knife
BIG BOX - A large wooden box with some junk inside slapped with the fist
FLOOR STOMP - Stomping the floor makes a great bass drum!
HAND CLAP - Natural hand clap
POT - A clay pot tapped with a finger
PAPER SCRATCH - Two papers rubbed against each other. Works as a shaker!
TOY DRUM - A kid's drum hit with a plastic stick
SOFA SLAP - Hand palm on the office sofa
STICK ON EDGE - Wooden stick on a table edge
SNUSDOSA - A small round box with screws inside tapped
FINGER SNAP - Natural finger snap

Rooms available:

HOME OFFICE - A quite soft room with balanced reflections.

What's new in v1.0.1

Now supports automation for all continuous parameters.

iPad Screenshots:

As Klevgränd is already very well known for their established premium-tier [and highly intuitive] apps in the iOS Music circles, I can’t help but wonder how other iOS-musicians are enjoying this particular app, “Ting.” I was kinda, sorta, a bit surprised that no one has yet to chime-in regarding their personal experiences while first messing around with the product. Considering the price ($4.99 USD), it is almost worth paying for the app just to see what it could do. A solid majority of Klevgränd’s apps are synonymous with quality and easily start at twice the price of “Ting” when off-sale, and those apps generally fall between four (4) and five (5) stars on average in the App Store. Of course Klevgränd has on rare occasion disappointed us with a paid app that for one reason or another oddly underperforms, and sadly falls into the <= Three (3) star bucket. Thankfully this is NOT the norm for this particular developer.

So, what do you all think?

Is it a “great” app that would fall in the 4 to 5 star category?

Does it simply “not suck” (read: a solid 3.5 to 4 stars)?

Is it just not worth the space on an iPad, even with TONS of storage readily available (read: 0 to 2.5 stars)?

Maybe, it is just “painfully average” with a solid 3 star line-up?

To me, based on first looks, and a few write-ups here and there, the word that I would choose is:


It seems like it would bring one back to those happy moments as a child, making beautiful music with whatever the hell could be scavenged around one’s childhood home. That said, if it has the power that I would expect a company like Klevgränd to invest into it thereby bringing it into the premium-tier, even if it functions almost like a “toy”, that may not necessarily be a bad thing at all. If it sounds like a “real instrument”, e.g. uses multiple high quality samples, and those of us with the chops to embrace it get a satisfying trip down memory lane, well, IMHO it would most definitely be worth its current $4.99 price tag!!!

Please share some thoughts peeps. I am actually Jonesing to try “Ting” out, and take her for a ‘test drive’, but I’d surely love to hear some viable opinions first so I may know what exactly I am getting myself into! 😉😆😂

Now with full automation of all continuous parameters!
It was my main wishlist item. Glad it took so little time.

Some of us did, in the AUv3 Facebook group. Plus there are some examples here on Discchord.
I find it quite satisfying because of the way everything is packaged together. Sure, it’s like a glorified sample pack, in some ways. The “glorification” matters, including the roundrobin samples. Early on, people missed the fact that each instrument has dozens of samples. This kind of thing matters a lot.
