Perfect for what I needed - If you need to plunk out a melody, this application is WONDERFUL. Once you get used to which keys are which, this becomes a very easy to use, responsive app. It doesn't let you play chords, so if you're looking for a full fledged piano, this is not the app for you.
This App Is Horrible! - I was not looking for a professional style app, just something that I can mess around with and play some quick jingles when I wanted to. Well this one ain't it! For starters, the volume is extremely low with no way to turn it up. When I contacted customer support, their only solution was to hold down the shift key as I was playing. Well that would work out great if I had three hands. The only thing that they could tell me was that they "might" raise the volume a little bit in the next version. HUH?! I guess if you were in a quiet room, with noise-reduction headphones on, you might be able to hear the faint sound of what you are trying to play, but not likely. And forget playing along with your favorite tune. IT AIN"T GONNA HAPPEN! The lack of a preferences/option screen makes it really hard to do anything but sit there and feel like you just got scammed! Why does apple allow apps like these to be in the app store? This is ridiculous.

works on its own but does NOT work with Pro Tool - I got this app from the App Store because I wanted something that would convert my QWERTY mac keyboard into a midi controller for my softsynth plugins inside Pro Tools (12) however it does not seem to work or be able to do that at all. I tried any combination of the settings... is there a way to do this? This app has a great looking graphical interface, better than some others out there
CUTE IS RIGHT - SIMPLE DOES WHAT IT SAYS but SOUNDS LIKE THE OLD STYLE FAKE INSTUMENTS THEY USE TO USE IN KARAOKE COUPLE OF NICE FEATURES WORTH THE 3 BUCKS FOR A KID
Neat, Simple and Works - I’m a guitar player. I don’t have a midi keyboard. This is perfect for entering note sequences and chords for a software synth in Garage Band, Guitar Pro or similar programs.
