MacProVideo has reviewed both iRig KEYS and iGrand Piano for iPad as a great combination for the musician on the move: "No requirement for extra adapters might make this the best choice for iPad and Mac musicians who require a portable keyboard."

Expert gear writer, Mike Watkinson took an in-depth look at both products and was mightily impressed!

Here are some of his comments on iRig KEYS:

"The iRig Keys has a slightly larger form factor than some of its competitors, for example the M-Audio Keystation Mini 32, but it does include 37 velocity sensitive keys. Those extra 5 notes gives us a full three octaves (plus one note!) lending the keyboard more spacious feel than you might expect from mini keys."

"A very useful editing feature of the iRig Keys which overcomes this is the ability to choose one of six different velocity responses - three fixed settings and three velocity sensitive settings (light, normal and heavy)."

"...the additional half octave, editing features, and no requirement for extra adapters might make this the best choice for iPad and Mac musicians who require a portable keyboard."

and on iGrand Piano for iPad, Mike had the following to say:

"Where other developers might be trying to squeeze a wide range of options into one app, IK multimedia are doing a great job with focussed ‘one app, one job’ releases."

"The piano instruments sound great"

"Where GarageBand sounds as though a limited range of samples have been pushed a little too far in terms of range, iGrand Piano has no such issue - the low notes are full and rich and the high notes maintain a realistic timbre."
