Sound is five stars! But...

Version 1.3.4
I am professional pianist. It is either Bechstein or Blüthner behind these Samples. The others on offer dont. The source is logically the boss.
But, come on boys. A couple of bucks for an app designer for a luxury app is not too much to ask. It looks and feels horrible.
It works, but someone tried the concept of anti-workflow here.
Where is audio recording? (Just midi). Abbrevevations No one knows. VJ. Video-djay? A HUGE wheel for the hammer sound.
No midi export. No midi import. Massively misused interface estate space. Intuitive as a quantum computer.
But still, the sound is too goog. Korg just doesnt have a Bechstein to sample from. Neither does iGrand, which I use too. Nor all of the others. Except huge banks for PC or Mac.

Diese App ist den Preis wert!

Version 1.1.1
Ich beobachte und kaufe mobile Piano-Apps für das iPad schon seit genau zwei Jahren. Ich habe alle großen Apps einschließlich relevanter Piano-In-App-Käufe auf meinem iPad.
Von allen hatte mich bisher die CMP Grand Piano App mit der Erweiterung "Concert Grand" am meisten überzeugt. Für diese App (17,99 Euro) und den In-App-Kauf (7,99 Euro) fallen also zum Zeitpunkt meiner Bewertung (08.01.2017) zusammen Kosten von rund 26 Euro an. Mit der App allein erhält man schon die zwei qualitativ hochwertigen Grundklänge "Grand Piano" und "Jazz-Piano", wobei die App anzeigt, dass "Grand Piano" ein "Steinway D Concert Grand Piano" ist. Ferner wird angezeigt, dass die In-App "Concert Grand" auf einem Bechstein-A190-Flügel basiert. Ich habe mich bisher immer gefragt, ob es auf dem iPad noch besser geht.
Es geht besser. Ich brauchte allerdings erst ein neues iPad Air 2 mit 128GB Speicher, um das "Colossus Concert Grand" mit 14GB laden zu können. Auf explizite Nachfrage habe ich von Crudebyte per E-Mail erfahren, dass es sich um einen Bechstein-D280-Flügel handelt, den ich mir sonst nicht leisten könnte - abgesehen vom fehlenden Platz...
Die App "Colossus Piano" selbst ist kostenlos, nur die In-Apps kosten etwas. Beim Preis von 50 Euro für "Colossus Concert Grand" muss man schon etwas überlegen, aber nachdem ich den Sound über Studiokopfhörer gespielt habe, kann ich sagen, dass ich mich noch lange über diesen Kauf freuen werde. Es dauert bei 14GB natürlich einen Moment, bis die App gestartet ist. Aber dann möchte man kaum noch einen anderen Piano-Sound spielen...
Danke an Crudebyte für die ständige Weiterentwicklung der Apps! Ich wünsche mir, dass man den Kunden in Zukunft noch weitere Innovationen präsentiert. Jetzt muss ich aber zurück ans Klavier...

Amazing Sound

Version 1.0.0
Really, I'm in love with this App and his great sound. Thank you Kurt Ader for making this sounds. I play it with the Korg Kronos on stage.

A Dream come true...

Version 1.0.0
Since I was a Teen, I've dreamed of a REALLY portable Piano.
Then I came along the YAMAHA Pf-10, The Wurli, the Fender Rhodes and so on...
Now I'm a 60+ Grandpa, who owns an iPad pro and I swear, my "Teenie-Dream" come true!
OK, You will need some SSD-Space for that 14 gig "Colossus" (sic!), but with the wright MIDI-Controller Keyboard (weighted action, please), You will be pleased with a beautiful grand sound.First I've tried BT-MIDI with my KORG microkey keyboard: It's okay, but with a latency of 5 ms and a bunch of Stereo-Voices the Hardware begins to stumble. I prefer a MIDI-Cable Connection from the iRig Pro into my 88-key KORG KROSS.Just beautiful.Thanks, Crudebyte, but PLEASE make the Velocity-Curves "Save-able", so you can make a switch between different Controller-Keyboards, instantly
