Easy Strum is:
.... an autoharp for the IPad.
.... one of the easiest musical instruments in the world. From no musical ability you can be playing beautiful arpeggiated chords in under 60 seconds.
.... unique. Strum the piano like a harp, or the glockenspiel like a harp, or any instrument you can think of like a harp (via wireless midi to your D.A.W).
.... quick, you can immediately play chords effortlessly with just one finger (or multiple fingers for Rachmaninov style flourishes :)
.... simple, it has six built in instruments: Piano; Glockenspiel; Harp; Celesta; Sitar and Marimba (no wifi config needed, on board sounds!).
.... a wireless midi controller that can control any Software instrument in your D.A.W if you want more control/sounds (e.g. Garage Band, Logic) for ultimate flexibility and scalability.
.... configurable. Change the note range, chord type for each row, wifi note on times.

This is awesome
I had downloaded the Lite version but wanted the piano, so glad I bought the full version it's amazing
The piano sounds beautiful, the sitar is a gut laugh and all the other instruments (glockenspiel, harp etc) sound just like you would expect them to.
It's just like an omnichord but with proper instruments.
It would be good if you could record a song, but if you use the wireless midi out to your daw you can record whatever your playing using Easy Strum as a controller. Like the previous reviews said just think of it as an instrument and use your daw to do any song recording.
For once the wireless midi is fantastic, no noticeable latency and setting up the wireless midi network was a snap.
Amazing. Favourite app so far this year. 5 Stars!!!!!
This is fantastic. I have no musical ability but I can now play along with any song. All you need to do is look up the chords for a song and you're off, the app makes it easy to instantly select and play any chord. I'm playing the piano as if it were a harp, mental!
The instruments supplied are beautiful, piano is my favourite of them, so good.
Favourite app of the year.
Very nice app. Sounds are good and easy to play. Have a few ideas that would make it even better. Are you open to suggestions for upgrades?
