Gospel Musicians has announced the release of Neo-Soul Keys for iPad, a virtual electric piano app.
Neo-Soul Keys for iPad is specifically designed for professional gigging or live studio work. Gospel Musician’s goal was to build a professional app that could compete with any hardware synth and/or desktop audio electric piano solution.
Gospel Musicians is one of the first app developers to feature flash memory streaming using Apple CAF lossless format. Gospel Musicians worked directly with Apple’s engineers to refine this new custom feature in the iOS, which allows for larger samples to be streamed via the on-board flash memory.
Not having to rely solely on a limited amount system RAM resources allows for a more rich and expressive sample playback experience, which almost equals the experience of their desktop predecessor versions. In fact, all but the extended effects are featured in the iPad version. All mechanical effects, Spring Reverb, Chorus, and Vibrato are present.
