At £13.99 you'd expect it to be lousy but IKMultimedia make great software so I'll be interested to hear what this is like! Could be great for gigging if it's even half decent.

Wow. This is very cool. But is there a hardware interface available for iPad that provides both MIDI and high-quality audio I/O?

I haven't used them, but you could check out the Griffin StudioConnect and the Alesis iO Dock.

Also the Tascam interface although I have no experience with it.

Need to ask the Garageband community for recommendations on how to connect, and how it compares (the free iGrand version with two pianos).

Guys, thanks for the pointers. I had heard of the Alesis but not the others. They all seem like they would work.

I've just read a brief review on the IK Multimedia forums from someone who gigged with iGrand.

"iGrand worked great on the live gig, very playable and great sounding on my iPad 3"

Pretty impressive for such a small app!

IK Multimedia forum thread.

Indeed.

The App Store lists the full version of the iGrand app as being 237 MB in size (not including the available expansion pack).

Wonder how much of that 237 MB is for the executables and how much for sample memory, and how that compares with the typical hardware DP?
