Gospel Musicians has released Neo-Soul Keys for iPad in the Apple App store. You can download all three versions
(Mark I Suitcase, Mark I Stage, Wurlitzer 200A) for FREE on a limited use basis.
Gospel Musicians tell us that Neo-Soul Keys for iPad is specifically designed for professional gigging or live studio work. They say that their goal was to build a professional app that could compete with any hardware synth and/or desktop audio electric piano
A spokesperson told us, "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."
