Customer Reviews

Great for being FREE!

This app really thrives when partnered we the iRig keys or iRig keys pro.
The voices aren't the highest quality but the settings and controls are easy to use. I love the fact that IK multimedia made it so you can use sample tank and iGrand piano from within GarageBand it takes garage band to a new level.
The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the auto play tracks on the lowest key. Mostly because I play live a lot and if I accidentally hit the last key it's quite disturbing. But other than that I do love this software and would highly recommend this app as well as the iRigs pro they make a great team.


The number of free instruments is limited, but you can sample any of the instruments to see what the full version would offer. That is pretty smart. The quality is exceptional with nearly zero key lag and sounds that are pretty rock solid. While not as super high tech as some, the range of sounds is quite adequate making this a good app to use as an instrument. The on board effects are great too.

More tracks

Please let us use more than 4 tracks, 4 are nothing we need 8 or 12, please make this happen as I don't believe you will... Thank you
