Handpan simulator app

Hello, While waiting to find the right handpan, is there a good handpan simulator app? I am practicing on a piece of paper now marked with notes…
I have an android phone. Thanks!

A great and free App is “oval Synth” with many scales and Sounds.

Oval Synth looks excellent, yet I have an Android phone and windows computer. Not compatible. Disappointed.

This is excellent for helping me to choose which scale to start with! Thank you

here you can play more scales and create every scale you want or see by any Handpan Maker.



Try using:

Or search for other virtual players



Great to play with Keyboard (on PC/Laptop/MAC) - dosn’t work so fine by touchscreen.

The Virtual Hang is modeled after a first generation Hang with an central Ding surrounded by eight tone fields. It is tuned to a D Hijaz kar scale , also known as the Persian Scale. This scale consists of the following notes: D, E flat, F sharp, G, A, B flat, C sharp. The tone fields span one full octave from D4 to D5 beginning at the bottom and alternating from left to right. The Ding is tuned to A3 which is a low fifth. The Gu side is currently not available.

nice tool to see Handpans Scales and Chords - great work for the Handpan Community by Robin BERGÈRE (https://rojb.net/)

And also a very cool Handpan Sequencer (by Spen Taylor)


Found this great tool via the MTH FB Group - original Post:


I wanted to share a project that I’ve been working on a little over lockdown…

Selecting and buying a handpan is huge commitment. Thousands of $s for 1 single scale - and that’s assuming you can find some access to the scales you’re interested in.

So I’ve set out to make a nice little digital tool for trying out different scales. Currently it’s super limited, has a bunch of minor bugs, bad samples and still needs polish, but here it is… :slight_smile:

I’d love any feedback, and if you’re a coder - feel free to jump in and make your contribution - it’s all open source :slight_smile:

Hello all, I have added sound to my Handpaner app (handpaner.com), feel free to check it out and send me feedback, always welcome ! Thanks ! (I might steal some ideas from other apps posted here ahah)


New good sounding virtual Handpan:

(playable on mobile phone /touchscreen or via Keyboard/PC)

Hi, If you are using Ableton Live, I made an Handpan Software instrument by sampling my C# Phyrgian. There are 15 samples per note, 5 for 3 different velocities. I sell it for a small fee on this website https://shop.sergiodaniels.ch/en/handpan-en
