editor's review

If you love music and you are not getting accompaniment then you can try to use the software PianoBooster 0.6.4 for getting the accompaniment in order to continue to play for a very long time. Also this will be funny way of learning music and at the same time you can also learn the very basics of reading various musical notations that are available on the internet which you can download locally or else continue to learn from internet. While you have the option to play along to the CD or the standard MIDI that is available on internet the basic difference of using this is that it has got the excellent feature of listening and reacting to the music that you are playing on the MIDI keyboard.

This will take care of playing the standard MIDI files and then will allow the necessary changes to the speed at which the playback will be played and can also control the total transpose of the music. The scrolling musical stave will show notes of one part while there are several parts running on the complete music arrangement. While the notes scroll on the screen you can play along and learn on the midi keyboard.

PianoBooster is a fun way of playing along with a musical accompaniment and at the same time learning the basics of reading musical notation. The difference between playing along to a CD or a standard MIDI file, is that PianoBooster listens and reacts to what you are playing on a MIDI keyboard.

The PianoBooster project plays standard MIDI files and allows you to change the speed of playback and transpose the music etc.There is a scrolling musical stave that shows the notes for just one part from all the parts in the complete musical arrangement.

PianoBooster has been designed to allow you to play along on a midi keyboard with the scrolling notes shown on the screen. The notes you press on the keyboard appear as coloured lines on the musical stave, the colour of which depends whether you have pressed the right or wrong note.

A different musical instrument sound is used for your playing depending whether you are playing the right or wrong notes. This feature also allows PianoBooster to be used with printed sheet music so you can hear if you are playing the right notes while at the same time keeping your eyes on the printed score. The music accompaniment will automatically wait for you to find and play the correct notes in the piece.
