February 6, 2007 - Duets KPack Now Available!

Mark Holdaway's new book Kalimba Duets and Trios is now available, and it is awesome! It has a great variety of music for all types of kalimbas. This little instrument has always amazed me, but Mark has taken the kalimba to a whole new level with the music in his book.

You can download the KTabS files that go along with Mark's Duet book FOR FREE from your MyKTabS page. KTabS will play all the parts of the kalimba duet or trio on your computer and scroll through the music as it is playing. It is a fantastic way to hear the piece as a whole and get a feel for the music. And playing along with KTabS is a great way to practice-- you play your part and KTabS will play the rest.

To download the Duets files, go to the MyKTabS page . (You will need to login or register in order to access the MyKTabS page). Scroll down to the KPack section and find the "Duets" KPack. Just click on the name "Duets" to download the files and install them as a group on your computer.

If you don't already have the KTabS software, you can download a trial version by clicking here. The trial version will play the duets for 15 days. The full version of KTabS is available for purchase for just $30.

The KTabS Reader will also play the Duets files, and it is available for purchase for only $5.

To learn how to use KTabS to play multiple files at the same time, check out the "Playing Multiple Files Together" section of our online User Documentation. If you have any questions about how to use KTabS or how to view the new Duets KPack, feel free to contact us.

September 7, 2006 - Music from Mark's Books Now Available in KTabS

Mark Holdaway has produced several excellent books for the kalimba. Now you can purchase the KTabS files of the music from these books. These files are viewable with both KTabS and the KTabS Reader. This is an excellent way to get the most out of Mark's books. When you view a file with our software, you are able to see the tablature from the book on your computer screen. KTabS lets you play back the music, which is a different experience from hearing the music performed on a CD. KTabS gives you a more interactive playback of the music-- you can follow along line by line as the music is played, and start and stop the music at any point. With KTabS, it is also possible to hear more than one music file played at the same time. So any time Mark has an arrangement for a song in multiple parts, you can use KTabS to hear what they are supposed to sound like all together. Visit the KTabS Store to see which books are currently available in KTabS format.
