Qiano is a fantasy musical instrument created to play with quartertones. Most western music uses semitones. Qiano uses smaller steps (quartertones). Each octave consists of two rows of hexagons. The lower row of each octave represents the normal semitone frequencies, the row above the notes a quartertone above. Qiano has both a live and pattern mode. The live mode has a three octave range, the pattern mode a one octave range. The application settings allow for both 440 and 432 Hz tuning.
