Luckily for us there is this app that is well made and have loads of virtual instruments inside that is laid out like a hang instrument. So it is of course tied into scales as there is not the full twelve notes. This is an advantage as it makes improvisation easy and the octave changes are easy to implement. Some effects are built in and recording as well.
The sounds are good and there is no ads and free!
Also like that there is midi out, so can be used to control hardware.
One thing to point out is that having this layout breaks the normal piano thinking and at least for me it makes me come up with a different type of playing rhythmically and melodically.
So for live recording very interesting. (Depending on device/latency)
