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.

It features 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 USB, the Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer interface, or via Wi-Fi. Drive your soft or hard synths wirelessly from the sofa, or from another room. Pianist Pro can even be used as a MIDI sound source, driven by an external hardware keyboard.

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.

Musicians at all levels have raved about Pianist Pro. Visit our website ( for demonstration videos, a full description of functionality including the user manual, and more screenshots.

Customer Reviews

Pretty good

This is an alright app. The sampling for the instruments is pretty good. There were a couple things that would have raised the score for me. I bought this because it had the option of exporting audio as a wave. Yes it does this but in order to use that audio you then have to hook it back up to your computer and move it to a different area of your iPad. There are several music apps that have found ways around this limitation and since this product is not a DAW it should have an easier way to move the audio around. Seems to be a problem with a lot of the iPad music apps. Great functionality but terrible options for audio transfer. Fix this and I think it will be a great way to record piano and other sounds on the fly to be used with other daw software.

My Favorite Piano App

Even if just for the scales mode, this piano app is worth its weight in gold. Great recording capabilities and options, realistic sound, and fun to use, it's been my favorite piano app for quite some time. Others come and go, but I always come back to Pianist Pro! :)

Great MIDI controller

In addition to being playable as a keyboard (keys are the right size) this is a great keyboard for notation and sequencing. I used it with a Mac Air, and the response is immediate.
