Neo-Soul Keys for iPad is specifically designed for professional gigging or live studio work. Gospel Musician's goal was to build a professional app that could compete with hardware synths and desktop audio.
Gospel Musicians is one of the first app developers to feature flash memory streaming using Apple CAF lossless format. They worked directly with Apple's engineers to refine this new custom feature in iOS, which allows for larger samples to be streamed via the on-board flash memory. Not having to rely solely on a limited amount system RAM resources allows for a more rich and expressive sample playback experience, which almost equals the experience of their desktop predecessor versions. In fact, all but the extended effects are featured in the iPad version. All mechanical effects, Spring Reverb, Chorus, and Vibrato are present.
