"Wicked cool"

January 07, 2005  |  By DonSL777

 |  Version: MakingMusic 2.61

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The GUI is simple, easy to use, and functional. I found the ability to reorganize instruments into categories to be helpful, and there are plenty of external links provided for you to click should an instrument pique your curiosity.

After downloading it for the first time, I spent nearly two hours clicking through the instruments, reading interesting historical facts, listening to sound samples, and visiting dozens of external sites.

This is a well written and entertaining application. Kudos!

"Good work!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This would have been handy to have during my early days in music ed. However, I have to agree with prior posters regarding caching and additional technical information for each instrument.

I'd also like to see the addition of the Sousaphone - being a Tuba player myself, I often have to explain to non-musical types that the horn I play is not what they've seen on the football field (although I spent years suffering through marching band).

Nice job overall, though. Keep up the good work.

"Good educational tool"

June 19, 2003  |  By Paolo Cordone

 |  Version: MakingMusic 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I think this is a wonderful application, especially useful as an educational tool. My main qualm is that it needs an active Internet connection even for launching. I have used the cache in the hope of being able to go through the instruments in a classroom situation, alas, it is not possible. Although the info is there, there's no way of getting it (a partial workaround is to connect to the Net, open MM, disconnect without quitting and using it. it has worked, however, it is awkward.
The other thing is that any of the emails I have sent to the author (suggestions, instrument submissions) have not been answered or even acknowledged. Anyone else had this experience?

"This will make it perfect...."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
If you provide the pitch range and customary clef information for each instrument, this application will become a real value for pro and amateur musicians who need this information for compositions and arrangements they are working on. THAT would lead me to give five stars. Other than that, this is an excellent application!
