There are numerous videos for Yamaha's Synth, Arp & Drum Pad app.

At some point, polyphony can be an issue on pretty much anything if you use enough split + layers + stereo samples etc. ;-)

On an iPad, polyphony will be more of an issue with some apps than others, and it will be more of an issue on a slower iPad than a faster one. Another variable is how much memory (not storage) is in the iPad, which especially affects how many different apps you can run simultaneously. You have to search that info out, as Apple does not publish it, but you can find it online. Some models have 1 GB RAM, some have 2, some have 4.

But maybe what you really want is just to buy an MX88 (or MOXF8)?

I think that was suggested for the OP, who was looking for other keyboards to try that would give him a sense of what the SL88 would feel like.

I am looking forward to SL73 being available. I always travel with a laptop (business or otherwise) - so this will be perfect. Too bad, SL73 is still nowhere to be be found in USA.

I tired again SL88 and compared it with Roland juno ds88 , some Nords and Yamahas, and still studiologics has the best keybed to me. I thought a lot about ipad and other sound source, but unfortunatelly this set up is a no go to me.

I am interested in getting a Studiologic SL88 Studio which has a Fatar TP/100LR Keyboard, does anyone know if the keys feels like plastic with no grip? or perhaps they like as in with some other brands like Casio and Roland which have with ivory feel?

I briefly owned the SL73 which has the same key action as the SL88 Studio. They are plastic and shiny and thus have no ivory feel to them. I did not have an issue losing grip on them though, but saying that I live in cold climate country and sweating is the least of my concerns. Unless you sweat at the fingers I struggle to see that being the main concern...more important than the sweat/grip is the action. It’s not light at all and if you are a) not willing to go through a learning curve or b) dislike heavy actions I’d say the TP100 is not going to be your cup of tea.

On the question of ivory-feel keys vs. smooth ones: I am an experienced, formerly professional pianist; I play a Casio PX-5S with textured keys and a Korg G1 Air with smooth. I also adore the Korg action.

I find I prefer the Korg keys because they feel like most acoustic pianos I play, which are not ancient (i.e., with real ivory keys). I used to own a Studiologic Numa (with Fatar board and textured keys, I seem to recall) which was a good value and very portable but too quirky for me.

As an amateur pianist I usually manage to adjust to the texture of keys usually pretty quickly...then again I am quirky like that. 😎
