ZX Piano: A nostalgic 8-bit synth that even Sir Clive could use

We just love this super simple retro synth! Though the mighty Commodore C64 always had the best tunes, there's no denying that some clever coders could really make the ZX Spectrum sing! ZX Piano offers 7 predefined loops to play along to using just one basic, but authentic, tone. There is no record function, so you are limited to live performances. As it stands ZX Piano is big on nostalgia but small on features, hopefully a future update will add more tones and loops.

It's nice see computer platforms from the golden age of home computing make a small comeback on the iPad. While we enjoy seeing emulation of specific features and games, we can't help but wish for more complete emulations, such as those that exist on Windows and Mac OS X. The extra horsepower of the A5 would certainly aid this endeavour.
