Feel as if you're playing real bongos!

Combining the latest technology and years of professional drum experience, Bongos! is the most realistic drum app available today.

Overview

There are 3 different drum kits to choose from, including regular bongos, mini bongos, and a unique bongo jam. Other features include 15 music loops and 8 percussion loops to jam to.

The pitch sensitivity feature changes the pitch slightly depending on where you tap the bongos, just like real drums. The harder you hit, the louder they sound!

Bongos! for Leap Motion combines incredible sound, graphics and features to create an unbelievably realistic percussion experience!

Additional features
  • 3 professionally recorded 44.1 kHz high fidelity kits
  • 3 unique playing zones on each drum create a realistic sounding drum
  • Drum pitch sensitivity - the pitch changes depending upon where you strike the bongos, just like a real drum
  • The harder you hit, the louder they sound!
  • 14 music loops and 8 percussion loops

    The sound is too low, the controls are rubbish and hardly responsive, the app basically needs so much more work...

    I played around a little while. It's really hard to play contact instruments in the air, even with more sophisticated motion tracking controllers. This isn't as good as it gets, but it's not very amazing either. Low latency, but not very fun. (maybe it's just me) There are a few contact zones on the bongos and the latency is decent. I couldn't figure out how to open the menu though. The diagram didn't help. =)

    There's nothing else like this drumming app for Leap Motion. Anyone can play the bongos just by moving their hands in front of the computer screen. The app is easy to use, and has some cool music loops to play to. Highly recommended for anyone into bongos or drumming!

    Unfortunately this app although it has low latency it just does not respond well to your physical movements. Good attempt by the dev, there is so much possibility for the Leap with music creation. It just going to take a lot of thinking outside the box instead of trying to make preexisting instruments into Leap Motion ones.
