Ratings and Reviews
The best iOS piano app
Of all the piano apps this is the one I keep coming back to, especially the "Baby Grand" in the expansion pack. I think it's the best recorded sample set the company has done and it affords the dynamic range to actually play with expression. If you can only have one or don't want to spend the money like I did to try everything, just get the Baby Grand sample and enjoy!
Doesn't make sense it said half price but I got half of product . I had 3 pianos due that I bought irig pro so I bought the special now I have a total of 9 which means I got an extra 6, not what was specified . I want what I paid for nothing more nothing less. Ikmtimedia main office is in sunrise fl and I work right across the street from IK I'll nicely walk in and ask to get what I paid for or my money back. The product itself is is good but I'm not happy . It's a 5 star product but I'm gonna give them 3 stars just cause I feel like I got ripped off.
Sounds good, really needs keyboard
I downloaded the iPhone version. The sound is good, pretty convincing to my ears. The sample songs demonstrated a lot of nuance -- both delicacy and power, depending on how the notes were played. If I had an external keyboard I would probably like it a lot.
The on-screen keyboard, though, isn't really practical. 2/3 of the screen is taken up by pretty pictures of instruments or control knobs, leaving 1/3 of it for keys. For some reason, hitting the top half of the key doesn't work -- a shaded overlay displays and no note sounds. Key volume is controlled by where you touch -- further "down" on the screen is louder. That's a nice idea as a way to give some expression. The problem is that the black keys are shorter! This means that you can't play them as loud as the white keys. Try to move upwards to balance them out and you rapidly run into the shaded bar that prevents the top half of the keys from playing.
I don't play enough piano to justify buying the keyboard. If I did, I'd probably like this app. With the onscreen keyboard, though, I will probably not use it a lot. If you like the sound of a good piano, it's worth downloading to make your own decision.
