App recommendations for worship/ambient pads?
Our church does not have a keyboard player so my wife has been filling in by using the iM1 app on an iPad Air 2 and Casio privia px-160 as the controller. She is basically providing fill with some pads and iM1 has worked fairly well for this. However is there any other apps that we should consider for warm ambient pad sounds? I saw that iwavestation just came out. How about it or korg module with the triton pack? Something else? The worship leader uses Mainstage when he plays keys but we wanted to stick with an iPad setup to keep things simple. We'd prefer something more preset driven.
One issue with the live setup is changing presets in iM1 will cause whatever you're playing to stop. Any recommendations on how to avoid this? I know a lot of keyboard players will use two keyboards and I assume this scenario would be one where having two keyboards would allow you to change a patch on one while continuing to play on the other. Any way to accomplish this with iM1? We were thinking connecting another midi keyboard and putting it on a different and then use iM1 in multi mode. But then you lose out on the preset combis it appears?
