Pianist Pro is a virtual piano designed specifically for the iPad, with the same great interface and style that has made Pianist the best known piano on the iPhone, and a whole host of new features too.
Containing the full 88 keys of a professionally sampled piano with configurable soft and sustain pedals, up to 11 keys can be pressed at once and react to the touch just like a real piano. Choose between single or dual keyboards with a configurable key size.
Pianist Pro has full MIDI import and export capability, allowing you to record song ideas while on the road and export them via MIDI to your Digital Audio Workstation back at the studio. You can also use Pianist Pro as a great master MIDI keyboard, either with the Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer interface, or via Wi-Fi. Drive your soft or hard synths wirelessly from the sofa, or even from another room. Pianist Pro can even be used as a MIDI sound source, driven by an external hardware keyboard or your DAW.
A built-in arpeggiator allows the user to create perfectly timed runs just by holding down a few keys, and complex patterns of notes and chords can be programmed into the arpeggiator and played back live. Pianist Pro makes it easy to play shuffle-beat blues piano, complete with walking bassline and overlayed jazz chords - all by simply holding down a single chord. Changing the chord changes the melody but maintains the tight rhythm provided by the arpeggiator. A drum machine offers an elegantly simple interface for adding rhythm, with a choice of drum kits to suit a range of musical styles. While a delay effect can be used to bring energy and interest to a synth bassline, or guitar or piano riff.
The 'Scale Piano' interface allows the user to select a musical scale from a large choice of presets (eg. Natural Minor or Pentatonic Blues) or define their own scales from scratch. Notes and runs on that scale can then be played back in any key, simply by sliding a finger up and down a virtual touch-pad on-screen.
A pitch bend / modulation wheel and volume pedal can be enabled which not only change the sound of the instrument and can be recorded live into a track, but also respond to the touch visually in a perfect emulation of physical controls. A modulation control adds vibrato to organs and controls filter cutoff on the synths for added expression in your performances. Both modulation and volume can be configured to operate any MIDI CC control (eg. filter cutoff or delay feedback) on an external synth.
The original iPhone Pianist was listed in the iTunes Top 100 Paid Apps for 2008, has been featured in a number of Apple advertising campaigns, has been recommended by such media sources as Fox News and The Mail On Sunday, and recently was listed in Sound On Sound's Top 20 Apps and T3 Magazine's Top 100 Apps.
Now, only available on the iPad, Pianist Pro takes Pianist to a whole new level of power, usability, and fun.
