"I could easily imagine using ChordPolyPad in a live context. With a pad preset ready to recall for each song and that ‘full screen’ pad view option, it would be a very neat tool. However, for me, the app is going to find itself well used alongside my other MIDI performance apps both for iPad-based and desktop-based MIDI recording duties. ChordPolyPad is a brilliant tool with a well thought-out interface and, if your keyboard playing sucks as badly as mine, it comes highly recommended."

"A new reference in this category, the best in this category... As I always say, playing chords on an iPad is not easy, for this reason, we need an App to help us, that is what this App is for, but ChordPolyPad is more than this... A new 'bench mark', a Must Have Killer App!!!"
