Piano For You is virtual piano for Android
Piano For You is a full keyboard piano with 88 keys, including key labels and sustain pedal. It supports multitouch (Android 2.0 or later) and lets you perform some interesting features.
First, it allows you to record your takes. What's more, there's an option for two stacked rows. You can select the "area" you want to play and zoom in it. Scroll it by pulling down device's top edge or using trackball.
It's a good looking piano with the needed features. The sound could be improved though, as well as the latency, that makes it a bit laggy.
Piano For You has been developed by Pavel Alexeev, an individual developer who's doing a great job specially with this app, taking in account that he doesn't have the resources of a developing company.
We have to say that, from our point of view, the sound could be improved. However this isn't a Steinway & Sons and it doesn't aim to be. This is just a tool to entertain you or to "save your ass" just in case that inspiration comes when you are on your way. If you like playing piano or what to learn, this is truly recommendable.
- Good sounding (sampled instruments)
- Good looking
- Option for two stacked rows
- Low latency (compared to the rest piano apps)
- Custom instruments (record your own sample using microphone or open existent file)
- 128 MIDI instruments (they are not perfect, but might be interesting)
- MIDI over WiFi
- Full piano keyboard (88 keys)
- Nice key labels
- Fast loading (about 0.3 second)
- Multitouch support
- Sustain pedal
- No ads!
Select your favorite scroll mode in settings (my favorite is "Scroll by dragging keys")
Pressing trackball works as a sustain pedal, you can also enable onscreen pedal.
Latency is a real pain on Android devices, but I've done all I can. If you find an app with lower latency, I'll give you the full version for free, with your name in the credits :)
Note: latency is MUCH better on recent devices with Android 4.1.
Additional HQ instruments (Rhodes, Accordion and Church Pipe Organ) are paid, but hey, there are no ads!
You can also support me buying a full version - it inculdes all the instruments and missed features.
