A Virtual Concert Piano

✓ WST Grand (a grand piano based on Warren Trachtman’s piano samples)
✓ Bright Grand
✓ Legend EPiano
✓ Rhodes EPiano
✓ Rock Organ
✓ Honky Tonk Piano
Some midi files from Bernd Krueger / www.piano-midi.de played with Grand Piano Pro:
Up to 256 notes can sound simultaneously.
Grand Piano supports multi-touch i.e. you can press multiple keys at the same moment. The number of simultaneously pressed keys is only limited by your Android device.
If your devices supports screen pressure, Grand Piano can use this to change the loudness depending on the strength of you touch. Velocity via Midi is supported too.
The Midi implementation also supports sustain (“hold”) pedals.
Midi via USB
Grand Piano supports Midi via USB, i.e. you can connect your keyboard or other midi source to your Android device to play Grand Piano e.g. from your keyboard or to play e.g. a midi expander from Grand Piano. You need an Android device with USB-Host support (e.g. the Asus TF101, Acer A500 or the Galaxy Nexus), at least Android 3.1 and a class compliant Midi/USB interface (i.e. a Midi/USB interface that does not need a driver on Windows/Mac) for this. It’s not necessary to root your device.
Grand Piano Pro includes a player for standard midi files and comes with 53 midi files included. You can easily play midi files stored on your phone or select a midi file in your phones web browser. The playback speed can be adjusted.
