  • Not up to snuff for using live

    This was great at one point, never had issues, but along the way if lost its way, now I get frequent nasty distortion and glitches in the sound , I'm using an iPad Air 2 and it should be more than enough CPU power to handle this. I wouldn't recommend this for live situations.
  • Best initial sounding EP

    I've tried them all and always go back to iLectric. Unlike many other apps the iLectric EP was program right in terms of playability and sound. However, I can't use this app in live situations do to the intermittent distortion. Please fix it! Five stars when this is fixed.
  • GROOOOOOVY!

    If you are looking for great 60's - 80's electric pianos this is it! Great sounding Hohner Clavinets, Wurlitzers and a very cool Hohner Pianet N (think The Zombies)! However, imho, this app doesn't have the greatest Rhodes sounds... I'd look to another well known iOS app for an accurate Rhodes sound ;)
  • Great sounds only hampered by iOS 9 issues

    Ever since iOS 9 there has been distortion when changing samples. I can no longer play any Ikmultimedia apps running in the background in unison, let alone by themselves on my Mini II without sample switching causing notes to hang and distortion noises. Since 2013 I have been using these apps, but the ability to live gig on an iPad Mini II/Air 1 has diminished with the advent of iOS9. Everything was fine before. Please fix!
  • Great EPs

    Very, very good Rhodes, Wurli and Clav. And some other fun extras like the CP-70. Very useful on small gigs. One thing to fix: switching between this and iGrand triggers several very loud notes from the app that's being opened (using an iPad Air). Very awkward in live settings. And please give us an update with 10-12 user presets. Thank you! :-)
  • really decent sounds

  • One of the best EP apps

    This app has some of the best EP sounds on iOS. Not bad at all.
  • The #1 best Electric Piano App!

    By Glishba
    This app has the best selection of various electric piano models and they all sound fantastic. Super realistic. There are great controls included for things like Chorus, Reverb, Flanger, Drive, etc. Great sounds, great to play, this is my go to electric piano app, and I have plenty of other on other apps to pick from.
  • Loved the update and was about to buy the new pack, but...

    ...fails to load sometimes. Very crash-prone. I just left a one-star negative review and went back to try it again after several deletes/reinstalls and a couple of reboots and behold: it works again. Still very wary about working this potential unreliable app into my live gig rig. Perhaps time will tell if it remains stable; then perhaps I'll consider purchasing expansion pack 2. Keeping my fingers crossed 'cause the dang thing sounds great.
