Perfect to pick out a tune! - This is exactly what I was looking for! I already play the piano, and read music. My need was something I could grab really quick or already had with me (laptop) to pick out a tune when I couldn’t quite hear it in my head. Sometimes I’m picking out church music or something and I just can’t access a piano to check a melody or the sing-ability of a particular version of something. Or something that seems completely unfamiliar to me. I used to use my tiny old MIDI machine, especially at auditions, but I might not have it with me, or don’t want to carry another piece of equipment around “just in case”. Note to those auditioning with it, when you’re asked to look something over then sing it, this may sound selfish, but use EARPHONES. For you, you’ll be able to hear it, and you won’t have to end up playing everyone elses sample for them because they weren’t prepared, and for them, you won’t be bothering others who are trying to go over a different tune.

Review by summanulla

minimal, ok for what it does - Works fine for what it is, a very minimal piano that can be played with keyboard keys or mouse clicks Piano sound is not awesome Top note in 3 octave view (or any other view we’ve tried) is c 2 octaves above middle c, which is not high enough for high soprano pieces. Would be much more useful for vocal work if the 3 octaves range could be set up and down.

Change window size? - Is there a way to change the size of the window? I want to have this on my screen alongside a sheet music PDF. Also, sometimes when I press notes on my keyboard, the notes do not sound, mostly when playing large chords.

Review by cpotters

Nice but needs some work to be really useful - Some features that would be nice to have: volume control - to match keyboard volume with other audio aps that are being used simultaneously, e.g. iTunes, etc. Size control - to shrink or expand the size of the keyboard. Settings memory - so that when that when launching the app, the keyboard returns to the setting (# octaves, volume, size, etc.) from previous use. Option to turn off the introductory jingle - cute but annoying!

Quick note checker - Sometimes my sight reading isn’t always as accurate as I’d like it to be, and this app is perfect for correcting mistakes while I learn. Interface is intuitive and simple, sound ok for what I need it to do. I don’t think I’ll be playing a concert with this app any time soon, and it’s great for just being there to serve as a learning companion and note checker.
