iPad and chord playing apps - HELP!

Hi all,

I wanted to get a non musician to play some 'one finger' piano chords from an iPad in a live enviroment - so I bought a used iPad Air v1 and have installed:

• Chordion (£5)
• Dream Foot (£15)
• NaviChord (Free version no Midi)
• Sound Prism (Free Version no Midi)

There are pros and cons to all of them but the two that I'd like to get someone to operate are Chordion and/ or Dream Foot - however neither of these two have a piano sound or an EP sound (Navichord & Sound Prism have EP sound)

How can I get either of these two apps (Chordion/Dream Foot) to play an EP sound? I don't have garage band as it's a used iPad and apple won't let me download an earlier version. I'm looking for an internal ipad solution, NOT using the iPad to trigger a Macbook etc.
I don't want to use external hardware sounds. Ideally I want one audio cable coming out of the ipad, DI'd to a PA.

Is there a sound module (that has Piano/EP) that I can install on an iPad that can be triggered (internally) via either Chordion or Dream Foot? I've installed Sampletank CS for the iPad but even though there is a choice of 'SampleTank CS' in the Chordion Midi settings - alas nothing is triggered in Sampletank....

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

(Ps I'm new to iPad coming from G3, G4, G5, Macbook Pro - and so far I hate everything about the iPad as it seems it's been made to have as little user control as possible....)
