Here's Your Chance To Win An iRig Keys Package For Your Favorite Pianist
AppAdvice has once again teamed up with IK Multimedia in order to offer you a chance to win one of three pianist packages. Each bundle includes one iRig Keys ($99.99) mini keyboard controller and one iGrand Piano ($19.99) for iPhone or iPad promo code. While it may not appear any more spectacular than other iOS piano synthesizers, iGrand Piano proves its magnificence with concert-quality sound reproduction of eight grand and upright piano models, nine optional studio-quality pianos, and a full set of features. By implementing Core MIDI, pianists have the opportunity to play on the built-in soft keyboard, nearly any MIDI-equipped standalone keyboard or controller by utilizing the iRig MIDI, or the iRig Keys. No matter which input is chosen, there's easy access to all of iGrand Piano's capabilities.

At the main screen is a piano selection gallery across the middle and four buttons along the top. Tapping the edit knob button adds adjustment knobs for volume, ambience, lid position, brightness, key release speed, tuning, and the ability to transpose. The next button is to configure the metronome with tempo and volume settings. The third button, a clef note, switches to the recording and playback system. Last is the general options and information menu. This is clearly a great way to perform your piano playing on-the-go, but go ahead and give it a test run by downloading iGrand Piano Free for iPhone or iPad. Designed as the perfect companion, the iRig Keys is a MIDI keyboard controller that provides a familiar physical means to play your mobile grand piano. Small enough to fit inside of a backpack and lay effortlessly on your lap, the iRig Keys features 37 velocity-sensitive mini-keys and connects directly to your iDevice or portable computer. In addition, players can even make some quick preference changes via settings buttons located along the top edge of the keyboard.
