-- Differences to other instrument apps ----------
✓ Low latency audio
Low latency audio is a weak spot of Android (see http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=3434). On the Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.1/Jelly Bean, low latency audio is finally possible. Keyboard Sounds is one of the very few apps already supporting this! On other devices, Keyboard sounds provides lowest possible latency.
✓ High quality samples
Many instrument apps use the midi samples build in to Android which results in low audio quality. Keyboard Sounds comes with high quality samples for all contained instruments.
✓ Support for external keyboards and expanders
On devices with Android >= 3.1 and USB host support (e.g. Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, Acer A500, Asus TF101, ...) you can connect an external keyboard or midi expander. You can play Keyboard Sounds from your external keyboard or play an external sound generator from Keyboard Sounds.
✓ Midi file player included
The included midi player works with any standard midi file stored on your android device. You can output the midi events via Midi/USB (if your device supports it; see above)
