Wow! I’m convinced. As a 30 year veteran of synthesizers, ROMLERS, and more it is amazing.
My lone reason for finally buying an iPad.
Can’t wait to start using this live!
MUCH better than the previous video demo. Looks like it has some excellent potential.
Just found the piano sounds video! OMG it sounds so awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc7Q3AxMXWM
WARNING This is an iphone app that is double zoomed for iPad, The piano shown in video requires a $5 in-app purchase, if you like the rhodes that’ll cost an extra $5, if you don’t mind the extra cost and hidden fees, it’s a great sounding app. Make sure your midi interface is compatible before you buy.
The sounds in some of the Sampletank for IOS videos are pretty impressive. However, I just contacted IK Multimedia this week with a couple of questions. I received a prompt answer from them. So, they get points for that. My main concern was polyphony count, most specifically for the Grand Piano sounds. Their response was, the maximum polyphony to expect with only the Grand Piano patch loaded is 16 notes. If they had said 32, I could have worked with that. But 16 notes is extremely low. If you were to use a string patch on another MIDI channel, and play that at the same time as the piano sound using a second keyboard, you would be running out of notes instantly.
