Editors' review

It's a truism today that the computer has become a musical instrument, as much so as the guitar or piano. This software aims to make computer composition simple enough that even young children can be songwriters in seconds. We're not sure it hits this mark, with an awkward interface in particular that seems likely to put off kids raised on high-budget computer games.

The program's workspace is divided into separate lines, or tracks, for separate instruments. To get started, users open a new or preexisting song, and then add, delete, or customize the instruments. Melodies, tunes, and rhythms can be painted into each instrument line with a paintbrush tool. To our ears, the music created this way grew quickly monotonous, however. We would expect novelty-seeking children to grow quickly beyond this program's limited capabilities, and lose interest in a relatively short period of time.
