Greetings everyone. I'm honored to be a member of this great forum.

I have a question. I'm getting a new iPad in about week, it will be my second since the iPad 2, which I had two years ago. I remember that GarageBand on it had poor polyphony on it (only 7-8 notes when playing Rhodes, which was disappointing) So, I would like to know if polyphony has been increased in the GarageBand 2.0 and on newer iPads, such as iPad Air.

Any help is very appreciated, and thanks in advance. :)

Very few synth apps publish a specific polyphony because it depends on the processing power of the device.

Some that are power hungry will allow you to reduce polyphony to reduce CPU load.

I use one of the piano patches a lot, and have not noticed any note robbing,so they may have fixed whatever was causing the problem. it's also possible that some of the organ patches use 2 voices at once.
