Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

While this application isn't guaranteed to create the next Mozart, it will make noise sound better if your kid likes to bang on the keyboard. Keyboard Music translates the sounds of various instruments, such as a piano, a guitar, or even steel drums, to your PC keyboard so you can "play" notes on each instrument. The main program screen display includes a map of a keyboard, with numbers that designate the location of each note (for example, the number 1 often equals the note "C.") Press a key and the sound will play. Click on the instrument image at the top of the page to try different sounds. While the sounds aren't the most realistic (most of the instruments resemble electronic horns), the program runs seamlessly and is very easy to use. The trial limitations are too short, in our opinion. Overall, this is a novelty program that while entertaining, won't offer much concrete information about playing "real" instruments.
