The ELECTRONIC PIANO SYNTHESIZER (EPS) is the worlds first piano synthesizer for the iPad. Based on a 32-bit realtime sound engine the sounds are computed on the fly and no samples are used.
The EPS gives you possibilities you don´t have with any other Piano, EPiano or Synthesizer on the iPad. You can adjust the sound while you play on the keyboard and hear the changes immediately. That is what you need to tweak your own sounds. The EPS is not only for EPiano sounds, you can also make sounds like bass, brass, bells, chimes, toms, vibraphone, synth pads...

Some issues*, but there is a lot to love about this one
*(running on an iPad 2 with iOS 6-ish)
Aside from a few Audiobus glitches when I get overly ambitious about the sonics. It happens to the even the best apps every now and again. The minus one star is really the somewhat boring user interface but I am really just sore because it took a while for me to "discover" this one. I think it was purchased in the earlier days of Audiobus when I would get most any crap that boasted compatibility. Lately I have had some time to do some exploring with the sound - even used it in my latest collaborative project and it was well received. Great range of control & if you dig FM synthesis this is really a must have anyway. One my favorites, for sure.
