    An easy software to use and useful for piano practice. I wish it can support USB sound interfaces and not just MIcrosoft GS Wavetable Synth. The latency is quite distracting for practice.

    This is a really wonderful piece of free software - I would say its only flaw is that its free, because it really is worth paying for. I set it up with my sons Linux laptop and our Yamaha electric piano, and within minutes he was playing along, learning the keys, and applying the music-knowledge gained from his lessons. I applaud the authors of this software for making such a useful tool - alongside all the other great music apps and plugins and things that we have in the Linux world, this is a real gem. Definitely part of our standard kit as we develop the kids' music abilities .. heck, I might even try to find ways to contribute. Great work guys!

    This thing is amazing. I just spent all night playing Final Fantasy music. Once I figured out how to get the piano set up (which didn't require any additional software, just the right cord, and dialing in "PC Mode" on the Yamaha) then it worked right away. I seriously had a blast tonight. Thanks for making this! I even learned how to play the chocobo song. The only feature I'd request is a keyboard graphic at the bottom of the notes to show where to put your finger for those hard chords.

    Really pleased so far. Connects fine to the digital piano. Load up your midi file, and practice playing. Nice options for isolating left/right hand, different bars on repeat etc. It is also helping me to read music.

    No support for Cyrillic. Perhaps that's why I was unable to load to the program midi file. Design is not beautiful.
