App Description

This is by far the best app to record full length songs! Now I can change any part of it without any hassle. I love this app so so much! - Doctor Songwriter Who ★★★★★

Piano Studio is an amazing tool for any striving musician and the possibilities for music composition are endless. - TouchMyApps, Grab It!

Awesome app. Let's you totally customize your chord voicings. Layout is absolutely brilliant. I've never been this excited about an iPhone music app. Or probably any app for that matter. - Benyamin5 ★★★★★

Featuring a unique and truly playable interface designed specifically for the iPhone, PianoStudio lets you compose and perform complex songs that are impossible to play with other apps that limit you to tiny keyboards with limited ranges.

PianoStudio is the first piano app for the iPhone and iPod touch that helps you explore musical ideas, learn songs, write your own tunes, and even play along with your iTunes music.

By placing individual notes, entire chords, and even complete musical phrases onto a set of buttons that you can arrange and play, you can write and perform real piano music with chord progressions, "two-handed" patterns, and melodies in Allegro, all right on your iPhone or iPod touch.
