Pure Piano has gotten a ton of interest since its release and YouTuber Gavinski shares the enthusiasm! In the video he even compares the new app against a couple of long-favored grand piano apps on iOS.
Pure Piano is an excellent grand piano with a unique morph pad allowing experimental sounds such as pad sounds, reverse, percussive styles and intimate sounds somewhat similar to a Felt Piano. In this video I walk you through all the features, and give you a detailed comparison of how this sounds with some of the other best iOS Pianos: Ravenscroft 275 and the Korg Module Ivory American D. This video will be very helpful in letting you decide whether if you still have one or both of those, Pure Piano is still worth buying or not. I want to give my huge thanks to Michael Levy for providing the beautiful jazzy improv midi I use for this comparison, Some of you may know him as LinearLineman from the Audiobus Forum. Michael is not only very talented but also extremely prolific. You can check out hundreds of his improvisations at https://soundcloud.com/michael-levy-387395070
