"mPIANO is a MIDI controller that hides all control functions for polyphonic expression inside the keyboard of a grand piano."

Finally, something that makes the $4K Yamaha Montage sound like a bargain! And you get some onboard sounds...

I just switched from an older Windows machine to a not-quite-as-old MacBook Pro I bought and fixed up. Why? I like that Apple puts real quality work into their audio API, something I have yet to see happen with Windows or Android, and the fact that I can now run some software I couldn't get for Windows. And, I'm running Windows 10 under Parallels, so I can still run a couple Windows programs that aren't available for Mac. Can't go the other way.

I still have a Windows box hooked up to my digital piano to run Pianoteq, because that's all it needs to do. But that goes through an external USB interface, which takes care of Windows' never-get-it-right audio latency problems.
They seem to have only updated the Pro version. People who purchased the Pro upgrade through the basic app seem to be SOL. Their webpage is dead and their FB page hasn't been updated since 2013.

I wonder if I can get all the goodies by plugging it into my CP4.

The AU effects are there under the "Effects" button next to "Instruments." I can see stuff I have installed like Tonestack, Filtatron, SunVox and others. Haven't really played around with it much, though.

Under instruments, I get many, many copies of the same app, like 11 different identical icons for ThumbJam. I must be not understanding something.

Whenever I see one of these I keep waiting for the Mel Brooks moment when the camera pans over and reveals a real orchestra playing off to the side.

Has Bob Cobb recommended it?

I love 76! It was one of the first synths I bought. Anytime I review anything on iTunes it just disappears so I'll say it here. If I'm showing people cool iPad music stuff it's one of my go-to things as it's so simple.
