The ultimate piano instrument provides you with an extraordinary collection of ultra-realistic acoustic pianos along with built-in recording!

With high-definition stereo samples across multiple velocities, iGrand Piano brings you the most playable, expressive and beautiful sounding grand, baby grand, upright and specialty piano instruments available on a mobile device that you can play anytime and everywhere.
iGrand Piano gives you 8 world-class pianos (including one by registering) along with a capable recorder and metronome.

Record your rehearsals or performances as MIDI with both overdubbing and punch-in capability, then export your track as audio via E-mail or File Sharing or Audio Copy to other iOS apps. With the built-in MIDI Recorder, you can change the tempo of your piece or even choose to use a different piano AFTER you've completed your performance! For composers of any level, the MIDI Recorder lets you capture and develop ideas anywhere your mobile life takes you. iGrand Piano also includes some professional MIDI performances to help you audition the various piano instruments or just inspire your own creative muse!
The easy-to-use instrument editor puts real-time controls on the panel just above the keys to let you adjust the amount of ambience, the position of the lid (open, closed or anything in between), brightness, envelope release, key transposition and tuning. All edit knobs can be assigned to your choice of MIDI controllers for external fine-crafting of your instrument's sonic details.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
It's essentially a great app with quality sounds BUT am bitterly disappointed that this is not an iTunes '+' App, therefore having to purchase twice to have it on iPad (something I do not wish to do). Regret buying this.
IK Multimedia, you got it right on SampleTank which is a '+' (iPhone & iPad compatible) app, therefore please merge this into a plus version. I might, no actually I would even buy your other apps like Amplitube if you merged them into a plus version. Take note it's the truth, not just from me but many other users/potential buyers.
From a pro perspective - great!
This app is possibly my favourite piano library to sit down, play and compose with - no, it doesn't have the technical bells and whistles of pro libraries on a desktop (release samples, damper noise etc... Although it does still have a few like eq, nifty lid simulation, reverb control) but the way it responds to my Roland a-800 midi keyboard at least is just perfect- superior even to expensive libraries I have. I can just play and forget I'm not actually sitting at my digital piano - something about the velocity curve, it just fits the keyboard like a glove. And a lovely choice of different pianos, with different characters. Outstanding.
This app is dire need for an upgrade to take advantage of the new phones and iPad pros. It’s not allowing ultra-low latency although the processor is up to speed.

We appreciate your interest in an update and the overall feedback. We are always looking to improve our apps. Please feel free to share your comments and interests with the team here (https://www.ikmultimedia.com/contact-us/). In the meantime, make sure to check your Menu > Setting for the Latency controls. If you are using SampleTank in a host app, like Audiobus, make sure this app's Latency control is adjusted properly. The SampleTank app should offer a near latency free experience on iOS. Our support team would also be more than happy to see how they can help here. Please feel free to reach out to them here (https://www.ikmultimedia.com/userarea/my-products/).
